In a recent interview with Sirius XM shared to Youtube, Shawn Levy, who also hinted at delays in the movie last week, was asked about the dynamic between Wolverine and Deadpool and how the fight sequences panned out between Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds. To this, Levy replied that “both guys” would often set it up so the other wins a battle. Especially Reynolds, who Levy claimed was “amazing at wanting Deadpool,” to be the one that loses at every turn.  

The Canadian director explained that Reynolds feels so because, while “awesome”, Deadpool is a “deeply flawed character” while “Wolverine is Wolverine”. According to him, Reynolds “operates” from the audience’s perspective. If Wolverine winning over Deadpool is the most desired outcome for fans, then that is how the movie should go in the 46-year-old’s mind. Particularly because both actors are “extremely grounded” and such fans of each other!

Apart from hinting at what the upcoming fight sequences might look like, Levy addressed another rumor. This one had something to do with a Grammy-winning music maestro.
