Earlier today it was reported from The Wrap that Ryan Reynolds would appear as Deadpool alongside Hugh Jackman in Logan. Since that report both Ryan Reynolds and director James Mangold have confronted the rumor.
Reynolds took to twitter to calm fans down and let them know that Wolverine will be a solo adventure, meaning no Deadpool in this one folks.
Sadly, not true. Prisoner 24601 is on a solo mission. https://t.co/5czBmMRfY1

Director James Mangold then took to twitter to reassure fans that Deadpool will not appear in Logan and even went on to call out The Wrap for the false report.

While it would be amazing to see Deadpool and Wolverine interact, it does make sense for them to be kept separate. The tone of Logan seems to be much grittier than Deadpool and might not suit the comedic fun that is Wade Wilson.
Set in the future of 2024, Wolverine and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation lead by Nathaniel Essex is destroying the world leaving it to destruction, with Logan’s healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier’s Alzheimer’s forcing him to forget. Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine.
Logan will land in theaters on March 3, 2017.
