Watch: Ryan Reynolds & Hugh Jackman Attempt to Call a Truce by Making Ads for Each Other’s Companies

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have tried to call a truce… and it hasn’t gone well.

The Deadpool and Wolverine stars have long had a playful jab fest on social media, particularly from Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth, always keen to throw shade Jackman’s way since appearing in the unfortunate X-Men Origins: Wolverine. And thank goodness for that, because this back and forth is all we have since it’s looking increasingly unlikely that we’ll be getting the Deadpool-Wolverine team-up movie that fans have been clamoring for.

The attempt at the “truce” finds Reynolds and Jackman making ads for each other’s companies: Reynolds’ alcohol brand Aviation Gin and Jackman’s Laughing Man Coffee Company. Reynolds went all out and spent a big amount of cash with his effort; Jackman… not so much. Enjoy.

Jackman can be seen playing former politician Gary Hart in the drama The Front Runner and will soon be heard as a voice in Laika Studios stop-motion film Missing Link. Reynolds can soon be heard as the titular Pokémon in Pokémon Detective Pikachu and will be starring in Michael Bay’s Netflix action film, 6 Underground.
