So, I don’t know if you’ve heard but there’s this thing called the 10 Year Challenge doing the rounds on all forms of social media.
The now-viral challenge has seen people sharing two comparison photos which are 10 years apart, to basically show how far they’ve come in life. In other words, they share a ‘hot’ picture and a ‘not-so-hot’ one to get likes.
You can’t get away from it, so if by some miracle you’ve managed to escape its grip you’re one of the lucky ones. Seriously, it’s all I’ve seen on Facebook and Instagram lately and it’s sending me under.
But one take on the challenge that’s piqued my interest and has actually made me smile this morning is Deadpool’s excellent trolling of Hugh Jackman.
Proving that the bantz will never die between our favourite superheroes – aka Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds – the official Deadpool Twitter account shared their thoughts on Wolverine’s 10 year glow-up (or down).
Hey @RealHughJackman, took care of your “Ten Year Challenge” for you.

It isn’t until you see the pictures attached that you realise just how savage the tweet is; rather than focusing on Jackman’s glow-up, they showed Wolverine in all his glory on one side, next to the ‘X’ which marks the grave of Wolverine after his untimely death in Logan. Yikes.
Obviously, the tweet pulled at quite a few heartstrings, with many responding that it was too soon to joke about Logan’s demise. And I agree, it’s waaaay too – oh who am I kidding, I think it’s hilarious and can’t wait for Jackman to reply.
I can’t blame people for being upset though; after all, the Australian actor has officially announced his retirement from the role and has even rejected several appeals from Reynolds for a Deadpool/Wolverine collaboration.
Especially when Reynolds is really, really keen. Well, according to Jackman anyway. Appearing on Sunday Today to discuss the possibility of Wolverine’s return, The Greatest Showman actor was adamant the character would be back at some point in the future.
When host Willie Geist asked if he would be behind the wheel though, the 50-year-old responded by throwing cold water over any hopes of a Deadpool/Wolverine collaboration.
No, but Ryan [Reynolds] is relentless. He keeps coming back to me in all these ways, shapes and forms.
I just said, ‘You know, I just don’t think the world really wants to see Deadpool with Wolverine.’ Maybe a cameo from Deadpool? I just think it runs over it for Deadpool.
Neither Jackman or Reynolds has responded to the Deadpool tweet but I personally can’t wait to see what they’ve got up their sleeves. It isn’t a proper Friday without some top tier bantering from our favourite celebs, is it?
That’s what all the cool people do on a Friday night, right? Just scroll through Twitter hoping for some interaction from Hollywood actors who we’ll likely never meet?
Just kidding, that’s definitely not what I’ll be doing…
