Hugh Jackman is ecstatic with the response he received from his fans while promoting his latest film Logan in China, but his friend and fellow actor Ryan Reynolds jokes it was barely a bunch of protesters.
The 48-year-old actor, who is playing the adamantium-clawed mutant in the Marvel film for the last time, took to Twitter to thank his admirers.
"Thanks for an amazing visit Beijing! @WolverineMovie @20thcenturyfox," Jackman wrote, alongside a photograph of himself with his fans at the film's premiere there.
To this the Deadpool star gave a reply laced in his classic dead-pan humour, "Pretty sure those are protesters."
And this earned a faux shocked response from Jackman as he retweeted with, "Really.. Guy.. Really? @VancityReynolds."
The first trailer of Reynolds' upcoming film Deadpool 2 was unveiled ahead of the world premiere of Logan.
