As Jackman, Halle Berry, Famke Janssen and Patrick Stewart began to reminisce and comment on how each appeared to be doing, the group were surprised by the appearance of an unexpected guest. It was none other than Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds.

For unversed, Ryan Reynolds appeared in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine and not he original X-Men movie in 2000. "It's kind of surreal you guys, I can't believe it's been 20 years since the first aX-Men' movie", Hugh Jackman was saying, according to a report in people.com, and suddenly Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds popped on the screen. In fact, he'd even invited a few more fellow celebs along from other X-Men films. As the video continues, Ryan Reynolds actually does end up joining the call, but the stars aren't too keen on sticking around once he enters.

"Oh sorry, I actually thought this was the Game of Thrones reunion", says Turner, before each of the stars make their excuses and clicks the "leave meeting" button.

Reddit bans pro-Trump forum r/The_Donald in content crackdown
Reddit said it was "initially banning about 2,000 subreddits", though just 200 of them had more than 10 daily active users. Reddit also banned r/chapotraphouse , a community based around a political podcast of the same name.

Soon, almost everyone had left to attend other reunions (for Star Trek and James Bond, for instance) except Reynolds and Jackman. "Guess it's just me and you, Logan".

The X-Men reunion was for Global Citizen's Global Goal: Unite for Our Future event.

Ryan Reynolds once again pranks Hugh Jackman.

"Sometime in the not too distant future the hard work of every global citizen will bring about a healthier, safer, more equitable world", he said.
