This feud is going strong! Hugh Jackman and the cast of the X-Men trilogy recently had a Zoom virtual reunion that got hilariously crashed by Ryan Reynolds. The two actors have a decade-long faux rivalry and it seems like the fire is still burning.

In a YouTube video for Global Citizen, Jackman hopped on a call with his former castmates Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, and Famke Janssen.

They joined together to "celebrate the heroic acts of healthcare and other essential workers and everyday superheroes," per Global Citizen. 

"Honestly, it's kind of surreal you guys. Can you believe it's been 20 years since the first X-Men movie?" Jackman says.

Out of nowhere pops up Reynolds who chimes in, "Knock knock! Whoa, so many stars!"

Jackman explains to the Canadian that the four castmates were just reminiscing about their time in the three movies together. The trilogy began in 2000 and was followed with sequels in 2003 and 2006.

"I hope it's okay if I join...I figured we were all in X-Men together," Reynolds responds.

Berry corrects him and says that he was in X-Men Origins.

Reynolds continues his antics by announcing that he invited Sophie Turner and James McAvoy, who played younger versions of Jean Grey and Professor X in prequel films.

After some awkwardness, each star announced that they had to leave the chat for another reunion – Game of Thrones for Turner, Split for McAvoy, James Bond for Janssen and Berry, and Star Trek for Stewart.

"That fell apart quickly. Guess it's just you and me, Logan," Reynolds says to a disappointed looking Jackman. "You know what that makes this a reunion for?"

Liev Schreiber pops in to say, "X-Men Origins reunite!" He played Sabretooth in the 2009 film opposite Jackman as Logan/Wolverine and Reynolds as Wade Wilson.

Jackman recently admitted that the actors' flame war began when the 43-year-old was married to Scarlett Johansson from 2008 to 2010 and he would tease Reynolds to be on his best behaviour.

Their innocent fun mostly takes place online where they poke fun at each other in various comical ways.

However, back in April, the X-Men Origins stars claimed they would set aside their faux feud for one day to join the All In Challenge together.

Shortly after, Jackman announced that he was prepared for a "permanent truce," but it looks like that might not be the case anymore now that Reynolds crashed his Zoom reunion.
