As part of the “12 Days of Deadpool” marketing hype machine, The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman has released a new rendering of his X-Men character with Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool.
The image, released with a link to the “Trailer’s Eve” TV spot, has Deadpool in a Santa hat, apparently pole-dancing on Wolverine’s middle claw.

Fans have been hoping for a Wolverine cameo in Deadpool. Could this be a clue?
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
