Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds have agreed to a truce in their iconic “Wolverine/Deadpool” feud to work together for sports entrepreneur Michael Rubin’s “All In” challenge.
Jackman tweeted out a video featuring Reynolds and himself declaring a truce between the two Marvel stars in the name of helping hungry kids around the world through the “All In” challenge. Reynolds cheekily equates their little rivalry to the historic Hatchfield/McCoy feud of American history, Jackman tries to appear as professional as possible but can be seen losing some patience as the two of them attempt to speak over each other. Apparently, the two Marvel anti-hero stars are having some difficulty cooperating during this supposed truce.
So, I’ve agreed to trust that Ryan can hold his tongue for one day. A (very) temporary cease-fire for the @allinchallenge. I nominate @drewbrees and @Mariska & @PeterHermann. And to be assured we’re even, I also nominate @VancityReynolds. https://t.co/B4dU8MVDtb pic.twitter.com/JK5sJ0BkKm

Many celebrities have joined this challenge with rewards of their own, Jackman and Reynolds have offered to come to one lucky bidder’s house to set up a lemonade stand for two hours raising money for first responders. All one has to do with a chance to meet these two actors is donate to their specific “All In” contest.
The “All In challenge is set up for particular celebrities to draft each other into the contest and set up their own challenge with its own reward(s), so donors get multiple opportunities to win prizes while donating to multiple different causes Michael Rubin, co-owner of the NBA’s 76er’s and founder of the sports retail site Fanatics, started the “All In” challenge because of the food shortages so many Americans are facing including poverty-stricken children who experience hunger regularly.
