Deadpool and Wolverine star Ryan Reynolds recently revealed the movie that he believes is the "greatest comic book adaptation ever made."

The beloved A-lister is set to reprise his iconic role in the upcoming MCU film. It will mark his third solo project as the Merc with a Mouth and, this time around, he is teaming up with Hugh Jackman's Wolverine.

For years, fans have been clamoring for the titular heroes to finally star together in the same movie. The announcement of Jackman's involvement caused a lot of excitement and, now, we're just weeks away from seeing their team-up on the big screen.

In a recent interview, Reynolds revealed that he considered the 2017 film Logan to be the "greatest comic-book adaptation ever made."

He explained that his Deadpool movies and the Jackman-led film showed the possibilities of doing a unique and mature take on a comic book movie.

"The movies were quite congruent with each other at that point. Deadpool was different, and then right after Logan was potentially the greatest comic-book adaptation ever made," he said.

For years, Logan has been consistently in conversation as one of the best comic book movies of all time so it's not surprising to hear Reynolds call it as well and a lot of fans likely agree with his sentiment.

The film's neo-western tone showed a different side of Wolverine that we haven't seen before in both the portrayal of the iconic mutant and the comic book genre in general.

It is also worth noting that Wolverine's death in Logan was referenced in Deadpool 2 which just shows how much Reynolds had huge respect for the film even if he was poking fun at it.

With Deadpool and Wolverine's upcoming release, Logan is back in the conversation since its events will likely have an impact on Jackman's return as Wolverine although it remains to be seen how connected the two films might be.

Deadpool and Wolverine is set to arrive in theaters this July 26.
