    So, in a sketch for Global Citizen, there was an X-Men reunion that ended up having a few more guests than planned.

    First, the video starts off with a reminder that it has somehow been 20 YEARS since the X-Men movie franchise kicked off.

    Tag yourselves, original X-Men Zoom edition. Personally, I’m an Ian McKellen. Like, is there someone behind the photo and the muted microphone? Who knows.

    Then, Ryan Reynolds — a man who has hijacked my own Zoom calls zero times — pops up.

    If you're like, "Hey, I don't remember Deadpool appearing in an X-Men movie," then I have four cursed words for you: X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

    Ah, the blissful joy of entering a Zoom call wherein everyone is thrilled to see you.

    "So many stars" indeed. Such an insight into the lives of the rich and famous: Halle Berry has some rad plants, and James McAvoy appears to live in what we can only assume is an entire house made of wood paneling...

    We even get a fleeting glimpse of Sophie Turner.

    Can I use this line to escape future Zoom calls? Asking for a friend.

    And an accurate portrayal of me in 2019 versus me in 2020.

    Then, the reunion all of us have been waiting 11 years for: X-Men Origins: Wolverine, of course.

    Their faces depict the cycle of making the movie.

    Welp, at least it wasn't this version of Deadpool on the call.
