At the end of the movie, when Wade is showing his new face to Vanessa, Deadpool is wearing a second mask:

    Why the downvote? Care to explain?

    This is a reasonable question - the scene goes by quite quickly; I've had to explain it to friends. Jul 25, 2018 at 12:16

    “There is no way you don’t know Hugh Jackman” Could be the reason of the down vote.

    @majidarif I suppose that could be why someone downvoted. But I honestly wasn't really sure who it was either. It's hard to make out the features on the mask. Especially with all the wrinkles (on the mask, not Hugh Jackman). Jul 25, 2018 at 17:23

    In the movie itself, I found recognition of Hugh Jackman easy. The picture above isn't as recognizable to me. Jul 25, 2018 at 17:47

Its Hugh Jackman, the actor who plays Wolverine in the "mainstream" x-men movie series.

Its one of many fourth-wall-breaking Hugh Jackman / Wolverine jokes in the movie.

    in addition to that, during the intro, you see a magazine cover with Ryan Reynolds as the "sexiest man of the year" (I don't know which year), he chose Hugh Jackman because of the latter also being voted "sexiest man of the year" beforehand

    Deadpool has always been making fun of Wolverine on account of them both having regeneration/healing factor - /s I mean they're basically the same person! /s Jul 25, 2018 at 14:59

    I think it more accurate to say that Deadpool is completely obsessed with Wolverine (in both a love and a hate way). And Spiderman, but that's a different topic completely.

    Is it Hugh Jackman (and thus a fourth wall break)? Or is isn’t it rather Wolverine (and thus more logical, given his Wolverine obsession, and entirely in Universe)? It vaguely looks as if Wolverine’s signature sideburns might be missing in the picture but I can’t see it clearly. Jul 25, 2018 at 18:36

    @KonradRudolph .. I think its Jackman and not Wolverine - due to the hair being less "full" than Wolverine's and the beard is evenly short whereas Wolverine often has it fuller at the sides trims it very short on the chin and moustache. I believe its taken from this magazine cover ... goo.gl/images/eUdAFi
