Proceeds go to vulnerable children, frontline workers and the elderly, and everyone who donates will be entered into a draw to have the two A-list actors visit their home and help the winner’s children run a lemonade stand.

“People think it [the feud] started with us – well it didn’t,” Jackman deadpanned during a video announcing the prize.

Hugh and I have a temporary cease-fire on our feud for the @allinchallenge. So, I nominate, legendary Astronaut, @Cmdr_Hadfield, Soccer Superstar, @AshleyLawrence – and just to screw with him… @RealHughJackman. (WHAAT? A challenge inside a challenge.) https://t.co/9RKgI0G1X5 pic.twitter.com/pyFG5Agstr

Showing a black-and-white photo featuring both Deadpool (Reynolds) and Wolverine (Jackman), the stars went on to add that starting their respective drinks companies – Jackman’s coffee company and Reynolds’ gin – has only added fuel to the fire.
“But for one day, and one day only, we have agreed to agree to not disagree and only a pandemic could make that happen,” Reynolds said.
Jackman added: “We’ve agreed to join the All In Challenge. We’ll stop our feud for one day and help sell a different type of drink.”
The lightening-fast opening credits for the segment also packed in a few jokes, including a shoutout to the actors’ wives for “tolerating[ing]” their feud, and a tongue-in-cheek nod to Marvel (which owns both Deadpool and the X-Men franchise).
