Krasinski and Reynolds, in banter, had ganged up on Jackman on social media over the weekend after a photograph of the "Logan" star cozying up to Krasinski's actress-wife Emily Blunt at Variety's "Actors on Actors" event, reports

"You gotta stay on your toes, John. That's all I'm saying," Jackman joked.

He went on to add that he would have no problem taking on Krasinski in a physical altercation if it came to that.

"I'm fine to fight John, but he arrived this morning at my front door with Ryan. I'm like, ‘Come on, guys. One at a time. Not together.'"

Jackman said that he might have acquired a taste for rabble-rousing.

"I'm really creating all these feuds. This mister nice guy image is over."

The initial spat occurred when the "Front Runner" star tweeted a photograph of himself with Blunt praising their conversation together for "Actors on Actors."

Krasinski responded with another pic of the pair, in which Jackman was likely talking in Blunt's ear, writing: "Eeeeeeasy Hugh…not sure this is what Variety meant with Actors on Actors. Don't make me think I can hurt you."

Reynolds then piled on, tweeting: "This is a call to action. This man must be stopped."

Jackman and Reynolds, at least, have a history of ribbing each other online.

The pair, who both play characters in the Marvel/X-Men universe as Wolverine and Deadpool, have repeatedly engaged in good-natured smearing in an imitation of their on-screen personas.
