Aussie superstar Hugh Jackman and his X-Men castmates have reunited to not only mark the 20th anniversary of the first film in the franchise, but also to take part in Global Citizen’s “Unite for Our Future”concert.

The special event which was hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and featured performances from Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Shakira and Miley Cyrus, highlights the impact of COVID-19 on marginalised and vulnerable communities.

Jackman, who’s a Global Citizen Ambassador, began the zoom call with Halle Berry, Sir Patrick Stewart and Famke Janssen before his good buddy Ryan Reynolds decided to crash the show.

Reynolds who appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, then invited fellow actors Sophie Turner and James McAvoy to the chat before Liev Schriber joined the call.

Yep, it was hilarious.

But it was also an opportunity for them to pay tribute to “all the true superheroes fighting for a safer, healthier, more equitable world,” while Jackman personally thanked people on the frontlines of the pandemic as well as those fighting for racial justice.

The Global Citizen special event mobilised over $6.9 billion in pledges for COVID-19 relief from governments, philanthropists and big corporates including Google, Proctor & Gamble and Johnson & Johnson.
