HOLLYWOOD superstar Hugh Jackman revealed he wants to join Norwich in a blockbuster shock transfer move.

And the X-Men and Wolverine actor also had numerous opportunities to invest just £1 into football clubs to become their co-owner.

Jackman has seen fellow celebrity performer and ongoing comedic rival Ryan Reynolds enjoy success since buying Wrexham with Rob McElhenney in 2021.

But Australian Jackman, 54, wants to go one better than his Deadpool 3 co-star by playing on the Carrow Road pitch for his beloved Norwich.

And The Prestige man would love to conjure up another piece of magic to down pal Reynolds.

Jackman told the BBC: “I will admit to you that when Ryan bought that team, I did get more than one offer from rivals of that team for £1 to come in as a co-owner and it did seriously tempt me.

“This whole thing of outsiders coming in and buying football teams, it feels a little, I don’t know, easy.

“I have decided to go one step further.

“I am actually going to try out for the team.

“So Delia Smith, Stephen Fry, I’m coming to try out.

“I think if I really want to stick it to Ryan Reynolds, then if Wrexham get to play Norwich, because obviously there’s a level here, I think it would be best if I was heading in the winner.”

Asked about the Canaries nickname, he joked: “It doesn’t sound intimidating, but everybody knows it’s everybody’s second-favourite team.”

Wrexham have been on a remarkable journey under their A-list owners and have dreams of bringing Football League action back to the Racecourse Ground next season.

Fans were joined for a pre-match pint by Will Ferrell last week while Saturday saw a dramatic 96th-minute to beat Aldershot to continue their promotion charge.
