Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds are spending some quality time with each other.

The actors and close friends were spotted on a walk together in New York City on Monday. The pair's outing comes a few days after the X-Men star and wife Deborra-lee Jackman announced their amicable split following 27 years of marriage.

Jackman, 54, and Reynolds, 46, are soon set to reprise their Marvel characters Wolverine and Deadpool, respectively, in the upcoming Deadpool 3 movie, which was in the midst of filming before Hollywood actors went on strike in July.

Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy recently opened about the actors’ bromance in an interview with Los Angeles Times at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month.

"It’s f---ing real," Levy, 55, said of the duo's close-knit dynamic. “The guys love each other almost as much as Ryan Reynolds and I love each other. Because that bromance is a tale for all time.”

Hugh and Deborra-lee, who share son Oscar, 23, and daughter Ava, 18, broke the news of their separation in a statement exclusively shared with PEOPLE on Friday.

A day after announcing the news, Hugh was spotted on a walk in New York City without his wedding ring on.

Although it was a mutual decision for the Aussie pair to separate, a source close to Hugh and Deborra-lee recently told PEOPLE that they are "devastated" and that the split is "very hard" for them.

"It was not a snap decision — they took a lot of time and consideration of everything, and they made this decision together," the insider said. "They are going on separate journeys, but they will always be a family. They’ll always be co-parents and best friends."
