Ryan Reynolds Continues to Make me Giddy about a Deadpool Movie

The more Ryan Reynolds talks about his upcoming Deadpool movie, which is currently being fast-tracked into production and should soon nab a script to lure in a director, the more I’m getting all giddy over the possibility of watching the mouthy mercenary run around onscreen slicing people up and then cracking jokes over their sliced up body parts. Of course, there is some danger of being too loyal to the comic book material (just ask Zack Snyder), but luckily for Reynolds, who will be pretty much glued to the character throughout his development, there’s only one character that needs to stay faithful, and that’s Deadpool himself.

Reynolds tells MTV:

“I get to be the authentication police, in a weird way. To their credit — the studio’s credit — they want to make an authentic ‘Deadpool’ movie; they want to make it as close to the source material as possible.”

“He’s going to be the Merc with the Mouth, [we’re going to give] all those answers that everyone wants. He’s going to have the scarred-up face, he’s going to be in the suit — and, it’s going to be incredible.”

Indeedy.

Below: People always told him that mouth of his would get him in trouble…

    Ah Ryan, Ryan, Ryan, thank you so much for renewing and building my faith in a movie and character that I have loved and wanted to see on screen since he got his frist mini-series. I’m a huge fan of the character and to hear that Reynolds (who is as we ALL know a HUGE fan of the character) will be making sure he makes it to the big screen in all his insane glory just makes me ridiculously happy.

    Dear Filmmakers: Wolverine fouled up the origin of Deadpool, as a result I didn’t pay a single dime to see such atrocity done to my favorite character. You’ve committed the literary equivalent of defamation of character by warping his origin and even worse his representation in your film. As a result, I WILL NOT pay to see another substandard film by 20th Century FOX (star wars, X-Men series, etc.) This is what happens when you flagrantly offend the fanbase with your careless representation of our characters in the interest of your own profit. What’s worse for your situation? I’m not alone in this endeavor.

    yeh i agree with Arggie, Fox shouldnt have destroyed such an amazing character the way they did. it was cool that they included him in the beggining cause he is a merc but then they change him into somthing lame. it would have been cooler if they just juiced him with healing abilities like he has then paid him to stall wolverine so that they could move the weapon x program to a different location. anything would have been better than screwing up his origins like they did.

      I as die-hard deadpool fan as any, and I do believe that Baraka-pool was a travesty to all man-kind, and a slap in the face to anyone who ever picked up a Deadpool comic. However, the film was NOT about Deadpool, it was about Wolverine. Say what you want about either character, but the movie was not titled “X-Men Origins: Deadpool” … This is what Reynolds intends to fix. It was a rush job to get him involved in Origins and he was not able to play the full part, which is why the sewed up his mouth. Whomever decided he needed baraka knifes should get slapped in the face with a lawsuit from Midway, but other than that I have to applaud Fox for atleast thinking of Deadpool. Let’s face it Deadpool fanatics… we’re not as many in number as Wolverine fans. This brought him into the limelight, and now… with any luck at all… Reynolds (a die-hard fan himself) will pull out of the GOD AWFUL Origin story. (So to speak)

        Hey there may not be as many of us be we ARE LEGION, and we ARE GROWING!!!! The proof is in the pudding. Two ongoing series, a mini, and two major crossovers, a guest spot in an animated feature, retruning spot inUltimate Alliance 2, and finally a cameo by Wade in Wolverine (I refuse to acknowledge him as Deadpool at the end, Weapon XI is what I will call him when not calling him Barakapool). SO I’m hoping Reynolds does police this and make sure we get something closer to the animated and comics Deadpool.

          ya and about MAU2 deadpool is even on the cover.

          anyway deadpool is my fav character as well… suprisingly the first time i saw him in anything it was the first MAU… hoping its gonna be really great

          and on the other hand, i heard somewhere that reynolds was cast as the green lantern…. O.o

            Nice. They should model the movie costume after the MAU costume. It’s pretty damned realistic looking.
