Ryan Reynolds talks Deadpool Spin-Off Movie

139 Comments

“X-Men Origins: Deadpool”? Or maybe just “Deadpool: The Movie”? Either way, comic book geeks everywhere are waiting for Ryan Reynolds to get his own comic book movie. If not The Flash (which is looking very unlikely at this point), then the next best thing is the merc with the mouth, Deadpool, a character Reynolds will be playing in the upcoming “Wolverine” movie. So what about that spin-off movie, Ryan?

The boys at Latino Review got to talk with Ryan Reynolds about a possible “Deadpool” movie during the junket for “Adventureland”, in which Reynolds co-stars, and disappointingly, doesn’t get to slice anyone’s head off with a sword in:

Ya, I love the character. I’ve always loved the character. I remember reading one of the Deadpool comic books, and somebody asked Deadpool what he looks like. And he said he looks like a cross between a Shar-Pei and Ryan Reynolds. And I was like, I really, really wanna play this guy at some point. I thought it was pretty cool. It’s a guy that knows he’s in a comic book. How hard is it to shoot that properly? That’s not something they put in Wolverine nor would it belong in that universe.

There are also more stuff from the “Wolverine” movie, most of which we’ve already spoiled for you here regarding what happens to Reynolds’ Deadpool character.

Which leads me to this: if they do end up with a spin-off movie for Reynolds as Deadpool, it will probably have to be a prequel, unless they want to completely erase what happens at the end of “Wolverine”. That is, if the spoilers we got were true and not made up. Then again, they could just go the “Elektra” route, and sort of just ignore the “Wolverine” movie…

Below: Seriously, there should be a law against looking this perfect.

    Actually it doesnt have to be a prequel because there is a precedent for deadpools regeneration being stronger that either sabretooth or wolverine. and simply reattaching his head would be enough to cause regeneration. he can regenerate whole limbs as well.

      The Deadpool movie doesn’t have to take place chronologically after the Wolverine movie at all. There is a 6 year period during the Wolverine movie during which we don’t know exactly what is going on with Wade Wilson. They could use this period of time to construct a good story around him as Deadpool before they tear the character to shreds by turning him into that Weapon XI thing.

        why doesn’t anyone realize the obvious route the movie will take?

        !. Head Reattaches and for reasons the writers come up with hes lost all his powers except regeneration (hopefully he’s lost the wolverine style blades too.

        2. Now hes gone completely insane because of everything that has happened to him

        3. voila, we have the Deadpool we know and love, scarred and crazy as fuck

          problem, his mouth is sewn shut, not really going to make for a great “merc with a mouth”

      Well actually, if u stay til the very end of the creditr, you will understand just why there will be a deadpool spin off movie. I dont want to spoil it for any one, but at the end credits he wakes up and his mouth is open.

      ok so if they take teh Deadpool movie in teh, after weapon x, direction then its simple. Deadpool was sed to be unfinished, sooo maybe when he “dies” he reatatches his hed with his uber regeneration (since its betr then wolerines) and in the process he loses his ghey cyclops eyes. As 4 his katanas, they could snap off or he could take em out (which would b gnarly) whichevr, and the stictches in his mouth simply bust from the impact of his fall OR he cuts em out. BAM! now u got the good ole Deadpool! Or u could just do a precual type thing.

    The problem with regenerating and then continuing his storyline is (Spoiler Alert) the fact that now he’s got all these super powers that deadpool never had. How would you get rid of the “laser vision”. Also as a side note sewing deadpool’s mouth shut should be a punishable offense, even if it is fiction.

      hey they started the weapon XI before the “bonding process was finished” this leaves writers with a huge opening to explain that the other ridiculous powers have worn off because the process was not finished trust me he will be fine

      Perhaps after regenerating he gets dumped in the Hospice, where they remove replace the laser eyes with regular ones, remove the knives, and the teleporting, I guess can sort of be forgotten since he gets a faulty teleporter later (They could just say he was teleporting under the illusion of the teleporter working.)

        It’s going to be a re-boot…so there’s no need to explain all that stuff in the movie

          Let it go. Fanboy speculation must abound for them to have peace. I do it too, just keep it to myself mostly. LOL.

    Wait wait… J Prince when he *SPOILER ALERT* get sliced there is a spark or something at the base of his skull where most mutant powers are kept. He might regen and not have them anymore

    If Wade’s healing factor kicked in it could, theoretically, reject the laser vision since its not a natural part of wade. The healing factor isn’t natural either, but Deadpool’s healing factor is mentally driven for the most part and more aggressive than that of Logan’s or Creed’s. As for the two Katana in his arms, why not just say he decided to rip them out. His mouth can be cut back open too :)

    This situation will make old fan’s of Deadpool happy after Weapon XI being called Deadpool, and fits with what all you guys said.

    Well also, a lot of experimenting was done on Wilson when he was in Department K, then flushed down the toilet. Killebrew did all kinds of fucked up shit. It’s not a huge stretch to say that they somehow stripped all his powers except for his healing factor, which would allow him to survive the entire ordeal. Workin that adamantium off the bones wouldn’t be easy to explain, though. Well, I remain skeptical, and don’t expect a Deadpool movie, but I still hope for one.
