Ryan Reynolds talks Deadpool Spin-Off Movie

“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.

Cool Stories From Zergnet

    His body grows back from his head leaving the blades and adamantium with the other body. Seeing as how his healing factor is mental based the thirst for vengeance (much like in the comic) would allow him to reassemble his body (just like he regrew his heart) and cut a hole where his mouth was so he is able to talk. If you look back at comics other characters have talked about Deadpools voice and perhaps him having his mouth sewn shut would cause this? Cable has described his voice as having a “gravelly, Demi Moore” quality. Blind Al has also stated that Deadpool’s voice sounds like a distinct mixture of “gasoline and gravel.” And perhaps with the healing factor would rid him of the optic blasts. But whatever happens I seriously hope they bring in a Deadpool movie, maybe even `Cable and Deadpool`

    I like the idea of him regrowing from his head. This would take care of the adamantium from the neck down and the growing of a new body could be used as a reason for why he lost most of the powers he attained. I really hope they come out with a Deadpool movie with Ryan Reynolds playing him.

    Wolvie was awesome. I want a Deadpool movie, with Ryan Reynolds.

      Well, Ryan Reynolds did a fairly good job of portraying the character, but I have to think you’re infected with some sort of mental deficiency if you think that Wolverine was a good movie. They butchered the back story, destroyed Deadpool’s character in the later half, and all around screwed up what was the perfect premise for a movie.

    People are saying that maybe his head grows back, or that his head grows a new body, but i just thought that it would be cool if both happened. then there would be two. haha. maybe one could be good and the other evil and they would fight each other. anyhoo, its just a thought.
