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.

    No agent x, thanks. He’s cool and all but not quite movie worthy.

    Saw the movie today. You’ll notice that when Weapon XI is created one of the scientists warns striker that the process isn’t complete. Perhaps the powers don’t stay? As for the blades in his arms…that’s a different story. Maybe he gets them removed?

    They really screwed Deadpool up in this. Now, if what someone said above is true and he could regenerate his body from his head, then yes, the retarded swords that came out of his arms would be gone. Maybe he took them out of his arms, and made new swords from them?

    But here is something that you have forgotten, while Wilson’s healing factor might be stronger than Wolverines, or Sabertooth, Deadpool has a nasty bout of cancer. His healing factor is CONSTANTLY working to patch up his skin. This makes him slightly weaker, because not only does he have to regenerate what injuries he takes in battle, but the cancer as well. Neither of the other two have to constantly use that ability as he does.

    All in all, I though they did him decently in the first half of the flick. As long as they get him as close to the comic as possible for another movie, Ill be all for it.

      I think i read somewhere in one the last Thunderbolts issues that deadpool’s cancer the only thing is that keeps his healing factor in check …they (Osborn I think) wanted to shoot him with an anti-cancer bullet which would result in his healing factor working so fast it would make him dissolve or something…

      Damn, those Marvel-authors have some weird ideas ^^

      posted this earlier thought it would fit here nicely. Bottom line though is that yes they did some questionable things but this is the world of Comics baby. You can fix anything with only the thinnest veneer of plausability :)

I didn’t read any of these postings about the trailer or spoilers or anything until today. But like I said it caught me off guard and I’ve had time to think it through to the point where I believe they can redeem the character of Deadpool/Wade Wilson. Slight spoiler here, at the end several things combine to make me hopeful. There is a line saying the bonding process on Weapon XI isn’t complete so hopefully he’ll lose the blades and presumably the adamantium lacing? Also, he has a shall we say severe injury at the end that HOPEFULLY will get rid of the stupidest addition to his powers they ever could have done, you know optic blasts? Shees! The teleporting can stay as Deadpool uses devices if I’m not mistaken for the same effect quite often yes? I mean hell Spidey doesn’t even have webshooters in the movies And finally, the no mouth thing lol I sorta laughed at that and if ya stay through the credits you’re rewarded a bit to resolve that issue. So, I am now theraputiclly vented and you may all have fun with this yourselves. THX, and remember it’s always Five O’clock somwhere, so DRINK UP!!!
