Ryan Reynolds Wants a Deadpool Movie

After realizing that The Flash movie will probably never happen (stupid Hollywood), Ryan Reynolds seems ready to move on to another superhero character — or, actually, anti-hero character — the mutant mercenary known as Deadpool. For non-comic book readers, Deadpool is this louthmouth (or motormouth) villain who was a royal pain in the X-Men’s behind (he was introduced in either the New Mutants or X-Force, I forgot which), and was created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza. Liefeld gave Deadpool his look (basically, Liefeld draws all his characters the same, just with different color tights), but it was Nicieza who really gave the guy personality, but then again, Nicieza was always good at giving characters smart-alecky personalities.

Says Reynolds about the character:

“He’s a derivative of the Weapons X program… They turned him into a puddle and shipped him off. Just left him for dead. But he came back with all these mutant powers. And he’s pissed off “” in a full-fledged, I’m gonna get you way.

It’s a very tricky character to do… It’s hard R. It’s ambiguous whether he’s good or bad. He’s a mercenary. This is all to say nothing of the fact that his face is made entirely of scar tissue.

These are huge issues… Hopefully, there’ll be [somebody] who has the balls to go there and make a really authentic, decent “˜Deadpool’ movie.”

You can find out more about the character on Wikipedia.

I like Reynolds. He’s actually just as wise-alecky as the Deadpool character, and God knows the dude has the physique to do the character justice. But like the Flash movie, I don’t see this one happening. Why? Um, I don’t know, a guy in red ninja tights running around gutting people just doesn’t seem very appealing as a movie to me.

Then again, who knows?

    if the people at fox have half a brain they would simply take a story arc from one of his many zany strange story arcs, that go no where and have nothing to do with the marvel universe, well until recently. any way im getting off track ryan reynalds rocks, i have mad support for him playing the character and i hope they find a hardcore fan director out of film school. oh and for the love of all that is pop art please make the movie R

    origins was fine as a pg13 movie however since deadpools fan base is smaller and generally appeals to more of an adult audience i think they will turn way more money if they make it R plus i will personally see it 5 times to basically make it seem like a family of 5 saw the movie, and i will buy all the action figures happy meals cigarette packs and cereal boxes with deadpool on or near the package.

    well i thind he deserves a movie cause their are a lot of fans of dead pool, and beside, the last film he played on as dead pool (wolverine origans) he died. the fans want to see if he comes back (since now he can heal like woverine) and see who his new enemes are. it should be a injoyable action packed movie because dead pool is a bit of a smart a$$, and on the plus side , rayan raynolds likes to play with his charecter. it should be a 4 stare if not 5 stare movie.

    I’m exited about the Deadpool movie Ryan Reynolds is the perfect Actor as The Merc of Mouth and I’m sure the movie would come out Awesome. My only worry is if they don’t make the movie and if they don’t atleast make a series of Deadpool on DVD because he was awesome in Hulk vs Wolverine cartoon, for those of you who haven’t seen it buy it. Anyway I’m all for my favorate Super-Hero Movie DEADPOOL
