Deadpool is ‘Like the Worst Relationship I’ve Ever Had,’ Says Ryan Reynolds


Whatever happened to the Merc with the Mouth? That’s a question that not even Ryan Reynolds can really answer.

“That movie is alive and kicking, and then it’s dead as a doornail,” Reynolds told Total Film in a recent interview, speaking about the status of his long-planned Deadpool movie. “Then it’s alive and kicking and then it’s dead … it’s like the worst relationship I’ve ever had!”

Fox’s known superhero movie plans consist of this summer’s The Wolverine, 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past and 2015’s Fantastic Four reboot. Altthough Deadpool was announced shortly after the release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009, no release date has been set. Still, Reynolds sounds optimistic about the content of the current script, even if it’s not pushing forward at top speed.

“The character knows he’s a comic-book character, he knows he’s in a film, he knows who the executives are at the studio making the movie,” he said. “In the current iteration of the script, Deadpool is aware of the Wolverine movie. He doesn’t say anything disparaging about it but he does at one point play with the Deadpool action figure with some curiosity.”

    I really wonder if they intend to keep Deadpool in his mask for 99% of the movie since he almost never takes it off, and when he does, he’s all gross looking. I can imagine either Reynolds or the studio trying to find a way around that idea.

    If they stick closer to the comics than the last time and disfigure him, they’ll probably let Reynolds show off his good looks before the Weapon X treatment. If they do that, it won’t be a problem to keep his face hidden once they show how ugly he is after that.

    I just want to see a funny damn Dead Pool movie damn it.

  • Michelle Mista

    To waste Ryan Reynold’s comedic talent would be such a damned shame, especially with a character as nucking futs as Deadpool. So hoping this damned project would go through and do it well.

  • William Richardson

    I believe Ryan said in the past he was pushing for being in full costume 99% of the time since he was a huge fan of the character.

    So, no news? Le sigh.

    if marvel studios owns the right to deadpool they could have probably made a deadpool live action movie a long time ago.

    Well there is a deadpool game now that fully captures deadpool’s insane comedic nature but the story is ehh so hopes this comes out.
