Ryan Reynolds Says ‘Deadpool’ Is ‘Happening the Right Way’


Deadpool is back, and Ryan Reynolds is ready to roll. Although he’s compared the long-developing Fox project to “the worst relationship” he’s ever had, the actor seems excited to finally return to Wade Wilson.

“The budget isn’t what we hoped it would be,” the actor joked to MTV, adding that the red-and-black flannel he was wearing would be the new suit.

“It’s been a long time, and it’s happening the right way, and that’s all that matters,” he said. “We don’t have the kind of money that most superhero movies do, but that’s great. Necessity is the mother of invention. That’s why we get to make the movie we want to make.”

Reynolds, who played the character previously in the much-maligned 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, wants to move forward with this new version helmed by first-time feature director Tim Miller, based on a script by G.I. Joe: Retaliation writers written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

“You’ve got to have faith in the people you’re working with and the prep,” he said. “On this one, the prep’s been 11 years so you’d like to think you’ll put your best foot forward, but we’ll see.”

When asked whether he had anything to do with the Deadpool test footage leaked in July, Reynolds replied, “No, no, no, I didn’t leak it, but I would’ve.” Response to that footage supposedly spurred Fox to move forward with the long-stalled project.

Deadpool is now scheduled to debut on Feb. 12, 2016.

    I don’t think they need a relatively big budget for a Deadpool flick. Their template for making a good move should be Blade, not Avengers. If DP is kicking ass and making with the funny in a good film, huge amount of special effects are not needed.

    “Get to make the movie we want to make” gives me hope its R rated. I know PG can be done well as well, but it would undoubtedly be a lot better if its R.

    “Done the right way.” Do they mean with someone else starring?

    I just want severed heads, an ugly face under the mask, a little bit of 4th wall breaking and a plot that isn’t paper thin. Plus jokes, silly, silly jokes.

    wow 11 years? seriously?

    Would have hoped the response to the leaked test footage would have also spurred FOX to put some more money into it there investment as well.

    Just as long as it’s not happening the Daniel Way.

    I think low-budget may lead them to the right mindset for a Deadpool movie–the Deapool comics never feel like part of the larger universe, they are off-beat and ridiculous, and they have some freedom to do whatever.

    Lmao, you seriously think someone else can do Deadpool? Get real.

    This may sound stupid, but it the test footage CGI, it looks a lot like a videogame to me. If that’s what we can expect from the actual DP movie, count me onboard!

    only a year away weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I hope there will be sequels. It would be cool to lead up to Deadpool kills the Marvel Universe, but it wouldn’t have to end the Avengers movies or X-Men films, but to have all those characters in a movie with Deadpool and have him kill them in different ways, would be cool

    terrible actor …kryptonite for comic book movies…just go away… really..

  • Oblivus

    This has to be a R rated movie to be good…. No PG or PG-13 BS
