One new character you might have noticed in the recent X-Men Origins: Wolverine trailers is the sword-spinning dude played by Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool. While the character was disfigured in the original comicbooks, it looks like Fox wasn't willing to put marks on Reynolds' pretty face. While that might get a small bit of backlash, Reynolds still feels that we will care about this anti-hero.
Reynolds on Deadpool
LatinoReview caught up with Reynolds at the Adventureland junket and got him to discuss certain aspects of his role in Wolverine.
Reynolds: Ya, he walks the line. Ya, I think you will actually care about him. You'll be curious about him. You'll be curious beyond the film, you'll be curious about him. I play Wade Wilson and I play Deadpool, and the character I play as Deadpool, I personally, Fox may differ from me, but I personally don't consider him as Deadpool, I consider him to be what Deadpool becomes. Or the thing Deadpool came from. It doesn't carry on past that.
There's talk, because Deadpool is so popular, that Fox might want to do a spin-off. Would you be interested in that?
Reynolds: 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.
Reynolds claims that the reason his character is missing a mask is because he hasn't actually become Deadpool just yet. He also notes that he WILL have visible scars. Check out the entire report here.
