It's always good when the cast and crew of a given project love what they are working on. So is the case for Ryan Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool. Though the character didn't exactly get the most accurate of representations in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, to the point of being downright wrong, Reynolds isn't going to let that happen again for the spinoff.
Reynolds on Deadpool
While talking with Splashpage, Ryan Reynolds said that he is completely involved with the making of the Deadpool spinoff. He has reason to be, as he loves the character.
“I love it, because I get to be involved,” Reynolds said of his role in the fast-tracked development of a Deadpool spin-off film. “And I’m such a huge fan of the character.”
What about all those inaccuracies from Wolverine? Reynolds is hoping to wipe the slate clean by ensuring that everything is done by the (comic)book.
“I get to be the authentication police, in a weird way,” grinned Reynolds, who will show his versatility this month in the refreshingly-decent romantic comedy “The Proposal” June 19th. “To their credit — the studio’s credit — they want to make an authentic ‘Deadpool’ movie; they want to make it as close to the source material as possible.”
With that in mind, the actor told us that he and the studio have already agreed to some key terms. “He’s going to be the Merc with the Mouth, [we’re going to give] all those answers that everyone wants,” Reynolds explained. “He’s going to have the scarred-up face, he’s going to be in the suit — and, it’s going to be incredible.”
