Having just finished watching X-Men Origins: Wolverine, there was very little to be happy about. However, Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool was sort of fun to watch. In fact, Ryan Reynolds in general is a decent enough actor to watch especially in the last Blade movie. In that movie, Ryan’s snarky attitude and comic timing work surprisingly well. Moving forward, Ryan is scheduled to play both the Green Lantern and Deadpool. I do have doubts about both characters but more so about Deadpool.
I’m not one to take away from Ryan’s future role but rather, I don’t know enough about Deadpool to have an opinion since I never followed his comics. Doing some research, I guess the appeal about this character is the “Fourth” wall he breaks in the comics. If you are not familiar with the term “fourth” wall – simply put, this is the imaginary boundary between you and the character that is in a book, comic, play, movie or some other work. The character talks to you about their situation and basically brings you into their world or acts as a bridge between worlds. This trait is supposed to be carried through in the Deadpool spinoff movie. If done properly, we might get a movie like Ferris Bueller. If the movie sucks, we will get Kuffs; look it up. In any case, read below for more info from Ryan plus a Deadpool tribute video I found on YouTube.
EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Reynolds Talks ‘Deadpool’ Costume, Movie Trailer And ‘Green Lantern’ Questions
by Rick Marshall in DC Comics, Hot Stuff, Marvel, News
Yesterday, we brought you an update on the “Deadpool” movie’s writer and director search, straight from leading man Ryan Reynolds — and now we have the promised follow-up with the man tagged to bring both the Marvel mercenary and one of DC’s most iconic characters, Green Lantern, to the big screen.
“No, there’s no Deadpool suit that I’ve tried on,” Reynolds told MTV News when asked if he’s had a chance to see himself in the character’s familiar red-and-black costume. However, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t given any thought to other aspects of Wade Wilson’s solo debut.
“I’ve told Fox already that the only way there’s ever gong to be a ‘Deadpool’ trailer is if Deadpool makes his own trailer,” he laughed. “He needs to be talking to the movie audience … with the movie trailer voice: ‘In a world… gone mad… one man… must stand alone…'”
