Ryan Reynolds talks Deadpool Movie

From the Coventry Telegraph. . .

RYAN REYNOLDS has promised fans of Deadpool they will see a faithful version of the comic book character in the proposed spin-off.

The actor starred in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as sword-spinning Wade Wilson, who becomes the masked mercenary Deadpool.

Reynolds has now given an update on the project and assured comic book enthusiasts that there will be an accurate portrayal of the character.

He said: “I love it, because I get to be involved. And I’m such a huge fan of the character. I get to be the authentication police, in a weird way.

“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.”

Speaking to MTV, he said: “He’s going to be the Merc with the Mouth, [we’re going to give] all those answers that everyone wants. He’s going to have the scarred-up face, he’s going to be in the suit – and, it’s going to be incredible.”

The 32-year-old actor continued: “Right now, it’s just a question of trying to figure out what is the spine of the story,” he added. “Who is the villain? What does Wade and/or Deadpool want?

“And how do you tell that story? Are we going to see flashbacks to his old life, flash-forwards, present-day? We’re just trying to figure that stuff out.”

He and the studio are in the process of seeking a writer and director for the solo adventure.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine and…Deadpool?

When fans of the X-Men film franchise (those who hadn’t yet downloaded the film’s leaked workprint) first saw the movie Deadpool action figure, it’s safe to say that there were very few people pleased about this:

(image from ToyFare) I’ve never been the type to cry foul when Hollywood has to make changes to comic canon (sometimes things have to be done to translate this stuff for a wider audience), but this (and what we see int he film) does seem like they went a little far. Despite some vague efforts to get the eye patterns to resemble the Deadpool we know and love, fans of the wise-cracking, fourth-wall breaking one-man army (who, by the way, has no problem speaking) are going to have to wait for a new Marvel movie to get a treatment of the hero who seems to have been inspired by Hellboy’s Karl Kroenen or a toothless version of Moral Kombat’s Baraka. Which is either a plus or a shame, because Ryan Reynolds does seem like he could have carried off a far more comic-accurate version of the character. But we’re here to talk about figures, so here’s a look at the complete collection of Wolverine Origins items we’ve not got in stock. It includes Wolverine in his high-tech skivvies as Weapon-X and the Baraka-style Deadpool. Fortunately, it also includes the classic Deadpool, Wolvering AND Gambit for purists.

And hey, for anybody still needing that Deadpool fix without the dreaded “Origins” tag, we’ve got you covered in two ways. First, there’s the Marvel Legends Series 6 Deadpool, which comes with a full-length comic and an alternate head that actually manages to look pretty compared to that of his latest incarnation.

The above Marvel Legends Deadpool is a pricey piece, and definitely one for collectors, but the next item is very much “for all”: the Superhero Squad Deadpool and Punisher. Two characters very much unused to being adorable, they pull it off nicely in this 2-figure set from Hasbro. Of course, there’s nothing Hollywood likes like a sequel. So who knows what’s next for our beloved Wade Wilson? You never know: maybe next time they’ll get it right.
