Well, this was probably inevitable after the smashing success of Wolverine, but I wasn’t going to believe it until I saw it. A Ryan Reynolds/Deadpool project has officially been greenlighted, and I imagine we’ll see it in theaters around 2011.
Reynolds did do a great job as Deadpool in the film, what little time he had onscreen, and I’m not entirely opposed to the idea of him getting his own movie. A few things however:
– Throw out the BS ending of Wolverine that changed the character into something it was never supposed to be
– Make him wear the mask, or else I’m going to think of him as Ryan Reynolds with swords the whole time rather than Deadpool.
– No need for a cavalcade of useless mutant guest stars.
Follow these simple instructions and I think you’ll have a pretty cool project.
