Producer Lauren Shuler Donner has been talking about the upcoming live action Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds. She’s bringing some good new for the hard-core fans of the mutant mercenary: the movie Deadpool is a kind of reboot that won’t take the last Wolverine movie into account. Here’s what she said about
[… and about Ryan Reynolds:] I mean, look at Harrison Ford – he was in Star Wars and Indiana Jones at the same time and everyone was fine with that. Green Lantern could not be more different to Wade Wilson. Green Lantern is a guy who finds a ring and is thrust into this world, much like Spider-Man. Wade Wilson is a guy who unfortunately gets cancer, and volunteers for a test that will give him healing powers.”
So Deadpool will be a dark, snarky, very funny movie: well that’s tantalizing! Hope she will keep her word about this Deadpool movie and that it will be as witty as the comic books!
