Ryan Reynolds has been cast as two iconic Superheroes from two of the biggest Comic Companies. He will be playing Marvel's Merc with a mouth -Deadpool and DC's Emerald Knight - Green Lantern.
Here is what he has to say of both roles.
About the Deadpool suit:
"No, there's no Deadpool suit that I've tried on,"
"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...'"
More on Deadpool:
"You want to find the best version of what's in the comic books, but like a lot of [characters], Deadpool has one of the more inconsistent narratives," he told MTV News. "It's tough, because the series has been dropped and reopened so many times. You really have to pick and choose so many of the best elements and cobble those together and create the movie of your dreams."
"Oddly enough, I think the suit is the easiest task, " he added. "It's such a cool-looking suit, too. It's just deciding on the material and stuff, but that comes into play once you get a script."
On playing two superhero iconic roles:
"There's such a vast difference between the characters, and I think people forget that I'm an actor," said Reynolds. "These are roles that just happened to fall under the umbrella of the comic book universe."
"I think there was some concern that I would make Green Lantern some kind of wise-cracking Wade Wilson-type, and that's not the case at all," he explained. "If that's what they wanted, why would I have screen-tested for the movie?"
Elaborating on playing Deadpool and GL:
"With the 'Deadpool' role, I've had a take on that for close to eight years now," he said. "You want to talk about gratifying? The fact that this is even being considered as a franchise right now is truly one of the highlights of my entire career."
"When you've wanted something this long and this badly, to have someone say, 'Yeah, we'll make it,' is a pretty amazing moment," laughed Reynolds.
I enjoyed a Ryan Reynolds film its always fun, even though he kind of play all his characters the same way.
