recently sat down with X-Men Origins: Wolverine
co-star Ryan Reynolds
and asked him how he felt about doing a spin-off film on his character Deadpool.
Reynolds joked, “I’m thinking musical — Rated ‘R’ musical. It hasn’t been done. Deadpool singing, dancing…dancing girls…”
Putting all jokes aside, Reynolds does think the movie is possible, but only if the right people are involved:
“Is it a fractured narrative, does it take place in the present, future and past — I feel like that’s the way to do a ‘Deadpool’ movie. You definitely have to break the fourth wall and you have to find a way to make that make sense, which is no small feat. So it would involve a really talented writer, an amazing visionary director and I think a great collaboration between everybody passionate about this character.”
In addition to a great team, Reynolds added that he has no interest in making a spin-off film unless the entire creative team is on board with making a very faithful adaptation of the character:
“I’ve made no secret about my desire to do a ‘Deadpool’ movie, but if you’re going to do it, it would have to be 100% faithful to its origins. To stay as true to the source material as possible is the only way to do it, and I say that because there’s nothing more interesting than the source material for Deadpool. There’s no reason to deviate from that.”
