Ryan Reynolds says Deadpool movie will deliver the goods

January 27th, 2015 by Marc Comments


You can say what you want about Ryan Reynolds, but the guy has passion…

With Deadpool starting to film in two months at 20th Century Fox – Reynolds’ second crack at the role (God bless Days of Future Past’s timey-winey hi-jinks) Reynolds has be telling everyone just why this is the Deadpool we deserve; talking tot MTV, the actor said: “It’s been a long time, but it’s happened in the right way and that’s all that matters.

We don’t have the kind of money that most superhero movies do, but that’s great, actually. Necessity is the mother of invention, and that’s why we get to make the movie we want to make.

“You gotta have faith in the people you’re working with, and have faith in the prep, and that’s all I’m doing. On this one, the prep’s been 11 years. You’d like to think you’re putting your best foot forward, but we’ll see.”

The issue of the leaked Deadpool footage (below) came up, with many thinking Reynolds himself leaked it to get the fans’ support for the movie which was stuck in limbo: “I would have FOX’s lawyers so far up my ass they could smell Wade Wilson’s feet. No, no, no I didn’t leak it. But I would have. Looking back now, in a heartbeat. I should go home and scan the old hard drive and see what I’ve got in there.”

So there you have it… the Deadpool movie we deserve? Well, here’s hoping…

Deadpool will be directed by Tim Miller and is set for release on February 12th, 2016.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
