Ryan Reynolds Says DEADPOOL Will Have No Connection To X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

Ryan Reynolds Says DEADPOOL Will Have No Connection To X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

Ryan Reynolds sat down to promote his newest movie Safe House when he was asked about Deadpool. Reynolds reiterated the fact that it needs to be R rated and said it is no the same Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

IGN talked with Ryan Reynolds, who was doing his press rounds for Safe House, where they asked him about the Deadpool movie that has been taking forever to develop. Reynolds said, once again, that the film has to be R rated and that this version of Deadpool will not be the same Wade Wilson from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. They also asked him about the status of Green Lantern 2, but like previous answers he just said it wasn't up to him.

On Deadpool:

"The script, I think, is fantastic. It has been developed even further in the last three months or so. The film has to be rated R, and it has to be done a certain way, it has to do all these things that I am sure can worrisome for the guys cutting the checks for it. So if it's going to be done, it needs to be done right. It will actually have no connection to the one that was in Wolverine."

On Green Lantern:

"I have no idea (On the chances of a second Green Lantern). Those movies have huge scale budgets and those kinds of thing. Working in budget world like that is not fun, because you have a lot of investment and outcome. But if we end up doing a Deadpool movie that could be a lot of fun. Having the opportunity to do it rated R would be the budget would have to be down enough where you can afford to take big risks and do most things that superhero movies can't do yet."

X-Men Origins: Wolverine was an expensive abortion

I'll probably be dead by the time this comes out. I hope not though..
StrangerX - 2/28/2012, 7:06 AM
I agree with Grif
souhunter - 2/28/2012, 7:10 AM
Just make it & make it right. [frick]ers
Celenco - 2/28/2012, 7:14 AM
Is Grif growing up? His comment is more thought out or is this just a fluke?
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 2/28/2012, 7:14 AM
I would like it to have no connection with Ryan Reynolds, but in the words of the Rolling Stones, "You can't always get what you want."

MarsivNayr - 2/28/2012, 7:15 AM
I think what Grif should be saying is, "What was the point of X-men Origins: Wolverine?"
plasticman - 2/28/2012, 7:17 AM
I don't understand how Punisher, Blade, and Ghost Rider can be made and have sequels and they don't even have the draw that Deadpool would.

They need to stop playing pocket pool with their ideas and start production ASAP!

It will make money, mark my words! Kids old enough to know who Deadpool is will find ways to sneak into this movie and us adults will definetly be warming the theater seats and eating the popcorn as we watch what could be one of the greatest action movies in a long time unfold in front of our eyes.

If they are worried about not making the almighty dollar from merchandising then make merchandise and toys geared toward adults!
TheIconicMan - 2/28/2012, 7:18 AM
I'm relieved. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a crap movie... Everybody knows that.
MercMatt - 2/28/2012, 7:18 AM
Gah! Less talk, more Deadpool!
Sanderman - 2/28/2012, 7:18 AM
well there is one connection..cough* cough* ryan reynolds cough*
TheDesertGorilla - 2/28/2012, 7:20 AM
Reynolds makes shit CBM's, hope he just isn't involved at all anymore.
bhorwith22 - 2/28/2012, 7:23 AM
Thats kind of funny. The same actor playing the same character. One would assume it would be in the same universe, however loosely connected it may be.
MisterNiceGuy - 2/28/2012, 7:26 AM
Ryan reynalds and cbm's dont mix. they better make this movie right or I'm going to hulk smash the shit out of justin beiber
valeriesghost - 2/28/2012, 7:27 AM
Sean William Scott? Hmmm, i could see that...
BlanketMan - 2/28/2012, 7:29 AM
Just like GHOST RIDER 2 had no connection to GR1. Such silliness. If it's the same actor playing the same character... sorry, it's a sequel! Hopefully, Reynolds is referring to the Deadpool at the end of Wolverine (which was the only time he was called "Deadpool"), as the Wade Wilson at the beginning of WOLVERINE was easily the best part of the movie.
Jolt17 - 2/28/2012, 7:33 AM
Agreed...Seann William Scott, or Jensen Ackles or Devon Sawa could be cool, too.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 2/28/2012, 7:35 AM
I agree with Sean William Scott. He was hilarious in Role Models and Goon.
MisterNiceGuy - 2/28/2012, 7:35 AM
And I gotta say. I have the deadpool soundboard on my android, I can't picture Reynalds saying any of it and being funny. SWS is a better choice IMO
zerakis81 - 2/28/2012, 7:38 AM
Make a new,good GREEN LANTERN movie........
Cheesehead - 2/28/2012, 7:40 AM
I remember the last time they tried to reboot a concept using the same actor: We got Ghost Rider 2. No thanks.
satanors - 2/28/2012, 7:41 AM
Meh.... So are we still posting deadpool news till year 2020 when they will actually announce it?
Same old comments every-time deadpool news get posts.
a. they better make it right or i will start killing
b. Ryan reynolds is the best deadpool
c. after green lantern, ryan reynolds should nt touch deadpool
d. some comment about "4th wall" crap
e. Some comments about how bad Wolverine: origins was
f. How ryan reynolds is like actually deeply involved in the movie, like he is directing it or something .
f. and people like me commenting, which decade will this movie actually start production.

Screw this movie.... Guys Spartacus: Vengeance latest episode is the best and the most hot, happening and awesome thing last week. All hail the return of Gannicus.

satanors - 2/28/2012, 7:44 AM
I just noticed there is no CBM live chat available....or i cannot get to it. Can someone confirm why this happened or direct me to it? Please......
JaySchluffy - 2/28/2012, 7:46 AM
If it has no connection to Origins then shouldn't someone else be playing Deadpool?
Kayo - 2/28/2012, 7:48 AM
KNIGHT3000 - 2/28/2012, 7:49 AM
More of the same, I hope this does happen soon. If not Ryan Reynolds for Deadpool, MarkPaul Gosselaar. I actually think Gosselaar would be better, but Reynolds got it 1st.
satanors - 2/28/2012, 7:49 AM
Oh...i forgot to mention point g
g. Nathan fillion for deadpool :)

Are we convi-niently, racist-ically ignoring the poor little brown-poo colored indian's queries/doubts again?

I had this avatar first.
Zarog - 2/28/2012, 7:59 AM
I just want everything to revert back to Marvel Studios. The other studios have done mostly bad with the movies. Everything that hasn't been X-Men or Spider-Man related has not been all that good. Even in the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises there are some stinkers. DD, Elektra, Hulk, FF, and GR were all terrible.
Mysterion - 2/28/2012, 8:03 AM
@ Zarog: Agreed 100%
