Ryan Reynolds Talks DEADPOOL; "The Studio Is Reluctant To Pull The Trigger..."

Talking at a recent junket for animated movie The Croods, Ryan Reynolds has offered a brief update on Deadpool. It sounds as if the R-Rated screenplay is still causing the studio some major concerns. The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Emma Stone also praises the upcoming sequel.

Marvel fans have been waiting on the Deadpool movie for almost as long as DC ones have been waiting for Justice League, but the following update from Ryan Reynolds - who played Wade Wilson in X-Men Origins: Wolverine - doesn't make it sounds as if it will be moving into active development any time soon. You can find a transcription of what the Green Lantern star had to say below, but be sure to watch the interview to hear what Emma Stone had to say about The Amazing Spider-Man 2's screenplay. Many thanks to our friends over at Hey U Guys for the video.

"It's up to the studio. The studio I think is reluctant to pull the trigger on such a hard Rated-R script. Then the guys who wrote it and the producers won't make it unless it's that hard and, you know, raunchy."

I've read the script, it is amazing. Fox is stupid not to make it. One of the few scripts I've read that made me laugh out loud.

Let's just hope after dofp they come around. It actually makes sense to do it then anyway.

Deadpool pulls the trigger...he pulls it all the time...he can't stop pulling it!
That means he shoots a lot of people.
And masturbates.

I couldn't care any less about Deadpool, he's a character that just doesn't interest me at all. But all that aside I think If the Deadpool game is successful they'll go for it.
MrReese - 3/20/2013, 6:58 AM
Fox is sleeping on Deadpool I swear.

While I love every X-Men movies so far...

...Hell, FOX don't have a clue of what to do with their properties.
CavEl - 3/20/2013, 7:12 AM
Ryan Reynolds bombs as a leading man...see Green Lantern.
marvel72 - 3/20/2013, 7:13 AM
fox = stupid idiots.

they can't see the potential with a character like deadpool.deadpool would make money its that simple.
JatevinM - 3/20/2013, 7:14 AM
JakeTheSuperGuy@ Reynolds was not the problem for Green Lantern that shitty story, writing, and in some cases lackluster visuals is what killed Green lantern.
ShadowOfTheWeb - 3/20/2013, 7:15 AM
do it already. DO IT!!!
JR - 3/20/2013, 7:16 AM
@JaketheSuperguy, Ryan was not the problem with the GL movie, I think you should check the movie again and see that the story was the one to blame, he did what he had to do.....
ATrueHero1987 - 3/20/2013, 7:18 AM
Sounds like the meeting between FOX, Miller, and Liefield didn't go so well after all.
ATrueHero1987 - 3/20/2013, 7:18 AM
Let's hope the Deadpool video game does well.
darkjoker1 - 3/20/2013, 7:20 AM
-_- i want a deadpool movie already come on fox its only deadpool you cant mess that up XD
jlabatman0511 - 3/20/2013, 7:23 AM
Yeah about that deadpool movie....NO SHIT!
FalafelVsShawarma - 3/20/2013, 7:29 AM
DeadPool and Wolverine movie have to be Rated R if they want to stick with the the "Source material" ;)
HongKongPooey - 3/20/2013, 7:30 AM
give it back to Marvel and let his banter run with Stark lololololol
InfiniteMonkey - 3/20/2013, 7:33 AM
FOX...its an oxymoron.
GenerationX - 3/20/2013, 7:34 AM
Don't give a shit about a Deadpool movie...this movie was dead in the pool years ago. I can't believe people are still discussing this crap.
HulkDraxGroot - 3/20/2013, 7:34 AM
Do it right or don't do it at all!
JatevinM - 3/20/2013, 7:34 AM
FalafelVsShawarma@ Deadpool is the only one that requires a rated R movie. Wolverine can get a way with a really hard PG-13 and I doubt a rated R Wolverine movie ever gets done because that would alienate the younger audience who watches these movies.
SpideyQuad - 3/20/2013, 7:41 AM
Do it, or give it up. Move aside and let the big boys do it
JatevinM - 3/20/2013, 7:42 AM
This is probably the only movie that it would make sense for Michael Bay to direct
JMESS - 3/20/2013, 7:43 AM
I usually dont like to leave negative comments but Deadpool is a gay as Ryan Reynolds is. As for the comment above me (@fettastic)I have read some, didnt laugh, so bad guarantee, its not for everyone and Im one of them.
souhunter - 3/20/2013, 7:47 AM
If thay [frick] this up I will [frick] them in there ass till they bleed & then I will shove my bloddy dick in there mouth till they cry & beg for death. Yours truly soul hunter
JatevinM - 3/20/2013, 7:47 AM
JMESS@ Then dont watch the movie its really just that simple
JMESS - 3/20/2013, 7:50 AM
@Jatevin I dont plan on it, but when someone says they guarantee something and I dont agree with it I feel like saying my side of it. just that simple
JMESS - 3/20/2013, 7:55 AM
@PeterDarker I didnt mean literally gay but interesting thats where your mind went. I just think hes been a horrible cast for any superhero role.
drfate - 3/20/2013, 7:55 AM
Deadpool sucks. And he's completely unknown outside the comic realm. Those two reasons alone means financial bomb.

Whatever about it that works in the comic (for the eight people who read it) won't translate to film.
Jollem - 3/20/2013, 7:58 AM
they should just do a cartoon
KryptonitePen - 3/20/2013, 8:00 AM
Deadpool has plenty of marketability and Reynolds may not be perfect for other superheroes but his wisecracking, jock asshole attitude would come off perfect for he merc with a mouth. My local comic shop constantly sells out of their deadpool merch both new and old. The fans are there, FOX just don't like taking chances. A shame too cause 2 hours of Reynolds in a scarlet and black suit shooting people in the face while laughing and eating burritos and singing along to the soundtrack playing sounds wonderful to me.
Also, girls love him, I only started reading him because my fiance added it to the pull.

*deadpool fan*
Jollem - 3/20/2013, 8:02 AM
well, i think there was only 4 or 5 people that read an iron man comic before the movie came out, so...they can movie any character, even ant-man :)
Bucht - 3/20/2013, 8:02 AM
I doubt a Deadpool movie could work, but I'm sure it won't if FOX is making it.
JatevinM - 3/20/2013, 8:04 AM
DrFate@ Really because Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, GOTG, Blade, The Punisher, Ghost Rider, and so many other characters were all known to audiences long before a movie was talking about.....

Plus I dont think Deadpool would be as popular as he is if only a small number of people read his comics.
