"That's Me" - Ryan Reynolds Confirms Mystery Mutant IS Deadpool

"That's Me" - Ryan Reynolds Confirms Mystery Mutant IS Deadpool

The final word has come in on that mystery mutant in the lastest Wolverine movie trailer. The debate is over when the actor who plays the part says "That's Me!"

“That, I would say, is Deadpool, yeah,” Reynolds told MTV News. “When I’m in the scarred makeup too, and you’ll see closer shots obviously in the film, and it’s hard to even tell that’s me, but you can tell. You’ve just got to find a better shot.”

“I’m not going to get into exactly what’s going on with his mouth, particularly because he is ‘the merc with the mouth,’” added Reynolds when asked, given his previous response, what it was like to film with his mouth sealed. “But it’s going to be pretty interesting when people see it. People are going to be blown away and have a deep appreciation for what it is and how that character fits into this universe.”

Here's the video interview from MTV...

And a bit more they had up later...

And here's the trailer that started it all...

I knew it F$#KIN FOX! I knew they would screw this up! We can only pray that they somehow redeem themselves.

Undeadpool Lives! This is terrible!
TheMyth - 3/17/2009, 10:46 AM
I was a skeptic at first, then I accepted the idea, and good thing I did or I'd be PISSED! LMFAO! HAHA!

I' will still be there for the first AND second showings on opening day.

Lets just give it a chance before we all go crazy.
DarkAvengers - 3/17/2009, 10:51 AM
Whats with all the ads before the videos?
Smolo - 3/17/2009, 10:56 AM
Ads equals not paying for CBM.

Well i guess we will just have to wait for May. Alot of people were thinking Transformers was gonna blow, it didn't. GIJOE yea that shall blow. Well if anything Fox should do a Superman movie. I mean after last one how could it get much worse......
LastSon1027 - 3/17/2009, 10:59 AM
Yeah that's all so true but the difference between Wolverine and Transformers is FOX! Although I do have faith in G.I. JOE. It may not be exactly like the classic show we remember but I think it will be a pretty sweet movie. And you know after that last piece of shit they called a Superman movie I don't know if Fox could do any worse that is of course unless they let Brian Singer Direct it and make it a musical. F#%KING BRIAN SINGER! AHHHHHH!
Smolo - 3/17/2009, 11:06 AM
Lois "Sooommmmeeeboooddddyyy SAaaaaaaveeee meeeee......"

Superman busts out singing "I am Suuuppppperrrrmaaannnnn, and I am Herrrrreeeee to save the daaaayyyyyyyy....."

G.I.Joe - No longer a Real American Hero :(
Besides why would you wanna be in G.I.Joe Obama will just make you pay for your medical bills if you get hurt. And remember Cobra isn't causing Terrorism, its called "man-caused" disasters. So in the movie Cobra will be the good guys and the USA is the bad guys.....

SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?

Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.
LastSon1027 - 3/17/2009, 11:12 AM
Well it is true that they did take out the real American hero tagline as to not cut off their viewer base but I still think it will be an awesome movie. I mean if nothing else Scarlett and the Baroness have got rocking bodies.

JigJRod55 - 3/17/2009, 11:31 AM
Guys, stop blaming FOX for this. Yes FOX has pissed us off plenty in the past but this is a plot point, use the script writers as your scapegoats.
FrankDrebin - 3/17/2009, 11:35 AM
sounds like he was joking, but im shure he wasnt...im gonna see it anyhow
Isact - 3/17/2009, 11:38 AM
I'm not saying that it is not true, but did you notice when he says, "that is Deadpool, yeah" I swear it looks like he is lying. Almost like he is telling only apart of the truth, anyone else notice that?
Isact - 3/17/2009, 11:40 AM
Yeah even when he says, "I think" at the end and then "that's me. He looks like lying. weird.
NEXUS - 3/17/2009, 12:02 PM
DEADPOOL cant speak.
THOR is going to be played by Josh Hartnett.
& CAPTIAN AMERICA should be played by Dougy Houser MD.

I mean come one, when will some one stand up to FOX.
They are ass-raping marvel with no lube. Stan Lee
needs to put a cape on,and fight for his work.

We will see it because were fans, but its going to hurt!
Niem8211 - 3/17/2009, 12:04 PM
WTF I have said it from day one... I cant wait to see X-Men 3 ??? Oh I mean X-Men The Origins of Wolverine... What a F&^%ing joke! If Reynolds is so passionate about playing one of the best written comic charters of all time. Why wouldn’t he talk some since in this moron directors head... Or does Fox really have this much control over their movies and actors... F&^% FOX and the high hore they ride on!!!!!!!!
Doritos - 3/17/2009, 12:20 PM
Everything sucks to you right grif ? dont you suck too ?
Niem8211 - 3/17/2009, 12:20 PM
Nope not at all Grif... Well we always have Transformers and the Terminatior is look to be one kick ass movie also... Oh ya, F&%$ FOX
dogchasingcars - 3/17/2009, 12:22 PM
ok i still have faith i mean yeah this is a major downer but still fox could redeem themselves i mean we all did figure it out before he mentioned it that weapon XI was deadpool even though we didn't want to admit it. but hey maybe it won't be as bad who knows it might work out in the end this is just hoping of course though
NEXUS - 3/17/2009, 12:24 PM
I just had an idea for FOX, the first gay comic book movie. Neil Patrick Harris as (cappy) Josh Hartnett as (bucky) they fight together, they love together.

hay, Heathe won an Oscar for his gay role. This might be
the only way comic book movie's can start winning Oscars

what u guys think?

LEEE777 - 3/17/2009, 12:26 PM
Well all we can do is wait, i have faith in WOLVERINE!!!!! But hopefully FOX has seen so much bad reception over the DEADPOOL subject, they might do afew more cuts an maybe a couple of reshoots!!! They still got time!!! Well you never know!!! ; )
yellowtiger - 3/17/2009, 12:27 PM
lansdowne5, Sabretooth is slashing at Wraith not Beak.
dogchasingcars - 3/17/2009, 12:34 PM
Nexus dude that is sick kinda funny but just wrong on all levels
MisterNiceGuy - 3/17/2009, 12:45 PM
Juicerules - 3/17/2009, 12:45 PM
Let's just give it a chance. Hopefully his body will reject the weaopon XI stuff and become the Deadpool we all know and love. I mean they are supposedly thinking about making a Deadpool movie so they obviously have to have him talking again by the end of the movie. I don't think Reynolds would've taken the role if this was a one time gig.
blacksword7 - 3/17/2009, 12:51 PM
deadpool may be crazy and mutated for a while, but the likely outcome will be that after his confrontation with wolverine, he will loose all those extra powers that weapon x gave him and they will try to reverse some of the side effects of the procedure. this will most likely leave him capable of speach once again, but horribly disfugured and virtually powerless. that way we are left with a man who is the deadpool you are all fans of ( i know little about the character). also, it leaves it open ended, and a chance for more to come in his future.
crappybumbum - 3/17/2009, 12:54 PM
yeah really lets give it a chance...sure everyone is disappointed about Deadpool but eh, it's just one change y'know?
NEXUS - 3/17/2009, 12:54 PM
This movies going to have some cool parts, but the story is set to fail. The more i read and see, the less its about Wolvrine. I know they are not smart enough to put
MR.SINISTER as the reason for all of this. Wade/dead/weapon, no way that works! I just cant wait
for May 2nd, we are going to be so pissed. lol 2funny
Smolo - 3/17/2009, 1:06 PM
Come on ppl don't you remember that wonderful movie Called "Soldier" the lead character had maybe like a sentence. And boy did that movie rock.....barfffff.
TheSoulEater - 3/17/2009, 1:18 PM
Likened to THEMYTH, I've lived with it after counting to 10 and calming down.

I still think.....

That because Stryker would definatly take advantage of Wade's ablity to make an ultimate mutant weapon, it being his sadistic nature andd all, that Wade'll get so mashed up by sabertooth and Wolvie that he literally grows a new body, like Wolverine did when he fought the hulk, only he's more apt to do it due to his hyper healing factor.

Only his body heals the way its supposed to, with its original atributes, not with the added inhancments stryker made. THe trauma of the proceedure to give him the extra powers messed up his brain even more then it was before, he runs off with his self made costume from the weapon-x jump suit and becomes DEADPOOL
ManOfIron - 3/17/2009, 1:27 PM
... idk if i believe mr. Reynolds... i think he's messin w/ us :) i really do. watch how he acts. he smiles WAY too much about it. i think he's playin us
NEXUS - 3/17/2009, 1:28 PM
Good luck with that soul eater, i hope your right on.

But on something that has nothing 2do with deadpool
marvel released 2 great movies 2day Punisher and the rerelease of Haword the Duck. Both are just as great
as Wolvrine will be....lol
NEXUS - 3/17/2009, 1:31 PM
ryan does play. but remember he has a gag order
so he has to think b4 he spk's and thats what i think he was doing. he didnt want 2 give up 2much, but he gave us what we didnt want....hope he was playing
BrunoDJ - 3/17/2009, 1:34 PM
So what will we see after the credits? Mr. Sinister, masked Deadpool, or both?
SirExcalibur - 3/17/2009, 1:35 PM
Mother of pearl! lol. That was because the videos can't be played outside the US. Grr. The Deadpool thing, kinda sucks, but sounds like in the end things might be ok. Reynolds knows the character so I'm sure in the end it'll end up being Deapool...I'm hopeful anyways.
DSAhawker - 3/17/2009, 1:35 PM
Screw that...I refuse to pay for this movie and see that....there was absolutely no reason to do that to Wade/Deadpool....

I hope to god that this stupid phase of claws and laserbeams is just temporary and then turn him into the REAL Deadpool and not some bastardized version
DSAhawker - 3/17/2009, 1:35 PM
