Why DEADPOOL's Ryan Reynolds Is Not Fazed By BATMAN V SUPERMAN Or Other 2016 CBMs

Considering his hard R-rated Deadpool adaptation has a budget relatively smaller than the other comic book movies of 2016, which are also ensemble superhero flicks, Ryan Reynolds was recently asked if he's intimidated by them. Check out his response!



When Ryan Reynolds spoke with Total Film to promote Mississippi Grind, the Canadian actor talked about the highly-anticipated Deadpool movie, why he's proud its R-rated, and also why he's not intimidated by the other comic book blockbusters that will follow the Merc with a Mouth next year.

"There has been a lot of talk about how I was instrumental in getting it made, which isn’t true at all," said Ryan Reynolds. "I wouldn’t say I spent every single day emailing the studio heads at 20th Century Fox saying, 'You’ve got to make this movie.'" He continued, "The fans are the ones that saw that leaked test footage – which really was never meant for anyone besides in-house studio people. That is really what got it made, but what I’m most proud of is we got to make the movie in the way it should have been made, which is rated R at a very modest budget."

Speaking of Deadpool's smaller budget, Reynolds was then asked if he's intimidated by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, and Suicide Squad, all of which have much larger budgets and an ensemble of superheroes. "I mean, Deadpool’s greatest superpower is annoying the shit out of people," Ryan Reynolds replied. "So I imagine that he would spark a heavy wave of ire from any one of those groups." Well said! What do you think?



Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. Directed by Tim Miller, while starring Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson), Morena Baccarin (Vanessa Carlysle), T.J. Miller (Weasel), with Ed Skrein, and Brianna Hildebrand (Ellie Phimister), the much-hyped Deadpool is scheduled to open in theaters on February 12, 2016.
