After X-Men Origins: Wolverine hit theaters in 2009, Ryan Reynolds was asked for years about the possible Deadpool spin-off at 20th Century Fox that had Tim Miller attached to direct from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
He said: “That movie is alive and kicking, and then it’s dead as a doornail. Then it’s alive and kicking and then it’s dead it’s like the worst relationship I’ve ever had! The character knows he’s a comic-book character, he knows he’s in a film, he knows who the executives are at the studio making the movie. In the current iteration of the script, Deadpool is aware of the Wolverine movie. He doesn’t say anything disparaging about it but he does at one point play with the Deadpool action figure with some curiosity.”
Do you think this could work? Do you think they should move forward with the movie?
