Flash forward to now, and the Deadpool film is in pre-production with Ryan Reynolds at the helm. Two weeks ago, IGN got an exclusive sit down with the Canadian star to talk about his current projects and the Deadpool spinoff.

“We’re just trying to get it right. There’s so many variables to play. It’s tough because when you have a character like Deadpool, to the greatest extent of your power, you want to bring as much authenticity to that character as possible. And by “authenticity,” I don’t mean that you’d want to make him somebody that you’d have a Starbucks coffee with, I mean that you want to make him as close to the comics as possible. And there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do to make sure that ends up on film, but sometimes things are out of your control, things that you can’t change. But I’m really happy, in these early talks, that the studio is as obsessed with making it as close to the comic book source material as possible. And that’s all I really needed to hear. Cuz I will husk-f*@k a herd of cattle to bring Wade Wilson to life as the real deal.”

Uhhh… a little extreme but I love it. IGN also asked him if he had a message to give to fans who are worried about the Deadpool character and how he will be portrayed from what happened to him in Wolverine.

“If they can imagine if one of them were given the opportunity to do a Deadpool movie, just imagine that’s what’s happening. Just to have faith in that. And to have faith in the studio. It’s hard for fans to do that, but I feel like they really want to do an authentic Deadpool movie….He’s like Jason Bourne meets Phantom of the Opera by way of Caddyshack. And that, right there, is a wholly originally character, and that’s what excites the dark overlords who fund this film. And me.”

It’s a great long interview and Reynolds’ responses are pretty funny. They also talk about how the film will likely not tie-in too much with X-Men Origins: Wolverine and they hit on many other topics relating to the film as well – Check it out at IGN (link at bottom).

To give you the latest and best info yet, Reynolds interviewed with MTV on Thursday and talked about getting his dream job and confirmed some things for the film what should get fans excited. What’s also awesome about the interview and what we’re hearing is that Fox is seemingly not overly controlling it (at least not yet) and they’ve given Reynolds, who’s a big fan of the comics, control and input over pretty much every aspect of the movie.

“I love it, because I get to be involved… And I’m such a huge fan of the character.”

“I get to be the authentication police, in a weird way… To their credit — the studio’s credit — they want to make an authentic ‘Deadpool’ movie; they want to make it as close to the source material as possible.”

Great news! In addition to that, Reynolds explained that the studio and him have agreed to some important points:

“He’s going to be the Merc with the Mouth, [we’re going to give] all those answers that everyone wants… He’s going to have the scarred-up face, he’s going to be in the suit — and, it’s going to be incredible.”

Currently, he and the studio are on the hunt for a director and writers and figuring out how to best tell the story. Reynolds said they’re thinking of ideas like using flashbacks to his pre-scar days or using flash-forwards to the present and of the discussions with the studio, they’re figuring out who the villains will be and what Deadpool will want to do in the story.

Things are definitely looking up for this film and it has the potential to help turn the franchise around.

What do you think about Reynolds’ passion for the character and do you think the Deadpool movie is something to look forward to?

  1. Good points,

    It’ll probably go something like that if they follow their continuity.

  2. Or his real body is in some vault somewhere and they had to clone him becuase the dumb enhancements were so tramatic it kept killing the clones until one passed thru with flying colors and made it into the wretchedly putrid film known as X-men Origins

  3. @Ken J

    lol well since you seem to know me very well from my post, i guess there’s nothing more for me to say then. :p

  4. I think we would all greatly appreciate that Anakin.

  5. LOL Daniel. Probably for the better huh?

  6. Exactly Ken exactly. I think we would all be a little better off for it. Including him.

  7. Daniel, how come you and I are the only ones to make any comment on that? I thought “we” (you know what I’m talking about) are supposed to be the “racist” ones… *rolls eyes*

  8. I can’t say for sure Ken. It’s one of the following I would guess.

    A. Some people didn’t notice they leave a comment and don’t read every other comment.

    B. Some people didn’t notice they read a couple of comments, but can’t be bothered to read a full two pages of postings.

    C. Some people choose to ignore it because they didn’t want to take the risk of starting a fight because some people are simply afraid of confrontation.

    D. Some people agreed with him, but didn’t want to say it because very few people have the balls to admit they are racist pricks.

  9. Um, D, that’s my final answer…

  10. LOL, just kidding, yah, I guess most likely most people didn’t notice it. Which is good anyway…

  11. I will say I think we all have our faults and even most of us have a minor prejudice and that we should be able to admit them. I’m not saying we are all as flat out racist as this guy, but we all have our issues. Maybe you don’t personally think it’s prejudice or racist, but maybe generally it is considered to be. Even if you won’t say your that way at least be able to admit that maybe some will consider you that and own up to it.

    HI I’m Daniel and some people might consider me to be a tad bit Sexist. I don’t find my self to be a sexist and I’ve never been accused of being overly sexist, but I’ve been told I come off a little sexist at times. That’s me I can admit it. I’m also very blunt and overly honest and tend to be a tad bit opinionated. Oh well. I believe I’m always right and have a hard time accepting the concept of opinions because what’s the point in having one if you don’t believe yours to be right. I don’t see any reason to have a thought on something if your gonna walk around thinking it could be wrong. I think opinions give people an excuses to not believe in anything anymore.

    Oh and I also rambel and go off topic… As seen above.

    Ken wanna give it a try? Maybe we can have a screenranters annon weekly session started on the site.

  12. Deadpool is a stupid idea…if they spend more than 50 mill on making this movie they will NOT make their money back, if they spend less than 50 mill the movie will have horrible cheezy effects. Honsetly, deadpool is a chracter for nerds and nobody really even knows who he is unless they are a comic fanatic. In addition, Ryan Reynolds cannot have teh lead in a action movie, he just isnt that type of actor. If this movie comes out it will tank one way or the other. DUMB DUMB DUMB idea

  13. Deadpool is not just a character for nerds. Deadpool can easily appeal to a massive audience as long as it’s marketed right.

    Quick question who here knew who the hell John Mcclain was before Die Hard? Did you still watch the movie and love the hell out of it?

    Watchmen may not of been the biggest block buster hit in the world, but it made over 100 mil in America alone. More people know who deadpool is than knew what watchmen was easily. Plus I doubt deadpool will have some of the things that turned alot of the people away from Watchmen like a big swinging blue cock.

  14. Deadpool is more recoignizable than Watchmen and Watchmen made over 100Mil in the US alone not including over seas. Deadpool has also been featured in a major motion picture already. Deadpool is also a very appealing and easy to market to the masses character. He’s funny and a bad A. Deadpool isn’t just for nerds.

  15. That’s odd sorry about the double posting guys. I made the first one like two hours before the second one, but it never popped up so two hours later I assumed it wouldn’t go through and I posted a new one. /Lame sorry about that.

  16. Deadpool will not make more than 100 million domestically…NO WAY…Hellboy and Blade are both better known characters than Deadpool and those movies didnt even make that. Watchmen, in trailers and previews looked amazon and had teh whole 300 visual look to it which is why it made all taht money…reviews of the movie actually hindered further success. Deadpool will BOMB in theaters…only way they shoudl do it is if it is if they can maintain a low budjet…take this movie’s production costs to 150million and say HELLO to disaster

  17. Actually they are only more well known now that the movies have been out. They were not actually more well known before their movies came out in fact more people knew of Deadpool. Lets also not forget that Blade and Hellboy push away a big amount of audience being a violent movie about vampires and then a movie about demons from hell the devil and his child.

  18. insanity, and it’s not even thursday!!! i’ll admit, deadpool fanatic? guilty. as long as they stick to there guns, this movie will be dead-cool(get it?)! easily better than any other marvel adaptation recently, though i liked iron man… i am curious about what they’ll do about Cable though…

  19. (CAPS LOCK IN HONOR OF BILLY MAYS)
    NOT TO MENTION THE DEADPOOL MOVIE WILL PROBABLY BE PG-13 (IF THEY ARE SMART) AND PG 13 MOVIES MAKE MUCH MORE MONEY THAN R RATED ONES AS A GENERAL RULE. WHAT THEY DEFINITELY WILL NEED TO DO IS MARKET THIS MOVIE A LOT. THEY CAN NOT RELY ON NAME ALONE, BUT A FEW GOOD ACTION SHOTS IN THE TRAILER, WITH SOME FUNNY LINES WILL ATTRACT A LOT OF PEOPLE.

    • I agree but dead pool is prety grusome so it will most likely be rated r. but if they deside to make it like x-men then there is no blood or gore then it will be pg13 owe and screw the dead pool in x-men oragins at the end.

  20. Did none of you people even read this page of information. He want a re-boot of Deadpool not a continuation of x-men and he says he will not let Fox ruin it. Also Deadpool has one of the biggest cult fan group I will see this movie because they will restart my favorite comic book character. I’m gonna be optimistic about this movie and I don’t think the money is there focus I think maybe fox wants to fix what it did to this wonderful character.

  21. I just dislike the fact that Reynolds carries the image of Green Lantern as well, who has a similar persona. I am also aware that X-Men was the first release. As an eager nerd I would love to see this filmed despite who plays him as long as the character stays true to the cunning, bad ass, skin-cancered, womanizing guy we all know as Deadpool; The theatres can have my money.

  22. Ok might be a little crazy and slightly impossible but I think Quinton Tarantino (think I misspelled it..) would be an awesome director for this! Oh and Taskmaster has to be in this, I dunno if it’s too be a villain or what, but he’s gotta be there
