deadpool movie costume Ryan Reynolds Talks Deadpool Trailer & Costume

MTV Splashpage just put up another Ryan Reynolds interview segment continuing off of the Deadoool update post we put up yesterday. All of these updates seem to be from the same interview a while back, divided into a bunch of separate news items. Yesterday’s talked about Reynolds’ wishful hopes of someone like Quentin Tarantino helming the Deadpool flick and we also spoke about the rumor of Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick possibly taking over the scriptwriting duties for Fox.

In today’s update, Reynolds talks about how the Deadpool trailer must play out, the costume of the “Merc with a Mouth” and the challenges of finding the right story for a full length feature film adapation.

To start, Reynolds admits that he’s not tried on a Deadpool suit, nor is there one created for him to wear just yet (unlike with Green Lantern). He loves the costume and thinks that might be one of the easiest creative aspects of the project and that the real challenge comes with adapting his scattered history into a feature film with a sensible story.

“You want to find the best version of what’s in the comic books, but like a lot of [characters], Deadpool has one of the more inconsistent narratives… It’s tough, because the series has been dropped and reopened so many times. You really have to pick and choose so many of the best elements and cobble those together and create the movie of your dreams.”

As for the plan for the trailer, Reynolds has a pretty unique idea for what that should consist of, which demonstrates his true passion for this character and film.

“I’ve told Fox already that the only way there’s ever gong to be a ‘Deadpool’ trailer is if Deadpool makes his own trailer… He needs to be talking to the movie audience … with the movie trailer voice: ‘In a world… gone mad… one man… must stand alone…’”

This may be difficult to pull off but if someone must break the fourth wall as a comedic live-action comic book character, Reynolds is the right man for the job. He is really destined to play Wade Wilson and I hope the complex character is done justice by Fox and the creative team.

To see the rest of this one part of MTV’s segmented interview with the Canadian star, head over to MTV Splashpage where he also discusses playing Green Lantern in addition to this role.

Would a trailer like Reynolds’ idea work? Should Deadpool’s costume stay true to the Marvel Comics?

  1. I think Fox might go by the book on this one, they probably don’t see it as a popular property and are just doing this for the fanboys that they know hate the studio for what they did to previous X-films, they could care less about this character, but they know that after The Last Stand and X-Men Origins the core of the audience is the fanboy who spreads the word on these films so they’ll put this one out to butter us up and hope we come back for more Fox Studios mistakes.

  2. Fox always says they’ll go by the book and then disappoints so who really knows but Reynolds continues to be positive about the movie – which is good.
    A trailer is far off though.

  3. If he ends up looking like that picture above I would be very happy. The mask can come off whenever he wants but deadpool would be badass with that costume.

  4. If the trailer gets narrated by Deadpool I am sold. That is very Deadpool.

  5. Agreed. I hope they go through with this idea

  6. The cool image is of course Snake Eyes that someone edited. I just edited that work and threw in the logo.

  7. That costume looks awesome. I have no prior knowledge of Deadpool but the ideas for this movie sound very creative and intriguing. And I will see Ryan Reynolds in pretty much anything.

  8. Yes, and yes.

  9. I think if Ryan Reynolds does not get his way on this movie than he should walk away. But even if they film it the way he wants, who’s to say that Fox studios won’t kill it in the editing room…. and turn it into a PG movie aimed at preteens or sumthin…. Ryan should go after creative rights for the film and make sure it’s done his way, cuz there is no-one else I want to see in this role! Tarantino directing would be friggin sweet!

  10. that should hopefully be what deadpool is going to look like, edited snake eyes pic or not, its close to the perfect look, i can picture reynolds face in that costume.
    so far i havent seen one comic book movie adaptation that has stayed even 70% true to the comics, editors/producers/directors seem to always change things around and its the little things that stuff a would be great movie up (in the case of x-men it was the producing and writting that made it fail)

    i to hope that the trailer is narrated by the merc with a mouth, as that will definitely put comic readers in the mood and show us whos really running the show… or in this case movie :D

  11. I think dannyboy is right about the fact that fox should let reynolds have the movie his way because he sounds like he knows his stuff

  12. I’m so excited about Deadpool but I dont trust greedy Fox.

  13. @ mario,

    yes, lol. I said that in a comment above.

  14. The idea for the trailer is perfect especially for this character.

  15. That trailer idea is perfect. Reynolds remains the only reason I have any faith in this movie. He knows this character better than any comic book actor has ever known their character. Even if they get a crappy script and a crappy director, I just see Reynolds making it work.
