Ryan Reynolds Talks Deadpool
There’s hope for the mouthy merc yet

Though DC diehards will no doubt be eagerly anticipating the big screen arrival of Green Lantern come June 17, there are still millions of us just as excited about the potential of Marvel’s “Merc With The Mouth” getting his chance to shine in his own lead role.

So as we were on set to speak with Mr. Reynolds himself for our feature on the willpower-wielding cosmic cop (see the current issue), we took a bit of time out with him to talk about Deadpool, beginning with the obvious question… what’s the deal there then?

Deadpool’s still in the works,” he insists. “I’m not sure how logistically it works in terms of scheduling, but yeah, I want it to happen.”

And what about the clash of two potential superhero brands, Green Lantern vs. Deadpool?

“Those two universes are completely different,” contends Reynolds. “Superhero movies are so pervasive in pop culture, I don’t look at the as superhero roles as much as just roles. They’re such different people. Deadpool is about a guy in a highly militarised shame spiral, Green Lantern is more universally themed.”

So these are quotes on top of previous details that yes, Deadpool will indeed “break the fourth wall”, previous reports that Robert Rodriquez might direct a script by the Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, then the noises about newcomer Adam Berg might helm the project.

But with a Green Lantern 2 script commissioned already, it’s all a bit up in the air – but with Ryan Reynolds still game, there’s still hope people, there’s still hope.

For exclusive quotes from Reynolds, as well as “much, much more”, simply pick up the new issue of Empire, which is on sale now in all good newsagents, and also on the iPad.
