Deadpool is definitely an interesting character! If you have no idea on who the Marvel character is, Deadpool is a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary with the superhuman ability of an accelerated healing factor. He is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” because of his talkative nature and tendency to break the fourth wall, which is used by writers to humorous effect.
“It would be kind of hard, wouldn’t it? Because you have a character – let’s say you have a character who knows he’s in a comic book movie, that sort of breaks the fourth wall [and] has a tendency to kind of say people’s real names instead of their characters’ names. How do you introduce that into another universe that…does not do that?” Reynolds told them. “So…I don’t know. I’d be curious to say. I’m not saying that’s not going to happen. I don’t know if it’s going to happen. I would love to see that.”
Of course, while in his solo Marvel Comics title Deadpool has frequently broken the fourth wall, he’s also taken on a more traditional superhero – or at least antihero – role in team books like Uncanny X-Force. That all isn’t to say he isn’t up for it, just that he wants to make absolutely certain that Deadpool (or any other X-Men character) never gets a confused treatment on screen again.
“You have to be very careful about how you do that because you don’t want to do a disservice to any one of these characters that are beloved by everyone.”
I’m interested on how they are going to do things, since the new Deadpool movie will be Rated R. It is also the LAST comic book character that Ryan Reynolds will be playing (he was in Blade & Green Lantern and R.I.P.D.)
Deadpool hits theaters on February 12th, 2016
