There is much speculation about the character Deadpool’s appearance in future “X-Men” films. However, Ryan Reynolds, who plays the Marvel superhero, has his doubts. According to him it is not feasible to pair the talkative mercenary with the X-Men team.
“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 Screen Rant.
Reynolds did not totally dismiss the possibility of such a film, but said he'd be interested to know how it would work. He added that one has to be careful when bringing superheroes into other platforms, as one cannot be disrespectful to any character. Reynolds has already confirmed he will not play any other superhero after Deadpool, Huffington Post reported.
"Deadpool" opens Feb. 12, 2016. Tim Miller has directed from a screenplay by Rhette Reese and Pau Wernick based on a comic book by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld. The other cast members include Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysl, Ed Skrein as Francis/Ajax, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Andre Tricoteux as Peter Rasputin/Colossus.
The filming took place in Vancouver, and currently the film is in post-production. It concerns the origin story of Wade Wilson, a special forces operative turned mercenary, who gets accelerated healing powers after he is subjected to a rogue experiment. As Deadpool, he hunts for a man who almost destroyed his life.
