Ryan Reynolds is all praises for his "Deadpool" costume. The actor told Screen Rant that he prefers the "Deadpool" costume more than the one her wore for 2011's "Green Lantern." He added that unlike "Deapool" there was no real suit for "Green Lantern" because it was created using motion capture technology.
"Oh, ‘Deadpool,’ you can’t even compare -- I mean, it’s brutal doing a film where you’re wearing a motion capture suit for the whole time. Just as an actor it’s brutal. There was no Green Lantern suit. I didn’t even get to see the Green Lantern suit until the first trailer. I never even knew what it looked like. So [‘Deadpool’] was a pretty great experience. I love having the tactile, real deal, all the time," he said.
He added that the title character in "Deadpool" has cancer, and as he was filming he got to meet kids from the Make a Wish Foundation, which works with children who have the disease. “Those kids would come on set, and I loved hosting them. Because when I’d walk out in that suit, you’d watch their minds explode, and that felt amazing,” he added.
“Deadpool” concerns a mercenary who gets accelerated healing powers after he is subjected to a rogue experiment. Due to cancer, he gets ability to regenerate damaged or destroyed body tissues during the gene therapy. In the comics, during the therapy his skin also gets horribly scarred. He is also a master martial artist and a swordsman and has extended longevity.
