Someone Order A Deadpool Movie Update With A Side Of Optimism?

hollywood-movie-newsMarvel has been on fire at the box office with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. With that in mind, it’s been a bit slow for some of the less popular Marvel heroes to get their moment in the blockbuster spotlight. Especially with household names like Ironman, The Hulk, and Spider-Man to compete with. Actor Ryan Reynolds (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Green Lantern) recently sat down with Yahoo! Movies to discuss the progress on a live action Deadpool spinoff film. Based off his interview, I would not hold your breath for the film to get green lit any time soon. However the actor does have a bit of positive optimism that we will see the film…”eventually” (Source: Yahoo! Movies via ComingSoon)

Is the Deadpool movie getting closer? Ryan Reynolds talked about the X-Men Origins: Wolverine spin-off to Yahoo!:

“[In] its current iteration the movies actually very small. There’s minimal impact to the studio, which is the way we’re kind of presenting it to them. We’re saying ‘Look, the budget is minimal. Therefore, can we do this the way it should be done? Which unfortunately needs a Rated R or it needs those elements.”

He added: “The script is probably available online, it leaked. But its very meta, I mean the character knows he’s in a movie, he knows he’s in a comic book. He names studio executives in the script. So, its kind of a risky property. But, you know, we’ll see. It’s actually, within the last couple of weeks, taken a few very, very small tiptoes forward. ”

Asked if the movie was ever going to be made, Reynolds responded: “In our lifetime? Yeah, I think so. I think if I were a betting man it’ll get made, eventually. I mean its just been developed to high heaven. It has great people around it, so we’ll see.”
