Ryan Reynolds explains how Deadpool corrects the mistakes of X-Men Origins: Wolverine
July 11, 2015

Second chances don't come often in Hollywood, but Ryan Reynolds had the opportunity to create a new beginning for the foul-mouthed Deadpool.

Though the obscene, unconventional character briefly appeared in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a film Reynolds matter-of-factly refers to as "a movie that was shot," fans of the Marvel Comics antihero can expect to see a portrayal more true to the comics when Deadpool hits theaters February 2016.

"Deadpool appearing in Origins is not the Deadpool we are representing in this film, in any way shape or form," Reynolds told EW's Jess Cagle and Jessica Shaw Saturday on EW Live on SiriusXM.

Carefully choosing his words so as to not offend famed-clawed star Hugh Jackman ("[He's] a very powerful man he orders airstrikes from his iPhone"), Reynolds explained that "we didn't quite get Deadpool right, so this is kind of an opportunity to get the most authentic version possible on the screen."

"I love that it's dark and twisted and rated-R and nasty and you get to do all these things that these gigantic comic book properties can't necessarily do," he said.

Reynolds also doesn't rule out the merc with a mouth appearing in other Marvel films down the line.

"Cross-pollinating that character is probably not without it's significant challenges but it can certainly be done."

Listen to the clip below to hear the Deadpool star explain why they also wrote a second script for the film, and what it is about his costume that separates him from all the other superheroes.




Ryan Reynolds talks 'cussing legend' Helen Mirren and his excitement for Deadpool
March 23, 2015

After years of speculation and the keyboard-smashing test footage that leaked in 2014, the long-awaited Deadpool movie is finally coming to fruition. Production has already begun in Vancouver. But before he steps into the gory shoes of the self-proclaimed "merc with a mouth," Ryan Reynolds stars as a passionate lawyer in Woman in Gold, which arrives in theaters April 1.

The movie follows the true story of Maria Altmann [Helen Mirren], a Jewish refugee who takes on the Austrian government to reclaim family-owned artwork stolen by Nazis during World War II. Check out the video below for a behind-the-scenes look at the film.
