Ryan Reynolds is no stranger to superhero roles. Through his career, he has played superheroes from DC and Marvel. His list includes superheroes like Hannibal King, Green Lantern, and now Deadpool. We all know that Green Lantern didn’t turn out too well for the actor. Ryan Reynolds tried his best to make the DC movie work, but unfortunately, it didn’t. A few years later came X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Fans expected Ryan Reynolds to do a better job as Deadpool. However, those expectations were dashed when they saw what looked like the final form of the Merc with a Mouth. It looked nothing like the Deadpool we know in the comics.
At last, after huge demand by the fans, Ryan Reynolds will be suiting up as the Deadpool we all wanted. After the official posters, images from the set, costume images, and the trailer, fans can breathe a sigh of relief. They are finally going to see Deadpool on the big screen. If asked which suit looked better on Ryan Reynolds, Green Lantern, or Deadpool, it would always be Deadpool for obvious reasons. However, if you ask the man himself, this would be his answer. Here is the interview.
‘Interviewer: You’ve now played two big superheroes in movies. In Green Lantern, you wore a completely computer-generated costume.
Ryan Reynolds: Yeah.
Interviewer: And in Deadpool, you wore an actual physical costume that you put on your body.
Ryan Reynolds: Hell yeah.
Interviewer: Which of those two costume experiences did you prefer?
Ryan Reynolds: 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, but like – a lot of people relate to [Deadpool] because he has cancer. So we worked a lot with the Make a Wish Foundation and 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. And that’s something I never really got to experience before because 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.’
There you read it! Ryan Reynolds’ answer is legit and very meaningful too. In movies, everyone, including the actor, would actually to wear a spandex suit instead of wearing motion capture one. Too much detailing on the Green Lantern costume was what gave it away. It looked awful. Where the Deadpool costume is concerned, it looks perfect.
Moreover, speaking about the Make a Wish Foundation, Ryan Reynolds even posted an image of him granting a fan’s wish by not only meeting Deadpool but also getting the mask. That’s what makes Ryan a great guy. All of us are excited to see him wear the red and black costume and be the badass Deadpool is known to be.
