FROM SPLASH PAGE: Despite his status as the “Green Lantern” lead, Ryan Reynolds is pulling double duty in the comic book world as Deadpool in the antihero’s upcoming solo film. Since the “Deadpool” movie was announced, Reynolds has been very vocal regarding his desire for the film to stick closely to the character’s comic book roots, specifically the need to break down the fourth wall.
With “Zombieland” writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick set to tackle the “Deadpool” script, fans can only hope that the screenwriters are adhering to Reynolds’ wishes to keep the story close to the merc with a mouth’s origins. Luckily, it sounds like the actor’s vocal desires aren’t falling on deaf ears.
“I talk to them every single day,” Reynolds told MTV News during an interview at the Sundance Film Festival. “We’re all very sick of each other already. It’s actually a really wonderful creative trifecta — we’re having a very good time.”
