Ryan Reynolds Says He Wants To Play Deadpool For The Rest Of His Life


Ryan Reynolds has never shied away from a comic book movie, landing roles in RIPD, Blade: Trinity, Green Lantern and he made his first appearance as Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool, in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Now that he's been given the rare opportunity to portray a comic book accurate version of the Merc with a Mouth he has no interest in pursuing another role in the genre.

"I never want to play another comic book character again; Deadpool, I would like to play for the rest of my life – that'd be fun," Reynolds told IGN when asked if he'd be interested in playing Hal Jordan/Green Lantern again. "No, I've done a number of them, and I think it's time for other people to do them now. You've got to share the wealth on that one."

Listen to Reynolds' response in the video below.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool hits theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
