Ryan Reynolds already played the role of Wade "Deadpool" Wilson in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," though most comics fans -- including Reynolds -- agree that it wasn't the best translation of the character to the live-action world.
A solo "Deadpool" movie has been in development for some time now, and though Reynolds has been busy lately with "Green Lantern," he revealed that all is not lost for fans of Marvel's Merc With The Mouth.
"'Deadpool' is still in the works," he said in an interview with Empire. "I’m not sure how logistically it works in terms of scheduling, but yeah, I want it to happen."
Those "logistics" are indeed a big problem for Reynolds right now. He's a hot commodity in Hollywood these days, with "Green Lantern" due in June, summer romantic comedy "The Change-Up" due in August, and upcoming work on a "Green Lantern" sequel and an adaptation of Dark Horse's "R.I.P.D." comic book series.
That's not to say Reynolds is worried about crossing the streams with regards to his comic book work, though.
"Those two universes are completely different," he said of the Marvel and DC franchises specifically. "Superhero movies are so pervasive in pop culture, I don’t look at them as superhero roles as much as just roles. ... They’re such different people. Deadpool is about a guy in a highly militarized shame spiral, Green Lantern is more universally themed."
