Ryan Reynolds reveals he has plans for a lot more Deadpool movies
One of the movies of 2016...
If you haven't seen Deadpool yet, we urge you to make a bit of an effort and go and see it. It's one hell of a movie.
Disguised as a superhero movie, Ryan Reynolds plays the smart-talking antihero who makes a profanely amusing addition, if slightly more sweary character than we're accustomed, to the X-Men universe.
He's by far the snarkiest of Marvel's creations and despite the fact he's a deformed, samurai sword-wielding vigilante who can heal himself, his wit makes him far more human than many of the other characters in the Marvel stable.
The film was a roaring success last year and people have been crying out to know when the red spandex clad Wade Wilson (Reynolds) will make a return to the screen, and it seems Reynolds has good news on that score.
"I would love to play Deadpool for as long as they would let me play Deadpool. We have outlines and stories for a number of different films," he told Variety.
He also teased the idea of a standalone Deadpool film with Hugh Jackman, aka Wolverine, but the Aussie isn't too keen at the moment.
"I'm hesitating because I could totally see how that's the perfect fit," Hugh said. "But the timing may be wrong."
Ryan added: "I have no idea if I can change his mind. It's the audience: I would exclusively exploit that relationship to get Hugh back for another one."
All we can say is, we can't wait to see Deadpool back on our screens...
