Ryan Reynolds is Deadpool, the character is actually an extension of his personality. The role is one he fought for, for years, before the film was given the green light and when you think about it, there is no other star in Hollywood better equipped to take Deadpool on.
Reynolds says he’s sort of been preparing for the role for his whole life.
‘I wasn’t even considered a younger brother, I was just considered a moving target.’
He says he had to be quick with his wit because his strength wasn’t going to save him from his older brothers. Not that we’re glad families fight or anything (but who has siblings they didn’t pick on when they were young?) but we are glad he had to get that quick wit because it’s probably our favorite thing about him.
Next to, of course, how much he loves his family. Seriously, if you’ve somehow missed hearing him talk about Blake and their baby, look up some interviews. It’s the sweetest thing.
Another thing he loves IS Deadpool, and the 2nd movie is now actively filming and he celebrated the day with a social media post to say it’s good to be back.
He’s already shared a photo dressed as Deadpool lying in front of the X-Mansion and we’ve seen his ab workout routine to prepare for filming (thanks, Don), but knowing the film is actually in action now has us almost as excited as he is.
What do you hope to see in Deadpool 2? Let us know.
