The Deadpool movie has been happening forever and will keep happening…forever, according to Ryan Reynolds

Everyone involved seems to really want a Deadpool movie but it hasn’t been able to form into anything solid yet. Speaking to Yahoo UK, Reynolds said:

In] its current iteration the movie’s actually very small,. There’s minimal impact to the studio, which is the way we’re kind of presenting it to them. We’re saying ‘Look, the budget is minimal. Therefore, can we do this the way it should be done?’ Which unfortunately needs a Rated R [age certificate] or it needs those elements. The script is probably available online, it leaked.

But it’s very meta, I mean the character knows he’s in a movie, he knows he’s in a comic book. He names studio executives in the script. So, it’s kind of a risky property. But, you know, we’ll see. It’s actually, within the last couple of weeks, taken a few very, very small tiptoes forward. In our lifetime? Yeah, I think so. I think if I were a betting man it’ll get made, eventually. I mean it’s just been developed to high heaven. It has great people around it, so we’ll see.

I think the question is, do you, as a viewer, still want a Deadpool movie from Reynolds? Is this actually one you’ve been anticipating? And is it worth making if Wade Wilson won’t have the Marvel Universe to riff off of?
