Ryan Reynolds talks about Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds spoke to MTV about his role as Wade Wilson aka Deadpool in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine film. He spoke the importance of the character, his origin story in the film, and his desire to play the role of the “Merc with a Mouth” for years now. He also mentions that he will be playing both roles - Wilson and Deadpool.

I do like the fact that when he mentions that, if he did get a chance to do a stand alone Deadpool movie, he would love to have it with Deadpool breaking the Fourth Wall. Speaking to the audience and knowing that he was in a film, which is the Deadpool we all know and love.
“To be able to [play the part of Deadpool] in ‘Wolverine’ is incredible, you know, and it really does trace the origins of the character Deadpool,” said Reynolds. “You really see his birth, his evolution from Wade Wilson to Deadpool, and really he is more or less the creature that becomes Deadpool later on, but we see his humble beginnings.”

Most likely, one of the reasons why Reynolds seems to be so excited to talk about the role stems from the fact that it’s been a character he’s wanted to play since the 1990s.

“I’ve been trying to play [Deadpool] since the ’90s,” said Reynolds. “So to get a chance and get out there and do it in any form — whether if it’s in a ‘Wolverine’ movie or if it’s in a standalone Deadpool movie — was exciting to me.”

“The first time I read a ‘Deadpool’ [comic] I thought, ‘Oh, this would be kind of cool,’ and then that took off a little bit more in 2004, 2005,” added Reynolds. “It was actually an option that these be made into a movie at some point, so that’s where I started to pursue it a little bit more.”

Awesome! You found the full interview of this!
I am still trying to figure out the full scheme of things of Deadpool in the "Wolverine" movie, so we will have to wait and see the movie to figure out what they really do.
A "Deadpool" movie would be pretty sweet indeed!
