Ryan Reynolds talks about the Deadpool we will see

MTV spoke with Ryan Reynolds about the character of Wade Wilson and the fast tracked Deadpool spinoff film

"I love it, because I get to be involved," Reynolds said of reprising his X-Men Origins: Wolverine role. "And I'm such a huge fan of the character."

The actor and 20th Century Fox are looking for a director as well as someone to writer the film.

"I get to be the authentication police, in a weird way," Reynolds stated regarding the storyline. "To their credit - the studio's credit - they want to make an authentic Deadpool movie; they want to make it as close to the source material as possible."

Some of the things that Reynolds and Fox have determined are that "He's going to be the Merc with the Mouth, [we're going to give] all those answers that everyone wants," he offered. "He's going to have the scarred-up face, he's going to be in the suit - and, it's going to be incredible."

"Right now, it's just a question of trying to figure out what is the spine of the story," the actor said when mulling over possible plot points. "Who is the villain? What does Wade and/or Deadpool want?"

"And how do you tell that story? Are we going to see flashbacks to his old life, flash-forwards, present-day?" he added. "We're just trying to figure that stuff out."

I love the fact Reynolds is so passionate about the film, but I seriously doubt he will have much control over the film once it gets the script and director. I would love and hope to see the Deadpool we all know and love on the big screen. It's all going to be determined by who they get to direct it and how much interference the studio do. If Wolverine is anything to go by, the good intentions they set out with could well be watered down.

We shall have to wait and see.

I suspect he'll have more control than you'd imagine. From what he's saying it looks like he'll end up as an executive producer. If that's the case he should be able to veto most of the stupid decisions.

Of course this is all dependant on Tom Rothman keeping well back and letting whoever they hire get on with it...

"that body looks fake?" wat?

Jackman had ALOT of control over Wolverine - HE wanted to make it a PG film...when Snyder was approached to direct he wanted to make it a hard R rated film...he then went on to make watchmen anyway
