i still seriously get so defensive when people say ryan reynolds is a bad wade wilson because like…he’s literally /perfect/ for the job, this is a man who nerds out about deadpool, who based his own personal comedy off the character but who also fully understands and appreciates the darkness within him and his narrative, an actor who can do both drama, comedy, and action whom i have no doubt can mix those things together seamlessly and your biggest concern, in the age of god damn cgi and make-up effects, is that he’s “too pretty” for the role lmao
he’s the tragic case of the perfect casting for the worst movie.
He jumped at the chance to play a character he loved. The first 20 minutes of that movie were pure gold. Wade was perfect. it was flawless. Ryan had no control over where the movie took it. he had no control over the ending or what the writers and director changed. He got the script and was so excited to get his hands on this role he wanted so bad, he was lead to believe it would be a smashing success following the other movies performances.
The movie had faults. a lot of them. none of which can be found with him. With a script that isn’t 100% garbage, he could make the most successful superhero movie in history.
OH MAN HE WAS SO GOOD AS DEADPOOL?!? When he was able to talk and do stuff he was actually the only part of the movie worth watching.
And i am really not his fan, yet i think he would be perfect for that role in a movie that actually makes sense and gives justice to the character.
I’m just amazed at how it’s telling SO MANY interesting stories at once. Like, it’s a love story! And space politics! and space battles! and academic analysis! and fandom meta commentary! and has amazing character development!?!!?
