Ryan Reynolds says Deadpool has no relation to X-Men: Origins

Remember Deadpool? The Merc with the mouth? Remember how Ryan Reynolds awesomely portrayed Wade Wilson in the movie X-Men: Origins and then somehow they screwed things up horribly before the film finished and he wound up looking like a teleporting penis with claws? Well, you can wash away your fears that they would try to re-tool what was already done to the character because, according to Ryan Reynolds, they’re just gonna wash it away and give the character a good ol fashioned ‘do-over’.

(Deadpool) will actually have no connection to the one that was in (X-Men Origins:) Wolverine.”

This falls in line with comments made by producer Lauren Shuler Donner in May, who said Deadpool would be a complete reboot of the character. The actor also said that the Deadpool script is still being developed, and that they are aiming for an R rating.

“The script is, I think, fantastic. It’s been developed even further in the last three months or so. The film has to be rated R, and it has to be done a certain way, it has to do all these things that I am sure can be worrisome for the guy cutting the checks for it, so if it’s going to be done, it needs to be done right.

Well the film has been in development hell for quite some time so my presumption is that the people signing the checks are still waiting for whatever they feel will make this movie a hit before production can begin. I mean, the script has been getting work for quite some time and we’ve yet to even get a start date for this one. I like what Reynolds claims they want to do but I’m not investing myself in these words unless he starts signing the checks along with Lauren Schuler Donnor.
