    Dunno about that,but I've heard about him wanting to be Flash and even the studio that holds the rights to Flash is wanting to cast him as Flash.

    I support the idea of him being Flash.



    I've always though Dane Cook would make a good Deadpool, honestly.

    They (whoever has the rights to the movie) have actually been waiting for Reynolds. Sounds like he's finally ready to get the show on the road.

    I wouldnt mind him playing Deadpool. He has the quick mouth to pull off Deadpools jokes.

    This has been going around for quite a while. I don't think it would work though. he sounds nothing like Demi Moore.

    This movie could go wrong in so many ways if it gets made. They could completely ignore the deeper aspects of his character (see the early issues of his own series) that made us feel for him. he's a very complicated character, and it wouldnt surprise me if they throw that aside and do the "merc with a mouth" thing and nothing else.

    I agree with "ugh please no" in reference to Cook

    Anyway, that'd certainly be an interesting role for him, and not one I'd picture him in, but if he's a fan and can do the character justice, o-fuckin-k then

    and Valkysas I agree completely, but hey, aren't all the comic films a big gamble?

    Deadpool is a great supporting character, but i dont know that he could fill out a whole film. he could have an awesome cameo in the wolverine movie though!

    The wise-cracking would suit him, but I can't see a pretty boy like Reynolds wearing a mask for a whole movie or even having the scarred face that Wade has. And I'd hate it if they changed the costume to remedy this idea.

    I was thinking the same, it's why I said I can't imagine him really doing the role, but you never know

    I support Reynold as Deadpool. If done right it'd be the sleeper hit of the year. It may be a gamble but imagine if they actually break down the 4th wall in the movie. Could be hilarious.

    He did have an image inducer for quite a while, since he used to be really ashamed of how he looked and referred to his mask (or a paper bag) as his face. I'd like to see a bit of that insecurity in the movie. image inducer could be used so he wouldnt have to have a mask on all the time.

    His comic series had a very long run, cable & deadpool is enjoying a strong readership, and thanks to the various internet image boards, deadpool is now one of the most popular marvel characters. he can carry a movie by himself, no problem.

    wonder if they'd use T-ray. that relationship would make for a good movie, I think.

    Nobody else has replied to this, but yes, I loved it so much I bought the DVDs when they came out here. Was awesome. I'd love to see more shows like it.
