As 20th Century Fox gears up to go into production on Deadpool ahead of its release next February, Ryan Reynolds has been speaking to MTV about reprising the role of Wade Wilson, and touching upon the budget of the Merc with the Mouth’s solo movie.
“It’s been a long time, but it’s happened in the right way and that’s all that matters. We don’t have the kind of money that most superhero movies do, but that’s great, actually. Necessity is the mother of invention, and that’s why we get to make the movie we want to make.”
Reynolds was then asked if he felt any pressure given the mixed reception and poor box office performance of his last superhero outing in 2011’s Green Lantern:
“No, no, no, of course not. You gotta have faith in the people you’re working with, and have faith in the prep, and that’s all I’m doing. On this one, the prep’s been 11 years. You’d like to think you’re putting your best foot forward, but we’ll see.”
