Ryan Reynolds is knee-deep in filming and promoting, for that matter, his upcoming Deadpool in which, we all know, he plays the titular hero.
He's been busy giving interviews and releasing pics and whatnot on his social media accounts, as if to offset the lack of a marketing machine for Deadpool.
One of the issues Ryan Reynolds addressed in an interview with News.com.au about a week ago is precisely that: Deadpool is not precisely a low budget movie, but it's neither as subsidized as other X-Men movies have been.
Also, he talks Wolverine's cameo in Deadpool! So hit the jump to learn the latest about Deadpool straight from lead man Ryan Reynolds!
Ryan Reynolds hopes for a Wolverine cameo
When asked about the possibility of a cameo in Deadpool earlier this year, Hugh Jackman seemed opened to this idea and, actually, quite enthusiastic. He, however, didn't confirm.
What does Ryan Reynolds has to say about that?
That's his answer: "God I hope so, that would be really nice. I dunno, we'll see. It seems like he's open to it, but it's gonna be more of a scheduling issue than anything else".
So, the fact he mentions it's a "scheduling issue" rather than anything else, that's encouraging, right? Plus, to lock Hugh Jackman in for Deadpool - even for a mere cameo - would definitely, in my opinion, earn some extra audience for the movie.
Though Ryan Reynolds alone will bring a host of moviegoers to watch Deadpool once it arrives in theaters on February 12th, 2016 - that's what I think.
This is not the only issue he addresses. Further about his involvement in Deadpool below!
Deadpool budget and lead man's involvement
Asked about his involvement in the production, Ryan Reynolds put's it like this: "I'm intimately involved, only because this movie doesn't have the budget that those X-Men movies had; this is, comparatively speaking, a very small film".
Plus, "We have to make the most out of every dollar that we're putting on screen. So you get involved in all sorts of things that you would never have otherwise gotten involved in, right down to what colour the walls are at the back of the set".
The fact Ryan Reynolds has grown so fond of the movie despite the not-so-abundant budget is reflected by his attitude regarding his gain from Deadpool: will he be artistically or financially satisfied?
"Just artistically, if this goes according to plan I'll definitely feel like I've done enough. No, nothing to do with the bank balance".
So, there you have it: Ryan Reynolds seems really committed to Deadpool. No wonder the character suits him so well! Plus, his hoping for Wolverine's cameo is reassuring: he didn't deny it, which means chances are we'll get to see more of Hugh Jackman before his last act in Wolverine 3.
