Just a few days ago, a footage with Ryan Reynolds in it was leaked. The footage revealed him casted with the role of Merc With a Mouth. It was quickly replaced with another video, but this time, the latter offered a much higher resolution. Unfortunately though, the footage was pulled of just as quickly from its YouTube link.
For those who were able to catch a glimpse of Reynolds on the video, some of you may be thinking that he?s not the best actor for the role. However, you should still give him some credit, since he?s not really that bad at all. In fact, many believe that, as long as the role is right for him, the actor can play the character pretty well. This brings us to the question: what role is right for him? With that question being raised, plus the recently uploaded and removed video, it seems that Deadpool is the answer.
In the video, Reynolds depiction of the character seems spot on. As Merc With a Mouth, Reynolds was seen attacking an SUV on a freeway packed with thugs. In addition, the footage was also rife with dopey jokes and, in general, some sort of sense of humor that the actor was able to deliver as perfectly as anyone could hope for.
Unfortunately, many observers believe that the video was derived from the Deadpool film, which has been in the works for a very long time now. The actor himself is the film?s star. The Deadpool movie we are referring to is the same one that was announced almost five years ago, just after the X-Men Origins was launched.
We?re not saying that fans out there should look forward to it with excitement. Just in case you do though, set realistic expectations. Even Mr. Reynolds himself said that the film is still under development, but he guaranteed that this?will still be shown in theaters.
