Ryan Reynolds Talks Secret ‘Deadpool’ Easter Eggs!
We chat to Deadpool himself at Comic Con about the secret jokes in the movie that fans will love.
Let's just say there are going to be serious treats for superhero fans when Deadpool hits cinemas in February 2016.
Chatting to MTV at San Diego Comic-Con in the video below, Mr Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds, says: "It occupies a space that no other film occupies - particualrly in the Marvel Universe or any of the DC Universe. It's also got this limitless potential because it's a character that is incredibly not only pop culture relevent but savvy. So to me, it feels like you're making not just a comic book movie but a bit of a historical record. You can capture the Zeitgeist as it is right now in each film."
Reynolds has already appeared before as the wise-cracking hero in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but the less said about that the better. So does the savviness he speaks of mean this new film will give a cheeky comment on the previous (lame) Deadpool?
"I'm not going to give anything away because this movie has more Easter Eggs than the friggin Easter bunny," teases Reynolds.
"It's very much a R-rated film... it kind of has to be rated R. I'm really proud of the studio actually because it's a big risk for those guys. But then it's kind of mitigated because they're not spending X-Men money on us!"
