Ryan Reynolds is currently hot on the publicity trail for his forthcoming appearance inDeadpool, but has confirmed to the Huffington Post that once he’s done with the Merc with the mouth, he’ll be hanging up the spandex for good…
Having played Green Lantern in the ill-fated DC adaptation, along with appearances in comic-book movies Blade: Trinity and X-Men Origins, Reynolds is no stranger to the superhero genre. However, once Deadpool and any potential sequels are in the can, he’ll be moving on to pastures new.
“I have no desire to play any other superheroes after this,” says Reynolds. “Hopefully we’ll get to do Deadpool again. Given the fact that it’s rated R, the fans have to show their support for it, and they have to come out and make it worthwhile for the studio to make another one, but that’s it for me. I’ve punched that superhero card a few times now, and that’s enough.”
Lets hope Deadpool is enough of a success to wring a couple of sequels out of him. Directed by Tim Miller and co starring Morena Baccarin and Ed Skrein, the film will open in the UK on 5 February 2016 and the US a week later.
