Ryan Reynolds Says Deadpool Won't Be Like Green Lantern

Ryan Reynolds has spoken out about the upcoming Deadpool movie, and has said that it will not take the path that Green Lantern has. Reynold's then admitted that a major part of Green Lantern's problem was the lack of a screenplay from day one.

Fortunately, Deadpool has a script that has been leaked online and embraced by fans, alongside some test footage. 

When we shot Green Lantern, nobody auditioning for the role of Green Lantern was given the opportunity to read the script, because the script didn’t exist. I’m not complaining about it — it was an opportunity of a lifetime, and if I were to go back and retrace my steps, I would probably do everything the exact same way.

We’ve had a [Deadpool] script for three years. The script got leaked, and people even loved that. That says a lot — if you can create a script around a comic-book character that is directly within the canon of the character and be embraced. That’s a huge step in the right direction. I’ve since learned that a lot of superhero movies don’t really have a fully functioning draft of the screenplay ready until they’re already well into shooting.

Deadpool will be directed by Tim Miller and Reynolds will be returning to play the role he first debuted in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The movie will begin filming in Vancouver next month. For now, though, you can see some test footage below.
