It was the year 2004 when Ryan Reynolds first got associated with the Deadpool project. In 2009, five years later, Deadpool aka Wade Wilson appeared in his theatrical debut with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Wade Wilson did impress in the movie and alluded to the fact that the signing of Ryan Reynolds was a fantastic business decision. Ryan Reynolds ably portrayed the character of “Merc with a Mouth”; however, by the time the final act revealed itself to us, the writer had taken everything from the character, which had made him a fan favorite.
Hugh Jackman’s version of Wolverine skirmishes with a toned-down and bad version of Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson. The movie revealed to us that the character had been waxed out courtesy of a program that was exposed to us as the Weapon X program. Furthermore, Deadpool did have his dreadful weapon choked off.
And while it was Ryan Reynolds’ job to provide death stares, it was Scott Adkins (a martial artist who is also an action movie legend) who provided the film with necessary stunts.
It is possible that you might not have heard Adkins’s name ever in your life, but you will be surprised to know that he has made a massive name for himself as one of the action movie veterans, especially in the domain of Video on Demand. Those people who have seen his work and are, in fact, impressed with what he has achieved in the smaller scale films argue that he has been knocking on the doors of big opportunity for a long time now and had the industry truly cared about the merit, he would have even got his big gig after all this time.
However, all he has ever got from the industry are a handful of not-so-important roles in the films such as Bourne Ultimatum, Doctor Strange, and The Expendables 2.
Despite the virtuosity possessed by the 44-year-old actor, he has given a rather pessimistic interview to Max Cloud. In the interview, Adkins has openly talked about his film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He conceded that he now wishes that Deadpool aka Wade Wilson should have had traveled back to his past and must have killed him in the meta PC (meta post-credits) scene.
Scott Adkins made it clear in the interview that he was not at all pleased with the 2009 film.
He explained further about his experience of working in an X-Men film and said that he and Ryan Reynolds barely interacted on the set. He also said that when he got the opportunity, he was quite excited to play the part of Deadpool. However, when he flew down and saw the actual costume designed for the character in the film, Adkins was mighty disappointed, and he was sure that it would surely not work. And he was right. Nobody liked the Deadpool iteration in the 2009 film, and even more so now after we have got the better(and more accurate) version of it.
Adkins expressed his disappointment of not having been called up for Deadpool 2. He also funnily suggested the idea that Reynolds’ new version could have even gone back in time and killed his version in the X-Men Origins as he thinks that the failure of the latter is partly his fault.
Deadpool 3 is already in development, and some rumors are also suggesting that the actor might also appear sometime in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well.
