Deadpool played by Ryan Reynolds or Jim Carrey?

As most of us know we all want a Deadpool movie and I know some of us want Ryan Reynolds as the actor. However looking at Ryan Reynolds play as GL and some of his past movies I think he makes a better Flash. Also Ryan Reynolds has never made a movie where he has truly done well as the leading actor. Mr. Reynolds always seems shine with other talented actors around him, but this could be true for every actor. I still think the best actors however; don't need anyone.

Now who would possibly play Deadpool. With all the extreme craziness that Deadpool brings along in the Marvel Comics Deadpool is always seems to be a sincere man hiding drowning in the chaos that his mental state. Seeing Jim Carrey play in a bunch of comic movies plus his few serious ones including "The Majestic" I think Mr. Carrey would be awesome for the role. Jim would have to put on some muscle mass, but either way Deadpool has been shown on the leaner side of the hero physiques. I think Mr. Carrey could pull it off, be comical then rise out of the sea of chaos that is Deadpool for a moment of clarity before submerging back into Lunacy.

What do you think?

Ryan Reynolds has never performed well as a leading actor? My friend, you just proved that you don't watch Ryan Reynolds movies. Try Van Wilder for starters. Amityville Horror. Waiting.... Buried. He's a fantastic actor and actually cares about the character.

Ryan. Jim is too old and in rthe twilight of his career

#6 Posted by SupremeHyperion (1390 posts) - - Show Bio

neither, ryan is green lantern and should not be deadpool, jim is too old and not at all athletic enough. if they were smart they'd pick jason statham, badass and funny.

#7 Edited by _slim_ (13028 posts) - - Show Bio

Neither.

Reynolds shouldn't be GL either..

#8 Posted by SupremeHyperion (1390 posts) - - Show Bio

my thoughts exactly

#9 Posted by EdwardWindsor (14026 posts) - - Show Bio

Reynolds is the best currently available in hollywood Option right now. There are very actors about who fit the age humour and talent needed for the role

I am completely. I would be pretty disappointed if Jim Carry played deadpool. I think Ryan Reynalds could do a better job

#11 Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy (7118 posts) - - Show Bio

Def. not Carrey.

#12 Posted by Shivermanx (4 posts) - - Show Bio

Eh.. none of Ryan's movies really gripped me. Its not as if I want to go out and buy one.. *shrugs*.

#13 Posted by Mega_spidey01 (3078 posts) - - Show Bio

the only one he was only good in was smokin aces an ensemble cast. jason statham should play either taskmaster in a movie or ironfist.

#14 Posted by DeathpooltheT1000 (9503 posts) - - Show Bio

Just becuase i belvie this is throlling thread i will post the Duck Tale theme in a heavy metal version.

Also, if they recast they should go with Scott Adkins, i mean the guy is the reason why people belive Ryan Reynolds knows martial arts and is an underrated actor.

#15 Posted by Shivermanx (4 posts) - - Show Bio

Nah this would be a trolling thread if I thought PeeWee Herman should have played Deadpool instead of Ryan Reynolds.

#16 Posted by deadpoolchimichanga (20 posts) - - Show Bio

Ryan because he is fit and looks the part and he played Wade and was funny.

#17 Posted by Vance Astro (90727 posts) - - Show Bio

This isn't even a fair comparison.Jim Carrey doesn't even kind of fit, Deadpool.He's not funny but I assume the fact he's a comedian is why someone would assume he could play Deadpool, because Deadpool is SUPPOSED TO be funny but people need to remember Deadpool is also a mercenary..Jim Carrey playing a mercenary is laughable.I personally wouldn't pick either of them, if I was casting for a movie about Deadpool.

So you would cast Ryan Gosseling?

#19 Posted by umbrafeline (5300 posts) - - Show Bio

we all know that ryan reynolds couldnt act his way out of a paper bag, even on a good day. jim carrey on the other hand is funny as hell and can play serious roles if teh script calls for it. he was on IN LIVING COLOR for crying out loud.

winner: jim carrey

loser: ryan reynolds and people who think hes a good actor

#20 Posted by Rowen545 (378 posts) - - Show Bio

You know I had never thought of Carey for the role, but his style of humor would work really well. But I will agree with others and say that if this were 10 years ago or so this would have been a good choice. Reynolds comes across to me the same way Sean Bean does, a guy who really gets into the character he is playing and enjoys nerd culture. I think its Reynolds (still don't think GL was his fault, script was just awful).

Chris Kleine?

#23 Posted by Joygirl (15369 posts) - - Show Bio

Chris Klein is actually pretty cool but not for Deadpwah.

I would love Ryan to do it, but doing Green Lantern kind of made feel eh about him, I don't know.

Well the original casting choice was Ryan Gosseling, then they decide to use Ryan Reynolds, becuase they belive Reynolds was more famous.

Even when Gosseling is obvously a better actor and more of a main event guy that Ryan.

Drive is ahuge evidence of it.

Ryan Renalds most definitly, i'm a Jim Carry fan, but thats only because of his comedy movies. as far as an action movie goes hes too goofy...lol so yeah im going with Ryan here.

#31 Posted by UNIQUE69 (200 posts) - - Show Bio

The part about not using either of them? Or Jim Carrey being laughable as a mercenary?

About using either of them. I quite liked Ryan Reynolds' version of Wade.

I liked Ryan as Wade. The humor was fine, and he looked the part. With a good script, i think he'll do fine as Deadpool.

#37 Posted by big_blue_cheese (53 posts) - - Show Bio

Reynolds was a good Deadpool. He was funny, he's got the right look and build. I think he deserves another chance after they destroyed what Deadpool was in Wolverine. He can't be held accountable for that, he did a good job.

#38 Posted by InfamousFish (353 posts) - - Show Bio

Ryan Reynolds

Just as long Reynolds NEVER plays Green Lantern EVER again, I'm fine with him as Deadpool...

Ryan Rynalds. Jim Carry is too goofy.

#42 Posted by DeadpoolFan101 (24 posts) - - Show Bio

Jim Carrey would suit the humour of deadpool but he's gettin to old

#43 Posted by mewmdude77 (991 posts) - - Show Bio

Ryan Reynolds, as long as the Deadpool movie has nothing to do with the first Wolverine movie, and it is Rated R. Before he had his mouth sewn shut, he did a good job with Deadpool's humor, and his badassery.

#44 Posted by Metaphor (14 posts) - - Show Bio

I can't believe this is a serious question. If Jim Carrey played DP, I probably wouldn't even watch the movie.

#45 Edited by FullmetalChobit (218 posts) - - Show Bio

I think both of them would be dreadful as Deadpool. 
 
And if a film were to be made Warner Bros would probably base it on the abomination of 'Deadpool' who appeared at the end of X-Men: The Last Stand.  
 
I love Deadpool and because of this there should NEVER be a film made about him. Look how poorly Spider-Man was cast and he's one of the funniest and most sarcastic guys in comics, who was played by the most boring guy ever!! 
 
Just leave it.

That site said the same about Iron Fist and Dragon Ball Evolution 2.

@SupremeHyperion: I'd think Statham would be a better Wolverine. I'm tired of Hugh Jackman playing him for the past 11 years. HE CAN'T EVEN FIGHT!!! Sure, Statham doesn't have the hair, but whatever. Plus his voice is too deep to play Deadpool.

#49 Posted by ApeKindaBaked (104 posts) - - Show Bio

Also, WATCH GOON!!!!! Both Sean William Scott and Jay Baruchel play in it and seeing them side by side almost seems like they'd be naturals at playing Deadpool and Weasel.

#50 Posted by DeathpooltheT1000 (9503 posts) - - Show Bio

@ApeKindaBaked: One problem, Statham cant act and the guys i by far less of a bad ass that people belvies he is, he is a english poor man version of Chuck Norris.
