The Blade Trinity Co- Star revealed to fans that Marvel Studios honcho Avi Arad had just informed him that 20th Century Fox was interested in the big-screen version of Deadpool, indicating that New Line Cinema is now out of the picture.
"I would love to play that role," Reynolds said. "The merc with a mouth ... it's like that's the reason I stepped out of my mother, to play that role. So someday. Hopefully."
Reynolds also addressed questions about The Flash, which is set-up at Warner Brothers with Blade's David Goyer writing and directing.
"We had a meeting last night about it and he's writing it right now," Reynolds told fans. "If Warner Bros. decides to greenlight it, I will be playing the role. ... I'm up for the challenge [of getting into tip-top shape]."
