Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds has revealed 'Deadpool' will be made in a way that "the most critical of fanboys could embrace"

Ryan Reynolds says 'Deadpool' will be made in a way that "the most critical of fanboys could embrace".

The much-anticipated sci-fi movie has been 11 years in the making - having encountered various obstacles along the way - and Reynolds says it won't disappoint fans of the Marvel character.

He told ShortList magazine: "I'm incredibly happy about it, we've got a director that understands that world, and writers with a lavish devotion to the canon of that character.

"That's the most important aspect: it's made in a way the most critical of fanboys could embrace. Well, that's the hope."

This comes shortly after Reynolds said 'Deadpool' will be the "movie we want to make".

He said: "It's been a long time, but it's happened in the right way and that's all that matters.

"We don't have the kind of money that most superhero movies do, but that's great, actually. Necessity is the mother of invention, and that's why we get to make the movie we want to make."

What's more, the actor - who starred in the 'Green Lantern' movie in 2011 - said he isn't feeling any more pressure to make 'Deadpool' a success.

He added: "You gotta have faith in the people you're working with, and have faith in the prep, and that's all I'm doing. On this one, the prep's been 11 years. You'd like to think you're putting your best foot forward, but we'll see."

Cynical crook Wade Wilson (Reynolds) undergoes an experimental procedure to transform him into a superhero, but emerges as the scarred and revenge-bent Deadpool. The emphasis on knowing humour is a bit obnoxious but it's a lot of fun, and Reynolds, with his likeability and swagger, was born to play the title role.
