Ryans Reynolds Talks Fantastic Four Flop & the Need for Deadpool!
September 23, 2015 By Alex Eyre
Deadpool aka Ryan Reynolds has been expressing his concern about the perception of the Fanatic Four actors to GQ following the films “unsurprising flop”, mainly Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan.
“But I’m more frustrated about the Michael B. Jordan aspect than Miles Teller. You know, Miles Teller’s going to recover. Miles Teller’s going to go on to do amazing things, you know. It’s important that Michael B. Jordan continues to go on and do amazing things.”
“I know it’s not easy for a black actor. It’s not easy for a female actor. It’s not easy for a lot of people that are… That entire cast is amazingly talented. And I wouldn’t wish that on anybody. I mean, I know what that feels like. It doesn’t feel good. And it also is difficult, because you don’t feel like you can control that outcome. You know, as much as you want to. You can’t really.”
Fantastic Four flopping may have flopped but don’t worry, Reynolds feels Deadpool is coming out at the right time and has the fan base to make it huge!
“It’s a genre. There are good horror movies and bad horror movies. There are good comedies and bad comedies. Think of it like that. Think of it less about just superheroes. I do believe that they explore similar archetypes a lot, so I think that notion can be somewhat fatiguing, maybe. I think one of the reasons that Deadpool has gained a lot of momentum isn’t just that it’s funny or isn’t just that it’s rated R. The meta aspect is very important. So I think Deadpool’s coming along at the right time, because it’s also speaking to that generation and that group of people that have seen them all, seen all these comic-book films and enjoyed them all too varying degrees of success. But I think it’s speaking to them as though the guy in that red suit is one of them, to some degree.”
