Fanboy Fix: Ryan Reynolds Updates 'Deadpool' and 'Justice League,' Plus J.J. Abrams Explains His Superman Movie

News of a Deadpool movie has been around for a few years now and it appears Fox doesn't seem to be in much of a hurry to get the stand-alone movie made. Starring Ryan Reynolds from 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the movie has a script written by Zombieland creators Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese and FX master Tim Miller attached to direct. So what's the hold-up?

Reynolds spoke on an Empire podcast while promoting his new movie The Croods and explained why it was taking such a long time to get the movie made.

"I love Deadpool and there is a script that's in development. But it's so, so far into the R-rated zone… it's nearly NC-17 world and I just don't know if the studio would ever risk their reputation doing it."

Reynolds adds that the Deadpool movie would address the character's appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

"In the current iteration of the script, it doesn't address Wolverine, though it does address Deadpool's appearance in Wolverine. Deadpool was not happy with Deadpool in Wolverine. He has sort of a WTF moment with that."

In the same interview, Reynolds also addressed the ongoing rumors of Warner Bros.' Justice League movie. Reynolds, who played Hal Jordan in the 2011 Green Lantern movie expressed little interest in reprising the character.

"I don't know, if you're going to do a comic book movie in that vein you really have to get them right. Joss Whedon is a guy that just nails it, Christopher Nolan as well. If they were going to do it like that, yeah it would be interesting to do. Working on Green Lantern I saw how difficult it is to make that concept palatable, and how sort of confused it can all be when you don't really know where you're going with it or you don't really know how to access that world that comic book fans have been accessing for decades and falling in love with. So at this point I have very little interest in joining that, as always a very good script and great director could turn that around."

J.J. Abrams is already in charge of the Star Trek and Star Wars franchises, but he could have been in charge of another major property had Warner Bros. decided to go with his treatment for Superman rather than Zack Snyder's.

Speaking with Empire, Abrams explained his take on Superman.

"The thing that I tried to emphasize in the story was that if the Kents found this boy, Kal-El, who had the power that he did, he would have most likely killed them both in short order, and the idea that these parents would see – if they were lucky to survive long enough – that they had to immediately begin teaching this kid to limit himself and to not be so fast, not be so strong, not be so powerful."

Abrams continues to say that the idea for his movie was "he became Superman because he realized he had to finally own his strength and what he'd always been."

The rest of the interview, mostly about Star Trek Into Darkness, can be found in the May 2013 issue of Empire.
