It shouldn’t come as too much of a shock to reveal that out of the various superhero films he has worked on, Ryan Reynold enjoyed the Deadpool films the most. From pre-production to final release, Deadpool was an 11-year journey for Reynolds and the filmmakers. So it makes sense that it was something he was very attached to. In an interview with GQ, the actor was even confirmed by the success of the film.
However, Reynolds wasn’t quite so jubilant when he had to play the “smaller” Wade in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Aside from being a smartass with swords, this version of Wade is very different from the one in the comics and other films — and not necessarily in a good way. That’s why the Deadpool movies were so keen to mock that Wade in both the first movie and the sequel, in which Wade travels back in time to shoot his less-loved self in the head. In the GQ interview, Reynolds described this smaller Wade as “leaving all canon and sanity, and he became this Deadpool abomination.”
