Ryan Reynolds, the man who plays our favorite Merc with a mouth, has been credited as a writer for the upcoming Fox film Deadpool 2. Reynolds joins Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick as the officially credited writers for the film, as they co-wrote this film along with the original Deadpool. The addition of the writing credit adds on to Reynolds’ Producer and Actor credits in the film and marks the first time in Reynolds’ career in which he has been credited as a writer.
This news shouldn’t come as a big surprise at all, as it is very well known the contributions Reynolds has made to the character and the film overall. Reynolds’ embodiment of the character is perfect, with the casting resembling that of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man. One thing is for sure though, if it weren’t for Reynolds and his touches on the character, the probability of a Deadpool film ever existing or being as good as it was is slim to none.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think Ryan Reynolds would have had a huge enough input/impact on the script to warrant a writing credit? Let us know over at @SuperBroMovies and in the comments below! –Kenneth Colon
