19. Deadpool described himself as “Ryan Reynolds crossed with a shar-pei” in a 2004 comic book series, leading Reynolds to believe he was destined for the role.
When Ryan Reynolds was shooting for ‘Blade Trinity’in 2004, he was playing a character that was slightly similar to Wade Wilson and Deadpool. An executive from rival studio approached him and said:
“I saw a little piece of ‘Blade’, and, you know, you’re Wade Wilson, you’re Deadpool”.
Reynolds who was not into comics was unaware about Deadpool until he received few Deadpool comics from the executive guy. Ryan said:
So he sent me over all these comics, and I’m not a big comic-book guy, but I really gravitated toward Deadpool. I fell in love with Deadpool. The first issue I opened up, I’m not making this up, I was on he panel. Like in the comic, it said Deadpool was saying “I look like a cross between Ryan Reynolds and a shar-pei.” And I was thinking, Jesus, this is f***ing destiny.
So, Deadpool is the one that chose Ryan Reynalds to play… Deadpool.
