Ryan Reynolds is one of several actors who have portrayed more than one superhero in their career: Green Lantern and Deadpool. And with the new Deadpool movie coming out in 2016, Reynolds was asked to compare and contrast the costumes of his two heroes while on a press junket for his current film Self/Less. As for which one he enjoyed most? It's easy, Reynolds said.
"Oh, Deadpool you can't even compare. I mean, it’s brutal doing a film where you’re wearing a motion capture suit for the whole time. Just as an actor it’s brutal," Reynolds told ScreenRant, referring to the fact that his costume for 2011's Green Lantern was completely CGI.
"But like – a lot of people relate to [Deadpool] because he has cancer. So we worked a lot with the Make a Wish Foundation and those kids would come on set, and I loved hosting them. Because when I’d walk out in that suit, you’d watch their minds explode, and that felt amazing," Reynolds revealed. "And that’s something I never really got to experience before because there was no Green Lantern suit. I didn’t even get to see the Green Lantern suit until the first trailer. I never even knew what it looked like. So [Deadpool] was a pretty great experience. I love having the tactile, real deal, all the time."
Deadpool opens in theatres February 12, 2016.
