When a movie gets a lower budget compared to other movies in its genre, the first thing people wonder is what they will have to cut out of the film. That might be even more prevalent in the superhero genre. If a Deadpool movie can’t get the money that a Wolverine movie gets, will it look cheaper?
Ryan Reynolds says the the opposite might be true when it comes to Deadpool.
Reynolds said in a recent interview that the lower budget is actually a good thing. Thanks to a lower budget, the movie won’t have to make as much to make its money back, so the studio and filmmakers can try different things and take some chances a $100 million movie wouldn’t dare try.
That is huge when it comes to a character as violent, quirky and iconic as Deadpool.
Director Tim Miller is an experienced effects artist, so that will help them pull off what they need effects-wise without breaking the bank. Then, thanks to the lower budget, they can do the things that you can’t do in a traditional superhero movie. Reynolds even hinted at an R-rating, which he is hoping for but likely won’t happen.
Could this be the superhero movie that finally gets Ryan Reynolds a hit after the disappointments of Blade Trinity, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Green Lantern? Here is hoping. Check out his interview below.
