Ryan Reynolds voices Pikachu, the popular Pokémon character in Detective Pikachu, which notched a record of its own: Biggest video game adaption opening. The previous record-holder was the Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider from 2001, which opened with 47 million dollars.
Ryan Reynolds plays the titular role of Pikachu via motion-capture and voice in Pokemon: Detective Pikachu. He was asked by MTV in an interview about who he thinks would win in a fight between Deadpool and Pikachu.
There have been anime series and films based on the characters of Pokémon, but Pokémon Detective Pikachu is the first live-action film being made on the video game. Directed by Rob Letterman, Pokémon Detective Pikachu releases in May 2019.
Ryan Reynolds has said that Deadpool writers are looking to shake things up with the sequel. The actor is currently promoting Deadpool 2 in China. A re-cut, PG-13 version of the 2018 film would hit Chinese screens on Friday.
Ryan Reynolds is shooting for an all-new Deadpool movie, but it is not Deadpool 3. Rather it is the PG-13 version (as opposed to being R-Rated as both Deadpool 2 movies have been) of Deadpool 2 and he is filming new scenes.
Directed by Patrick Hughes, the much-awaited action comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard stars Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L Jackson, Gary Oldman and Salma Hayek. With its stellar cast and interesting premise, the film promises to be an exuberant affair. Ryan Reynolds will be seen as protection agent who is tasked with protecting the life of a notorious hitman (Samuel L Jackson), and safely escort him to International Court of Justice in The Hague in Netherlands.
