Ryan Reynolds - Ryan Reynolds' 'risky' Deadpool movie

Ryan Reynolds' long-planned 'Deadpool' movie is ''risky''.

The actor has tried to get the comic book movie - based on the popular Marvel character - off the ground since playing the part in 2009's 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', but admits it's been hard because the film's proposed self-conscious plotline would deviate hugely from past superhero films.

He said: ''I know the character so well, but more than that, I know how to do it. I've had only a few projects where I've had that kind of clarity.

''The character knows he's a comic book character, he knows he's in a film, he knows who the executives are at the studio making the movie. In the current iteration of the script, Deadpool is aware of the 'Wolverine' movie. He doesn't say anything disparaging about it, but he does at one point play with the Deadpool action figure with some curiosity.''

Given the film's narrative, Reynolds concedes it's only natural for film studios and Marvel to be apprehensive about the movie.

He added to Total Film magazine: ''It's risky for everybody involved. It's not as commercial as they would like it to be. It's a property that is excessively popular and successful just as a comic property. So you certainly don't want to mess that up. And if you're a studio, you certainly don't want to put something out there that you can't get back.''
