On a press tour for the upcoming film Life, Rhet Reese and Paul Wernick divulged some Deadpool 2 information. First Wernick spoke with ComingSoon about Cable and the 90’s Liefeld look may be played with in the film. Because as some fans will know, those characters tended to be overexaggerated in all masculine aspects.
“Well you’ll have to see! (laughs) I don’t wanna jinx stuff, but yeah, probably. We’ll have to talk about that.”
Rheese continued on that thought by speaking about the uber-masculinity of characters like Cable.
“Yeah! Ryan plays Deadpool with a hint of femininity, and I think that can be funny opposite a Cable who’s über-masculine. That’ll come into casting and performance and the character design and his wardrobe and things like that too. I think we’ll definitely play into that.”
They then spoke about some of the differences we’ll see for the sequel, mainly in regards to the director change.
“Every director brings their take to the material. Dave is a wonderful director with great ideas. He’s really an action savant. He really makes every other action director look like they’re from another era, from an era long ago. We’re really embracing that and writing to it,” said Wernick.
Sounds like some exciting stuff for the sequel, and I can’t wait to hear more about Deadpool 2 as it ramps up production.
