During a recent appearance, Thor: Ragnarok and Dredd actor Karl Urban stated that he would love to be in a Deadpool film.
During the appearance he told fans that he would love to be in a Deadpool film if anyone offered him a role in it. He was also eager to point out that Dredd did the R rated comic book film thing before it was cool:
Yes, I will. I’d love to be in a Deadpool movie. I’ve seen Julian Dennison [who’s from] New Zealand was in Deadpool 2. I love Deadpool and I certainly, when I watched the first one I saw that there were similarities, particularly in the opening sequence, that reminded me a lot of, and I think they drew some inspiration from, Dredd, at least cinematographically the way Dredd was shot. Sorry. Dredd was a little bit before it’s time in terms of being an “R” rated comic book movie. I thought Deadpool was fantastic and Ryan Reynolds is just a beast. Yeah. He did such a good job on that.
From the sound of things, Karl Urban wants a shot at the Merc with a Mouth.
Karl Urban is, of course, no stranger to comic book films. He first appeared in the 2010 Bruce Willis comic book film RED before starring in 2012’s Dredd. He also appeared as a supporting character in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok as Skurge. But from the look of things he wants at least one more comic book movie appearance before he is done with the genre.
