Thats a really great question. I dont know, I havent even thought about the possibility of doing anything else in that world. And I dont know if you even can, once you play something in the Marvel Universe, I dont know if you can come back and be someone else. Can you?

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.

Expressing his admiration for Ryan in the lead role, the New Zealand actor added: Sorry. Dredd was a little bit before its 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.
