Deadpool is a fictional anti-hero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.
The movie follows the life of Wade Wilson (played by Ryan Reynolds). His world comes crashing down when evil scientist Ajax performs a rogue experiment leaving him with accelerated healing powers and a disfigured appearance.
“I was banging the loudest drum for Deadpool. I wasn’t just trying to open it; I was trying to make a cultural phenomenon,” he said.
Reynolds also spoke about how he met his wife Blake Lively, with whom he shares two children.
“No, we were hanging out at this little restaurant in Tribeca that’s open really late, and this song came on and I was just like, “Want to dance?” No one was in there, so it was just totally empty. And it was just one of those moments where halfway through the dance, it was like, “Oh, I think I just crossed a line.” And then I walked her home. And, uh, you know, I don’t really need to go into what happened after that,’ he shared.
