Anyone who's seen Sunshine knows Evans can do drama. Something tells me he can manage the dramatic range of Captain freakin' America. Look good in tight clothing, give it some Bill Pullman for the rousing speeches, done.

You don't seem to be able to differentiate the actor and the character he plays. The actor played a cocky douche very well.

The problem is Ryan Reynolds only seems to play cocky douches.

No?

Definitely Maybe, he played a normal dad. In Nine he was anything but a cocky douche.

He does play the cocky thing really well (Blade Trinity) and the cocky douche really well (Wolverine). Why is it people always put the douche in it? Just makes you seem like someone who's a social introvert and has never known people with a fast mouth, but that weren't douches.

Now someone who is witty is a douche?

I wrote this when he was cast as Deadpool, but it seems like it will continue to work:

Ryan Reynolds cast as sarcastic super hero

Los Angeles, CA - In a surprise move, some Hollywood studio cast the affable Ryan Reynolds as the main character in their latest super hero film where a costumed vigilante fights justice with a sardonic wit.

"We really had to search long and hard for a handsome actor with chiseled good looks that brought earnest smug to the character," said the studio executive, "And we were astounded to see this test footage with [Ryan] Reynolds acting cocky and sarcastic - it was range we never knew he had."

Reynolds, best known for his roles in The Amityville Horror and The Nines, has struggled against being typecasted as a serious, brooding actor. The above average director, who will helm this light action-adventure picture - in what is sure to be as stretch for him - had initial reservations about casting Reynolds.

"See, this guy isn't like all the other super heroes," said the director, "He's a real cheeky f-----. And I wasn't sure [Ryan] was capable of biting sarcasm and deadpan delivery, but he knocked it out of the ballpark."

The fan community, which had been campaigning Reynolds for the role since it was leaked that a script was being written, was notably excited.

"Ryan Reynolds is perfect for this character," wrote one Internet fan on his message board, "He perfectly captures the emotional depth that this character needs - also he is muscular and really sarcastic."

Reynolds will reportedly get into shape for the role by making cutting and derisive remarks in high pressure situations, although friends close to the actor say that it will be revealed later on that he has a heart of gold.

Wes Craven was just about openly hostile bout the Wienstiens a few years back due to that whole Cursed fiasco.  They had to have offered him the biggest payday of his career to get him back.  I'm really, really, really surprised this movie is happening at all.

I'm indifferent at this point. Don't really care either way. I just don't really see this having any kind of mass appeal or real traction. It's overt goofiness is going to scare away a lot of folks right off the bat. I can't imagine anyone over the age of 30 watching that teaser and thinking it doesn't look completely ridiculous.

I'd love to be around the set where he tries to relate to his young actors by recounting tales from the shoot of 'The Guyver 2'.

He's great in interviews, and obviously owner of a great set of pipes, but he hasn't actually written any movies that weren't an adaptation.  But what the hell, its not like he can make a worse werewolf movie then what's already out there, so more power to him.

He didn't even really write X-Men. He transcribed it. X-Men had so many writers they had him sit on the set and transcribe it so FOX only had to give him credit for it.

No, that's Sukiyaki Western Django, which feature horrid English dialogue from Korean actors. And Quentin Tarantino.

This is the movie I'm talking about:

If it makes it to Japan, that'd be awesome. She's still a little young to sit through a whole movie in a theater right now (2yrs, 5 months) so we had to pass on Princess and the Frog. But maybe by next year.
