Ryan Reynolds: Deadpool won't be a typical comic book movie

Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds has revealed 'Deadpool' won't be the typical comic book movie.

Ryan Reynolds says 'Deadpool' won't be the typical comic book movie.

The 38-year-old actor explained the much-anticipated movie will be shot on a small budget and has, therefore, told fans to expect something a little offbeat.

He remarked: "It's not like an X-Men movie where there's this gigantic budget. It's quite a small film. It's very difficult to weave that character into other comic movies. He knows he's in a comic book.

"If he met Wolverine, he'd greet him as Hugh Jackman. It's tough to create a meta-universe within another universe that doesn't have any of those components."

Meanwhile, Ryan - who's married to actress Blake Lively, with whom he has a four-month-old daughter - confessed he's currently enjoying an "obscenely wonderful life" as he gets to spend so much time with his family while he films in Vancouver, Canada.

He told The Independent newspaper: "With family, you stay together - so we're all going. We're excited, though - it's just part of the adventure.

"When you're a working actor and you're able to pull in a pay cheque doing something you love, you're a success story.

"I know that I have an obscenely wonderful life because of this business - I'm able to do something that I love."
