Ryan Reynolds To Play Pikachu In Brand New Movie
Will he catch 'em all, though?
Ryan Reynolds may not be the first face you think of when you think 'Pokemon'.
But the Deadpool star has reportedly signed up to play Pikachu in the live-action Pokemon movie, The Hollywood Reporter says.
The movie, Detective Pikachu, will also star Justice Smith and Big Little Lies actress Kathryn Newton.
If you think it's a weird one, you're not alone...
Don't know what's crazier, the fact that Deadpool is playing Pikachu or the fact that THIS MOVIE IS STILL BEING MADE. https://t.co/kuNHwJXyOg— Win through your Actions, Never through Argument (@TASKvsTheWorld) December 6, 2017
Casting Ryan Reynolds as Detective Pikachu is a slap to the face to fans who wanted Danny DeVito as Pikachu pic.twitter.com/wPRQJSRkK9— Die Monster Die (@demifiendkane) December 7, 2017
Wait, Ryan Reynolds is going to PLAY Detective Pikachu? That makes no sense, Pikachu only says his own name.— Elizabeth Rogers (@e1izabethrogers) December 7, 2017
