Ryan Reynolds: Deadpool won't be a 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."
