Supernaturals / The Boys star Jensen Ackles is a fan favorite and during a question panel about two weeks ago, fans had the chance to ask some questions about The Boys in particular and during this event he told, among other things, that he was offered the role of Deadpool in Fox 2016- film but turned it down because his ex-girlfriend is in it. This information has not been confirmed by either Fox, Disney or the director Tim Miller and many in the industry seem to be skeptical to say the least about this as Ryan Reynolds was involved from the start, worked on the script, produced Deadpool, played the lead role and financed part of the project.
“There was definitely a movie that I was very much in talks about. I wasn’t available, so the train just kind of stopped there. But, had I been available, I would’ve had to, you know, jump through the studio hoops and jump through the, you know, producer hoops and stuff. But I had a really good shot, and it’s a movie that I really, really like. It was probably a good thing because my ex-girlfriend was on there and so that probably would have been awkward, so it probably worked out for the best. I think that whole cast was amazing. I probably would’ve messed that up for a lot of people had I been a part of it, so probably best I didn’t ‘t. But that would’ve been cool.” Go!
What do you think about this? Was Jensen Ackles offered the role of Deadpool or is he mixing things up?
