Prolific voice actor Nolan North is nudging Marvel to make another Deadpool video game. The actor, who voiced Deadpool in Activision’s 2013 game, told Comic Book Movie that he wants the game to happen, and for Ryan Reynolds to have a cameo in it.
“I’m trying to get Marvel to do another Deadpool video game, and we could have Ryan come on and do a cameo in the video game,” North said.
Also in the interview, North said one of the producers, Craig Kyle, has remarked that Reynolds was a fan of North’s performance as the merc with a mouth in the video game.
“Craig Kyle, who was one of the producers, said that Ryan Reynolds was a long-time fan and actually praised what I did,” North said. “He really liked it, and I know he played the video game one time with Jacksepticeye and he had some high praise for me, and I started DM’ing with Ryan on Twitter, telling him, ‘You’ve made me cooler to my kids than I’ve ever been,’ and he’s a fan!”
Regarding the cameo, North joked on Twitter that he actually had someone else in mind. “I was actually hoping for the other Canadian, Ryan Gosling, and his dreamy blue eyes,” North said.
2013’s Deadpool was developed by Activision’s High Moon Studios, which would go on to support Bungie on the development of Destiny. After Bungie and Activision broke up, High Moon shifted back to contributing to the Call of Duty series.
The 2013 Deadpool game launched on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, before coming to PS4 and Xbox One in 2015.
GameSpot’s Deadpool review scored the game a 5.5/10. “Deadpool tries to hide its many faults behind the protagonist’s buoyant personality, but it doesn’t take long for the bigger problems to surface,” reviewer Tom McShea said.
The Deadpool movie series, meanwhile, has seemingly stalled following Disney’s acquisition of the property. The latest we heard is that Deadpool 3 is unlikely to happen anytime soon.
