For some reason, Ryan Reynolds appearing to me in his performances as if he's self-aware and assumedly charming. He never is immersed in a situation and that removes all the stakes.
I bet also he's a great dude off screen, but onscreen little bit awkward for all this million dollar movies
So.. pretty much Chris Pratt? I didn't know either name until GotG and Green Lantern respectively brought out nerd-rage: "Oh what the fuck, the Van Wilder/Parks and Recreation guy's going to play Green Lantern/Starlord?" Like, who would you rather have? Will Smith and Brad Pitt? I think it's cool that they're going to the Rudds, and Pratts and Reynoldses, who are better known for their comic work. After all, they're called comic book movies..
I like comic actors that can act- no problem with Paul Rudd, Chris Pratt. Reynolds acts like a Wayans acts
Ah.. I actually don't think I've seen Reynolds act in anything besides a bit of Van Wilder (I've probably seen him in stuff and don't know it) but that's kind of a good thing for Deadpool, since 4th Wall Breaking and self-awareness is a big part of his character in the comics, which pisses off Wolverine who tells him to stay in character, etc. Deadpool really don't give a shit.
One thing you can say about him as regards his suitability for the Deadpool role:
He fucking LOVES Deadpool. He's probably read every comic in which the character has ever made an appearance, wouldn't surprise me.
Now, admittedly, one can make a valid point as to overt fanboyism harming one's ability to portray a character effectively, but let's see how well it works compared to the more common 'I don't know or care about this character in the slightest' connection of actors to characters.

Didn't Nicolas Cage make the same fanboy claims about Ghost Rider?
Michael Jackson loves Spiderman and Nic Cage loves Superman- I bet that could make things even worse (if they are just using career pull to get a role they aren't fit for). I mean, especially since they tried him as Deadpool once and in a comic-toned Marvel movie before.
Deadpool could be done in a lot of way given he's mostly in a mask- voice actor/ different unmasked actor etc. Jackie-Chan esque physical comedy fights. Venture Brothers and Archer have semi-similar mixes of action/selfawareness/comedy.

Yay Deadpool! The movie comes out on my birthday so it better not suck. If the trailer's any indication, I don't think it will.

I am cautiously optimistic.
If they just stick with how the video game did it (which I never played but watched in a cutscene edit) I think it'll be just fine. But, according to the trailer it might have a lot of origin story stuff, which the game didn't. It just assumed the audience kinda knew, or maybe they'd read up on if they didn't. I don't really like origin story stuff.

I think I said the same thing when the Watchmen trailer came out, and look how that turned out....
FWIW I thought the extended cut of Watchmen was about as good a live-action adaptation of the graphic novel as we could get.

How does he breathe in that mask? It looks to be made of vinyl.
