Ryan Reynolds Compares New Netflix Movie To ET & Back To The Future
Ryan Reynolds compares his upcoming movie, The Adam Project, to Spielbergian classic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) and Back to the Future (1985).
- The Adam Project debuts on Netflix on March 11th
Despite rumors flying that Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool appears in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” the actor say it’s not happening. Ryan Reynolds compares his upcoming movie, The Adam Project, to Spielbergian classic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) and Back to the Future (1985). Following the success of Netflix’s Red Notice, the 45-year-old actor has reunited with Free Guy director Shawn Levy for The Adam Project.
Fans have been speculating after some noticed what they believe is an image of Deadpool in a new poster for the upcoming “Doctor Strange” sequel.
As for the third “Deadpool,” Reynolds would only say, “It’s coming along.”
In “The Adam Project,” Reynolds stars as Adam, a fighter pilot in 2050 who befriends his 12-year-old self when he travels back in time to 2022. Newcomer Walker Scobell makes his big screen debut as the young Adam.
“I’m really not in the movie,” Ryan Reynolds said when asked by Variety about whether or not Deadpool would be in the movie during a recent screening of his upcoming Netflix film The Adam Project. “I’m promising, I’m not in the movie.”
During an interview with Variety before a special screening in West Hollywood, Reynolds compared The Adam Project to ’80s science fiction films. In particular, he talked about how his film harkens back to the early years of Steven Spielberg’s production company, Amblin Productions/Entertainment. This list of classics includes E.T., Back to the Future, and The Goonies. Read the full quote below:
We now find ourselves in the age of reboots, remakes, and adaptations—comic book or otherwise. Coming off of Free Guy, Reynolds and Levy were interested in finding another original story. In Variety’s interview, Reynolds went on to say, “we love IP, and we love superhero movies. We love all that stuff. But this was a special experience, and we really wanted to keep that train marching along.” The first impressions of The Adam Project imply the film adopts a winning formula and elevates it. Speaking of winning formulas, Reynolds will indeed don a red suit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While he insists Wade Wilson is not in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Deadpool 3 is currently in development at Marvel Studios.
Until then, The Adam Project debuts on Netflix on March 11th.
