Ryan Reynolds IS…DETECTIVE PIKACHU?!

Hollywood Reporter:

Ryan Reynolds is going to catch ’em all.

The Deadpool star has signed on to star in Legendary’s live-action Pokémon movie, THR has learned.

I’m not sure if this necessarily the next big franchise role most expected for Ryan Reynolds after Deadpool, but it beats being dragged in for a Green Lantern sequel.

What makes this most weird, is this version of Pikachu – besides wearing a hat and apparently being a detective, as the title indicates – he talks.  And we learned earlier this year that people don’t really care for that.

What do you think?
