Well that's... something. I mean, I guess it's better than fans who originally wanted Danny Devito to get the part (or is it?), but either way, I can't say that I'm overly excited for a Detective Pikachu movie. Hopefully it proves me wrong when we finally get it, though!

So since we know that Ryan Reynolds will be playing himself, like he does in all of his movies, what does everybody think about the idea of Reynold-chu? I expect Reynold-chu to be sarcastic, have plenty of monologues, and to fill almost every line with Innuendos.
Don't get me wrong, I like Ryan Reynolds quite a bit, but it doesn't change the fact that when he acts, he's not playing another character, he's just playing a slightly exaggerated version of himself.

The thing I don't quite understand, is Detective Pikachu a pokemon that has always been able to coherently speak in english (I assume like Meowth), because I have never heard of Detective Pikachu until I started hearing rumors about this movie months ago.

"Somewhere off in a distant world, an island exists, where the ocean only meets the sand, where the weather is always warm. An adventure begins, traveling from the vast lands into the deep seas, chasing into the heart of the tropics, where the plants are vibrant and the beasts are fantastic. We will find each other there, chasing the fleeting dreams of a land full of beauty and potential."

No, it's not. The idea for Devito to play Detective Pikachu may have been seen as a meme of sorts due to stuff like the online petitions for it, but make no mistake, it was premised on the fact that DeVito's voice and mannerisms are an uncannily perfect match for the role.

Reynolds might do a good or even great job, but when you consider that the entire point of hiring a celebrity actor for a voice role to make people interested in seeing that person be that character, Devito would have garnered so much more interest.

Demo coming August 20!

It is based on the game which was apparently really popular in Japan and wasn't very kid friendly if I recall.

I love him being Pikachu. He is sarcastic and I don't care if he is just being himself or not. Acting is acting. He is probably the perfect part for the movie.

But now, when I think of Pikachu, I am going to be thinking of Deadpool.

As for Danny Devito, he didn't know what pokemon was. So i don't know if he would be a good choice or not. Ryan probably grew up like most of us, playing the games. He may be 41, but that means he was 19 or 20 when pokemon started, meaning he probably has more understanding of the pokemon world.
