    Not the same as the Rock but I can live with that

  • Exy

    I still think it should have been Patrick Warburton.

    • SpectralDynamite

      I can definitely see him doing it, too.

    • Billy Bob Throrton

      He’s actually funny tho,we can’t F*cking have that now,can we? they’d probably go with Seth Rogen or James Franco next

      • Seth Rogen is hilarious. He would make a great detective pikachu. He was great as the alien in Paul

        • MagcargoMan

          Dude Oddish lmao.

  • Coonfoot

    My condolences to everyone who wanted Danny DeVito.

  • Exposer

    Its time for the Poke-f&$king-puffs.

  • James Fox

    Why Deadpool of all people?

    • he’s not deadpool he’s green lantern

      • JasonBall

        Which means he should play Gatsby

        • that’s Dicaprio

          • JasonBall

            It’s a joke that Reynolds should play Gatsby because he’s Green Lantern and Deadpool. If you’ve read the Gatsby book or seen the movie(s) you’d get it.

          • i read the book and saw the old movie with robert redford in english class
            it was terrible
            i still don’t get the joke

          • JasonBall

            Yeah it’s a slow book.

            It’s because (spoilers) he dies in a pool, and is obsessed with the green light he can view across the bay at his crush’s house. Green lantern and dead pool.

          • wow thats dumb

          • JasonBall

            It’s hilarious

      • Roto Prime

        He’s not green Lantern, he’s Blade comic relief…..

        • ToonAddict1

          aka Hannibal King.

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Well dammit now I have to watch the damn movie! RYAN REYNOLDS! ❤️❤️❤️ Sooo glad we don’t get that ugly Danny Devito, when there are hundreds of other over-qualified actors do it better

    • Carlos

      You had me until you started talking crap on Danny Devito.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        I know I could’ve went further, but then I have people such as yourself with your sensibilities.

    • Roto Prime

      Danny Devito scares me >..<

      • Princess_Eevee9

        I have yet to see anything he’s in that warrants giving him any serious acting job.

        • Roto Prime

          I have not seen anything, but got super scared when word on the net was he might be playing Pikachu….I’m so scared of Penguin I still get random nightmares of HIM…. *shiver*

          • Roto Prime


    • Dunnington

      First of all, Danny Devito isn’t ugly.
      Second, it’s not like he would be in it? He would be the voice of Pikachu.
      Third, actually I wish it was a live action Danny Devito in a Pikachu costume. That would be the best thing to ever happen to the silver screen.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        Thank Arceus your Trubbish tastes are nowhere near Hollywood to already make what is a Garbordor quality movie.

        • MagcargoMan

          He’d be perfect for a Garbordor movie though; he’s the Trash Man!

          • Dunnington

            I can’t upvote this enough. He certainly knows how to battle:

    • Cesar Miyamoto

      After being a fan and rewatching Its always Sunny , i really want Danny Devito as Pikachu, ohh well, another dream that didnt come true.
      I like Ryan Reynolds but i thing it could be overexposed with Deadpool coming soon.

  • awng782
  • Aiddon

    So. Many. MEMES

  • Jack Red

    I do actually wonder how Ryan Reyonolds will handle portraying Pikachu. He did great as Deadpool from what I’ve seen in previews and the test footage. Granted though, Deadpool was a character that he loved ever since he seen the comics. I hope he’ll give it his all as Detective Pikachu, as well as try to respect the Pokemon lore as much as he’s able to with the director’s okay.

  • Snackster1001

    I’m sorry…..WHAT?! Deadpool and pokemon is not something I expected to ever happen

    • Carlos

      It’s not like they’re mashing the two together…

      • Snackster1001

        It’s still a weird casting choice

        • Carlos

          I think he’ll be fine. Just have to wait and see.

    • JasonBall

      It isn’t

    • Tlink7

      You do realise he’s not actually Deadpool right? He’s an actor? 😛

  • SpectralDynamite


  • Billy Bob Throrton

    “Deadpool,Pikachu,they’re pretty much the same,right?” – a real life idiot earlier today

  • Amethyst Gaze

    Oh wow Deadpool

  • TDude73

    Holy Deadpool! Ryan Reynolds playing the voice of Detective Pikachu?! Thanks to The Pokemon Company, Universal Pictures, and Legendary!

  • Justmadeanaccount2

    Why is this big forehead man ruining my childhood? Leave Pikachu alone. Pikachu is supposed to say “Pika Pika” with a cute Japanese female voice, not do corny quips and one liners!

    • Carlos

      Unless you were born within the last couple years I don’t see how he’s ruining your childhood. You do know that Detectives Pikachu speaks, right?

    • Coonfoot

      This ain’t yo’ daddy’s Pikachu! It’s DETECTIVE Pikachu, the hard-boiled Gravity-Falls-creator-written gumshoe rodent hero of whatever town he lives in!

  • Zeebor

    Deadpool is fine, but he’s not THE TRASH MAN!

  • Roto Prime

    OK, NOW I’M EXCITED!!!!!

  • Wowwwww. I did not see this coming. Okay!? I feel it. Yeah, I feel it! I still am hecka nervous and weird about this movie, but the cast is increasingly piquing my interest.

  • Blanco8x8

    Should’ve been Seth MacFarlane…

    • TDude73

      Rated R.

  • Auragar

    Well that’s an interesting pick for Pikachu.

  • Max

    Cool. At least it’s not that fat little goblin monster everyone wanted.

  • Julio Ruduit

    Gaten matarazzo should be in this movie as Ash too

  • Melatelo

    Well this has certainly peaked my interest. Still kind of mind boggling to think this is an actual major Hollywood studio film

  • MagcargoMan

    RIP Danny Devito…

    Also I really don’t get why they’re making a movie for this spin-off before we even got a live-action regular Pokemon movie.

  • Tlink7

    Aw, I wanted Australian Pikachu ;-;
