Actor Walker Scobell plays a young Ryan Reynolds in The Adam Project. Now, BossLogic is considering the actor joining Deadpool 3 as a young anti-hero.
Digital artist BossLogic creates fan art poster imagining if The Adam Project actor Walker Scobell was set to join the cast of Dead Pool 3.
Scobell stars alongside Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds in The Adam Project on Netflix. In the film, Reynolds portrays time-traveling Adam Reed to the year 2050, while Scobell plays his 12-year-old. The film sees the two interact with nearly identical personalities while dealing with their past and future, battling futuristic soldiers, engaging in dogfights and more. To further this dynamic between the two actors in another movie, BossLogic’s artwork posted to fan Twitter casts Scobell as Kidpool for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Kidpool is a younger variant of Wade Wilson created by Victor Gischler and Whilce Portacio in 2010, first appearing in Prelude to Deadpool Corps #2. One similarity Kidpool shares with young Adam Reed – which BossLogic has highlighted in his artwork – is a weapon he wields. A joke and pop culture reference in The Adam Project is that young Adam refers to Adam’s 2050 Mag-Cyl weapon as a star wars lightsaber due to its similar design and functionality. In Kidpool’s early days, he obtains lightsaber-like dueling weapons from the Xavier Orphanage for Troubled Boys.
the dead Pool movies have had a big influence on The Adam Projectsince Scobell said he was watching dead Pool 2 repeatedly for two months in order to act like a young Reynolds. the dead Pool The actor commented on this, saying, “He knows every word of the movie. We’d be sitting on set, and he’d do everything, even like the show lines and stuff he’s not supposed to remember.” A behind-the-scenes video of The Adam Project features Reynolds listening to Scobell as he recites the opening monologue of Merc with a Mouth from Deadpool 2.
Reynolds will return for dead Pool 3with The Adam Project and free guy director Shawn Levy has signed on to direct. Whether or not Scobell will reunite with Reynolds and Levy for the film remains to be seen, especially since almost nothing about the film or its plot is known at this time, even to the actors of the previous films. Morena Baccarin and Zazie Beetz, who played Deadpool’s love interest Vanessa and Domino, respectively, both commented that they haven’t heard back yet.
However, BossLogic’s artwork imagines an outlandish adventure for Deadpool and Kidpool in the upcoming film, with references to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, free guy and more littered throughout the room. Dead Pool 3 doesn’t have a release date yet, but The Adam Project can be streamed now on Netflix.
