Detective Pikachu Will Be Played by Ryan Reynolds

07 December 2017

The film will find Smith teaming up with Detective Pikachu and a sassy journalist (Newton) in order to find his father, who has been kidnapped. After being both Green Lantern and Deadpool, this makes sense.

Reynolds joins Justice Smith, who will be seen in the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom movie, as well as Kathryn Newton of Big Little Lies.

Before Reynolds was on an alleged shortlist for the role, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Mark Wahlberg, and Hugh Jackman were also considered for the titular Pikachu. There are even some weird mashups that have been floating around for years that are especially prescient.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Ryan Reynolds has been cast as Detective Pikachu himself.

Why Arshi will become the new captain
In the washroom area, Vikas swears that he supports Arshi, who has heard Akash say that they were against Arshi and her captaincy. When Arshi again questions Vikas about their friendship, Vikas shuts her up saying that her accusations were disgusting.

Reynolds work does not stop at the voice of Pikachu, however.

Ryan Reynolds has signed on to play Pikachu in a new live-action Pokemon movie. Filming is set to begin in London in January. Rob Letterman will direct Detective Pikachu, with Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch penning the script. It will also be produced through Universal Pictures, who will distribute the film in the USA and most worldwide markets. No release date is known at this time.

As the title suggests, Detective Pikachu isn't just pulling any ol' Pokemon property, which have traditionally focused on trainers who collect the cuddly, but powerful creatures called Pokemon to compete in battle tournaments.
