- Watch out Ryan Reynolds. Chris Hemsworth wants to play Deadpool.
- While celebrating his 35th birthday, the Thor actor says one of his sons slammed his face into „flaming candles.“
- It’s all good though. He says he’d now be down to play Deadpool, whose body is covered in scars.
- Ryan Reynolds said he’s down after joking that he’d be taking over the role of Thor. He joked that his daughter stabbed one of his eyes out so he could play the God of Thunder.
- Thor lost his right eye in „Thor: Ragnarok.“
- While fans may not want to see the two trade roles, they would like to see a Thor/Deapool crossover.
- Disney recently purchased 20th Century Fox, which owns the rights to Deadpool along with more Marvel characters.
If Ryan Reynolds ever wants to stop playing Deadpool, Chris Hemsworth says he wouldn’t mind stepping into the role.
While celebrating his 35th birthday, Hemsworth told his fans he got an extra surprise from one of his sons that inspired the hero swap.
As he was getting ready to blow out his birthday candles next to his wife, actress Elsa Pataky, the Thor actor says his son „viciously attacked“ him from behind, slamming his face into the lit candles.
„Immediately after this shot was taken my son viciously attacked me from behind (due to his ninja training) and slammed my face into the flaming candles , I’ll now be playing Deadpool if @vancityreynolds pulls the pin #bestbirthdayever @elsapatakyconfidential,“ Hemsworth shared on Instagram.
If you’re familiar with Ryan Reynolds‘ foul-mouthed Marvel character, Deadpool’s face and body are covered in massive scaring as a result of an experiment gone wrong to try and cure his cancer.
It seemed like Reynolds was into Hemsworth’s idea after recent hijinks with his own daughter. The Deadpool actor took to Twitter to tell him he was down, as long as he could now take over as the mighty Thor.
Weird. My daughter JUST stabbed me in the right eye. (She’s not a ninja, but she IS a bit of a dick) Point is, We can finally trade roles… (Happy Birthday Bubba!) https://t.co/TsDLuTACaO

„Weird. My daughter JUST stabbed me in the right eye. (She’s not a ninja, but she IS a bit of a d–k) Point is, We can finally trade roles… (Happy Birthday Bubba!),“ Reynolds wrote on Twitter.
Reynolds is referencing Thor’s latest look in „Thor: Ragnarok“ and „Avengers: Infinity War.“ The God of Thunder famously lost his right eye in 2017’s „Ragnarok“ to his vengeful sister, Hela.
Thought fans weren’t immediately sold on the two swapping roles, they were very much into the idea of a Thor and Deadpool crossover.

Deadpool/Thor crossover, please. Or a Thorpool, yes, sounds good. @MarvelStudios when the merger is completed, MAKE. IT. HAPPEN.

And just in case they did swap roles:

Thorpool isn’t completely out of the realm of possibility.
Comic fans will know there was a 1997 comic issue where Deadpool dressed up like Thor. Deadpool wielded the Thor’s hammer in Deadpool #37 when Loki made a fake hammer just for him.
With Disney’s recent purchase of 20th Century Fox, the studio will have the rights to the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and the Merc with a Mouth himself. Suddenly, a Deadpool/Thor crossover doesn’t seem so far out of reach.
