Why did you want to be part of this movie?
I was a big comic book fan when I was a kid. I still collect graphic novels. Deadpool is a character I’d always thought was cool as fuck, a dynamic character. I was a fan of this before the movie, I would have been a fan of this even if I wasn’t in the movie, and I’m still a huge fan of it, maybe even more so because of my involvement.
How physically demanding did you find the shoot?
I have two huge fights in it, two fights I’m extremely proud of. One of them involves a lot of fire and the other was a long fight, a very technical fight, with wires and gimbals and lots of crazy stuff. they’re very different in their dynamic, the two fights. the hard work was all in the training, so when it came to shooting we had a great time – we had so much fun. I enjoyed the stuntwork on this movie more than any stuntwork I’ve ever done.
So you’ve played a supervillain – is there a superhero you’d like to play?
there’s a character called King Mob in The Invisibles, a grant Morrison character. I love King Mob. He’s an incredible character. But I’ve always wanted to play Panthro in ThunderCats… Nick Setchfield
