Ryan Reynolds as talking Pikachu?...In the words of Green Lantern, "I know, right?"

(Even if we are getting a Detective Pikachu movie for Nintendo corporate-marketing value, I still suspect the flood of "Hollywood names" we've been hearing considered is deliberate snapped-tether Internet-news prank, from assorted cheap-gag wags giggling over the fact that we're getting a Pokemon Movie at all.
And if someone happened to be a Deadpool fan, that doesn't help suspicions any.)

I'm still unsure about seeing this...

But with him as Detective Pikachu I think it's pointing to a tongue in cheek comedy... if the writers didn't say so already...

And considering one of the writers once sang the Pokemon Theme song as a couple of his characters for a live stream I still say the movie is in good hands writing wise...

It's still the director I'm worried about...

Already Pokemon is clinch and making this into detective show must be a joke story! Maybe can only do work for kids.

Are you talking about Alex Hirsch? Links please! Very Happy
(With him as writer, this movie might be worth watching after all...if the writing can survive production hell).

I hope this is on the self aware side because that's the only way I could take this movie seriously.

Does this mean that Pikachu will be the mouse with a mouth?

I'm not quite sure what to think about the news, but the mental image it conjured up raised a smile

After watching the trailer for the Detective Pikachu game... Yeah, this might actually work.
