Ryan Reynolds, who plays the titular role in both Deadpool and Detective Pikachu, has been having fun referencing his comic book role in relation to the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie. Now we're hearing that one of Reynolds' Deadpool 2 co-stars is going to further the connection between the two films.
Inside sources state that Rob Delaney, known as Peter in Deadpool 2, will have some sort of role in Detective Pikachu. Obviously this would be a tongue-in-cheek reference to Deadpool 2, so it's likely to be an indirect nod, rather than a blatant call-out. Most are speculating that Delaney will provide the voice for a Pokemon in the movie, which definitely seems like a smart idea for the sly reference.
