Ryan Reynolds will not only voice the protagonist in the Detective Pikachu movie, but he will also enact the character’s facial movements.
Attempting to dissociate himself from his ‘Deadpool’ alter-ego, Reynolds posted a behind-the-scenes image of how he “transforms” into ‘Detective Pikachu’.
The first half of the actor’s image shows a close-up look at ‘Pikachu’, while the other half sees numerous motion capture marker dots on Reynolds’ face that help make the CGI character’s gestures appear more realistic.
‘Detective Pikachu’ is officially more expressive than ‘Deadpool’.
