Ryan Reynolds… IS… Detective Pikachu!

The man’s is in that fun, subversive zone where he can get away with not taking serious not-serious things. Like puff pieces about his new movie Detective Pikachu. It’s not very subversive, mind you. Just enough to make the suits roll their eyes a little.

Ryan Reynolds can get away with it, though. Probably everybody in America with a kid into Pokemon is going to be bringing them to this film. Certainly my kid insisted. When you’ve got that going for you, you can be a little bit of a PitA to the suits.
