Vancouver has a starring role in Deadpool


Vancouver has a starring role in Deadpool

Vancouver Sun

Vancouver's Ryan Reynolds has the lead role in Deadpool, but the actor's hometown also plays a significant part in the Marvel comic book movie.

Vancouverites are used to seeing their city on the big screen, but usually we are subbing in for Seattle, New York, Los Angeles or some other American town because Vancouver never plays itself in the movies.

Although Deadpool takes place in a nameless city, director Tim Miller's movie is full of familiar Vancouver landmarks (minor spoilers ahead):

1. Georgia Street viaduct

The Deadpool crew spent two weeks last April shooting a pivotal action scene on the Georgia Viaduct. The eastbound span that leads out of downtown was closed to traffic during morning hours from April 5-18 to accommodate filming. Commuters who weren't comic book fans were a little annoyed. Once you see the movie, you'll understand why they needed so much time on the viaduct as nearly a third of the film takes place there...

'Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood."
-architect Daniel Burnman

Got to see large segments of filming on the viaduct whilst commuting and running training sessions at Andy Livingstone. Really looking forward to seeing this one.

Okay! So I guess I have to watch the movie again. No idea how I'd failed to notice this.
