Supernatural and The Winchesters star Jensen Ackles has revealed he was considered to star in deadpool.

While the role of Wade Wilson eventually went to Ryan Reynolds, Ackles briefly lined up for it. “There was definitely a movie I talked about a lot,” he said while attending one Supernatural convention in Phoenix, Arizona (via CBR).

“I wasn’t available, so the train just stopped there. But if I had been available, I would have had to jump through the studio hoops and jump through the producer’s hoops and stuff. But I had a really good chance, And it’s a movie that I really, really like.”

Ackles did not immediately reveal which film he was referring to, but later confirmed that he meant it deadpool when asked by a fan, adding, “It was probably a good thing because my ex-girlfriend was there and that probably would have been awkward, so it probably worked out for the best.”

Despite not playing the Merc with a Mouth, Ackles holds no grudge, saying he thought the entire cast was “great”.

Ackles is currently playing in Supernatural spinoff The Winchesters as narrator and executive producer for the prequel series.
