According to the reports, the handsome Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds will voice Pikachu in the upcoming live-action Pokemon film, Detective Pikachu. He joins Justice Smith (Paper Towns, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) and Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies), who was cast just last week. Detective Pikachu will be a talking version of the yellow creature who wears a Sherlock-style deerstalker and claims to be a great detective. It was great to see Pikachu talking on-screen. The film will release later in 2018. Reynolds will be next seen in Deadpool 2, which is releasing on June 1, 2018.
