If you didn't know, Pokémon icon Pikachu is getting his own film in the form of Detective Pikachu, based on the game series of the same name, and now a new piece from The Hollywood Reporter has claimed that Ryan Reynolds will play Pikachu in the film.

Reynolds will star alongside Justice Smith and Kathryn Newton, with Rob Letterman directing the project, due to start shooting in London next month. The plot will allegedly follow Pikachu investigating the disappearance of Smith's character's father, with Newton being a journalist helping with the case.

Details are scarce apart from that, but do you like the casting choice of Reynolds as Pikachu?
