Ryan Reynolds Shares His Transformation into Detective Pikachu

It’s not everyday that someone gets to play the role of one of the world’s biggest gaming mascots, but Ryan Reynolds has shared a cute video on transforming into Detective Pikachu. Although not a true behind the scenes look, Reynolds goes over the most basic of steps to the motion capture used for the film which includes placing black stencil spots all over his face. He then goes on to mention it’ll take knowing someone with expensive movie quality software to really render it, but nonetheless is a cute little nod to fans. There is some quick looks at the process of adding Pikachu into scenes, and some more looks at the film as well.

Detective Pikachu is out in theaters on May 10. Check out Ryan Reynold’s video below:
