When it was originally announced that a Great Detective Pikachu movie got the greenlight, fans thought Danny DeVito would be the perfect choice for the character. Hollywood, however, had someone else in mind.
See? DeVito is perfect!
As just announced, Ryan Reynolds will play Detective Pikachu when production starts in London early next year. Some fans have opinions about this -- not all necessarily negative and not all necessarily pleased!
that's a weird way to spell Danny Devito pic.twitter.com/qgsfLxPkhj

R.I.P the dream of having Danny Devito as Detective Pikachu's voice

Didn't expect Ryan Reynolds as Detective Pikachu to be honest and Danny Devito would have been a good choice but hey, still kind of looking forward to this nonetheless...xD

I've seen several people mad the great Danny DeVito isn't Pikachu. Add me to that list.

Look, we all love Ryan Reynolds, but is it too early to start a GoFundMe to have Danny DeVito record all of Pikachu's lines as an alt voice track?

Casting Ryan Reynolds as Detective Pikachu is a slap to the face to fans who wanted Danny DeVito as Pikachu pic.twitter.com/wPRQJSRkK9

He may not be Danny DeVito, but Ryan Reynolds is a fantastic choice to voice Detective Pikachu. With Alex Hirsch writing and Reynolds voicing I have a feeling Legendary is trying to make a PG-rated Deadpool-type romp. Let’s hope they succeed.

wow detective pikachu casting guys Ryan reynolds is the worst typo of Danny Devito I've ever seen

My heart was set on Danny Devito to star as Detective Pikachu but Ryan Reynolds is fine too.
Maybe Danny can still be in the movie somehow. Perhaps as DP's Squirtle Squad informant. pic.twitter.com/sg7TxS6Llu
