Detective Pikachu Finds A Release Date

We were all shocked and overjoyed last week when Ryan Reynolds was cast as the title character in Detective Pikachu. That’s right, not only will Deadpool’s sweet voice serenade you from a little yellow rat, but Reynolds is doing motion-capture work to bring the Pokemon to life.

Deadline now reports that Detective Pikachu has a release date: May 10, 2019.

Unfortunately for Detective Pikachu and Ryan Reynolds, this means the film follows Avengers 4, the culmination of the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, by just a week. This title is surely aimed at a mostly younger demographic than Avengers 4 (don’t expect Detective Pikachu and Deadpool to have that similar a vocabulary), though there is definitely some overlap.

Detective Pikachu will feature the Pokemon investigator as he helps a character played by Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) find her kidnapped father. On their adventure, they team up with a sassy journalist played by Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies).

The film will be directed by Rob Letterman (Goosebumps), from a script by Alex Hirsch (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) and Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy).
