• Ryan Reynolds has been focusing on other franchises like Deadpool, Free Guy, and Red Notice, which may explain why Detective Pikachu 2 hasn't been a priority for him.
  • Despite Universal's intentions to make the sequel, Reynolds has not shared his thoughts on the project or confirmed his involvement, indicating he's letting others handle its development.
  • The complicated role of Ryan Reynolds in Detective Pikachu 2, where he voiced Pikachu but also appeared as Tim's father, may be causing difficulties in finding a compelling reason for Reynolds to be significantly involved in the sequel. This lack of clarity could be the reason for the delay.
