Ryan Reynolds Gets Deadpool Spinoff Movie

Ryan Reynolds Gets Deadpool Spinoff Movie

Ryan Reynolds will be starring in his very own X-Men spinoff movie for his character Deadpool, whom he played in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

According to Variety, Deadpool is Wade Wilson, a mercenary who, dying of cancer, submits himself to the Weapon X genetic alteration experiment and emerges as an indestructible semi-sane anti-hero.

In one of the two “Easter egg” endings for Wolverine, Deadpool is seen rising from the rubble and whispering “Shhh” to audiences. (The other ending has Wolverine drinking to remember rather than to forget.)

He was the best character in the movie I must say. I would definitely see this.

I’m not opposed to spoilers, I actually welcome them, but the Easter Egg comments are MAJOR spoilers! LOL!

WHAT?! How unfair I only caught the Wolverine one.
But that would be really cool to see Deadpool back, but I thought he was gone cause his head got chopped off, isn’t that how you kill a mutant anyways? Unless he was like super super powerful and his head grew back.

And isn’t he actually Weapon 11? Since Logan was Weapon X.

I’m so confused now. Ahhh thanks.

@Erin:

Deadpool has had his head cut off several times. He literally can’t die. In the comics he comes back to life because he has some realtionship with “Death” and Thanos gets jealous and bring him back to life for eternity forever out of Deaths graps. For the sake of just comparing healing factors. Deadpools is suppost to put Wolverines to shame as it is effected by his emotions rather than Wolverines is just automatic. So when Deadpool is friendly insane self he grows limbs back pretty quickly and narly. When depressed takes much longer for it to grow back.

Oh HALE FECKING YESSSS…….

There is a GOD, and he loves me SOOOO MUCH!!!!

Long Live TripleR.

OMG! ryan reynolds was hilarious as always in wolverine…
even if he had so short a screentime…he made a mark!
and it’s good that he’d get a spin-off
that’s cool!

Erin, unfortunately the Wolverine movie completely screwed up Deadpool’s origins, etc. Here’s a better explanation for you:

Deadpool can actually survive for a bit w/ his head off. He has amazing healing ability. However, he cannot shoot lasers out of his eyes, nor does he have katanas coming out of forearms. Also, his teleporting power is from a teleportation device and not from the DNA from another mutant.

Weapon X (in the comics) refers to the actual government program, not the individual.

Deadpool should be scarred from the reaction of Wolverine’s healing ability w/ his cancer.

They did quite well w/ his humor as Wade though. If you want to know more about the character, read some of his comics and/or peruse his wiki article:

I’m ready to buy my ticket like now!

i love ryan!! kewl.

woooo!!!!! yes a spinoff! i liked his character in the movie. the fact that it was ryan reynolds helped too :D id heard rumors of this but its official!! yay!!!!!

now all we need is a Gambit spinoff :D

LOL, I love that some users want to point out Deadpool’s background story and healing factors, but this is JustJared.com. The place where almost every user can scream a higher pitch than an orca.

I just hope they’ll treat Ryan to the same water tank treatment Hugh Jackman’s abs were given. See? This is JustJared.com, I can make comments like that.

Now i can sleep in peace. I’ve been wondering who’s next after Wolverine.

Yay. \:D/ Can’t wait.

NOOO !
i want gambit :(

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH !!!

Lol, that was my scream louder than an orca ! Praise the lord everybody !!! I’m totally gonna see this movie !!!!!!!!!

I loved Ryan Reynolds in Wolverine, he was just perfect !! And did you see his body at the end ????? I could just die…

But hopefully with a better script than Wolverine.

Yes, good for Ryan, he was the best in Wollverine, he deserved that.
