'Deadpool' Movie Gets Release Date, Will Ryan Reynolds Star?!

'Deadpool' Movie Gets Release Date, Will Ryan Reynolds Star?!

The long-awaited X-Men spin-off Deadpool has finally been set into motion and it just got a release date of February 12, 2016.

Twentieth Century Fox and Marvel Comics are teaming up for the new film and Tim Miller will be making his feature film directorial debut with the movie. He previously did the visual effects for the cult favorite Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Ryan Reynolds, who played the role in the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is rumored to play the part, but he is not yet confirmed. Some test footage recently leaked and Ryan actually commented on it.

“There was such an overpowering reaction to the footage, you sort of feel like, ‘Oh, so we weren’t crazy for our reasons for loving this character, for loving this role.’ It’s interesting to see the power of the Internet. It’s awe-inspiring, actually,” Ryan told the Niagara Falls Review. “And it’s neat that Twitter and Facebook and Instagram can move mountains when used in the right way.”

    Ryan flop Reynolds hell no

    Instead of fixing the mess that has been Rogue in the last 2 movies, Fox decides to make another male superheroe movie. Justice for Rogue and Anna!!!

  • yes

    He better play Deadpool. He’s perfect for that role.

    @mel: I don’t think Anna makes a good Rogue but they do need to fix her.

  • Kent

    Yes! it’s about time they start to make this movie!

  • mel

    @yes: She didn’t have any real chance, the only thing they did with Rogue was depowering her (and I’m not talking about the cure). Anna is a great actress, she can handle the part if Fox puts some real interest on it.

  • NO

    @sexy: I second that! Ryan Reyonlds was horrible as Green Latern and Wade Wilson. The man can’t act.

    I prefer Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool better than Green Lantern.
