If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Ever since the release of the, shall we say, less-than-stellar 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' fans have been curious about the possibility of a spin-off movie featuring the character Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds ('Green Lantern') played the role of Deadpool (aka Wade Wilson) in Gavin Hood's Wolverine film and many wondered whether he would reprise the role for the character's individual film. In fact, after a couple of years of silence, many wondered whether the Deadpool movie would happen at all. Well fret no longer, Dead (pool) Heads, it looks like the movie is in fact a reality. A recent report states that 'Deadpool,' indeed starring Reynolds, will finally go into production later this year. Tim Miller (who worked on visual effects for 'Scott Pilgrim') is still attached to direct the anti-hero superhero flick. This same source also stated that Marvel's mulligan movie, 'The Wolverine,' will go into production this year as well.
I'm actually interested to see a film delve deeper into the origins of Deadpool. I won't pretend to be an expert on the character, but I like the fact that he was a terminal cancer patient who allowed the Weapon X program to save him, the same program of course that gave us Wolverine. But more than that, I like that Marvel is going to give us a character who doesn't conform to the rigorous, black and white definitions of good and evil; of hero and villain. It will also be interesting to see what Reynolds can do with the character when he's not suffocated by the dreadful 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' script. But of course, I need some help from the Spillverse on this one. Tell me what you guys think of Deadpool getting his own film. Do you think Ryan Reynolds is the right choice for the role or has 'Wolverine' and/or 'Green Lantern'put you off the idea of this guy playing a comic book character?
As of right now, 'Deadpool' is slated for a 2014 release.
