A quite good choice I think: we can be sure that Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick won’t ignore the tongue-in-cheek side of Deadpool! They did show some great humor in Zombieland, let’s hope that Fox won’t restrain their creativity!
Actor Ryan Reynolds, who played the role of Wade Wilson aka Deadpool in Wolverine will reprise his role. He’s currently busy working on the Green Lantern movie, so because of that, there is no official release date yet for the movie Deadpool. :)
Producer Lauren Shuler Donner has been talking about the upcoming live action Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds. She’s bringing some good new for the hard-core fans of the mutant mercenary: the movie Deadpool is a kind of reboot that won’t take the last Wolverine movie into account. Here’s what she said about
“I want to ignore the version of Deadpool that we saw in Wolverine and just start over again. Reboot it. Because this guy talks, obviously, and to muzzle him would be insane. He is a bad ass, a wise-cracking mercenary, who will go out and kill anyone for money. It’s going to be a dark, snarky, very funny movie. [... and about Ryan Reynolds:] I mean, look at Harrison Ford – he was in Star Wars and Indiana Jones at the same time and everyone was fine with that. Green Lantern could not be more different to Wade Wilson. Green Lantern is a guy who finds a ring and is thrust into this world, much like Spider-Man. Wade Wilson is a guy who unfortunately gets cancer, and volunteers for a test that will give him healing powers.”

So Deadpool will be a dark, snarky, very funny movie: well that’s tantalizing! Hope she will keep her word about this Deadpool movie and that it will be as witty as the comic books! :)
“Look, I’m into any role in which I get to kick Captain America in the nuts. [..] Yeah, the script is in the works. That’s about all I can really say. They’re actively hashing it out.[...] Well, I’m intimately involved with it. We’re just trying to break a story right now and figure out who the villain is going to be and all that stuff. But, it’s going to be just like the comic books. I’m gonna have a messed up face and you may see some flashbacks of Wade earlier in his life, but primarily what you see is what you get in the comics and that’s the goal. And there is no better place to draw material from than the comics which are incredible.”
Actor Ryan Reynolds
Good to know they keep the funny side of Deadpool in mind: I laugh out loud after reading about Captain America’s nuts!
I wonder if Scott Adkins will be back too as stunt double. Hope so, because I can’t imagine Ryan Reynolds training enough in just 3 years… :)
Deadpool has quite a large following among comic book fans. And the super mutant is likely to get his own movie in a not-so-distant future. The word is that Marvel is definitely thinking about it. Ryan Reynolds will probably reprise his role as Wade Wilson / Deadpool, unless he is eventually replaced by stuntman and actor Scot Adkins who was hired to replace Reynolds in the fight scenes.
Deapool My name is Wade Wilson. I’m a mercenary. And I love what I do!
Deadpool is a crazy mercenary: he is maybe a bit of a villain, but he isn’t evil, he is just cynical and crazy. An explosive combination that makes his character so interesting.
This hypothetical Deapool movie has no script yet though. So what do you think a Deadpool movie should be about? Should the story pick up right after the events described in Wolverine? :)
