Ryan Reynolds Is ‘Deadpool’

Fox is closing a deal with Ryan Reynolds for a feature on Deadpool, the character he originated in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The film, which Fox is making in conjunction with Marvel Studios, is being directed by Tim Miller, who has done strong visual effects work through his VFX house Blur Films. Miller has been developing the film for several years, from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, with Lauren Shuler Donner producing. Reynolds and other cast have posted photos of Deadpool on Twitter, so clearly this is going. Production begins in March.

When Reynolds made that first appearance as Deadpool, also known as Wade Wilson, he was a smart-mouthed mercenary with terminal cancer who undergoes military experiments in an attempt to replicate Wolverine’s mutant healing factor. He comes away with the ability to heal quickly — but for the price of being indestructible, he is rendered severely scarred. His acerbic attitude remains, though, earning him the nickname “The Merc with a Mouth.” Curiously, they quieted him, but that isn’t taking advantage of Reynolds’ quick wit. There are opportunities for a wise-cracking indestructible weapon who could take out a brigade of terrorists merely by blowing himself up in their midst.
