  Deadpool Origins Green Lit!
Posted by: Mike on May 6th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

Those of you who didn’t like the Wolverine Origins film, may have still enjoyed Ryan Reynolds being Van Wilder being Wade Wilson.  When I say that, it’s because Ryan Reynolds plays himself in everything he’s in, and himself is Van Wilder. And I love it.

The best news you’re going to hear all day, is that Fox has green lit a “Deadpool” spin off, based on the opening weekend of Wolverine.  That means sometime next year, we’ll get to see an entire movie of Wade/Deadpool, and not 18 seconds of him that we got in Wolverine.

Press release from MTV News below:

MTV News has received official word that there is also a “Deadpool” solo movie in active development, with “Wolverine” actor Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as Wade Wilson, Marvel’s mutant assassin. According to a source close to Fox, the “Deadpool” spin-off film will be produced by Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel, and will be “a complete exploration of this unique character — his origins, his emergence as the Merc with the Mouth.” The studio is currently seeking writers for the project.

Is this not the best news you’ve head so far today, or what?!

  Ryan Reynolds in Wolverine?

Rope of Silicon has some info about two new additions to the cast of Wolverine – Taylor Kitsch (of “Friday Night Lights”) and MovieSnobs favorite Ryan Reynolds.

Kitsch will be playing Gambit and Reynolds will be Deadpool, a wise-cracking mercenary.

All I know is that the combination of Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman in one movie may have too many gratuitous ab shots. Somehow, I’m ok with that.
