deadpool.gifAccording to Ain’t It Cool News, Deadpool will be one of the central figures for the Marvel Studios Wolverine movie, and Ryan Reynolds will be playing him.

This one’s supposed to be a secret, but cat’s out of the bag now, Marvel. And I have to say… I think it sounds like fun. I know this has been a character you guys have been developing for years now (hell, I think I pitched a DEADPOOL film back in 2001), and Reynolds is absolutely the right guy for the job.

Other rumors floating around hint that many Marvel villains will be making cameos in the film.

    I wish this should have been something like “Wolverine movie character revealed after the jump.”

    I should get movies spoiled just because I come here for reviews. Of course, I don’t pay a fee to use this website. Still, I was really dissapointed to have this spoiled. I’d like to have some filter to decide what I’d like spoiled and what I’d like not to have spoiled. I want to know who’s a Skrull, not who’s Luke’s father.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    DC made a mistake when they didn’t grab up Ryan Reynolds for Flash. I loved his snarky attitude in Blade III and I have to admit that I have an unrequited man-crush on him. I wasn’t necessarily sold on the Wolverine solo-flick, but the casting of late has impressed me.

    Oh and Russell … relax dude this story has been all over the Interwebs today …. you would have found it here or on another site. And it’s not like the boys spoiled the ending …

    and then DC sues because Deadpool is a ripoff of Deathstroke :)

    no but really, it will be interesting if Deadpool is played in character calling the enemy soldiers mooks, breaking the 4th wall and saying things like “what do you think this is, a movie?”

    Well, I’m sorry we’ve upset you, but I do have a couple of points:

    First, it *IS* just a rumor, not confirmed fact.

    Second, we’re a comic site, and it’s a comic movie, so it’s pretty close to our purview.

    Third, we’re *MAJOR FREAKING SPOILERS.* :) The warning is built into the name.

    That said, we will take your comments under consideration… No real offense was intended, and we hope you’ll come back for reviews in the future…

    Good casting call, if the rumor’s true. I could definitely see Reynolds as Deadpool.
