Fox Studios has finally pulled the trigger on making a Deadpool movie, and the studio has announced a release date, too.

Fox and Marvel have given the go ahed to bring Deadpool to the big screen on February 12, 2016, with Tim Miller confirmed to direct. While Ryan Reynolds played Deadpool in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie, there is no word yet on if he will reprise the role.

Other than the usual, blah, blah, blah that accompanies movie announcements, there is nothing new to add at this time. I know there were a few people concerned over Wade Wilson’s treatment and origin story in the X-Men flick, so I wonder if everyone is okay with that origin and character development for the stand alone flick.

    I’m not holding my breath on this one just yet after the previous announcements about this movie going forward.

    I wouldn’t mind if they did one of the ideas they previously mentioned where they would have Reynolds return as the character, but it wouldn’t have been the same one as seen previously. While I didn’t like his previous Deadpool and I thought he wasn’t the best choice for Hal Jordan, I think he’d be a decent choice for a version of Deadpool more closely tied to how he is portrayed in the comics.

    I read a comment pointing out that with the timeline changed by DOFP it could still be the same Reynolds character, but without the Baraka lookalike.

    Hopefully not Reynolds. Always though he was Jason Lee light.
