Deadpool was dead, but he got better...
While the idea of a Deadpool flick directed by the awesome team of Neveldine/Taylor fills us with delicious chills, that's not to be. BUT, we do finally have official word from Fox that a fully fledged D-dog movie is on the way.
Along with a batch of release date shuffles, including a major move for Assassin's Creed, Fox announced a February 12th 2016 release date for an honest-to-goodness comic book adaptation featuring WadeWilson. The film even has a director, VFX guy Tim Miller who was responsible for the raucous test footage which appeared online a couple of months back.
That was plenty of fun Ryan Reynolds was actually on board as the voice and mo-cap artist for the character. The actor has been passionate in his support of a movie version for years now, even appearing as Wilson in the pretty awful X-Men Origins Wolverine. And although his casting hasn't been confirmed as yet, its surely only a matter of time before he finally gets to don the mask and chat to the audience.
The script was written byRhett ReeseandPaul Wernick and Reese has been tweeeting appropirately about the annoucement.
We cant wait to hear more about Deadpool. See it in cinemas, with blood and cursing and everything [crosses fingers] in February 2016.
