Deadpool is happening, release date revealed


Fox adds another X-Men spin-off to its schedules, and it’s the one we wanted: Deadpool is finally happening…

Well, we though it’d never happen. Half a decade after Ryan Reynolds brought the character to the screen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, we’re finally, finally getting the long-mooted Deadpool movie.

The film has been given a release date, and it’s due in cinemas on February 12th 2016. Tim Miller, who’s been attached for a while, is directing. Ryan Reynolds is still the favourite to take the lead role, given his long-standing attachment to the project. But as of yet, he’s not confirmed in the role.

The other question is whether Fox will press ahead and allow this one to be R-rated, as arguably Deadpool needs to be.

The confirmation that Deadpool is happening comes after test footage of the film leaked a few weeks ago. The reaction to said footage was strong, and might just have convinced Fox to give Deadpool a try.

Deadpool (Wade Winston Wilson) is a fictional character, a mercenary and anti-hero appearing in comic books published byMarvel Comics. Created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza, Deadpool first appeared in New Mutants #98 (Feb. 1991).

A disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary, Deadpool originally appeared as a villain in an issue of New Mutants, and later in issues of X-Force. The character has since starred in several ongoing series, and shares titles with other characters such as Cable. Also known as the “Merc with a Mouth,” Deadpool is famous for his talkative nature and his tendency to break the fourth wall, which is used by writers to humorous effect.

He was portrayed by Ryan Reynolds in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine and will appear in his own feature film set to be released on February 12, 2016.
