Deadpool Movie Announced

Deadpool Movie AnnouncedIn a conformation from 20th Century fox, Ryan Reynolds, who played Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, in the recent X-Men Origins: Wolverine, has been given his very own spin-off movie, another origins movie. Now while there isn't even a suspected date, I would wager that the movie will come out in about three years if all goes well.

32-year-old Canadian actor Reynolds will reprise his role as the deadly wisecracking mercenary infected with cancer. The character receives a cure for his disease after being injected with a concoction that included a sample of Wolverine's blood and healing ability. For the movie, Deadpool's abilities consist of enhanced strength, regenerative healing abilities, and the ability to absorb the powers of dead mutants, hence the name "Deadpool".

Fans of the recent Origins movie will be happy to see such a beloved character, who was somewhat shortchanged in the first movie, get the screen time deserved. No release date has been announced but I would expect to see this movie some time around the summer of 2012 with the only logical title being X-Men Origins: Deadpool or something like that.

Also confirmed by 20th Century Fox is an X-Men Origins: Wolverine sequel as well as talks about a Magneto Origins movie and a movie called X-Men: First Class , which will focus on the core characters, Cyclops, Storm, Jean Grey, Beast, and others that were among the first "students" at the "Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters". Needless to say that X-Men and comic book fans are going to have a lot to look forward to in the coming years.


  1. "and the ability to absorb the powers of dead mutants, hence the name 'Deadpool'"

    No, this is not a power that Deadpool has nor is that where his name came from. I'm not sure where you pulled that out of.

  2. that is what the movie is giving him as far as powers, calm down.

  3. No, that's not a power he has in the movie either. That's why I'm confused as to where you got this from.

    He does have powers from multiple mutants in the film, but those are all given to him by the weapon x program, he didn't "absorb" them.


  4. the site i got my info from said he would have those powers in his OWN movie. the absorption thing, thats what i read

  5. well, just to clarify, not trying to diminish your journalism, but the name "Deadpool" is derived from his days at Weapon X. When comminting horrible experiments on their test subjects they would place bets on who would die next, last, ect. They called this the Deadpool.

    Hit me back at for further arguments. I was SO PISSED at how FOX did DeadPool. He never absorbed shit! His teleporting originaly came from tech he stole from S.H.I.E.L.D. The story of his name in the Wolverine movie was bullshit. The cyclops thing was gay. And the mouthskin and retractable swords...come to the fuck on! The only redeeming quality about DeadPool in the Wolverine movie was that they had the PERFECT actor to play him. Its not Ryans fault that FOX MAJORLY FUCKED UP the greatest MARVEL character of ALL TIME. I look forward to the DeadPool solo movie and have faith that Mr. Reynolds will perform flawlessly with the material provided to him. I hope that one of two or potentialy both of the following characters appear in the movie for obvious reasons for DeadPool fans. Cable and or T-Ray. Email me at the above adress for any further comments.
