'Deadpool' Hits Theaters in 2016
Everyone's favorite Merc with a Mouth is coming to theaters on Feb. 12, 2016, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed. The Deadpool film will reportedly star Ryan Reynolds, who played a controversially misguided version of the character in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, complete with laser vision, knives protruding out of his forearms and a sewn-shut mouth. Presumably, this film will have zero ties to that abysmal X-Men prequel, although I don't think anyone would be offended if Deadpool cracked some jokes at its expense in his first solo flick.
The film will be directed by relative newcomer Tim Miller, and will likely be using the script penned by Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wenick, whose vision for the character was recently showcased in some leaked test footage that surfaced online.
