One of the top five "heroes" in the Marvel Universe is poised to become the newest figure to get the live action treatment. Created all the way back in 1991 by comic book artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieze, Deadpool made his first appearance almost 25 years ago in New Mutants #98.
Deadpool is one of those rare characters that busted out of the gate as an immediate fan favorite. While underneath the red duds, Deadpool is really Wade Wilson, a hardcore soldier that wants to get paid no matter the job. His alt outlook of the Marvel U has made him a cult favorite for a quarter of a century.
Deadpool is known for his disfigured appearance and for being mentally unstable amongst his peers. While the character continues to grow in popularity, fans clamor for a solo Deadpool movie that takes the kid gloves off. Recently, X-Men scribe Simon Kinberg showed his cards when talking to MoviePilot. The seasoned writer/producer hinted that "Yeah, it makes sense to me. Genuinely, its early phases, early days, but if you're gonna do a Deadpool movie, I think you've gotta do a hard-R, darker movie and he is the perfect character to do it with."
Ryan Reynolds will reprise his role as Deadpool after his appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, wisecracks and all. Another big rumor around the Internet is that there actually is going to be an X-Force film featuring Deadpool. Screenrant.com states that Deadpool may be part of a whole new X-world as a team member of the Rob Liefeld created group. Deadpool may be psychotic but he works well in a team atmosphere. Furthermore, Screenrant has reported that the latest rumors may have Deadpool embarking into another dimension and meeting up with future X-Man Cable, his former partner. No word on any movie start date yet but it surely will keep voracious fans chomping at the bit waiting for the next morsel of news.
