Tim Miller is set to direct the film, with Ryan Reynolds long rumored to star, although no deal is set. (Bets are that he will.)

The beloved Marvel character Deadpool, aka Wade Wilson, is a talkative mercenary with a host of powers, including the ability to heal rapidly. Reynolds played Wilson in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, while Scott Adkins played the character of Deadpool after Wilson had transformed.

News of Deadpool’s release comes weeks after test footage of the project leaked briefly online. The sequence, featuring Reynolds, was shot several years ago, but nevertheless sparked intense conversation on social media.

In a recent interview, Reynolds commented on the leak, suggesting it helped move the process along. “The movie has been in a state of limbo for a while. There was such an overpowering reaction to the footage, you sort of feel like, ‘Oh, so we weren’t crazy for our reasons for loving this character, for loving this role.’ It’s interesting to see the power of the Internet. It’s awe-inspiring, actually,” the actor told the Niagara Falls Review. “And it’s neat that Twitter and Facebook and Instagram can move mountains when used in the right way.”

Reynolds, whose turn as the superhero Green Lantern failed at the box office, has been linked to a potential Deadpool solo movie for years, even before he debuted as the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. His interest in the property dates back to 2003.

Ryan Reynolds talks Deadpool Movie

From the Coventry Telegraph. . .

RYAN REYNOLDS has promised fans of Deadpool they will see a faithful version of the comic book character in the proposed spin-off.

The actor starred in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as sword-spinning Wade Wilson, who becomes the masked mercenary Deadpool.

Reynolds has now given an update on the project and assured comic book enthusiasts that there will be an accurate portrayal of the character.

He said: “I love it, because I get to be involved. And I’m such a huge fan of the character. I get to be the authentication police, in a weird way.

“To their credit – the studio’s credit – they want to make an authentic Deadpool movie; they want to make it as close to the source material as possible.”

Speaking to MTV, he said: “He’s going to be the Merc with the Mouth, [we’re going to give] all those answers that everyone wants. He’s going to have the scarred-up face, he’s going to be in the suit – and, it’s going to be incredible.”

The 32-year-old actor continued: “Right now, it’s just a question of trying to figure out what is the spine of the story,” he added. “Who is the villain? What does Wade and/or Deadpool want?

“And how do you tell that story? Are we going to see flashbacks to his old life, flash-forwards, present-day? We’re just trying to figure that stuff out.”

He and the studio are in the process of seeking a writer and director for the solo adventure.
