Jonesing for More "X-Men" Films? "Deadpool" and a Whole LOT MORE are Coming! 


Ryan Reynolds will have his own "X-Men" film with "Deadpool." Twentieth Century Fox has begun developing the project with the actor in mind. Reynolds played the character in the recent "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."

Variety is saying:

The character is one of the most popular in Marvel Comics' X-Men universe. Deadpool is Wade Wilson, a mercenary who, dying of cancer, submits himself to the Weapon X genetic alteration experiment and emerges as an indestructible semi-sane anti-hero. Reynolds seemed destined to play the character. In one reference in the Marvel Comics, Deadpool is described as a mix between "a Shar Pei and Ryan Reynolds."

Wow, the actor is referenced in the comic book! Cool!

Oh, did you know that in one of the "Easter egg" endings of "Wolverine," Deadpool is seen rising from the rubble and whispering "Shhh" to audiences?

HA! Fox already had this spin-off planned way in advanced :happy

In more "Wolverine" news, Fox is also developing a sequel, and if you guys stayed through the credits of the film, you would have seen Wolverine sitting in a bar in Japan. Why does that matter? Because the sequel will talk about a samurai storyline for our favorite man-beast-adamantium formed super-hero!

And then, of course, we have "Magneto" soon to come, and "X-Men: First Class" as well.
