In anticipation for him to wander round the halls of Comic-Con causing no end of trouble, Wade Wilson aka The Merc With A Mouth has turned up on Entertainment Weekly’s front cover only to get wires crossed over why he’s there. Though Ryan Reynolds may have topped their list of Sexiest Man Alive in 2010, his unhinged alter-ego hasn’t been so lucky. Ah well Wade, ya can’t win them all. You can’t kill them all either, so please don’t do that.
Unthinkable as it may be, the Tim Miller director superhero film has been confirmed as an R-rated, no holds barred adaptation of Marvel’s most infamous nut jobs, who whilst being bath*t crazy and practically unkillable, is fully aware that he is in fact in a comic book. You can get a dose of just how that will will work on screen thanks to the test footage that was filmed and then got the approval of 20th Century Fox to give Deadpool another go, following his terrible treatment in that X-Men Origins: Wolverine film that we all wish we could forget. Hopefully this Deadpool will wipe the slate clean and cover it in a mish-mash of atrocious language, blood and chimichanga ingredients, just like we all hoped it will.
Written by Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool also stars TJ Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax. There’s whispers that a Mr. Jackman will also make a brief appearance in the film as a well-known mutant, probably holding his claws up as well to apologise on behalf of Wade’s first appearance, right before he snikt’s him in the face. Hurrah. We can await to either confirm or deny that when Deadpool arrives in cinemas February 12, 2016.
