Fans have been waiting for a Deadpool movie for over a decade. Ryan Reynolds became attached to play the Merc with a Mouth as far back as 2004 when a solo film about the meta mercenary was in the works at New Line Cinema, but he didn’t end up playing the character until a bastardized version of him arrived in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
After the disappointing spin-off mistreated the character on the big screen, rumors of a solo film persisted and finally came closer to reality after a pitch reel was made by visual effects wizard Tim Miller. Thankfully the pitch reel was leaked and fan reaction was finally enough to convince 20th Century Fox to make the movie.
Now that the film is in post-production, Ryan Reynolds talks Deadpool, opening up a bit about the thrill of finally getting to make this movie after 10 years and why now is the perfect time to make it happen. Read More »

The Deadpool trailer arrived for public view this week, and the two versions of the trailer combined have been viewed over fourteen million times, plus those who saw the actual broadcast debut. For a huge audience, though, Deadpool may still be something of a mystery. We’ve seen footage, but still know relatively little about the movie.
That’s where director Tim Miller comes in. He provided written Deadpool trailer commentary, and the info he shared helps put a lot of the trailer in additional context, while also teasing stuff still to come in the film, and even things that have already failed to make the cut.
Miller explains a bit about the appearance of X-Men Colossus, and some Green Lantern-bashing dialogue that probably won’t make final cut. Oh, and he suggests a sequel character whose name rhymes with Cable. (OK, the name is actually Cable.) Read More »
