The Geek Files report that Deadpool will indeed go into production at some point this year. While director Tim Miller has been attached to the project since last April, there's been little news in regards to the official status of the spin-off - we were repeatedly assured that it was still happening, just not when exactly. Of course, it was only last week that artist Rob Liefeld revealed that he'd seen eight minutes of test footage for the R-Rated flick.

In other news, the site goes on to reveal that Green Lantern star Ryan Reynolds is still attached to play the 'Merc With A Mouth.' Their sources at 20th Century Fox have also confirmed that The Wolverine will go into production this year.

I Hate RR but paradoxically want him to be Deadpool in this movie. His snide, assholish insanity would actually work with WW. Make me love you, RR!

Deadpool is such a joke even his name is a joke. They call him Wade Wilson because he's a basically a knockoff of dc's Deathstroke, Slade Wilson. Besides, RR breaks the 4th wall in all of his movies anyway, right?
Viltrumite - 1/18/2012, 4:17 PM
Oh dear god yes. I am really hopeful that both of these movies will be great (and R-rated).
scmittydude - 1/18/2012, 4:17 PM
YES!!!!!!!

Did I just hear someone say Ryan Reynolds the movie killer? Yeah because Ryan Reynolds is what was wrong with Green Lantern......

If there was ever a comic book character that Ryan Reynolds was born to play its Deadpool. I seriously can't wait to see the first picture of the costume and of him in Costume.

Deadpool starts pre-production this year?! Great news that 20th Century Fox is getting the ball rolling on their Marvel properties. Wolverine 2 and Deadpool will be killer movies and I'm crossing my fingers for the Fantastic Four, Daredevil, and X-Men: First Class 2!

They've said this before, it's be awesome if ligit.
tweeeeenkies3 - 1/18/2012, 4:28 PM
I used to like Ryan Reynolds, but he is so over used now!

I say, Devon Sawa (Nikita) or Jensen Ackles (Supernatural).
Both are great actors, who have experience in the action theme, and they can play some pretty funny characters!





Plus, they are both pretty cut!
They would just need a little more training.

that's some good news to hear?)

I don't give a crap about this, as long as they use original script from the Zombieland guys, and Ryan Reynolds/Dan Cook plays him, I'll pay 10 bucks to see it.
acidbath - 1/18/2012, 4:46 PM
Say what you will about rr but he only agreed to that shitty wolverins origins part if he got a deadpool movie done correctly so we have him to thank that its getting made and if it sucks then you can blame him. I have high hopes personally.
bellEND - 1/18/2012, 4:48 PM
The script is specifically written for Ryan Reynolds to star in. So please calm the [frick] down and shut the [frick] up. Its very well written, if they stick to the script it will be sick! Hope they cast Colossus properly..
acidbath - 1/18/2012, 4:48 PM
Writing was to blame for the abortion that was green lantern no amount of acting could have saved that script just like wolverine origins
tweeeeenkies3 - 1/18/2012, 4:52 PM
I still would not mind Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool though...
He is a good actor, I just think he is over used.

I do think he could pull it off, though!
JatevinM - 1/18/2012, 4:54 PM
I'm sorry...you know what I wont apologize for what I am about to say. Anyone who thinks Ryan Reynolds is what ruined the Green Lantern is retarded and should seriously never get on the internet or touch a keyboard ever again.
stumbleMaster57 - 1/18/2012, 4:58 PM
finally
Bandrews1 - 1/18/2012, 5:00 PM
I hope this turns out true, because I think we've waited long enough.
tweeeeenkies3 - 1/18/2012, 5:06 PM
I would also LOVE to see Domino, Oulaw, or Siryn (Currently named Banshee) show up, as a main character.

I think Domino would be coolest though...
A powerful, kick ass female would just make the movie even better!

It would be interesting to see how they would show Deadpool working with a female on screen!
FEJ - 1/18/2012, 5:06 PM
If it is done and whoever makes it HAS to do the character and the film JUSTICE.
thalidomide - 1/18/2012, 5:11 PM
at some point this year

Wow that's reassuring -_- I'm tired of this rumours and for some reason I don't want the film to be made at all anymore, just leave DP in the comics, video games and cartoons. I prefer him having occasional cameos in Avengers EMH than having his own movie, at least he will be portrayed exactly like in the comics.
tweeeeenkies3 - 1/18/2012, 5:20 PM
Is there a reason I got a "troublemaker troll", for saying it would be cool to have a female in the movie?

That makes no sense.

jf11mm - 1/18/2012, 5:29 PM
I have to agree with some of thes folks on here when i see it i will belive it.
JatevinM - 1/18/2012, 5:30 PM
Wolverine is going to have to show his face in this movie in some capacity. I seriously think it would be a waist of a good chance to let him get brutal let along get brutal with Wade.
GUNSMITH - 1/18/2012, 5:47 PM
HURRY UP THEN.
THABATMAN - 1/18/2012, 5:56 PM
Make it happen. NOW!
as one of the most anxious ppl wanting to see GL I feel needed to say that Its failure was not Reynolds fault. The script and story was horrible. Character development was trash and parralaxx was just as bad as galactus cloud.. if not worse
Kiriyama - 1/18/2012, 5:57 PM
Sean william scott!!! Stiffler would be a much better deadpool
drykillogic22 - 1/18/2012, 5:57 PM
PHUKK RR..Sean William Scott for DP!!!
m0th3r - 1/18/2012, 6:07 PM
@JAYBleezy Why?!?!? Fox does TERRIBLE work..all the movies they have done have either sucked terribly(DD,FF1,FF2,Elecrta,X3), or in the case of the Singer Xmen, BARELY above the low bar. Sorry, FC blew...not xmen, maybe ymen, or zmen... No, what we need is for them to give the rights back to marvel..i mean wtf do you need..I think Ms.Donner made her true feelings for the characters when she allowed that Turd-a-polluza called "Wolverine".

Yes, Thank you God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
