Deadpool

Deadpool Deadpool (Wade Winston Wilson) is a fictional character, a mercenary and anti-hero appearing in Marvel comic books. Created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza, Deadpool first appeared in The New Mutants #98 (Feb. 1991).
A disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary, Deadpool originally appeared as a villain in an issue of New Mutants, and later in issues of X-Force and in several ongoing series. Deadpool is one of the primary antagonists of the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, portrayed by Ryan Reynolds.[63] He is a highly skilled, wisecracking but greatly immoral mercenary who wields a pair of samurai swords with superhuman speed and skill sufficient to deflect fully automatic weapons fire. He is later killed offscreen by Sabretooth, only to return transformed by Colonel William Stryker into Weapon XI (stunts portrayed by Scott Adkins), a mutant killer who possesses other mutants' powers, including Scott Summers' optic blasts, John Wraith's teleportation, Chris Bradley's technopathy, Wolverine's healing factor, and a pair of extendable blades resembling Wilson's prized swords. He is referred to by Stryker as "the Deadpool" because the compatible powers of the other mutants have been "pooled" together into one being. Wolverine and Sabretooth fight Deadpool in the film's climax and manage to defeat him by decapitating him and sending him falling into a cooling tower of a nuclear power plant, although a post-credits scene appearing in DVD releases and some theatrical presentations of the film implies Deadpool is still alive. A spin-off of X-Men Origins: Wolverine starring Deadpool is in development, and Reynolds is attached to reprise his role. According to Empire, a script is in development, and Deadpool will "break the fourth wall" during the film. Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have been attached to write the script for the film. On April 8, 2011, Tim Miller was hired to direct the film. Originally the film was set to be rated PG-13, but the rating was later reconsidered with the possible addition of gore.
