The ‘Merc with a Mouth’ is a disfigured and mentally unstable anti-hero who underwent military experiments in X-men Origins: Wolverine in an attempt to replicate Wolverine’s mutant healing factor. Known for being acerbically talkative with the fourth wall, Deadpool will hopefully showcase Reynold’s comedic timing.

The film’s plot is still shrouded in mystery, but writer and creator Rob Liefeld has confirmed that Peter Milligan’s mutant superheroes X-Statix will not be in the Deadpool mix.

Ryan Reynolds Will Be Back As 'Deadpool'; Teases Fans with Image

4 December 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Years ago visual effects maestro and aspiring director Tim Miller put together a proof-of-concept video for a Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds as the masked madman. For undisclosed reasons, though, that movie failed to get the greenlight at Fox. However, earlier this summer that proof-of-concept video leaked online and the Internet turned it into a flash-fire sensation and suddenly Fox became interested in making the movie. Fast-forward a few months and we're finally get confirmations that Miller's been given the thumbs up and that X-Men movie maven Lauren Shuler Donner will be producing the new movie. Ryan Reynolds is also now confirmed to star, which means he'll be reprising his role as Wade Wilson that we first saw in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Here's the...

Ryan Reynolds to Reprise His Role as the ‘Merc with a Mouth’ in Fox’s Deadpool Movie

4 December 2014 5:40 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A highly skilled assassin with Wolverine’s healing ability, an abundance of scars (of both the mental and physical variety), a lack of complete sanity, and a warped sense of wisecracking humor, Deadpool is one of Marvel’s most intriguing characters. Ryan Reynolds played Deadpool in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine and he’s now in final negotiations to portray the anti-hero once again in Fox’s recently announced Deadpool movie.

Bolstering what many expected, Deadline reports that Ryan Reynolds is set to reprise his role as Deadpool, aka Wade Wilson, in the upcoming film from 20th Century Fox and Marvel Comics. Tentatively titled Deadpool, the movie is slated to hit theaters on February 12th, 2016, just a few months before Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse comes out on the big screen.

Fox officially announced they were moving forward with a Deadpool movie after a pro-Deadpool social media surge occurred this past »

Three months after 20th Century Fox officially handed out a February 12, 2016 release date for Deadpool, the studio is closing their deal with Ryan Reynolds to return as the Merc With the Mouth.

Ryan Reynolds first portrayed Deadpool in the 2009 superhero adventure X-Men Origins: Wolverine, with several fans clamoring for a stand-alone movie ever since its release.

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg revealed in October that Deadpool will be a part of 20th Century Fox's X-Men movie universe. No story details have been released at this time, but fans have been excited for this project ever since test footage leaked onto the internet this summer. No other cast members have been confirmed at this time.

Then the actor was confirmed to take the role in May, and we've just been waiting to see how it all plays out. Well, Deadline has more details with official word that Tatum is officially attached to the film at 20th Century Fox and the script will be written by RoboCop remake scribe Josh Zetumer, based on a treatment from Marvel Comics writer Chris Claremont, the man who created the cool character with Jim Lee back in 1990.

Channing Tatum Promises Different Take on Gambit

16 October 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Fan Art by DeviantArt user Metalblackfae

It's no secret that Channing Tatum is working with Fox Studios and X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner to develop a standalone Gambit  film, and possibly be in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, but there's been no confirmation of that. 

The actor revealed in a previous interview that he would like to "change the superhero movie" with Gambit. Now, in recent interview with MTV the actor says that they are finding a writer and figuring things out. They are also looking to give fans a different and unique take on the character. So it sounds like things are definitely moving forward. He also hints at it being a smaller scale movie. He said,

“I don’t want to give too much away because we don’t know that much right now other than who Gambit is. We really do want to try our hardest to give something fresh. »

15 October 2014 10:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

During the press rounds for "X-Men: Days of Future Past," producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed reports that actor Channing Tatum would take over the role of card-throwing Cajun mutant Remy LeBeau (Gambit) in the "X-Men" franchise. Tatum himself had used other interviews earlier in the year to express a keen interest in the role.

Now, out doing press for this weekend's animated feature "The Book of Life," Tatum himself offered MTV an update on how the proposed solo Gambit film is going. From the sounds of it, the project is still in early stages:

"We're finding a writer and sort of beating it out. We really do want to try our hardest to give something fresh. We're obviously going to go to the saving the world superhero movies eventually, but not for the first one.

We kind of want to introduce this character in a very different way, and when »

Back in May, producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed that Channing Tatum will star as the mystical, card-throwing Cajun mutant Remy LeBeau, a.k.a.

3 October 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Bryan Singer now officially signed on as director, X-Men: Apocalypse is picking up steam ahead of production early in the new year, and producer Simon Kinberg has been speaking to Collider about the latest chapter of Fox’s X-Men franchise, describing it as the “close of a trilogy” for the cast of X-Men: First Class. Here’s what he had to say:

“I will say that [X-Men: Apocalypse] is definitely the close of a trilogy for those First Class characters, which isn’t to say we won’t see them in future movies, hopefully we will, but it’s a completion of an arc for them. I think that the friendship between Erik and Charles, which has always been so integral to the franchise, is something we’re continuing to explore and hopefully deepen with Apocalypse. And the relationship between Beast and Mystique is a really interesting one that we didn »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Will Focus on Beast and Mystique Relationship

3 October 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Producer Simon Kinberg isn't being shy about what we can expect to see in X-Men: Apocalypse. He's already teased potential new characters and revealed how certain continuity issues caused by the shifting of X-Men: Days of Future Past's timeline will be addressed. Speaking with Collider, he now reveals that this next Mutant sequel will return to the strained relationship between Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence). He also touches on how the 80s setting will be utilized, an era that spawned a lot of today's older X-Men fans who grew up with the comic. And most importantly, he reveals that this will be a rather 'fun' outing for our often tortured heroes.

X-Men: Apocalypse will help kick off the summer movie season of 2016 with a late May release date. X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer is confirmed to return yet again for what will be his fourth Mutant adventure, »
