Deadpool is the film we never thought we'd see. 20th Century Fox kept the X-Men spinoff in limbo for years, and after his less than auspicious on-screen debut (more on that below), things didn't look good for Marvel Comics' 'Merc with a Mouth'.
Deadpool will be released on February 12, 2016.
X-Men: Origins will be swept under the carpet
As we mentioned, part of the problem with bringing Deadpool to the big screen was the royal mess Fox made of his first appearance. Reynolds appeared as mercenary Wade Wilson - that's Deadpool to you - in 2009's Hugh Jackman-starring X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the project that spectacularly failed to launch a solo movie spinoff series for Marvel's mighty mutants.
Out of the various criticisms levelled against the film, one that kept coming »
Not even a movie as bad as X-Men Origins: Wolverine could tarnish fans love for Marvel Comic’s Deadpool, and the fact that only Ryan Reynolds could bring the wonderfully irreverent Merc with a Mouth. After an insanely long time in Development Hell, production finally began in March, and Reynolds has been keeping us up to speed, through the medium of Twitter, on the production. Now, filming has come to an end, and Reynolds has again marked the occasion, this time with a great callback to The Shawshank Redemption. #Deadpool has been a privilege to make. And we got to make this film because of you. Gonna eat a samich now. #wrapped pic.twitter.com/AMW68HD2BI — Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) May 29, 2015 With director Tim Miller working from a script by Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool hits cinemas February 12th 2016. »

I’ve been following Deadpool’s development for so long that part of me still has trouble believing it exists, and exists with the team we wanted: Ryan Reynolds, director Tim Miller, and from a screenplay by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Filming has now wrapped on Deadpool, and Reynolds has sent out a tweet to mark the occasion with this image: [caption id="attachment_465463" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via Ryan Reynolds[/caption] It would be very Deadpool to put “Brooks Was Here…So was Deadpool”, but I’m willing to meet the character halfway on his graffiti. Reynolds has been sharing photos throughout filming, and I’ll be curious to see if he keeps checking in with fans, or if he’ll be too busy with other projects. Usually, I don’t care for being inundated with marketing, but I’m willing to make an exception for Deadpool. Deadpool opens February 12, 2016, and »

The image below (which we've had to split into two unfortunately) is featured in this month's edition of Empire Magazine, and as you can see, it gives us yet another great look at Ryan Reynolds in costume as Deadpool. This hopefully means Empire will have a cover story on the movie in an upcoming issue as we still don't know a huge amount about the movie despite a ton of set photos finding their way online recently. Ant-Man took this month's cover, and you can see that Here. Written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller and set to be released on February 12th, 2016.

There are very, very few times we would ever even consider posting anything from "Extra", but this is one of those times. "Extra" host Mario Lopez traveled up to Vancouver to visit the set of the Deadpool movie, which is currently filming, and sat down for a one-on-one chat with star Ryan Reynolds. Yes, this sounds cheesy, but because it's Deadpool and he breaks the fourth wall and messes around with everyone, there's some fun elements to this otherwise bland "Extra" segment. It's also cool to see Ryan so excited to be talking about finally making an R-rated Deadpool movie. I'm glad they're embracing the character in all his glory. Deadpool is directed by visual effects veteran Tim Miller, making his feature directing debut, with a script from Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Ryan Reynolds reprises the titular character he originated in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a disfigured and »

Ryan Reynolds has taken to Instagram to reveal a brand new image from Deadpool. It doesn't reveal too much about the movie and is a little less humurous than previous efforts, but that makes it no less awesome! The photo was clearly taken when they were shooting on that overpass in Vancouver, and this is a really fantastic shot of the popular Marvel character in action. Stuck the landing. With my mouth. A photo posted by Ryan Reynolds (@vancityreynolds) on May 11, 2015 at 11:13am Pdt Written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller and set to be released on February 12th, 2016.

Ryan Reynolds is still in his hometown of Vancouver shooting his superhero adaptation Deadpool, which is currently slated for release on February 12, 2016. Unlike the first few weeks of shooting, we haven't seen too many photos and videos from the set lately, but for those craving a new look at the Merc With the Mouth, Ryan Reynolds has you covered. The actor tweeted out a new photo in celebration of today's Mother's Day holiday, where Deadpool is seen actually delivering a baby. Is there anything this superhero can't do?
Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool . Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. »
Remember New Coke? If you do, the ’80s called and they want their jokes back. But as a reminder, in April of 1985, just over 30 years ago this week, Coca-Cola, one of the longest surviving American companies who had successfully dominated the market with a time-tested product, had decided that to stave off the rise of Pepsi in the Cola wars, they would rebrand their classic fizzy drink to New Coke. New Coke hit the shelves April 23, and though the sweeter flavor won out in blind taste tests, human psychology practically dictates that it’s not the product that’s inside the can but the label that’s outside the can that most determines a person’s liking. The product rollout was a huge blunder, and Coca-Cola eventually reverted to Coke Classic.
If you thought that sounds like it could make a fascinating documentary, or perhaps an interesting comedy, then you’re in luck. »

Deadpool writers have already lined up their next project. Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, the genius scribes behind the highly anticipated Deadpool, have recently signed up to write a movie about the disastrous story of New Coke. According to Deadline, writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese are moving from the X-Men spin-off movie Deadpool to the upcoming movie based on the story of Coca-Cola.s New Coke flop. They also will put their own money behind the film. The movie, which will be based on Thomas Oliver's book The Real Coke, The Real Story, will reportedly be a period piece set during the .80s and explore the perceived threat that No. 2 rival Pepsi presented after a successful marketing campaign called the "Pepsi Challenge," particularly Coca-Cola.s reaction. Thomas Oliver is the business reporter from the Atlanta Journal Constitution who covered the introduction of New Coke into the market and »
The Real Coke
"Zombieland" and "Deadpool" scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese are reportedly penning a feature about the disastrous launch of New Coke thirty years ago. The drink attempted to adjust classic Coke's secret formula for a younger generation - it performed so badly it threatened the original soft drink's market leadership.
The scribes have optioned the Thomas Oliver book "The Real Coke, The Real Story" and will pen this 1980s period piece which will also deal with how No. 2 rival Pepsi launched the 'Pepsi Challenge' that led to corporate panic at Coke. [Source: Deadline]
The Dukes Of Oxy
Angel Elgort is being lined up to star in a film version about the Rolling Stone article "Dukes Of Oxy" at New Line. The article deals with a pair of teen high school wrestlers from Florida who built a multimillion-dollar business smuggling OxyContin and other painkillers.

The writers of the fan favourite Zombieland and the now-shooting Deadpool are to tackle something completely different for their next project. Duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick will pen a movie that revolves around the Coca-Cola launch of ‘New Coke’ in the 1980s.
The planned project will revolved around the famous drinks company’s attempt to relaunch the brand in 1985 with a brand new, improved taste ‘for a new generation,’ rather than stick to its market leading secret formula that it produced since its launch nearly 100 years before. It’s safe to say said new launch didn’t go down well with Coke drinkers.
According to Deadline, Wernick and Reese have used their own cash to option Thomas Oliver’s book The Real Coke, The Real Story, the property on which their screenplay will be based.
The announcement comes just days after the 30th anniversary of the disasterous marketing event. »

Exclusive: Paul Wernick & Rhett Reese, the scribes behind Zombieland and the X-Men spinoff Deadpool, next will craft a movie about the disastrous launch of New Coke, perhaps the worst product introduction since the Edsel. Last week marked the 30th anniversary of when Coca-Cola veered from the secret formula that had been around since the 1890s to unveil what the company hoped would be a new and improved drink for a younger generation. It went so flat it imperiled its… »
Principal photography on Deadpool is still very much underway on Vancouver's Georgia Viaduct, where photos and footage from throughout week show stars Ryan Reynolds, Ed Skrein, Brianna Hildebrand, as well as the unknown motion-capture performer for Colossus all back on the set. While footage via Torry Courte Film shows a fully-costumed Reynolds and his handy stunt double performing car-smashing and break-dancing(?) stunts earlier this week, recent photos further hint that this sequence is at least inspired by, if not a complete recreation of, the leaked test footage despite an executive producer stating otherwise. Furthermore, additional photos from the Daily Mail feature one of the aforementioned Deadpool stars with quite a stab wound. With that said, the potential spoiler is in the very last set of photos below, so scroll down at your own risk. @ColTighsflask And Colossus will be even bigger! — Rhett Reese (@RhettReese) April 15, 2015 Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, »
This fan-made Deadpool poster is so good that Ryan Reynolds thinks it deserves an award. What do you think? There should be an award for fan art. pic.twitter.com/4Kge5FhoWk — Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) April 12, 2015 That's also a great tagline for the film. "With Great Power comes Great Irresponsibility." Could Fox go with something like that or could Sony/Marvel sue? Deadpool is scheduled for release in North American theaters on February 12, 2016. Tim Miller directs from a screenplay penned by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. »
Ever since production on Deadpool began, we've gotten little tidbits of information on the Marvel film from 20th Century Fox starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with the Mouth. The first photo showed off Deadpool in an alluring pose, Reynolds revealed the film is R-rated, and co-star Ed Skrein confirmed that he's playing the villain Ajax. And now we have another glimpse at the forthcoming comic book flick, and it reveals a character that comic book fans should be excited to see. Brianna Hildebrand plays Negasonic Teenage Warhead, a telepath with precognitive abilities, named after a song by Monster Magnet. Look now! Here's the new photo from Tim Miller's Deadpool from Ryan Reynolds' Twitter: Negasonic Teenage Wat-The-Shit?! pic.twitter.com/sUCS7u7BBR— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) April 11, 2015 Deadpool is directed by visual effects veteran Tim Miller, making his feature directing debut, with a script from Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. »

Filming is now underway in Vancouver on the much anticipated "Deadpool" film which we happily learned last week will definitely be rated R. Today, some new photos from the set have shown up and show something fans will be familiar with.
Remember that leaked test footage from a while back with an entirely CG Deadpool getting involved in a big action sequence where he leaps from overpass directly into an SUV full of bad guys? The new photos taken around the Georgia Viaduct seem to suggest that sequence is being reshot but with Ryan Reynolds in full costume this time. Head to Just Jared for the full gallery.

We've already seen a photo of star Ryan Reynolds in his full costume, and a video of him in action, confirming that the film will be R rated. We've also seen the actors on set.

Now, posting on his personal Instagram account, Rob Liefeld goes onto praise the R rating, the rest of the cast, and the talented filmmaking team behind this superhero adaptation. He also offers up his take on what makes this movie different from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He calls it a »
