The Deadpool movie, which is expected to be Marvel’s first R-rated feature, has been rumoured for a very long time, but today Fox and Marvel have finally announced a release date for the film.
Deadpool is set to arrive in cinemas 12th February 2016, just fifteen months from now, and it is very much expected that Ryan Reynolds starring. It does seem like a rush job, fifteen months is not a long time for the big budget film these days, and February is usually a fairly slow month (unless you count the UK half term). Plus the film is going to be directed by first time director Tim Miller, so the news is good, but does have its flaws.
Either way, I am sure fans will be breathing a huge sigh of relief at this news.
Fox and Marvel have slotted “Deadpool,” their long-in-development “X-Men” spin-off, for Feb. 12, 2016.
Tim Miller is set to direct. Ryan Reynolds, who portrayed the character in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” has been expected to star for many years, although no deal is in place.
The mercenary character was created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza, first appearing in 1991.
