There has been talks about a spin-off Deadpool movie for quite some time, since the release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which to be fair left a lot of fans disappointed (myself included). It’s been revealed in a recent interview Ryan Reynold’s did with Total Film Magazine that he is still onboard to star as Wade Wilson; however that being said you can see within his interview he does come across as a little bit frustrated with the whole situation.

The character knows he’s a comic-book character, he knows he’s in a film, he knows who the executives are at the studio making the movie. In the current iteration of the script, Deadpool is aware of the Wolverine movie. He doesn’t say anything disparaging about it but he does at one point play with the Deadpool action figure with some curiosity.”[/quote]
Now we all know a script is in existence and it’s done by the incredible duo that brought us Zombieland, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick; and we even have Tim Miller down as director! So why has it taken them so long to even get this movie in motion? Here is hoping with this leak into the media, Reese, Wernick and Miller will shed some new light on the prospects of there being a Deadpool movie.
