Never in a million years did we think we’d be excited for a Deadpool solo movie — not after what they did to the character in the horrible misstep that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine (#neverforget). But here we are, years later, with Ryan Reynolds back to properly bring his charisma to the Merc With a Mouth, who will actually have a (masked) mouth this time around. After giving us our first look at Reynolds in full Deadpool costume a couple of days ago, Fox has officially revealed the logo for the upcoming X-Men spinoff film.

It’s fitting that Deadpool’s main super-power is his accelerated healing factor; you just can’t kill this guy. For years, they talked about making a Deadpool movie featuring Ryan Reynolds (who played a largely unrecognizable version of the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine). For years, Deadpool languished in development; long enough to kill most projects. But that damn healing factor kept Deadpool alive.

‘Self/Less’ Trailer: Ben Kingsley Turns Into Ryan Reynolds, Sci-Fi Chaos Ensues

The first Selfless trailer proposes a question that many science fiction movies have asked in the past. If you could have a second chance at life in a new body, would you take it? From John Frankenheimer’s Seconds to James Cameron’s Avatar, this is well-travelled territory for the genre. But in an age where scientists are actually studying how we can transfer our consciousness into computers (by 2045, no less), this kind of sci-fi plot suddenly seems a whole lot creepier.

Deadpool would seem like a character who's difficult to love. He's got some serious scarring, he's mentally insane and he's constantly talking to people who aren't there. But, this is Hollywood and Ryan Reynolds needs someone to fall in love with in the Deadpool movie. Enter Gotham star Morena Baccarin who has joined the upcoming superhero movie as Wade Wilson's love interest.

There Will Be A New Colossus in ‘Deadpool’

Last week, The Hollywood Reporter reported (hence their name) that the cast was starting to come together for Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool movie. Haywire star Gina Carano joined the film as a mutant named Angel Dust, while it was also revealed that the character of Colossus would appear as well. No actor was given for that role, and I’d originally assumed the part would probably be played by Daniel Cudmore, who first filled the oversized boots of the Russian, metal-skinned mutant in X2 before appearing again in X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past. But now Cudmore has ruined that prediction on Twitter:

‘Deadpool’ Adds Gina Carano and Colossus to Cast

Former mixed martial artist Gina Carano made a major splash in Hollywood with her debut film, Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire, where she was cast as a butt-kicking spy in a stripped-down, throwback action flick. The movie was cool and she was great in it, but it didn’t really launch her in the way Haywire fans wanted. Carano should be mixing it up with Jason Statham or Scott Adkins — heck, she should be the next Jason Statham or Scott Adkins — but it just hasn’t happened yet. She did have a small role in Fast & Furious 6, and she’s supposed to be in the new Kickboxer remake/reboot/rewhatever but she hasn’t come close to topping Haywire yet, where she beat the holy hell out of Michael Fassbender and choked out Ewan McGregor and was generally 110 percent awesome.

Ryan Reynolds Teases His ‘Deadpool’ Costume

Ryan Reynolds has been trying to get a proper ‘Deadpool’ movie off the ground ever since he helped botch the character in the deplorable ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine.’ Yeah, he says he has a genuine affinity for the character, but he also has to appease the ever-fickle movie gods, who punished him for his earlier comic book movie transgressions by putting him in ‘Green Lantern.’ Making a ‘Deadpool’ movie is how he restores order to the universe. Anyway, Reynolds took to Twitter to share our first glimpse of the Merc With a Mouth’s costume and even in this early state, it’s a significant improvement over the previous big screen version of the character.
