DEADPOOL Finally Gets A Release Date

Fans have wondered for quite a long time now if Fox would finally get their planned X-Men spin-off Deadpool off the ground, and now THR report that the Merc with a Mouth will make his (real) big screen debut in 2016. More past the jump.


Hot on the heels of the announcement that Fox have delayed their Fantastic Four reboot, we have some good news for fans of Marvel's Merc with a Mouth. It seems the positive reaction to that leaked test footage didn't go unnoticed by the studio, as they're now moving ahead with the long-gestating X-Men spin-off, Deadpool, which will hit theaters Feb. 12, 2016. Tim Miller is still on board to direct, and though Ryan Reynolds is mentioned as being rumoured to star, the site say no deal has been set. Wade Wilson actually made his first live-action appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and though most fans were happy enough with Reynolds' performance early on, what became of the character at the end of the movie was universally panned. So, Fox have a chance to atone for "Barakapool"..let's just hope they do the right thing and make this the bonkers, R-rated spectacle it needs to be.
