Deadpool Co-Creator Rob Liefeld Says Solo Spin-Off Is Likely

Despite the controversy surrounding the Weapon XI character in the upcoming “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” insiders keep dropping hints that Ryan Reynolds will reprise his mercenary role in a standalone “Deadpool” movie, if fans pull through at the box office.

Last week via Twitter, Liefeld posted that he had spoken with “Wolverine” producers who told him there were “definite plans to spin off Deadpool if the box office works.” This was bolstered by the fact that the film’s re-shoots included more screen time for Reynolds as Wilson, who Liefield mentioned, “was chosen specifically with the idea that he would carry [a possible] solo film.”

Ryan Reynolds Wants to Take on Cable in a Deadpool Movie

“There are all kinds of villains,” Reynolds told MTV News during a “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” press event. “You’ve got Black Tom — all kinds of characters that you could really make great use of.”

Black Tom, the villainous cousin of the heroic mutant known as Banshee, is just one of many bad guys that could find their way into a ‘Deadpool’ solo film. But there’s at least one specific character that Reynolds would love to see go against Deadpool — the futuristic soldier called Cable.

Deadpool Spin Off In The Works

This is no surprise to most of us, but rumor is Fox is vamping up a Deadpool spin off.

No shocking news with this bit of information. We all knew it was coming. We all just sat there and hoped Wolverine would somewhat stay true to its source but unfortunately that was just not the case. So the next question is: What will fox do to Deadpool, if he were to get his own film? Well, those answers are still somewhat unclear. What is clear is that Fox is planning a Deadpool spin off with Ryan Reynolds. At least they are keeping Ryan, he did a great job with what he had to work with in X-Men Origins Wolverine. It wasn't his fault the Writers and Producers muddled everything up. Fox needs to show Deadpool with his mask on. I cannot stress this point enough.

'Deadpool' spinoff in works at Fox

Fresh off the muscular performance of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" at the boxoffice, Fox has thrown into development a spinoff featuring Deadpool, the wise-cracking mercenary played in the film by Ryan Reynolds.

Reynolds is attached to reprise the character for what for now is simply being called "Deadpool." Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel Studios would act as producers.

UPDATE: Marvel Officially Announces Deadpool Movie

After weeks of rumor and speculation, Marvel Comics has officially announced that Ryan Reynolds's X-MEN ORIGNS: WOLVERINE character, DEADPOOL, will be getting a solo film.

The solo film, possibly titled X-Men Origins: Deadpool, was originally announced as possibly being in the works as early as May 6th. Today, however, Marvel Comics updated the article with official confirmation that the film is going into development.

The Deadpool film will be produced by Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel, with Reynolds reprising the role of Wade Wilson/Deadpool, the "Merc with the Mouth." The film is expected to explore Deadpool's origins and motivations

Rob Liefield On Deadpools Movie Treatment

What was the Image Comics co-founder's reaction to Deadpool’s first appearance on the big screen...

“I have a scale, with worst possible interpretation of a character being Halle Berry as Catwoman, to best possible interpretation of a character being Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Ron Perlman as Hellboy, Patrick Stewart as Professor X, or Christian Bale as Batman,” Liefeld told MTV News. “I would put Deadpool, in this inception, much closer to the side where they got it right.”

Liefeld praised the movie’s version of Deadpool as being true to his initial vision for the wisecracking mercenary — and explained why the character audiences saw at the end of the film isn’t actually that far off.

“When I created Deadpool, the entire backstory that was pitched was that he was the junk left over from a bad Weapon X experiment,” Liefeld explained. “When I look at the film, there’s no reason he can’t go and become that guy I created.”

However, that’s not to say that director Gavin Hood and the film’s writers got off without any criticism from Liefeld.

“Look, katanas coming out of the hand? Not a fan. But you get over it,” he admitted. “Do I believe Deadpool will be shooting optic blasts out of his eyes down the road? No, I don’t believe he will.”

New Light Shed On The Typhoid Mary Rumor

"Thanks to MutantNinjaLoungeSinger for following up on the recent Katee Sackhoff as Typhoid rumor. MNLS points out that, while the character originated with and is strongly linked to 'Daredevil', she's also recently been a sidekick of sorts to 'Deadpool'. Furthermore she's shown up in disguise as recent "black ops" member of 'The Avengers'.

We know 20th Century Fox likely holds the film rights for the character as they previously utilized her in 'Elektra', so it seems less likely she'd appear in the 'Avengers' flick. Fox seems hot-to-trot on 'Deadpool' after the buzz he created in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' so that could be a very real possibility."

Ryan Reynolds actively working on Deadpool

Within days of X-Men Origins: Wolverine being released 20th Century Fox announced that they were developing a Deadpool spin-off, with Ryan Reynolds back playing the Merc with the Mouth. Since then we haven’t heard anything more about it, however Reynolds recently spoke to HitFix and it seems he is pretty involved creatively.


“Well, I’m intimately involved with it. We’re just trying to break a story right now and figure out who the villain is going to be and all that stuff. But, it’s going to be just like the comic books. I’m gonna have a messed up face and you may see some flashbacks of Wade earlier in his life, but primarily what you see is what you get in the comics and that’s the goal. And there is no better place to draw material from then the comics which are incredible.”

Will We See Cable In The Deadpool Spinoff?

When asked if Cable will appear in the yet untitled Deadpool movie Reynolds replies: "We'll see. That is all being discussed, "I'm hoping Cable will be in it. Look, I've made no secret that I love that character."

Reynolds was more positive, however, about two other X-Men characters showing there ugly mugs: villains Ajax and Black Tom Cassidy. "I also love some of the more preliminary characters at the beginning of the series. I like Ajax — that's an easier character to put in. And Black Tom," he states. "I think there's a lot of different villains (we are considering); you could do a whole bunch of villains in (the first solo Deadpool film), or you could just have Deadpool going up against one guy. We'll see."

Ryan Reynolds Confirms HUGE New Facts About the Deadpool Movie Spin-Off!

This from an exclusive story on MTV's Splash Page:-

“I love it, because I get to be involved,” Reynolds said of his role in the spin-off film. “And I’m such a huge fan of the character. I get to be the authentication police, in a weird way,” said Reynolds "To their credit — the studio’s credit — they want to make an authentic ‘Deadpool’ movie; they want to make it as close to the source material as possible.”

The actor also told MTV that he and the studio have already agreed to some key terms. “He’s going to be the Merc with the Mouth, we’re going to give all those answers that everyone wants,” Reynolds explained. “He’s going to have the scarred-up face, he’s going to be in the suit — and, it’s going to be incredible. Right now, it’s just a question of trying to figure out what is the spine of the story,”.

'Deadpool' is most wanted 'X-Men' tie-in

Deadpool is the "most wanted" X-Men spinoff project, suggests an online poll on MTV's online comics section Splash Page.

According to the web survey, 30% of readers chose the recently-announced Ryan Reynolds project as their most-anticipated, giving it the edge over a follow-up to this year's X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

A sequel to Logan's solo outing accounted for 28% of the votes, followed by Josh Schwartz's X-Men: First Class with 21%. David Goyer's X-Men Origins: Magneto finished bottom of the pile with 20%.

MTV reported that "a fairly large number of voters" took part in the survey, but several readers were unhappy with the lack of options available, leaving comments requesting Cyclops and Gambit spinoffs.

Deadpool Will Break The Fourth Wall In His Solo Movie

When asked about this by Empire magazine today, Reynolds said:

“Break the fourth wall? Oh yeah, he’s got to. I want to see him break the Great Wall,". And as for his decapitated head at the end of Wolverine, well, “that we won’t speak of."

Ok! As for more updates on the Deadpool spin-off from Reynolds, he adds: “The studio's working on a script and trying to find a director. The main goal is to make sure it stays close to the source material." And as for the fans that felt jilted by Deadpool's first movie appearance.. "I'm one of them. I've always been a fan, at least for the last eight or nine years. I feel a bit of validation because I knew going into Wolverine that there's a huge fanbase for this and I don't think anyone else did."

I have heard enough of Reynolds passion for this character to believe he genuinely wants this movie to be as faithful as possible..unfortunately studios and directors don't always have the same enthusiasm! Lets hope his voice is heard on this.

Agreed and it wouldn't be the first time that an actor has pulled double DC/Marvel duty. Halle Berry was Storm and Catwoman, while James Marsden
was Cyclops and Richard White (Lois Lane's fiancé in Superman Returns). Also there wouldn't be any scheduling conflicts, since their at different stages of development. GL is ready to film in Jan 2010, while Deadpool doesnt even have a script yet.

Ryan Reynolds Isn't Fazed By Playing Hal Jordan And Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds is not the first actor to portray characters from two different comic universes(Halle Berry, James Marsden, Mickey Rourke) but hes certainly portraying two of the most prolific! And appearing in both movies with such a small space of time between them is definitely a first.

But Starring in two competing films in 2011 doesn't seem to faze Reynolds, however, especially because the properties come from opposites sides of comics' Big Two publishers.

"There's no rule that says you can't play two different characters in two different comic-book universes," Reynolds told Entertainment Weekly. Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld pointed out Reynolds' comment on his Twitter site.

Depending on the shooting schedules of "Deadpool" and "Green Lantern", we may well see Reynolds doing publicity for both at the same time! And not only that..these may not be the last comic characters he plays either, judging by his keen interest..

"There are so many interesting comic book characters out there," Reynolds said. "I would love to do others."

Deadpool a Reboot?

IGN caught up with producer Lauren Shuler Donner yesterday at a promotional event for the upcoming Blu-ray release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and -- of course -- we had to pick her brain about the proposed spin-off film based on the character of Deadpool.

Donner was playing her cards pretty close to the vest, but she did let loose with one tidbit: Deadpool will likely be a reboot of the character from his appearance in Wolverine.

"We'd kind of reboot it and make it the Deadpool that's in the comics," the producer told us, while adding that Wolverine costar Ryan Reynolds is still set to reprise the role despite his involvement with Warner Bros./DC's Green Lantern film.

"Yes, he would [return for it]," she said. "I'd like to see Deadpool, so we'll see where we are moving forward on that. I'm hoping to make a movie out of Deadpool."

Marvel Movies of the Future!


Deadpool
Release Date: 2011
Development Status: It's not quite on the fast track, but it's getting there. Ryan Reynolds will sport Hal Jordan's ring before he will reprise his role as the Merc with the Mouth in this X-Men Origins: Wolverine spin-off. Recently, long-time X-Men producer Lauren Shuler-Donner revealed that the character's depiction in Wolverine will get – all together now – the reboot treatment, seeing as how the last time we saw Deadpool his head was spiraling away from his body in free fall, while firing Cyclops' optic blasts.

We already wiped the Deadpool-as-Weapon-11 bitter taste from our fanboy pallets, and we're glad to see Fox getting on the ball. The long-time studio home to Xavier's mutants will also release Deadpool's first solo mission. Outside of Reynolds and Donner, no other names have been officially reported to write or direct the story. So what is the story shaping up to be? Reynolds revealed that Cable is most likely not in the first movie, but we may see Ajax and Black Tom appear as villains. Also, expect that mouth of his to get a serious workout, with the character breaking the fourth wall on occasion.

Reynolds recently assured fans that he is mulling over story ideas with writers (but which ones?) and will serve as "authentication police" over the character's treatment – and yes, we will learn how he got those scars.

X-Men Movie Franchise Updates

Empire interviewed X-Producer Lauren Shuler Donner and got some detailed news on what's in store for the coming X-Men franchise...


On Deadpool

"I want to ignore the version of Deadpool that we saw in Wolverine and just start over again. Reboot it. Because this guy talks, obviously, and to muzzle him would be insane.

I don't see it as a problem that Ryan [Reynolds] is also playing Green Lantern. I mean, look at Harrison Ford - he was in Stars Wars and Indiana Jones at the same time and everyone was fine with that. Green Lantern could not be more different to Wade Wilson. Green Lantern is a guy who finds a ring and is thrust into this world, much like Spider-Man. Wade Wilson is a guy who unfortunately gets cancer, and volunteers for a test that will give him healing powers. He is a bad ass, a wise-cracking mercenary, who will go out and kill anyone for money. But the thing about him is that, underneath it all, and he wouldn't want you to know this, sometimes he's not such a bad ass after all. Sometimes he does the right thing.

It's going to be a dark, snarky, very funny movie. It's the hardest story to tell, I think. There's no clear cut villain - though you do have great baddies from the comic-books like Black Tom, Slayback, Blind Al and the Weasel. Blind Al is this blind woman in his house, who he abuses and mocks… it's terrible. But you find out that she was a convict who did something terrible and he saved her from execution. So he lets her live in his house and she looks after him, but they both torture each other. Anyway, there are good stories and we're figuring out which ones to incorporate.

We're right in the thick of talking to writers right now, and hopefully by November we'll have decided who's going to do it. We need someone really imaginative because we want to do some really innovative, ambitious stuff. Ryan's mentioned this in an interview already but there are parts where he's going to break the fourth wall and talk directly to the audience in the cinema. We have to work out how to do that. I don't know that Fox will agree with all our decisions, but we'll see!"

Actor Ryan Reynolds, the man that fans everywhere are considering the current torch-bearer for the the future of comic book movies, finally opens up about starring as two iconic characters from competing comic book companies: DC Comics' Hal Jordan/Green Lantern and Marvel Comics' Wade Wilson/Deadpool!

Reynolds told MTV that 2009 has been one of "the most unbelievable" years of his life:

"Starting with setting some goals that I didn't think would be possible several years before, running a marathon, getting married -- the year has been incredible, all across the board. The fact that Green Lantern is something that's about to get going full-steam pretty soon, and then there is Deadpool on the horizon as well. If you asked me if this would be happening three years ago, I would have kick-f---ed you back to where you were from."

EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Reynolds On 'Deadpool' Writer Hunt And 'Dream Director' Quentin Tarantino

Last month, "Deadpool" and "Green Lantern" star Ryan Reynolds gave us an update on both films and offered even more reason why he's the actor MTV is most thankful for this year. However, that wasn't all the actor had to say about the solo debut of Marvel's mouthy mercenary, Wade Wilson (a.k.a. Deadpool).

Not only did Reynolds tell MTV News about the process of finding a screenwriter for the "Deadpool" movie, he also offered up some thoughts on his "dream director" for the project.

"You think directors for a movie like this and you immediately picture [Quentin] Tarantino or somebody like that," Reynolds told MTV News. "Obviously Tarantino is a guy that likes to direct his own material, so there's a good chance he wouldn't be the guy. We all have our lists of dream directors."

Ryan Reynolds Talks Deadpool!

In this article you will receive the latest word on the Deadpool Suit, the Deadpool Trailer, and Ryan also sheds light on what it is like being cast as both Deadpool and The Green Lantern!

In regard's to the Deadpool suit, Reynolds responds when MTV asked him if he has seen or tried on the infamous costume: "No, there's no Deadpool suit that I've tried on,"

In response to the upcoming Deadpool trailer: "I've told Fox already that the only way there's ever gong to be a 'Deadpool' trailer is if Deadpool makes his own trailer," he laughed. "He needs to be talking to the movie audience ... with the movie trailer voice: 'In a world... gone mad... one man... must stand alone...'"

Sounds good to me. Reynolds off course is playing this one pretty close to the chest, Ryan went on to say:

"You want to find the best version of what's in the comic books, but like a lot of [characters], Deadpool has one of the more inconsistent narratives," he told MTV News. "It's tough, because the series has been dropped and reopened so many times. You really have to pick and choose so many of the best elements and cobble those together and create the movie of your dreams." "Oddly enough, I think the suit is the easiest task, " he added. "It's such a cool-looking suit, too. It's just deciding on the material and stuff, but that comes into play once you get a script."

A Duo of Writers Penning the Deadpool Script?

Only yesterday, MTV posted a snipppet of a recent interview with actor Ryan Reynolds in which he discussed X-Men Origins: Deadpool, Reynolds' solo spin-off of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In the interview, Reynolds said that the studio was "just right now" making a decision about who would pen the script.

Well, if the source who leaked to Devin Faraci of CHUD can be believed, the decision has already been made and it won't be a writer, but writers. Faraci claims that his source told him that Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writing duo behind Zombieland, have been signed on to pen the adventures of the "Merc with a Mouth."

I can't wait for this, Ryan sounds like he is going to be extremely true to Deadpool's nature!

i think the zombieland writers are perfect for this movie!fox....hire them...hire them now!
and ryan reynolds is probably deadpools biggest fan so of course he plans to make it true to character.i think he only did wolverine and went along with wat they did to deadpool because he knew it would get him a spinoff movie where HE could make decisions on it.

I thought it was pretty good. He was great in the small amount of time he was onscreen.

Deadpool actually didn't appear in that movie. There was only some stuff in the beginning with Wade Wilson.

Deadpool Writer Discusses Ryan Reynolds' Dedication

From MTV Splashpage: Deadpool writers converse with Ryan Reynolds regularly

“We’re outlining it pretty seriously right now,” explained Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick writers of “Zombieland,” “We’re in the early stages.”

“We just absolutely adore the character and the comic,” explained Wernick. “And tonally, it’s right up our alley. He’s the unstable, smart-ass, self deprecating guy — and they say write what you know"

Writers express their excitement on the Deadpool project and have been developing with Deadpool star himself - Ryan Reynolds. They say that its a collaborative process, and they say Reynolds is smart and passionate about the character.

“What’s great about Ryan is that he’s been the keeper of the Deadpool flame for many years, he’s loved the character since forever; he lives it and breathes it,” Reese said of some of the specific ideas Reynolds has brought up to them. “We’re a little newer to Deadpool, although we’ve done a bit of catching up. One of the nice things about working with Ryan is that he tonally gets it — if we ever do something that is off the Deadpool path, or if it doesn’t feel like Deadpool, he catches it.”

This.........


In response to the upcoming Deadpool trailer: "I've told Fox already that the only way there's ever gong to be a 'Deadpool' trailer is if Deadpool makes his own trailer," he laughed. "He needs to be talking to the movie audience ... with the movie trailer voice: 'In a world... gone mad... one man... must stand alone...

........would be awesome!

But he's not directing Predators.

I do agree with him being hit and miss, as I haven't enjoyed his new stuff. I'd be more interested in watching El Mariatchi or even the original Spy Kids than Planet Terror or Sin City. With him doing Deadpool, I'm not sure how to react to it in all honesty.

Robert Rodriguez Talks Deadpool

Robert Rodriguez has just finished Predators and is now busy promoting Machete which stars Danny Trejo. MTV caught up with him to see where his involvement is in Deadpool.

"They sent me a script to read, [but] I've been really swamped with this other stuff," Rodriguez said. "I've not decided whether ... anything I do would be after 'Spy Kids' — that gives some breathing room. So whether or not I would help develop or not is the question right now."

The script is still being worked on but Rodriguez likes the early version that he has seen. "It was really good. It wasn't supposed to be sent out, it was one of those early drafts, they were probably like 'Robert just finished 'Predators,' let's see what he thinks at this early stage' ... I got an early sneak peek at it."

The director is a big fan of Ryan Reynolds being heavily involved with the writers and confirms Reynolds' Deadpool will break the fourth wall and talk to the audience. It would appear that all the stars would have to align just right for Rodriguez to helm this movie if it is to stay on course for a possible 2012 debut.

Ryan Reynolds calls the Deadpool movie "emotional filth" (http://io9.com/5639529/ryan-reynolds-calls-the-deadpool-movie-emotional-filth-huzzah)


[W]e won't be subjected to the horrifying version of Deadpool presented in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine film, and, yes, there will be fourth-wall breaking:

It goes in such a different direction than a superhero movie usually goes. It's a nasty piece of work. It's just based in so much emotional filth, completely. It's like Barfly if it were a superhero movie. It sort of treads into the world of an emotionally damaged person. I always say that Deadpool is a guy in a highly militarized shame spiral. [...] It's so different than the superhero movies to date, it departs so far from that.

Every instance of Deadpool I have ever come across has made me hate the character. I'll probably end up seeing the movie but if the trailer is any indication, it will be a chore.
