Sounds like the Deadpool Movie is finally up and running with Tim Miller to direct and Ryan Reynolds (rumored, but only rumored because they haven’t officially signed him yet) to star. He’s great for the role, and even though they fucked it up royally in the Wolverine, hopefully they learned their lesson - mostly because fanboys slammed the movie and the depiction of Deadpool in particular.
What’s really cool, though, is the the internet flexing its muscles to get this movie off the ground. They shot and put together “test footage” that was “leaked” (the same way all those celeb sex tapes were “leaked”) and the internet reaction was enough to convince bigwigs to get off the asses and make the movie.
“It’s interesting to see the power of the Internet. It’s awe-inspiring, actually,” Reynolds told the Niagara Falls Review. ”And it’s neat that Twitter and Facebook and Instagram can move mountains when used in the right way.”
Ya Love to see it. Speaking of, here’s the Deadpool footage, which is awesome.
