    Wolverine's Ryan Reynolds Dives In for Deadpool Spinoff

    This was on local news, as well as on Yahoo! News today.

    Wolverine's Ryan Reynolds Dives In for Deadpool Spinoff


    It's official: The mutants are taking over Hollywood. And we're not talking about the freaks running the studios.

    Following the monster weekend for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and a day after announcing that a Hugh Jackman-powered sequel is in the works, 20th Century Fox has confirmed to E! News that Jackman's costar Ryan Reynolds will be given his own spinoff and potential franchise-launcher as the Marvel Comics antihero Deadpool.

    The 32-year-old Canadian actor, otherwise known as Mr. Scarlett Johansson, will again star as Wade Wilson, a wisecracking, cancer-stricken mercenary who's cured of the disease after undergoing the same Weapon X genetic alteration as Wolverine.

    But along with superhuman powers, enhanced strength and self-regenerating healing powers, the slightly unhinged Deadpool can absorb the abilities of dead and captured mutants.

    Aside from Deadpool and the Wolverine sequel, Fox is also working on an X-Men spinoff focusing on Ian McKellen's villainous Magneto and another dubbed X-Men: First Class, which is being written by The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz.

    I kind of figured that with the Deadpool end-of-credits scene with Wolverine. And the other ending is setup for the Wolverine sequel which was announced yesterday.

    And the announcent on Monday May 11 will be a Star Trek sequel.

    Angels and Demons sequel? Already announced too.

    Terminator sequel(s)? Check

    Transformers 3? probably already in pre-production.

    Anything that brings in the fanboys $$

    I honestly didn't know DeadPool was that popular to rate his own movie. I mean....wasn't he always a "backburner" Xman?
