I know you’ve heard it all before…”another effort to get a Deadpool movie made.” Well, this one’s a little different.
Sure we’ve seen hints at Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but that was just a whole lot of wrong and bad rolled into one. That particular character was played by Ryan Reynolds, who has been the most likely candidate for the joke slinging, head slicing anti-hero. In fact, there has been some leaked test footage of what a potential Deadpool movie might look like (which has since been removed by Fox). The footage was several years old and never really intended for public eyes, merely the money holders at the studios, but that didn’t stop fans from salivating and spreading word that it was coming soon.
Following that leak, there was enough of a fervor from fans that one of the co-writers took to twitter to attempt his own grassroots effort to actually get this movie made. Rhett Reese (also co-writer of Zombieland) sent out this tweet to try to get Fox to listen.
Team Pool needs your official 'vote' of support. Let's break the internet. RETWEET if you would buy a ticket to the DEADPOOL MOVIE.

An interview with Reynolds back in March also indicated that the potential for this to actually be made into a movie is much like the superhero himself – dead one minute, alive the next. So there’s always hope. After all, the guy’s been training for this role with films like Blade: Trinity, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and Green Lantern.
Keep checking back and we’ll be sure to bring you any further developments. Until then, let us know – what superhero would you like to see get their own movie?
