Ryan Reynolds to headline 'Wolverine' spin-off 'Deadpool'

Posted on

Deadpool is getting his own X-Men spin-off, according to Variety. Ryan Reynolds, who plays the Marvel superhero in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, will resurrect Wade Wilson, a cancer-stricken soldier who becomes an indestructible renegade mutant after submitting to the military’s top-secret Weapon X experiment. At the end of Wolverine, Deadpool is seen rising from the rubble and whispering “Shhh” to audiences.

Fox is reportedly simultaneously moving forward on three other X-Men projects, including a Wolverine sequel.
