Ok, So Origins Might NOT Suck.


It’s funny, because we were just discussing this actor this weekend at Katsucon…

According to the movie rumor gods over at Ain’t It Cool News, X-Men Origins: Wolverine will have quite the awesome cameo…

Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool.


Here’s what AICN’s Moriarty had to say:

Sounds to me like Marvel is going to pack this one with all sorts of geeky Easter eggs if all of these rumors are true. The Blob would be a lot of fun to see in one of these, and there’s another cameo, one that we can officially confirm now, that sounds to me like a set-up for a possible spin-off.

Anyone up for a little DEADPOOL? CHUD.COM reported at the start of December that the character would show up in the film.

Well, today we can exclusively ask you… how about if Ryan Reynolds is playing him?

This one’s supposed to be a secret, but cat’s out of the bag now, Marvel. And I have to say… I think it sounds like fun. I know this has been a character you guys have been developing for years now (hell, I think I pitched a DEADPOOL film back in 2001), and Reynolds is absolutely the right guy for the job.

Ever since Blade: Trinity hit, I really wanted to see Reynolds starring as the Merc-with-a-mouth, so if this rumor proves true, color me there!

    I’m jealous of Ryan Reynolds. He’s baning Scarlett Johansson! Lucky bastard.

    Reynolds would be awesome. Although, I worry that he won’t get the screen time to shine. There’s rumblings about Gambit in the flick now as well. They might be getting a little heavy with all the muties in there.

    Here’s my worry…a guy like Deadpool, he makes sense, given that he was a past member of Weapon X.

    In the case of Gambit? I have no idea what he’d have to do with anything. I’m all for interesting fan service, but this just seems out of left field.
