More Deadpool Coming in X-Men Origins: Wolverine?!
Most people are probably familiar with the news that X-Men Origins: Wolverine is doing reshoots, or as Hugh Jackman claims, pre-planned shoots taking place in Vancouver for the next few weeks. We've heard that they're reshooting a little less than half of the film, which is actually quite a damn bit. But no one really knows exactly what is taking place up there in Canada or exactly which scenes are being reshot (or added). However, IESB has dropped by with this little scoop today, claiming that most of what they're currently shooting involves Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool along with Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
For those who might not exactly know who Deadpool is, he is a popular Marvel comics character that is often depicted as a mercenary, villain, or anti-hero (as seen above). He first appeared in 1991 and usually only shows up in X-Men comics. Nicknamed the "Merc with a Mouth", Deadpool is a high-tech mercenary known for his wisecracks, black humor, and satirical pop-culture references, and primarily uses two swords for weapons. He was a "product" of the Weapon X program that also created Wolverine and Silver Fox, which is why he shows up in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, along with the rest of the mutants.
We've already seen Deadpool show up very briefly in trailer, and there was once talk of setting up the character for his own spin-off. This rumor, if indeed true, could potentially mean that 20th Century Fox wants to beef up his character in the Wolverine movie and maybe even still setup a spin-off. But then again, we don't know how much he was originally in the movie to begin with and what the fate of the character even is, so who knows what all this means? These reshoots seem to be getting much more interesting every day, so let's hope they mean good things in the end. Who is excited to see more Deadpool?
