'Deadpool' Movie Update

Deadpool's director speaks a bit about the film's status.

The status of the Deadpool movie has been all over the place for quite some time now and the slow progression hasn't exactly been an optimistic sign for fans of the Merc with a Mouth. However, a script was leaked some time ago and it was quite well received. Now there's another reason to hold onto hope because director Tim Miller took to Kickstarter and answered one question about Wade Wilson's cinematic status.

"DEADPOOL: We've turned in an amazing script and done some early tests and visual development that--I'm confident--would get the fans stoked. And Ryan still loves the project. So it's really up to Fox as to whether or not the film happens--all I can do is hope (and beg periodically) that it be allowed to move ahead."

Those are certainly words of inspiration and it's nice to know Ryan Reynolds is still definitely on-board. With Mark Millar joining Fox's Marvel movieverse, it could be possible he'll help this project pick up speed and potentially open the doors to more X-Men related characters.

Us Deadpool fans will just have to wait around to see how things turn out. Hopefully we'll one day get a glimpse of that test footage and hear more updates in the near future. In the meantime, what would you really want to see in a Deadpool movie?
