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?

After Millar was announced to be Fox's Whedon, this was the movie I've most been looking forward to. I'm confident that production will start by the time the video game is out.

Nothing majorly new but I am glad it is still in development. Hopefully it is not connected to the Wolverine Origins movie!

Wait, wait wait. Why does Fox have the rights to Deadpool? He's not an X-Man-

See? Even Beast admits it.

Ugh, fox. Seriously give all the rights characters (X-Men, Wolverine, Deadpool, Fantastic Four, etc.) to Marvel Studios/Disney! Fox needs to let them go.

I don't really like Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. But I'd still like to see a Deadpool movie.

I saw that Fox was doing it and just died a little inside. Mark another superhero movie down as crap. I only say so because all of their superhero movies were crap.

Doesn't really sound like the film is any closer to being made. Obviously they're going to say the script is amazing, but all the begging and pleading isn't a good sign.

I hope Fox goes bankrupt and all of their Marvel licenses revert to Disney.... -.-

Maybe not bankrupt, that's extreme, they've made some fantastic movies. Just not one of those fantastic movies were superhero movies.

Ryan Reynolds is nice to look at but I do not see him as Deadpool. It doesn't help that he's a so-so actor.

Ryan Reynolds makes a great Deadpool, in my opinion. I mean, in Origins he was as annoying to the team as in the comics. I don't know man, I hope this movie gets made. I've been wanting to see this happen.

@JonSmith: he's not an X-Man (well that's debatable recently) but he falls under the license due to his connections to wolverine, weapon x, cable, and x-force, which all fall under the X-Men license. It sort of like how quicksilver and scarlet witch are under the x-men license because of magneto and their brief stint on the brotherhood even though they've spent more time with and are more well know as Avengers.

Ryan Reynolds was an awesome Wade Wilson. He had the humor, the skills, the annoyingness to his team. It was awesome. Then they turned him into an abomination that didn't resemble Deadpool in any way.

Wow... No one answered the question of what they would like to see in the movie... So many critics...

Anyway, I hope that he breaks the 3/4th wall (whichever it is) either twice in the movie itself or just one time after the credits. He better have those voices!!! He's incomplete without them... And, the story-line should be pretty whack, but not too crazy that it's stupid. I kind of hope that it's not another origins story, but that it just jumps right in to the Mercenary bit with maybe a couple flash backs. The comic DP Origins wasn't bad though, if they want to go off of that.

If the Deadpool movie matches the tone of Kick-Ass since Millar is now Fox's go-to-guy, then this movie will be awesome. 
 
Please let it happen, PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAASEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Hopefully if the video game is a hit, FOX will see just how profitable Deadpool can be and get this movie going.

I'm not much of a Deadpool fan....I find the humour quite juvenile and not really all that funny to be honest.....BUT I always enjoy seeing comic books coming to life on the big screen so I will definately go and watch it.

When was Ryan Reynolds Deadpool?

Given the right people, with the right ideas and intentions, and a Deadpool movie could be a real success. If not done right, Deadpool's famous on-liners and endless dialogue could trip and fall into Schwarzenegger Mr. Freeze cheesiness. I wouldn't disqualify Reynolds since he was of the frowned-upon depiction. Didn't he have the idea to have the teaser trailer of the eventual movie to be narrated by Deadpool himself? Definitely sounds like what Deadpool would do.

Ryan would make a great Deadpool, and he has the right interests of the character at heart. He openly admits to hating the one from Origins, and says he wouldn't do a Deadpool movie unless it's rated R. On top of that he's cut as hell and has great wit. And if you question his acting chops watch the movie 'Buried' which some said deserved an award.

"it's nice to know Ryan Reynolds is still definitely on-board"

RR was terrible as Deadpool, just like he was as Hannibal King. And Green Lantern.

Next.
