“Deadpool” Film ACTUALLY HAPPENING!

Deadpool is a remarkably popular character in Marvel comics, yet beyond his appearance in the so-awful-it-was-largely-retconned-away Wolverine Origins film, he’s somehow managed to avoid the box office. Fans may finally rejoice though, as Variety is reporting that that a Deadpool movie is now officially happening.

How official? Fox has given it a release date of February 12, 2016. That’s pretty darned official.

Tim Miller is slotted to direct, with Lauren Shuler Donner and Kevin Feige producing. Right now there is no word as to whether or not Ryan Reynolds will reprise the role, but that’s definitely the fan favorite choice at the moment.

It’s kind of amazing.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
