Twentieth Century Fox is finally moving forward with the anticipated Deadpool movie, Entertainment Weekly reports.
The wisecracking antihero might not be as well-known as Batman, Superman or Spider-Man, but Deadpool's postmodern sensibilities — breaking the fourth wall, subverting superhero tropes — is a perfect fit for today's day and age.
Ryan Reynolds will reprise the role of Deadpool, which he first played in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But based on previously leaked test footage of a Deadpool movie, Reynolds will be playing much more enjoyable version of the beloved character than in his X-Men appearance.
The Deadpool movie is currently slated for a Feb. 12, 2016, release — only 17 months away. Are you excited?
