There are a few things we know for certain about 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Deadpool film – it will feature a number of mutant characters we haven’t seen on the big screen before, as well as new versions of characters we have seen. But will the oldest of old favorites, Wolverine, make an appearance?
“God I hope so, that would be really nice,” star Ryan Reynolds tells News.com.au. “I dunno, we’ll see. It seems like he’s open to it, but it’s gonna be more of a scheduling issue than anything else.”
Jackman has previously confirmed that the upcoming Third Wolverine film would be his last go as the character, but since Deadpool opens in theaters over a year before that film, an appearance wouldn’t stifle those plans. Do you want to see Wolverine appear in Deadpool? Sound off below!
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Ryan Reynolds stars as the title character alongside TJ Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax. The film will also feature the mutant Colossus, though Daniel Cudmore has confirmed he will not appear as the character.
Tim Miller is directing the movie from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Confirmed to be rated R, Deadpool is scheduled for a release on February 12, 2016.
