MTV News has received official word that there is also a “Deadpool” solo movie in active development, with “Wolverine” actor Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as Wade Wilson, Marvel’s mutant assassin.
According to a source close to Fox, the “Deadpool” spin-off film will be produced by Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel, and will be “a complete exploration of this unique character — his origins, his emergence as the Merc with the Mouth.” The studio is currently seeking writers for the project.

This is SO EXCITING. Not only the idea of the movie, and Ryan Reynolds, but also that MARVEL is involved, so we actually have a chance at SOMETHING GOOD.
Oh please, Marvel, PLEASE don't screw it up. I will give you...all my love and Deadpool fanfic. ALL OF IT. Also: can I write for you? Seriously. CALL ME.
