Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynolds wanted a Deadpool movie, and now he's getting it. Fox has green-lit a spin-off of Reynolds' X-Men Origins: Wolverine character into a starring vehicle for the actor, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

A wisecracking mercenary dying of cancer, Deadpool cures himself of the disease with the same Mutant X genetic alteration that transforms Wolverine. Deadpool's mouth was sewn shut in Wolverine, but he will live to mouth off again in the new film.

Wolverine reeled in a monstrous $87 million opening weekend. Fox already locked in Hugh Jackman for a sequel.
