Ryan Reynolds To Play Deadpool In 2016



If there were any doubts whether or not Ryan Reynolds would play Deadpool in the 2016 movie, they can now be put to rest as Reynolds will reprise as the Merc With The Mouth.

Ryan Reynolds posted the following on his official Twitter account adding, "Uh... It's Chimichanga Time," referencing Deadpool's favorite food of choice. In addition, the Hollywood trade sites are confirming Ryan Reynolds will return as Deadpool with production to start in March.

Ryan Reynolds previously played Deadpool in the 2009 X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie.

A Deadpool movie has been talked about for a while, but it wasn't until the recent release of the Deadpool test footage (below) that got things really moving.

The Deadpool movie has a February 12, 2016 release directed by Tim Miller.
