Yet more Wolverine news/speculation has found its way online. AICN have got a rather interesting scoop. They usually get casting or cameo news so take this how you will, however I think it may have some truth to it…
Sounds to me like Marvel is going to pack this one with all sorts of geeky Easter eggs if all of these rumors are true. The Blob would be a lot of fun to see in one of these, and there’s another cameo, one that we can officially confirm now, that sounds to me like a set-up for a possible spin-off. Anyone up for a little DEADPOOL? How about if Ryan Reynolds is playing him? This one’s supposed to be a secret, but cat’s out of the bag now, Marvel. And I have to say… I think it sounds like fun. I know this has been a character you guys have been developing for years now (hell, I think I pitched a DEADPOOL film back in 2001), and Reynolds is absolutely the right guy for the job.
Reynolds has spoke about his interesting in making a Deadpool movie in the past, saying the character was tricky to translate onto the big screen. Having a cameo in X-Men Origins: Wolverine would fit perfectly.
Deadpool is a high-tech mercenary known for his wisecracks, black humor, and satirical pop-culture references. Like the X-Men’s Wolverine, Deadpool is the product of the Canadian government’s paramilitary Weapon X program, although his place of birth is unknown. After Weapon X cured his terminal cancer by implementing a regenerative “healing factor” extracted from Wolverine, Deadpool is left disfigured and mentally unstable.
