Hollywood superstar Ryan Reynolds has been working hard to get a Deadpool movie off the ground for many years now but found it very difficult and it pretty much all seemed dead in the water. Ryan was not going to give up though and he has spent around a decade trying to get anyone who will listen, to take a chance on a Deadpool movie and get the character his own big screen project.
One of the biggest stumbling blocks for the Deadpool movie was the fact that the script was seen as far too dark and violent, making it a big risk to take a gamble on. However, Ryan Reynolds got a team together to make a sample of a possible Deadpool film, which was eventually leaked online and, thanks to the fans loving what they saw, Ryan has now seen his dream come true.
Reynolds was a guest on the Graham Norton Show, when he told the host that a Deadpool movie never would have happened without the backing of the fans, ""It's the best and worst relationship I've ever had - it took 11 years. We even made a taster but that sat on the shelf for four years until someone leaked it on the web and then within 24 hours it got the green light. I tried to make it happen for all that time but the fans got it made," he explained.
Deadpool will see Ryan Reynolds sharing the big screen with Morena Baccarin, Stefan Kapicic, Gina Carano, T.J. Miller, and Ed Skrein, among others. Tim Miller has directed the Deadpool movie, which is set to hit the big screen on February 10 in the UK and February 12 in the US.
