Deadpool is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is intended to be the eighth installment in the X-Men film series.
The upcoming Deadpool movie technically fits into the larger X-Men movie franchise, but much is being kept under wraps besides the cast. Ryan Reynolds stars as Deadpool following his brief, controversial appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
The film is directed by Tim Miller, with a screenplay by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T. J. Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand, Andre Tricoteux, and Leslie Uggams. In Deadpool, after being subjected to an experiment which leaves him with new abilities, Wade Wilson hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016.
