Recent developments would suggest a Deadpool movie is back in business: Ryan Reynolds is willing to fit it into his busy schedule and Tim Miller is attached to direct.
Lets see what producer Lauren Shuler Donner has to say about it.
“We have a few more things to do. And then it's up to the studio to decide whether we're going to go forward or not,” Donner told Totalfilm.com.
Not the answer TF was hoping for. Hang on though, she's not quite done yet: “But I'm pretty excited. We have a good script and a good director.”
During a showcase of the Blu-ray features for X-Men: First Class Donner told the assembled press: “When we misstep you're with us and when we do well you cheer us and we're very happy about that.”
TF couldn't help but ask if Deadpool was one of those missteps...
“Yes he was treated totally wrong in the Wolverine film and yes we will redeem him,” replied Donner.
X-Men: First Class is released on DVD and Blu-ray on 9 September in the US and 31 October in the UK.
