Ryan Reynolds has long been rumored to be starring as Deadpool in a full length movie.
Footage of a screen test with Reynolds as Deadpool surfaced earlier this year, re-fueling the chatter that the film was going to happen.
Reynolds, who just joined recently, tweeted today with what seems to be a confirmation of the movie:
Reynolds starred as Green Lantern in a movie that many do not feel like lived up to that character. However, fans have been positive for Reynolds as Deadpool, including an overwhelming positive reaction to the leaked footage.
Fox announced several months ago that it had slotted “Deadpool” for Feb. 12, 2016.Tim Miller is directing the superhero film from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel’s Kevin Feige are producing.
