The X-Men franchise spinoff Deadpool movie is finally moving forward, and Ryan Reynolds will reprise the role he originated in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In that film, the character of Wade Wilson, an amoral expert in martial arts, particularly with a pair of katanas he can wield fast enough to defend against bullets, is believed to be killed but instead is turned into Deadpool by Striker, having absorbed the ability of other mutants including Wolverine’s healing. Wolverine and Sabretooth appear to kill him, but some DVD materials imply he somehow survives.
