Deadpool Movie is Finally Confirmed

One of the best parts of Fox’s X-Men: Origins was the appearance of Wade Wilson, because Deadpool has a large (and loyal) fanbase, and that Ryan Reynolds did a fine job portraying the merc in a mouth before he became the wisecracking, fourth wall-breaking anti-hero. The clamor for a spin-off movie was equally strong, but died down after the project was unceremoniously shelved and Reynolds went to the other camp and portrayed one of their heroes (unsuccessfully, in terms of critical reception.)

Deadpool Movie Adaptation Getting Closer to Reality

Back when X-Men Origins: Wolverine first landed on the big screens, one of the things that had comic book fans wetting their jammies in excitement was a potential Deadpool spin-off, due to Ryan Reynold’s portrayal of the merc with a mouth (which was well-received, despite being only a few minutes long) and because of the end-credits teaser.

However, the possibility of a Deadpool movie started fading after some wishy-washiness on the part of Fox and was finally laid to rest when Ryan Reynolds was cast as Hal Jordan in DC’s adaptation of Green Lantern, because it would be awkward for Hal Jordan to suddenly become Wade Wilson in his own movie, and mainly because Green Lantern bombed so hard that people were no longer excited at the prospect of seeing Ryan Reynolds in another comic book movie.

However, in a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies, Ryan Reynolds revealed that there’s still a chance that the Deadpool movie will push through, and they are making sure to approach everything carefully in order to sell the studio in on the idea:

Warner Bros. brings Green Lantern to Cartoon Network November 11

Green Lantern has been on quite a roll lately. The Green Lantern comic book series from DC Comics was recently rebooted, along with GL’s appearance in Justice League and several other titles. The Emerald Knight had his own animated DVD and Blu-ray hit stores over the summer. And then, let’s not forget the Warner Bros. summer blockbuster with Ryan Reynolds that opened Hal Jordan up to a movie franchise. What else could he possibly get? How about his own animated series! Better yet, make it CG animated. And bring along the geniuses behind the original Batman: The Animated Series, Superman, and Justice League Unlimited shows. Now we’re talking green with envy. The Cartoon Network series kicks off on November 11th (that’s 11-11-11 for you number fans ….number fans…?) so be sure to check it out. In the meantime, let’s have a look at a whole world of screens from the toon!

On brightest screens, in blackest theaters! Green Lantern is making his way to the big screen today, June 17th, representing the latest line in super hero comic books invading the world of movies.

With major successes like Batman’s The Dark Knight and Superman Returns already in the lineup for DC, they’re obviously expecting big things from GL. We know we’ll be there – how about you?

We’ve met Superman, the Man of Steel. We’ve met Batman, the Dark Knight. Outside of those two, the world of DC Comics up on the big screen has been rather scarce.

Ryan Reynolds will star as Hal Jordan, the man with enough will power and lack of fear to wield the mighty Green Lantern ring. Will GL stack up with the other Justice League heroes? We’ll find out tomorrow when the film storms theaters in 3D. Will you have the will power?

This is certainly going to be a green year. Sure, we hope that’s true for the environmental concerns, but our focus here at ToonBarn Studios is in the animation world, and Green seems to have that covered in 2011, courtesy of DC Comics’ superhero Green Lantern.

Move over, Ryan Reynolds! There’s a new ring slinger in the DC Universe – at least the animated one. To couple the hype for DC Comics’ upcoming live-action Green Lantern film, Warner Bros. Animation is releasing a special collection of animated GL segments on DVD June 7th, called Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. Nathan Fillion will provide the voice of Hal Jordan, whose quest is to train Arisia, a new recruit, voiced by Elizabeth Moss. Just like when Warner Premiere brought Batman: Gotham Knights to the small screen as it’s big brother brought the Dark Knight to the big screen, Warner is hoping to spark some added green interest in the character with this new DVD and Blu-ray title. Will this just be the beginning of the Lantern Corps? We’ll just have to wait and see
