8. Ryan Reynolds Is Expected To Star
Though a deal has not yet been made, this is a role which belongs to Ryan Reynolds. First mentioned by Deadpool himself in a comic book as a suitable candidate to play the character in a movie, the actor would do just that in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He was as perfect as you might expect…until the final act completely ruined Wade Wilson by turning him into some sort of weird medical experiment that was not Deadpool in any way, shape or form.
Despite all of this, the demand for a movie never went away and it’s hard to imagine anyone except Reynolds starring in it. He’s made it clear that he wants to, and in all honesty, he needs to appear in a successful blockbuster after the tepid response to the likes of Green Lantern. Deadpool can serve as a redemption of sorts for both the title character and its lead actor!
