Deadpool movie..C'mon already!!!

     The character of Deadpool has been deserving of a  movie for a while, Ryan Reynolds can play him correctly since he's got a good reputation of playing wise-cracking characters and has been "championing Deadpool for years and several directors enthusiastically circled the project – chief among them were Robert Rodriguez and music video helmsman (and current Videodrome remake shot-caller) Adam Berg." according to the web site Geeks of Doom.

Let's hope they make it before Ryan Reynolds gets old.
If you don't know much about Deadpool, that's fine he breaks the fourth wall with his readers a lot and I for one am looking forward to seeing this transition to film.  I have personally stopped reading Marvel comics since the whole Disney thing and it may be just a personal thing that I think their influence can potentially ruin a film.  That may be the hold up for this one as Deadpool would need plenty of violence and gore to play on the exaggerated violence Hollywood films can produce.  The Geeks of Doom article notes Reynolds hinting to that fact in an interview he did where he states, [In] its current iteration the movie’s actually very small. There’s minimal impact to the studio, which is the way we’re kind of presenting it to them. We’re saying ‘Look, the budget is minimal. Therefore, can we do this the way it should be done?’ Which unfortunately needs a Rated R or it needs those elements.”

I was collecting many Deadpool comics before Marvel started getting on my nerves and ruined one of my favorite characters by hitting reset on his life with The Amazing Spider-man and the Brand New Day storyline.  The Disney buy out news followed soon after that, lets hope Reynolds, Rodriguez and Miller can be successful in making it happen.
