Comic book movie news just keeps on flowing these last few months. Today we received THREE new castings.

First Ryan Reynolds posted this picture on Twitter which pretty much stated that he IS going to play as everyone's favorite Merc With a Mouth.

He's a-comin'!
He's a-comin'!

Oh wow, this really shocked me... (OBVIOUS SARCASM FTW)

Was anybody really wondering if Ryan Reynolds WASN'T going to be Deadpool? I mean the guys has been wanting for years to get Deadpool right, he was in the amazing test footage that came out a while back, then they confirmed a Deadpool movie with the director of the Deadpool test footage. Put two and two together and you got Ryan Reynolds. Still it is cool that he officially announced it.
Ryan Reynolds is the perfect choice for Deadpool in this generation: great actor, extremely funny, charismatic, and has a commanding screen presence. Even in the beginning of that travesty known as X-Men Origins, he did act like Deadpool. Then producers got involved and sewed his mouth shut just to give a middle finger to fans.
To me, Deadpool is one of my most anticipated movies of 2016 because Deadpool is one of the greatest characters ever created and I'm REALLY interested to see what they can do with his humor.

Next in the casting news was Krysten Ritter as Marvel's Jessica Jones.

....Oh right! Yaaaaay. I so know who Jessica Jones is and I so know who Krysten Ritter is...woo. Seriously, I don't know about Jessica Jones enough to actually care. In fact I'm still shocked that it's Jessica Jones who's going to be part of the Defenders when there are many more female characters you can use. *Cough* She-Hulk Please *Cough*

Then there is the other casting that fans have been waiting for including myself. Many of the possible actors chosen would have been great but I am happy with...Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange!

Honestly, I'm one of those fans who could cast him in so many roles (Read my fancastings of the past) but I am extremely happy with this one. Personally, I wanted him to play as Brainiac or Mr. Freeze but again still happy. Now I'm curious if they will get him to look like the Doctor Strange from the comics because we all know that outfit is umm...flamboyant to say the least.

So those are today's casting and yeah they're okay. Stuff we all more than likely expected to happen. What do you think of these castings? Tell me in the comments below!
