For a while now I was under the impression that comic-book movie fans might see an appearance from Carnage or, perhaps a character as obscure as American Eagle on the screens before Wade Wilson finally sauntered his way into the general consciousness, due to the character's oddball humor and incredibly violent tendencies.
But, after the "leak" of some stunning test footage, and some brilliant lobbying by die hard fans and a bonafide star, in the shape of Ryan Reynolds, the Merc with a Mouth is shaping up to finally make his entrance into the world of supermovies! And it couldn't have come at a better time, especially considering the immense success of Marvel's lesser known heroes Guardians of the Galaxy.
So in honor of the impending full-blooded madness, let's have a look at Deadpool's eclectic cast of familiar faces:
Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool
Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlylse/Copycat
T.J. MIller as Jack Hammer/Weasel
Gina Carano as Angel Dust
Ed Skrein as Ajax
Brianna Hildebrand as Ellie Phimister/Negasonic Teenage Warhead
Once again, casting directors take a bow. I cannot wait to see how the characters turn out on the big screen!
What about you?
Looking forward to Deadpool breaking fourth wall in your favorite multiplex?
