With the film adaptation of Marvel Comics hero "Deadpool" finally on the way and well into filming, there's been one obvious question - will we see Hugh Jackman's Wolverine make an appearance?

Jackman and Reynolds played the roles in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and Jackman has appeared in every "X-Men" film to date so far. He has not been confirmed for "Deadpool" as yet, and star Reynolds suggests it hasn't happened yet but there is still hope at this point. He tells News.com.au:

"God I hope so, that would be really nice. I dunno, we'll see. It seems like he's open to it, but it's gonna be more of a scheduling issue than anything else."

Talking about the difference between filming this and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," Reynolds says he's more 'intimately involved' in the production which is also smaller in scale than the previous "X-Men" movies:

"We're just diving into it, but it's such a fun cast and crew, it's been really lovely so far. I'm intimately involved, only because this movie doesn't have the budget that those X-Men movies had; this is, comparatively speaking, a very small film.

We have to make the most out of every dollar that we're putting on screen. So you get involved in all sorts of things that you would never have otherwise gotten involved in, right down to what color the walls are at the back of the set."

"Deadpool" opens on February 12th 2016.

Anticipation is high for the Ryan Reynolds-led "Deadpool" film which opens around much of the world next week. The Marvel comics adaptation is already famous for, and selling itself on, its raunchy R-rated humor - strong enough that it has been banned in China.

Even so, we've previously heard that to even score the current R rating it has they had to trim down or cut out some of the darkest excesses that they filmed. Popping up at a fan event in London, ScreenCrush reports that co-star T.J. Miller revealed that an even dirtier and director's cut will be coming later this year.

Miller says: "So the idea that when you see the fall director's cut of it, that that's going to be even more raw, that's pretty heavy duty." When said raunchier cut will hit is unclear, most likely with the home video release.

So, Nicieza wasn't insinuating that Liefeld may not have known about a similar character at a competing company — it was patently impossible for Liefeld to not have been aware of Deathstroke. Here's Deathstroke over on the left.

Liefeld was proposing they create a very similar looking, similarly named, supernaturally agile assassin character, who even used the same weapons as a character who belonged to Marvel's biggest competitor.

What did the two young creators do in the face of this problem? Honestly, this is where the story reaches its wackiest point. They decided to lean into it.

Deathstroke's real name is Slade Wilson. So they named Deadpool "Wade Wilson."

Though Deadpool is not yet in release, 20th Century Fox has already engaged writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to pen a sequel.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pair have been asked back thanks to a projected $65 million opening for the Ryan Reynolds picture. It is also presumed that director Tim Miller will return as well. The four worked tirelessly to bring the Merc with a Mouth to the screen in form that more closely resembled his comic book counterpart than Reynolds’ first foray as Wade Wilson in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

And, as we reported earlier, it seems a second post-credit scene not screened for press features Deadpool talking up a certain character for the sequel. Like Deadpool, he also first appeared in an issue of New Mutants.

Deadpool opens Friday.

Blowing away even the most lofty of expectations, Deadpool decimated the Valentine's and President's Day weekend box office in record-breaking fashion with an estimated $135 million three-day weekend. As for its incoming competition, How to be Single performed mostly as expected while fifteen years proved too long to wait to release Zoolander 2.

Rewriting the box office record books, Deadpool broke Fifty Shades of Grey's previous February opening weekend record by nearly $45 million based on estimates and that's just the start. The largest opening for an R-rated film was previously $91.7 million, set by The Matrix Reloaded in 2003. That's been destroyed. The largest opening weekend for an R-rated comic book adaptation was previously set by 300 with $70.8 million. Bye, bye.

This is even the largest opening weekend ever for 20th Century Fox, beating a record of $108.4 million previously held by Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Though, to be fair, Revenge of the Sith did open on a Thursday where it brought in $50 million so it's not a complete apples-to-apples comparison, but it does bring us to Deadpool's expected four-day run.

Right now Fox is estimating a $150 million four-day weekend while rival studios go as high as $156 million. In just its first two days Deadpool nearly broke the previous President's Day weekend record of $93 million set by Fifty Shades of Grey, so it already holds the overall record, now it's only a matter of how much will it end up making once Monday's official totals are revealed.

This is also the largest opening for star Ryan Reynolds, a distinction previously held by X-Men Origins: Wolverine at $85 million. More exciting, however, may be the fact this is the largest opening weekend for a first-time director. Deadpool was directed by Tim Miller whose previous credits include a pair of short films along with serving as a visual effects guru for video games including "Mass Effect 2" and "Star Wars: The Old Republic". The previous record holder was Chris Miller, director of Shrek the Third, which opened with $121.6 million back in 2007. As far as live action films are concerned, Robert Stromberg held the previous record with the $69.4 million opening for Maleficent.

Next weekend will be interesting as films that open this large tend to also drop more than 50% in their second weekend. The "A" CinemaScore definitely bodes well for the film's future as films that open with more than $120 million and have an "A" CinemaScore have all gone on to gross more than $300 million. Of the ten films since 2008 that opened with more than $120 million and held an "A" CinemaScore only two managed to drop less than 50%, those being 2015's blockbusters, Jurassic World (49% second weekend drop) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (39.8%). Deadpool, however, is in a league of its own as it is the only one in that group with an R-rating, a classification Hollywood is surely looking at closely. It will be interesting to see if we start seeing more films of this sort as we know a Deadpool sequel is already in the works.

The weekend is also coming up roses for Deadpool overseas as the film brought in a whopping $125 million from 61 international markets. This is the third highest grossing international opening for Fox ever.

We liked it!

Fast and funny, Marvel most unconventional anti-hero finally gets the big screen adaptation he deserves. Tons of easter eggs, blood and profanity.

With "Deadpool" currently scoring such success at the box-office, word of a sequel being greenlit comes as frankly no real surprise. In a new interview today though, the first and second film's writers screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have revealed that the new film won't get much of a budget hike despite the first one's success.

Speaking with Collider, the pair first touched upon the advantage of including fan favorite X-Men character Cable in the sequel. Reese says the plan with the character for the moment isn't to squeeze him into scenarios or other franchises where he's out of his element, but rather bring other characters into the world "Deadpool" established in the first film:

"I think there's a real conceptual difference between taking other characters and big things and bringing them into Deadpool's reasonably small, gritty world and the opposite, taking Deadpool and placing him among big ensembles who are fighting aliens or in the future where he and Cable are doing something in the future.

I think if Cable and Deadpool team up, it will likely be in Deadpool's world. That allows us to control that budgetary thing a little more; I don't think we're gonna see Deadpool and Cable on some far-flung planet 300 years from now because I just feel like that's gonna be expensive, A, and will also take away from the relatability of Deadpool. I think at this stage in the game it's about taking other people and dropping them into this reasonably insular, gritty, urban, dark world of Deadpool."

Wernick says not to expect an unnecessarily expensive sequel:

"We don't want $150 million to go make the next movie, that's not Deadpool. Deadpool doesn't lift cities up into the air or battle aliens coming down to earth, that's just not Deadpool. So we're happy in that little small budget range that they have us in; we don't wanna blow this next one out."

Reese was also asked how many X-Men characters they can incorporate into the next film. The writer says it's mostly a matter of both legal and creative reasons that impact that decision:

"It's a legal list but it's also a creative list, because X-Men: Apocalypse has plans, they have plans for future X-Men movies, and we also have timeline issues. We have actors who are now playing the parts who are a younger generation, we have the older actors - where does Deadpool's timeline fit in with the others?

These are all things that Simon Kinberg worries about for the moment instead of us. Colossus was easy to do because he's chrome and there was no live-action actor playing him, Negasonic was easy to do because she's a very minor character, but if you start talking about Professor X or Beast you do start running into timeline issues and we're gonna need guidelines on that."

With elements and characters from the "X-Men" universe appearing in current box-office champ "Deadpool", it begs the obvious question - could things go the other way around with Deadpool himself or the likes of Negasonic Teenage Warhead scoring an appearance in a major X-Men movie?

For now we know Ryan Reynolds' Merc with a Mouth will be a part of a "Deadpool" sequel and an "X-Force" film in the works, the later boasting fan favorite character Cable. 20th Century Fox hasn't made any formal plans yet, but "Deadpool" writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick tell CinemaBlend that they think he should be a very visible part of the X-Men universe:

"Absolutely. I mean absolutely, as much we could see X-Men [characters] in the Deadpool universe, we could see Deadpool in the X-Men universe. And we even have some fun ideas about that. That's more [a] Simon Kinberg question. He's the keeper of the X-Men universe, but in terms of like, 'Could he pop he up in, you know, you know, any of the upcoming X-Men movies?' Absolutely. As long as it's done right, I think we would embrace it."

One big challenge would be that of the character's violence and profanity, things that would have to be censored to appear in a PG-13 movie. Asked if they'd consider bleeping out his curse words, the writers say: "That's a great idea, yeah. We've been thinking along those lines, because he's almost trapped in a PG-13 movie. It's a fun idea."

Could Deadpool and Wolverine appear on screen together one day? The writers are open the possibility, though lament the fact star Hugh Jackman is leaving the Wolverine role. Reese days:

"What I would say is we've broken all the rules, so there are no rules that we're unafraid to break, and so, you never know. We would love to be able to have Wolverine go head to head with Deadpool, but we also have to keep in mind that there is this larger X-strategy in place and then there's also, I think, probably a little fatigue on Hugh's part.

He's done so many versions of Wolverine and he's doing one more, and I just have to believe at some point he wants to hang up the claws and I just think we have to respect that. It's the bottom line, It's unfortunate that the timing worked out to be the way it is, but at the same time, you can never begrudge an actor or anyone in any profession, the decision to be like alright, it's time to hand it off to someone else... We might be showing up at Hugh's ranch in Australia with a rag with chloroform on it. You just never know."

"Deadpool" is now out in cinemas.

Deadpool 2

Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy of supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling mutant, Cable.

A good sequel that introduces some new and surprise characters with Domino's debut being my fav. Otherwise most jokes were anything but funny and relied too much on simply breaking the "fourth wall" rather than really bringing something meaningfull to the story.

Director: David Leitch
Running time: 119 minutes
Released: 2018
