Ryan Reynolds To Get His Own ‘X-Men’ Spinoff

Celebuzz / May 6, 2009

X-Men Origins: Wolverine may have just come out in theaters, but it’s already spawned at least two new movies.

Variety reports that Twentieth Century Fox is starting development on Deadpool, a spinoff based on the character that Ryan Reynolds plays in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

This isn’t very surprising, as the character is one of the most popular in the X-Men comics. Reynolds plays Wade Wilson, who submits himself to the Weapon X genetic alteration experiment after finding out that he is dying from cancer, and becomes an indestructible anti-hero.

Fox is also in the early stages of developing a Wolverine sequel, based on the samurai storyline that is hinted at the end of the Hugh Jackman film, which made $87 million opening weekend.
