Twentieth Century Fox and Marvel Comics are moving ahead with their long-gestating X-Men spinoff Deadpool.
On Thursday, the studio announced that the movie will hit theaters Feb. 12, 2016. Tim Miller is set to direct the film, with Ryan Reynolds long rumored to star, although no deal is set.
Remember that “leaked footage” from the end of July? And this post which said; "The thing to remember is that “leaking” footage can be a marketing tactic to gauge response or build hype. Be it by a creator, studio or publisher. On a project that “seems to be in limbo” according to Ryan Reynolds in recent interviews, it isn’t absurd to think this could have been intentional." It seems pretty plausible now. Tell your date on Valentine’s Day 2016 that you knew what was up. Yeah, nobody saw a Valentine’s weekend release date for a Deadpool movie coming.
