DEADPOOL is an upcoming superhero comedy film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. Directed by Tim Miller (who is known for creating opening sequences of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Thor: The Dark World), it is intended to be the eighth installment in the X-Men film series. The film stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano, and Brianna Hildebrand.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
