The movie Deadpool is another Marvel Films enterprise, this one featuring Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool.
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.
Don’t expect the movie to do The Avengers type of business at the box office, as it is one of the few Marvel properties not at Disney. This one is a Fox and they haven’t a clue what to do when it comes to marketing movies.
And, more importantly, Ryan Reynolds is not a box office attraction.
