Over the past few months we’ve been hearing rumblings that a Deadpool movie might be happening but really nothing more than rumblings have been occurring. Now though, we may have some more information about the film as director Tim Miller has given an update that fans have been waiting for, stating that the movie could be happening much sooner than first thought.
Miller, who is the attached director on the untitled Deadpool movie, spoke recently with Clevver Movies and said that the movie is closer to getting the green light than it was two months ago.
“We will never give up,” Miller said, via Clevver Movies. “Deadpool is still alive and we’re just waiting for the studio to embrace what an amazingly ***ing awesome film this would be. Ryan is ready, I am ready, the fans are MORE than ready—we just need that elusive green light!”
Ryan Reynolds has been talking about the film as well, but given his superhero past with Green Lantern, fans are skeptical that he can pull off Deadpool. Still, he’s done it before in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine and fans have been waiting for a Deadpool movie for years.
From the sounds of it though, that wait might soon be over.
