Deadpool 3 sent shockwaves through the entertainment world when it was announced that Hugh Jackman would be returning to reprise his role as Wolverine in the new movie.
Marvel fans have had plenty of concerns about Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox. After all, Fox was just starting to go down the path of exploring a darker version of its X-Men movie franchise.
“Deadpool” is the cinematic equivalent of that kid in school who would always say how much he didn’t care what people thought of him, but just loud enough so everybody could hear him.
It looks like that leaked Deadpool test footage — and the positive reaction from fans — has dragged the movie back from development hell. 20th Century Fox, home of the X-Men and Fantastic Four movie franchise, just announced that the Deadpool movie is really, truly happening. At least, it has a release date — February 12th, 2016 — leaving about 16 months film and edit it.
