A source said: â€œFans were excited by rumors the film would feature Deadpool because heâ€™s a legendary villain for Marvel comics readers. So theyâ€™ll be delighted to know Ryanâ€™s going to play him.
â€œDeadpool is a mentally unstable mercenary, with special healing powers just like Wolverineâ€™s. He is full of funny one-liners and wisecracks. Itâ€™s just the sort of thing Ryan is great at.â€
