The Kidd here...
Not too long ago, it looked like a solo DEADPOOL movie was finally on a fast track to being made. However, things have appeared to stall since Tim Miller was hired back in April after plenty of rumors circulated about who might step behind the camera to bring the Marvel character to the big screen.
Well, Miller is talking, giving an update as to where DEADPOOL currently stands, and it appears that right now it's really up to the studio as to whether or not the idea for a film based entirely around him proceeds.
Miller recently told Nerd Reactor, "We’ve turned in an amazing script and done some early tests and visual development that–I’m confident–would get the fans stoked. And Ryan still loves the project. So it’s really up to Fox as to whether or not the film happens–all I can do is hope (and beg periodically) that it be allowed to move ahead."
Okay, so Ryan Reynolds is still in if the film is a go, and that go is totally dependent upon what Fox wants to do right now.
Come on, Fox... the ball is in your court. If the script is amazing, why wouldn't you pull the trigger? You just let Daredevil walk away for nothing... who knows when your FANTASTIC FOUR reboot is going to come together... and right now all you've got is the X-Men. I don't see where the difficulty of this decision really lies.
