“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.

This all seems to be very much in order. He’s not a character we love all that much, but he’s got a pretty huge fanbase and Reynolds is just about perfect casting. On paper this all sounds good, but audiences have yet to really show their love for Ryan Reynolds and you need a huge outpouring of love to justify the cost of a movie like this.
