It’s no secret, America has fallen in love with superhero flicks!

Movies about Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk, the Green Lantern, Iron Man, Thor, The Avengers…hold on, let me catch my breath… as well as less conventional heroes such Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) in the recently released Ant Man, have captured the hearts of film watching audiences across the U.S.

However, Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero to date is making his way to the big screen.

I’m talking about Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) in 20th Century Fox’s action-adventure film ‘DEADPOOL’. The film will hit theaters a couple days short of Valentine’s Day on February 12th, and stars actor Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson, who later gives life to Deadpool, actress Morena Baccarin as Copycat, actress Gina Carano as Angel Dust, actor T.J. Miller as Weasel, and actor Ed Skrein as Ajax among others.

Deadpool, which was directed by Tim Miller, “tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned Mercenary Wade Wilson whom is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers” leading him to adopt the alter ego.
