Ryan Reynolds confirms ‘Deadpool’ role, pic made of ‘bullets’

Ryan Reynolds closed the deal to star in Fox-Marvel’s Deadpool, their long-in-development X-Men spinoff. The Green Lantern star energized fans by posting an image on his Twitter account, the character image made from ammunition shells.

“It’s chimichanga time” is a reference to Deadpool’s favorite food. Mike Oncley created the rendition of the character’s head made up of spent bullet cartridges.

Reynolds, who portrayed the character in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, has been expected to star for many years. Tim Miller is directing the superhero film from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Lauren Shuler Donner is  producing.

The mouthy mercenary character, whose real name is Wade Wilson, was created by artist and writer Rob Liefeld and co-writer Fabian Nicieza. He first appeared in print in 1991.

Reynolds bombed as Green Lantern and the comic book adaptation R.I.P.D. was a box office disaster as well.

He has starred in films such as Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story, National Lampoon’s Van Wilder, Finder’s Fee, Just Friends, Definitely, Maybe, The Proposal, The Amityville Horror, The Change-Up, Smokin’ Aces, Adventureland, Buried, and Safe House.

Reynolds starred in the lead voice role as the title character in Turbo, which was a box office success.

Deadpool is set to arrive in theaters on February 16, 2016
