Deadpool receives an official release date

I guess leaking test footage around Comic-Con was genius because Fox has just announced an official release date for a long-awaited Deadpool film.

Deadpool is currently set for February 12, 2016 and it is expected that Ryan Reynolds will return, but nothing is set in stone so far. Reynolds played Deadpool (aka, Wade Wilson) in the 2009 X-Men spinoff, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The film will be directed by Tim Miller and produced by Marvel President Kevin Feige and Lauren Shuler Donner. If the February 12th release date sticks it will compete with Gods of Egypt, How to Be Single, and an untitled Universal project.
This character first appeared in print back in 1991 and has quickly become a fan favorite due to his talkative sass and impressive skill. If Reynolds does sign on to play Deadpool it will mark his first superhero appearance since the 2011 box-office bomb, Green Lantern.

This is so exciting it's ridiculous. I have been waiting for a Deadpool movie since X-Men: Origins so I am really excited. I'm not the biggest fan of Ryan Reynolds, but judging from what the leaked test footage looked like I think he would do just fine. Hopefully this is released before the announced Gambit spin-off and that it's R-rated. If it isn't R-rated I won't see it.
