    After an extremely disappointing appearance in ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ back in 2009, fans have been demanding a proper big screen adaptation of the smooth-talking, fast-shooting, slicing-and-dicing hired gun known as Deadpool. Even star Ryan Reynolds did everything within his power for the better part of a decade to push the studio in the right direction. […]
