MOVIE NEWS – After the huge box office success of Deadpool, 20th Century Fox will do Deadpool 2 of course. The original writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are both back to write the script, and Tim Miller has been will direct the movie. During the post-credit scene in Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds’ title character confirmed that the iconic character Cable will be in the mix for this follow-up, but there isn’t much we know about the story thus far. Still, if one actress will get, what she wants, we may see a Lady Deadpool in the sequel.
While she was promoting her new film, Ratchet & Clank, which will be in theaters April 29th, actress Bella Thorne was asked from journalists what is nowadays a relatively customary question these days. “Does she intends to play in a superhero movie? In the case of most actors and actresses, we have only a somewhat vague response, but Bella Thorne wants one particular role: Lady Deadpool. Here’s what she had to say when asked what types of roles she’d be interested in, during an interview with MovieFone.
“I’d be so down to play like a badass Marvel character. Any badass female in live-action, like Cora, is in this movie. I also like playing roles that are very rebellious and real. So it’s good when you show teenagers for how they act and how they talk. Honestly, if I could just play a female version of Deadpool – any character that’s a female version of Deadpool – I’m so down!”
She may be in luck because there’s indeed a female version of Deadpool, Wanda Wilson of Earth-3010, a.k.a. Lady Deadpool. Wanda Wilson hailed from an alternate universe, who became part of Wade Wilson’s team of mercenaries in the comics. It’s also possible that Bella Thorne could portray Glenpool, a bizarre spinoff of Spider-Gwen who is a girl transported into the Marvel Comics who is living through the pages of these books. Of course, we don’t know if any of these characters will be introduced in Deadpool 2 quite yet.
Last week, director Tim Miller talked about wanting to see a Spider-Man crossover in Deadpool 2, although producer Simon Kinberg said he didn’t think that would be possible. Both Spidey and the Merc interacted several times in the comics, which proved to be quite popular with the fans. Still, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures control the rights to Spidey, and it seems unlikely that they would put the web slinger into an R-rated adventure. But then again, anything is possible. It was announced earlier today that Deadpool comes to Digital HD next week.
