One of the Marvel comic book properties that is still languishing in development is Deadpool, which will feature Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as Wade Wilson/Deadpool from 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. However, the actor recently revealed in an interview that there will be no connection between this new Deadpool project and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

"(Deadpool) will actually have no connection to the one that was in (X-Men Origins:) Wolverine."

This falls in line with comments made by producer Lauren Shuler Donner in May, who said Deadpool would be a complete reboot of the character. The actor also said that the Deadpool script is still being developed, and that they are aiming for an R rating.

"The script is, I think, fantastic. It's been developed even further in the last three months or so. The film has to be rated R, and it has to be done a certain way, it has to do all these things that I am sure can be worrisome for the guy cutting the checks for it, so if it's going to be done, it needs to be done right."

Visual effects artist Tim Miller is directing Deadpool from a screenplay by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. It still isn't known when production may begin on Deadpool.
