Everything’s coming up Deadpool these days and that’s just fine with me, especially when it means we get things like this Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure from Sideshow Collectibles.

This fully articulated figure comes with all sorts of swappable stuff, knives, guns, and even Big Boomin’ Balls. But, my favorite feature is the optional plug-in Word Bubbles, complete with a sheet of “Explicit Thoughts and Witty Words”.

Head after the break to see pictures and a full description.

Now that the Deadpool movie has been greenlit, it’s time to start the rampant speculation on all sorts of things.

In this case, it’s the question of whether or not Deadpool will get a PG-13 rating or if it will get the R rating that many fans would expect.

The rumor originated with this comment from the Schmoes Know podcast:

“I heard from the director [Tim Miller] that they finally figured out the script, and it was right before this was announced, that they figured out, and you guys are all going to hate this, that they figured out how to make it PG-13 and therefore not lose its soul – that’s a quote – of the script so they can make it.”

Keep in mind that a PG-13 rating allows for quite a bit of violence these days, so it might still be possible to make a Deadpool movie that won’t “lose it’s soul”. And, let’s be honest, it’s highly unlikely that Marvel would ever risk limiting the audience with an R rating. However, I have a feeling that the fan world must have spoken its mind on the news and rather loudly, because Deadpool writer/producer Rhett Reese weighed in on Twitter.

Remember when that Deadpool movie test footage leaked and everyone was really bummed because it reminded us just how much we wanted a Deadpool movie?

Prepare to be made happy. Variety reported yesterday that we’ll be getting a Deadpool movie on February 12, 2016 and it’ll be a spin-off of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Like the test footage, it will star Ryan Reynolds and be directed by Tim Miller. It’s also being produced by Marvel’s Kevin Feige and Lauren Shuler Donner, which makes me feel like it’ll be in good hands.

It’s a long time to wait, but I think it’ll be worth it.

Artists who participate in Comic Book Resources’ “The Line it is Drawn” column answer some of life’s greatest questions. The challenge for a 2012 column was “What if ___ and ____ had a baby?” DeviantArt user Marco D’Alfonso decided to imagine Harley Quinn and Deadpool’s offspring, and despite the chaos that would ensue, I have to admit their little family is pretty adorable. I bet no one volunteers to babysit though.

deadpool test footage

Test footage from the defunct Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool movie surfaced on YouTube this morning, was quickly yanked, and now it’s resurfaced.

It appears that 20th Century Fox had the original video removed, but it’s probably the best thing that could have happened. Clearly, there is a demand for this film and this (mostly CGI) footage looks pretty great. Check it out for yourself after the break before it disappears again…

Need more adorable toys? Of course you do! Funko’s just announced their Fabrikations collection and it offers a different kind of toy: a plushie that has the qualities of an action figure. The soft sculpted figures stand on their own, have rotating heads, and come with vinyl accessories. For example, Deadpool gets swords and Yoda gets a lightsaber.

The toys are definitely cute, and I like the idea of putting stuffed figures on my shelves next to my other collectibles. So far the Fabrikations line includes characters from Marvel, Star Wars, and DC Comics. You can pre-order Deadpool, Yoda, Batman, and more for an estimated ship dates between April to August.

Check out more of the collection after the break.

It looks like the X-Men aren’t leaving the silver screen anytime soon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeff Wadlow, the director of Kick-Ass 2, has been given the green light by 20th Century Fox to write an adaptation of X-Force.
