The other day, Ryan Reynolds had a mock interview with Extra’s Mario Lopez about Deadpool. Fans of the comics – including Reynolds himself – sorely wanted an R-rated movie. Deadpool, after all, has gratuitous violence and inappropriate humor. Great, inappropriate meta-humor.
We’re all looking forward to our favorite superheroes teaming up again to face another threat in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. And besides a different villain, there’s two wild cards that are entering the fray: Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. To settle some curiosity – just a little – a little video was released, introducing these characters.
You know the drill. Watch.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron takes theaters over May 1, 2015.

It’s still unbelievable that Deadpool is getting a film adaptation – especially after the terrible fiasco for the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But here we are. And Ryan Reynolds is reprising the role. And he recently tweeted a photo of himself as Deadpool.
