    Reynolds, Others Join Wolverine

    Twentieth Century Fox has added three more superheroes to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, with Ryan Reynolds set to play Deadpool, Friday Night Lights regular Taylor Kitsch to star as Gambit and hip-hop artist joining the cast as John Wraith, Variety reported.

    The news confirmed Web reports from, Ain't It Cool News, Superhero Hype! and other sites.

    Liev Schreiber, Danny Huston and Lynn Collins round out the cast as Victor Creed/Sabretooth, Col. William Stryker and Kayla Silver Fox, the trade paper reported..

    Hugh Jackman reprises the role of Wolverine in the X-Men spinoff, which Gavin Hood is shooting in New Zealand, Australia and New Orleans. The movie bows May 1, 2009.

    David Benioff penned the script, which would reveal the origins of the Wolverine character and introduce other mutants not yet seen in the X-Men franchise.

    Marvel has been eyeing the possibility of casting Reynolds as Deadpool, an assassin with self-healing powers, for some time, with the idea of spinning off the character into his own film series should the character prove popular among moviegoers.

    Fox and Marvel have also long wanted to add the card-throwing character of Gambit to the X-Men franchise but could never find a way to give him enough screen time among the many other mutants that have appeared in each film.

    Black Eyed Peas frontman will play Wraith, a mutant who has the power to teleport and is another test subject of the Weapon X program that created Wolverine and other mercenaries. It would be his first film role.

    I love Ryan Reynolds. I think he could make a great Deadpool.
