Deadpool is a 2016 American superhero film directed by Tim Miller, produced by Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner, and written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. The film stars Ryan Reynolds (who also co-produced), Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T. J. Miller, Gina Carano, Leslie Uggams and Brianna Hildebrand. In Deadpool, Wade Wilson hunts the man who gave him an accelerated healing factor but also a scarred physical appearance.

Development began in February 2004 with New Line Cinema, but put the film in turnaround in March 2005, with 20th Century Fox buying the rights. In May 2009, after Reynolds portrayed the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Fox lent the film to writers, and Miller was hired for his directorial debut in April 2011. Enthusiastic acclaim from leaked CGI test footage by Miller in July 2014 led to Fox greenlighting the film that September. Additional casting began in early 2015, and principal photography commenced in Vancouver from March to May. The film's visual effects – from blood and gore to the computer-generated Colossus – were provided by multiple vendors, including Adobe.

Deadpool premiered in Paris on February 8, 2016, and was released on February 12, 2016, in the United States in IMAX, DLP, D-Box and premium large formats. The film was a blockbuster success, grossing over $778 million worldwide and breaking numerous box office records, including becoming the fifth-highest grossing film of 2016, the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time and the highest-grossing film in the X-Men franchise. The film received positive reviews, with critics praising its humor, action sequences, and Reynolds' performance.

Shortly after its success, in April, Fox confirmed that a sequel has been greenlit.
