Wolverine, Meet Deadpool and Gambit

Check out who was just added to the upcoming prequel to the X-Men films , X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

First off, there's Mr. Abs of Death Ryan Reynolds who has been cast as Deadpool...

























Then, there's Friday Night Lights hottie Taylor Kitsch who has been cast as Gambit...






















Gambit. Always one of my favorites. Yum.

Add a little shirtless Jackman to the mix and I may have to be hosed down when I'm watching this movie on opening night.

I detest Wolvering. Deadpool has always been one I've hated as well. Gambit was okay, in the beginning, before he became irritating like most of the X-Men. I have said repeated I will never go see a movie that features just Wolverine.

HOWEVER...the kids with the hair playing Gambit....*SIGH*....

I think I might have to reconsider my previous thoughts on the film....

HUGS>..

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like an unpardonable sin to cast Ryan Reynolds and then possibly cover his face with that Deadpool mask.

While I question the ability of the Wolverine character to carry his own film, I also have to wonder why me need Gambit. He really seems to be one of the last X-Men I'd associate with Wolvie. I'd have probably gone with Emma Frost, but that's just me. (Gay or not, I've always been mad crushing on her white corset and thigh high boots.)

polt - I know!! The boy playing Gambit will get me to the theatre REGARDLESS!!!

danny - I love that idea!! Let's put these boys IN a Falcon Video, sit back and enjoy the... ahem... action.

anatomicsd - Anytime, baby. Anytime!!!

dirk - You're so right! Covering up Ryan's face would be a disaster. I doubt they will, though. I' thinking this will be a costume-less movie. No purple and yellow spandex for Wolvie. And no HOT Emma Frost. Damn it.

michael - Taylor is mine. Get in line.

raven - I'm a sucker, period. :)

Mmmm, I loves me some Ryan Reynolds! He'll be a great addition to the Xmen hotness factor. Please tell me that James Marsden is returning...
