Definitely, or maybe? According to AICN, Ryan Reynolds is definitely showing up in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as the character Deadpool -- which not only means there may be a new spinoff franchise in the works, but that this new Wolverine prequel will be chock-full of groovy comic characters. As per Wiki, the character is "Nicknamed the "Merc with a Mouth", Deadpool is a high-tech mercenary known for his wisecracks, black humor, and satirical pop-culture references. Like the X-Men's Wolverine, Deadpool is the product of the Canadian government's paramilitary Weapon X program, although his place of birth is unknown. After Weapon X cured his terminal cancer by implementing a regenerative "healing factor" extracted from Wolverine, Deadpool is left disfigured and mentally unstable."

Sounds like the perfect comic book character for Reynolds, who's made a name for himself in the comedic realm and always looks relaxed in front of the camera. But can he kick ass? Additionally, Film School Rejects also claims to have received information indicating that The Blob will make an appearance in Wolverine as well. The character is just that -- a friggin' giant blob-ish mutant who "possesses an extreme amount of pliable body mass, which grants him superhuman strength and his own gravitational pull. Possessing the mindset of a bully, he mostly uses his powers for petty crime and as a member of the Brotherhood of Mutants and Freedom Force." Fat dudes, funny men -- seems like Wolvy will get rather dirty in this one.

What do you think about adding both these characters into the mix? Too much?
