The upcoming Marvel feature 'Deadpool' has been so on-again, off-again that it began to seem like it would no longer be the story of the anti-hero mercenary scarred from experimentation, but just some comic dream in the guise of Ryan Reynolds, floating dead in a pool like 'Sunset Boulevard.'

Last we knew, Robert Rodriguez had a tumultuous flirtation with the project, but he waved g'bye to the film over the summer, leaving a very lonely directorial seat to fill. Usually these gigs pull out the big names from Hollywood, but it looks like Marvel and Fox might go in a different direction and hand over the reigns to a commercial director. Risky? Yes. But the right choice? Quite possibly.
