Ryan Reynolds... is he Deadpool?

So with the leaked test footage we got a taste of Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with the Mouth.
Sure, we got to see him on the big screen as Wade Wilson in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but DP fans don't really count that.
Sure, Reynolds was a good Wade Wilson, the character was just severely misused.

The Test footage gave everyone hope that a DP movie wasn't just a project stuck in development hell.

Fox recently announced a Deadpool movie, but there was no word on who will play everyone's favorite mercenary.

Was Reynolds still playing DP, or did the studio choose to go with someone else?

When asked about who will be playing him, Deadpool Creator Rob Liefeld said:

"Ryan is Deadpool. Look, Ryan Reynolds, he’s gone through that same career arc, the guy is ridiculously talented. He has a huge, huge passion for Deadpool. Deadpool’s not happening, because he was a giant star, they said, ‘Ryan, what do you want to do?’ And he said, ‘Deadpool.’ That’s why it happened. They would have no faith otherwise. That movie is because of his passion. He put together the team."

If Liefeld says it's happening, it's happening.

I'm excited.
I like Ryan Reynolds, I liked him as Deadpool in the Test Footage...
and I'm now excited that it's gonna happen.

February 12, 2016 people!

In the mean time, enjoy the test footage.
