Five new exclusive “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” character profiles arrived on MTV tonight, and each clip offers a sneak peek at one of the mutants in Wolverine’s upcoming big-screen romp (watch them all here). Sure, the May 1 release is Logan’s solo debut, but anyone who’s been paying attention knows his super-powered supporting cast is generating a lot of buzz, too.
For example, Marvel’s “Merc With The Mouth,” Wade Wilson (or, as he’s better known, Deadpool), has quickly become the most mysterious and controversial character in the film. His exact role in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” has been obsessed over by everyone here at Splash Page HQ since the first images of actor Ryan Reynolds in costume were revealed. So, now that we have the chance, let’s get to know Wade Wilson, shall we?
“All I wanted was to travel to far-off exotic places, meet new and exciting people… and kill them,” deadpans Reynolds in the new character profile for Wade Wilson. “So I became I mercenary.”
And with that, the one thing that does become clear about Reynolds’ portrayal of Deadpool is that the actor won’t be putting a serious spin on the character — and we can all be thankful for that, right? Nobody wants to see an emo Deadpool.
However, if you this Wade Wilson character profile whets your appetite for more Marvel mutants, be sure to check out all five “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” clips at MTV.com. Snikt!
