Marvel fans saw the first live-action appearance of Deadpool back in 2009, as part of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". However, despite the nod at Ryan Reynolds's portrayal of the character, many thought the interpretation was blasphemous --- that Deadpool was cancer-free, costume-less, and eerily quiet: come on, he's supposed to be the one who can break the fourth wall!

However, Cinema Blend noted that after years of being stuck in development, the "Deadpool" movie is finally on its way to the big screen: it will be released on February 12, 2016. It may seem fast, but it did take over half a decade for it to finally translate on-screen. Here is what we know of the upcoming film:

1) It will tell viewers of the hero's backstory: including tackling his terminal cancer diagnosis and a torturous secret program that led him to become the superhero known as the Merc with the Mouth.

2) Acting alongside Reynolds is "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin, who plays Vanessa, AKA Wade Wilson's first great love. Vanessa is a hooker that Wilson eventually falls in love with, but their relationship was tested when his cancer was revealed.

3) It has an R-rating. Sure, not many superhero movies get the R-rating, but Reynolds is pretty proud of that fact. He told Total Film. "what I'm most proud of is we got to make the movie in the way it should have been made, which is rated R at a very modest budget."

4) The film director is a newbie, Tim Miller. He does not have a lot of feature credits to his name, however, he has worked as a VFX artist and his claim to fame is the awesome title sequence for "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo".

5) Reynolds himself worked on the script, alongside "Zombieland" duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and the team worked hard to stay true to Deadpool from the movies. An early draft leaked in 2010, but that was long ago, so there is a possibility that many of the elements have already changed.

Movie updates aside, Deadpool has officially been indoctrinated into the Avengers team. Marvel recently released a standalone comic called "Avengers #0" which has several short stories that IGN noted is aimed at paving the way for upcoming Avengers titles. Don't get too excited, though. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Deadpool is still part of 20th Century Fox, which means that he probably won't be teaming up with Earth's Mightiest Heroes anytime soon. Don't lose hope, though. It happened for Spider-Man, didn't it?
