Upcoming Deadpool game listed for Wii U platform on Amazon Canada.

Marvel action game Deadpool may be coming to the Wii U, according to a recent listing on the Amazon Canada website.

Marvel's verbose antihero is getting his own game.

The Deadpool game was first revealed by High Moon Studios during a Comic-Con panel last year, and was confirmed only for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC platforms.

The Amazon product page suggests a Nintendo Wii U version of the game may also be in the works, with the product showing an ESRB rating of Mature (17+) and an expected release date of December 31, 2013. No additional information is available. If true, the date may simply be a placeholder, with retailers often listing the last day of the year when no confirmed shipping date already exists.

An Activision representative confirmed to GameSpot AU that a Wii U version of Deadpool will not be launched in Australia, but was unable to comment on other territories. The publisher previously announced several preorder bonuses for fans, including extra in-game content and credits on specific Marvel graphic novels.

UPDATE: An Activision representative has confirmed with GameSpot there are currently no plans to bring Deadpool to the Wii U console.

The Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of Deadpool will launch on June 25 this year.
