As per a report from Deadline, Peter Dinklage is all set to star in the reboot of The Toxic Avengers, initially released in 1984. Michael Herz and Lloyd Kaufman directed the Toxic Avenger movie series. The first part was released in 1984 and followed the life of Melvin Ferd, a 98-pound weakling who works as a janitor. Melvin is pushed into a drum of toxic waste, which sets him on fire. He later becomes a superhero who saves his family and friends.

The Toxic Avengers very similar to Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool movie series? 

One can quickly state that the character from The Toxic Avengers is very similar to Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool movie series, as even this project steeps into environmental themes and subverts the superhero genre in the vein of Marvel's Deadpool.

The Toxic Avengers generated a media franchise, including three film sequels, a musical stage production, a video game, and even a children's TV cartoon.

The Toxic Avengers reboot will be directed by Macon Blair, who previously made his directorial debut with the acclaimed Netflix release, I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore. The movie won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
