Deadpool: “Yeah, but I’ve got a big heat! What are you supposed to be?”
Dixon: “In this place, the closest you’ll find to a god, miscreant. I’m Dixon.”
Deadpool: “Yeah, I can tell that, but what’s your name? And don’t call me son.”
Deadpool, Marvel’s Merc with a mouth, has been one of the most popular Marvel characters since X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Even though I didn’t even slightly like his part in the movie, but everyone has been talking about him. They even released a game last month that was announced during 2012’s Comic-Con. And despite the fact that that’s awesome, we’re here to talk about the announced Deadpool movie.
20th Century Fox had Tim Miller attached to direct the movie from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and of course, had Ryan Reynolds to play the role of our anti-hero. This is a good start, since we need a funny yet violent movie, and people who wrote Zombieland would be good candidates to write this movie too. Tim Miller is a wild card though, since he hasn’t directed any full length movies, but he’s done good jobs with visual effects, like Scott Pilgrim Vs The World for instance. I think Ryan Reynolds is suitable for the role, and I’m actually hoping for surprises. And the best thing about Deadpool, is that it’ll R Rated, so we can hope for some violence, dirty jokes, and lots and lots of blood. Basically what we see in the comics.
The bad thing about all this is, as I said, that they totally ruined Deadpool in X-men Origins: Wolverine, and anyone who reads the comic would hate the movie if they continued the movie where the Wolverine movie ended. I seriously hope they’d make up for that horrible mistake they made.
However, nothing is certain about the movie, and the last thing Ryan Reynolds said was:
“That movie is alive and kicking, and then it’s dead as a doornail. Then it’s alive and kicking and then it’s dead… it’s like the worst relationship I’ve ever had! The character knows he’s a comic-book character, he knows he’s in a film, he knows who the executives are at the studio making the movie. In the current iteration of the script, Deadpool is aware of the Wolverine movie. He doesn’t say anything disparaging about it but he does at one point play with the Deadpool action figure with some curiosity.”
Personally, I’m a big Deadpool fan, I also read the comics and I’m about to get the video game. The books are entertaining and extremely fun to read. This seems promising, and it can be an awesome movie. If it’s done properly, it can get a minimum rating of 7.4, which would be better than the Wolverine movies. But there’s plenty of space for screwing up the movie bad, for people who read the comic books at least.
