Deadpool might be good

It would be easy to be seduced by Ryan Reynolds' assurance that the inevitable DEADPOOL movie was gonna be like the comics if you were an infant straight out of the womb, or the dude from MEMENTO. Unfortunately for me I can actually remember Reynolds playing a major role in bending Deadpool over and raping him with such gusto, in X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE. Still, let's play pretend shall we?

"Well, I'm intimately involved with it. We're just trying to break a story right now and figure out who the villain is going to be and all that stuff. But, it's going to be just like the comic books. I'm gonna have a messed up face and you may see some flashbacks of Wade earlier in his life, but primarily what you see is what you get in the comics and that's the goal. And there is no better place to draw material from then the comics which are incredible."

Of course, there's a chance that Reynolds suited up and annihilated Deadpool as a character in that turd of a WOLVERINE movie just so that he could do it the right way now. But I doubt it. Maybe I'm cynical but I'd rather expect another absolute pile and be pleasantly surprised than expect Reynolds will buck the trend and then fail to deliver.

Also, what saddens me about this is that the Deadpool movie has the chance to be a really amazing film. The source material is so clever. We're breaking the fourth wall here. This is a short comment from him, but what I derive from it is that when Reynolds assures us it will "be like the comics", he means storyline/canon-wise. Which is not exactly what I'm looking for from him. I mean, that shit should be a given, shouldn't it? Who the hell would say yeah we're gonna adapt the comic into a movie but it will be nothing like it. We're just gonna make shit up. I want it to be "like the comics" in that it is in style, like nothing you've ever seen in this genre before. A comic book character that actually acknowledges he is a comic book character. Sans laser eyes.
Extra Tidbit: Also, I apologize if you really liked the Wolvey movie but that thing really rubbed me the wrong way.
