Deadpool might be good

Jun. 1, 2009by: James Thoo

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.

Somewhat accurate

kurofusen, in the deadpool comics he has come back from having his head chopped off. It was set next to him and it grew back on to his body. The movie may have not had it exact but it is similar. I am not praising the movie here, I hated it but people are all complaining about this when it has happened in the comic.

I didn't like him in Wolverine and that scene where he was chopping bullets with his sword was stupid

All you really need to know is that Fox is still in control of this project. They pull this shit EVERY time. They fuck something over for no good reason, and then go into damage control mode and promise the fans of whatever franchise it is that they fucked up numerous times and re-assure every one that "next time we'll get it right". Then, everyone goes to see the next one, hoping it will be good for once because they love the source material.

When are we all just going to wake up and

When are we all just going to wake up and stop supporting Fox - no matter how much we love the source material and want it adapted into an awesome film? The sooner we stop watching, the sooner Fox gives up and finally sets the rights free so that someone else can do it right.

The only downfall for this charactor is Ryan Renolds's 'Blade character' While watching Wolverine that was the first thing I saw; the same character from that film and it was hard to see the him as anything else - they were to similar. I just hope they can change him up a bit to get away from that.

quick thought

I'm gonna stay neutral to all this, but while they did seemingly rape the character it was also stated in the film that the project was not yet complete.

Perhaps the Highlander like rules of head removal don't apply to him. Perhaps they take him back underground, complete the project and turn him into the Deadpool we all know and love.

Perhaps... but probably not.

Marvel

Panthero,

The reason why the Daredevil, X-Men 3, Punisher and the Fantastic Four movies were so terrible is because those characters aren't MARVEL's property at the current time, those movies are made by different studios.

Hulk and Iron Man were made fully by Marvel's own movie production and so they had way more say in what happened to the characters.

I guess I could be wrong about this but I'm pretty sure this is the way things are.

I just don't get Marvel and they're movies. I mean they reboot and wanna bring actual actors to the game and make quality flicks. Iron Man and Incredible Hulk we're great. Robert Downey Jr. especially gave Marvel life again in my opinion. But the last X-men, Wolverine Origins, Punisher War Zone, Both Fantastic Four Movies were terrible and any spin off movies Im just dreading. I mean come on Magneto prequal, who gives a shit. Thor, who cares. Captain America and give Leo as much as he

Captain America and give Leo as much as he wants and bring some respect back to comic book fans Or is Batman the only franchise that will be done correctly, and Dc is pathetic in comparison with comics. Shame on Stan Lee and Hollywood.

Not to play the whole "Well I read the comics so there" game, but I honestly did read both Spider-Man and Deadpool growing up,and I for the life of my don't see how the films have messed up Spidey more than Deadpool. I mean JimmyArrow summed it up pretty well.

i did like the wolverine movie. except for 2 things: that they didnt go further into the origin stroy line, which was fantastic, and how they handled deadpool. i think the weapon IX thing was actually pretty cool, but it shouldnt have been deadpool. they ruined him. hopefully there is some truth to what ryan reynolds is saying, and the merc with a mouth we all love will be represented correctly in this movie

Uh

How did they NOT rape Deadpool? Yes he was part of the Weapon X program, but the only thing done to him was he got Wolvies healing factor and his face got disfigured. he didnt have blades for arms like Baraka, he didnt shoot lasers out of his eyes, he didnt teleport and they sealed off his mouth. How is that NOT raping Deadpool?

@powerbomb1411

I'd be intrigued to know what they would have had to do to rape the character. The "merc with a mouth" had no mouth, was controlled by a keyboard, had blades coming out of his arms, was shooting laser beams from his eyes and was seemingly killed off.

If a writer manage to find a way out of that hole, he deserves an Oscar...

Don't get me wrong. Wolverine sucked. But they didn't rape Deadpool at all. Look up some history on the character, then maybe you won't sound like your talking out of your ass hole. Tired of you guys writing articles you know absolutely NOTHING about.

You want to know a character that has been raped on screen.

Spider-Man.

We'll see..

I actually agree with Thoo, they dishonored Deadpool bigtime in Wolvie.

Also, when was the last time we heard an actor was actively involved in making a comic character's movie as good as it can be? Hugh Jackman and Wolverine (in all fairness, Jackman and Schreiber were the best things about the movie, but I don't see how much pull actors have with greedy, short-sigthted dinosaur movie studios like 20th Century Fox).

Again, a Deadpool film, if he does break the 4th wall and talk to the audience, could be a groundbreaking comic film. But it could also abysmally suck.

I'm getting tired of all the PG-13 family movies that are getting made too. I was thrilled when Punisher war zone was anounced as R, but then no one went to see it, so all those execs are going to stay with the PG-13 moneymakers.

Wake up and smell the fcken roses people. It will suck. Fox is doing it, they will make it a soft PG 13 if not a PG. They will do goofy things to the costumes and make it an overly action movie. But that of coarse is if they make it which they wont. You'll keep hearing little bits about it till Wolverine is released on DVD then it will die off. Too bad fox wont die off.

really?

Saying it was better then X3 or T4 is like saying it was a straight-to-dvd flick instead of a sci-fi original movie.

Wolverine was atrocious.. I mean AWFUL. It had all of the makings of a bad movie and then some. No back story or motives to half the characters, random action scenes and ridiculously flat one liners. Yeah, we get it, it had action scenes with Hugh Jackman, WOW! What a sloppy, messy, emotionally detached flick. I even liked T4 better. AND I HATED T4!

I have no confidence

I like the idea

Before the movie came out I wasn't that familiar with Deadpool. I bought the Hulk Vs Blu ray and became familiar then. I think that if you paid attention during the movie they said that they weren't finish with the project. So basically all those experiments might not have taken permanetly. I think they did that on purpose. i liked wolverine. I think it was good movie. Stop hating James!

Ryan from the get-go said (paraphrasing) "We changed him for Wolverine to fir the story [can't expect him to bad mouth it before it comes out I suppose] but if we were to do Deadpool movie I want all the elements" And he even included the one element of Deadpool I find the most negotiable and have always expected them to leave out, the breaking of the fourth wall. So while Ryan's assurance seems less likely BECAUSE of the Wolvie flick, I still think this is better than worse

The man-God (and personal man-crush)that is Hugh Jackman said the same thing about respecting and acknowledging the source material and looked at the P.O.S. that was Wolverine. Seriously, that movie was the equivalent of licking the distance between an uncleanly man's penis and his anus.

Now Ryan (my #2 man-crush) is also setting up shop at Fox and repeating the same mantra. *sigh*

Ryan Reynolds was the perfect Wade/Deadpool! His portrayal of Wade at the beginning was the best part of the entire film (unfortunately, the rest of the film was a huge let down). Weapon XI at the end was not Deadpool. That was some horrible ignorant trick to try and make him seem "cool" (which ultimately made him look like a shitty Baraka rip off with a very convenient combination of random-ass powers that were only there to make the fight more ridiculous). If they are going to make a

agree on Wolverine

Yeah I thought Wolverine was crap too. My two mates loved it and I thought it was just full of random cameos with no real story.
At least I know where Wolverine got his jacket from.
That was worth two hours and 9 quid.
