Dig that leaked Deadpool footage? The writer/producer wants your help!

08.07.2014

DEADPOOL sounds like one of the greatest comic book films that's never been made. There's an audience for it and that was made abundantly clear when test footage was leaked showing the titular anti-hero in action via some nifty special effects and a performance from the Ryan Reynolds we all know and love (not this GREEN LANTERN/R.I.P.D. bullshit). There's a lot of hurdles in the way of getting a Deadpool flick that'll do the character justice, but writer/producer Rhett Reese is calling out to fans to let Twentieth Century Fox know that they want Deadpool, and they want him now!

Can a Twitter campaign change the course of film history? Stranger things have happened, but Twitter is not exactly the deciding factor on whether or not films are greenlit. Still, I don't see any harm it could do to promote what I feel is a good cinematic cause. Even if it doesn't happen, it's good to know you're not alone when you're passionate about something. If anything, a shit-load of tweets will keep players like Rhett Reese and Ryan Reynolds fighting to get this film made. If that's the case, I can re-tweet every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

The last line of the clip, "Hi Tom!" This was pretty ballsy of them to call out the former head at Fox and the guy responsible for fucking up Deadpool in Origins.

If they do this, I can care less if it's R or PG-13. The only difference is there isn't blood splashing everywhere and you can drop the F bomb once. That clip did not show any blood, even when he was holding that decapitated head up there was no blood.

Conflicted. Footage was good. But I've been reading a few different things that feature Deadpool (Remender's Uncanny X-Force, new Thunderbolts, and new Deadpool), and I'm not sure a solo Deadpool film would really work. I'll support, I'll go see it, and I think it'll have some cool shit in it, but ultimately I think his character works SO much better in a team, even if he's just one other character.

The best way to make this movie:

Deadpool is obviously a comic book character aimed at mature readers, right? Make this movie exactly like the previous Marvel Knights stuff we've gotten over the past 8 years or so. Give it a micro budget of around $30-$45 million (and I know it's possible since movies District 9 and Pain & Gain), then release the movie during Hollywood dumping ground season. Hell, if anything, release the damn movie on Valentines Day weekend and pit it against Endless Love 2 or something.
But this Rhett

But this Rhett Reese guy is pathetic. Why do you need to do a stupid Twitter poll to convince the studio to make a movie like this? Comic book movies are at an all time high at the box office. It's all a matter of finding a director who can pitch the concept well to the studio. Plus, Ryan Reynolds is the star of the film, get him to take a pay cut (his career really needs some help) and hire a bunch of no names or B actors for the rest of the cast. Shoot the movie in Toronto, and bam you have a small budget R-rated comic book flick, than can definitely kick some box office ass...if marketed correctly as well.

Now we know why it was leaked. The Corinthian Leather joke was what did it for me.

It was leaked because my friend watched it and thought it was awesome and thought it needed to see the light of day. Funny reading all these comic con theories and studio push theories about why the footage got out.

Granted the test footage animation was crude, but this IS how Deadpool should be done. Reynolds knocks it out of the park on a 2min video and with a full blown script, this has HUGE potential for the fanbase...so long as Marvel is brave enough for something closer to R rated, or on the cusp on R rated. I would LOVE to see this movie and hope someday soon that it does happen, before Reynolds gets too old.

That vid was lame, but I'd see a Deadpool movie for sure.

I think the majority on this site knows that I'm a huge fan of Reynolds and there are very few people on this site who want this film made more then me. I agree that his career isn't going in the direction that it should have, but I feel with a film, character, and content like this it would be utilized perfectly with his persona. So I really hope one day this film gets made because the Deadpool fan in me would love to see this character come to life.

But along with the tweets, they should

But along with the tweets, they should also do a kickstarter as well. If the number of tweets are multiple, and there's money being funded by the fans to the kickstarter, then that only proves more that there is an audience waiting for this film to happen.

And for the tidbit, "Let's see if they're wearing there brown pants" always makes me chuckle.

Any kind of publicity helps now a days. And maybe even with a big ground swell on Twitter, maybe FOX will look into this. I retweeted it because I have Twitter. It's worth a shot. What harm could it do? (I hope I'm not eating those words)

I love Ryan Reynolds and for the most part, he's been utilized in the worst ways in his acting career. Get him in this.
