im not worried about Fox fking it up. Im worried that its gonna get a sh1tty scypt and noone would want to watch it. I cant picture anyone say "Hey remember that ugly bold guy with lasers from Wolverine movie? Well, there's a movie made about him, wanna go see it?"
Azula: My mommy didn't love me so I'm going to burn down your village.
Wade's scene in the elevator was the best thing about the Wolverine movie, for me.
It definitely captured that mind-boggling annoyance of Deadpool, yet it's also funny and you can tell that it's appreciated by SOME of the people who are around him. I was a bit iffy about the whole part where he deflected bullets, because while I don't doubt Deadpool may be able to do that, he probably wouldn't.
I do not doubt that Ryan Reynolds is the best guy for the job that we know of. He's a massive fan of the comics to the point that he can quote Deadpool, he seems really enthusiastic about making this as faithful as possible.
"As possible" meaning that yes, there will be changes. I don't see why there ever needs to be, but there always are. However, as Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk showed, you can change the origin and still make it a massively faithful movie, why? Because there are two kinds of faithful; character and story.
Were Iron Man and Hulk massively faithful STORY movies? Not necessarily. Should they have been? Yeah. Were they good anyway? Yeah. However, were they faithful CHARACTER movies? Absolutely. I don't think there's been a better casting than Robert Downey Jr. Regardless of the story, Iron Man was Iron Man.
As long as they keep the story faithful ENOUGH, I will tolerate it so long as Deadpool is Deadpool to the max.
Reynolds is not a huge actor, never has he had a major movie role (Critically or financially) outside of chick flicks. So, will he sacrifice Deadpool for the money made by a blockbuster? Will he swallow his ego and allow himself to be under a mask most of the time and if not, allow himself to be made to look horrifically scarred? Tobey Maguire wasn't huge, but he balanced the mask time/unmasked time well, I think.
Reynolds has already said they're gonna have THE suit and THE scarred face. Not A suit, THE suit. I can understand X-Men not wearing yellow spandex, but Deadpool's is a red and black mercenary/ninja outfit. It's not outlandish. I also remember him saying that they were currently working out what the story would be and who'd be in it.
My dream would be Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, in a Quentin Tarantino directed movie, with tons of Kill Bill style violence. Gory, but playfully so. It'd be hilarious, violent and exciting. However, that's not gonna happen. I just hope what we get is no less than Deadpool deserves.
I hear they're gonna give him the ability to take powers from dead or injured mutants, which sucks. However, it might be passable if they just don't use it stupidly. NO more eye beams, please.
Teleporting...fine. They've got a loophole there, because he does have a teleporter, it's just not in his powers.
I won't hold it against Reynolds if they f*ck it up, because he's one man and Fox gets what Fox wants. That said, the only people who should be able to judge this properly are real Deadpool fans. Not internet Deadpool fans.
People who see a few funny panels and think that's all there is to him need to stop the delusional sense of criticism. I've read Deadpool's comics since '93/'94, I own every main 616 appearance he's ever made, and I don't believe Wade Wilson was bad in the movie. Quite the opposite. Deadpool, though? Horrid.
I know personally what i've seen of Deadpool is some of those "few funny panels" floating around on the net and also his recent apperence in Wolverine Origins, A back issue of New Mutants of Deadpools first apperence which was included with Wolverine Origin #25 and scans from his latest comics.
Deadpool Will Break the Fourth Wall
July 5, 2009
Empire chatted with Ryan Reynolds and asked him an interesting question about the upcoming "X-Men" spin-off, Deadpool, in which he'll reprise his role from the "Wolverine" movie.
Reynolds says Deadpool will breach the fourth wall: "Break the fourth wall? Oh yeah, he's got to. I want to see him break the Great Wall"... "The studio's working on a script and trying to find a director. The main goal is to make sure it stays close to the source material."
the fourth wall breakage could be interesting...but not sure how it's going to be done effectively. i mean, most of the time when a character in a film talks to the audience it doesn't seem right, just seems cheesy...but we'll see.
i've still got an open mind about this film, because i'm yet to see the wolverine movie and think it's rubbish.
I don't question his love for Deadpool, although nobody has really quizzed him on the comics.
I question how much influence he'll have. That and the fact that I do not know if he wants to be Deadpool more than he wants to be Deadpool accurately.
Could be horrible, could be amazing. Far too little to judge right now. I'm gonna go with mishandled, simply because Marvel themselves can't seem to figure out how to handle him currently; why would Fox?
After finally watching HOT FUZZ on the weekend, I think Marvel should get Edgar Wright as Director, without hesitation. I don't know why he's worked on an ANT MAN film proposal - his exaggerated style is perfectly suited to the Deadpool comics. Simon Pegg could even come along in a supporting role, or co-write with Wright as he usually does.

although i have mixed feelings about movies being in 3-d, i feel like a deadpool 3-d movie could be a very promising outlet for allowing the character to break the fourth wall very well. he could make some witty comment about how annoying they are to wear or something and just come out of the screen when he wants to talk to the audience. eh. i don't know, but i'm still really excited about this movie happening
