What the hell.

That actually looks like a proper Deadpool. Costume, attitude, talk and all, even. This is also not happening at all, right? sad

If this does end up happening, I take back what I've said long, long ago: A Deadpool movie might work.

Reynolds said that they had a script that A LOT of people liked, including himself, but the overall tone of the movie made the studio really nervous. Deadpool doesn't have a lot of mainstream recognition outside of the rabid comics fanbase (what recognition he does have is in various media with him riding the coattails of Wolverine). And the extremely flippant attitude may be difficult to sustain/stay fresh for an entire movie, it works great for a short demo movie like that but what if it runs out of steam after a half hour?

At the least it would be fun as a change of pace from the more somber or kid-friendly comic book movies, but it's also hard to tell if it could sustain its own franchise.

Was this CG like the Resident Evil film with Leon S Kennedy, or was this mix live action with Deadpool in CG?

It was live action. I assume this was just CGI for budgetary reasons.

[up][up][up][up]So instead do like Pixar does and have a Deadpool short in front of each of your films. At only 5-10 minutes it's funny without being too long and losing what's good about it. Hell, have him be the one to provide the "no cell phone" warning.

This needs to be made by thunder. Ryan Reynolds makes a much better Deadpool than Green Lantern

Eh...I can't say I'm much a fan, at least of any attempt to merge him with either the X-Men movies or the MCU (even though I know that's not going to happen as long as X-Men are with Fox).

Comics, it works, but movies...he feels way too out of place trying to stick him next to Wolverine or Tony Stark and trying to merge the atmosphere of his world with that of the others without either making it difficult to take the X-Men seriously or neutering Deadpool of what makes him 'Deadpool'.

I figure they could do a Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead type thing and have his movie weave through the background of the rest of the X-Men universe, kind of a simultaneous clearing up/establishing of canon as of the new universe and a meta adventure through it, as Deadpool could not only be the only one aware of the altered timeline, but also of the continuity snarl that cropped up before it.

So it would basically be "Deadpool does a mission while dealing with the confusion of the new continuity - hilarity ensues" in addition to the usual "Deadpool deals with the inherent silliness of the genre" bits as well. And since the circumstances surrounding Weapon X are likely to be highly different in this timeline, they could even use him to expand it.

It's worth noting the movie was not necessarily canon anyway. The script opens with a truly hilarious scene where X-Men Origins: Wolverine is just revealed to be a Movie Within A Movie, one that Deadpool declares to be shitty and inaccurate.

Funny thing is, that would be even more fitting now, in the new continuity.

Isn't that the kind of warning that would give people the idea to do it?

There's more to Deadpool than a flippant attitude, damn it. A Deadpool movie where the zany humor and pop culture references aren't used to mask Deadpool's self-loathing and painful memories isn't worth my time.

[up][up][up] The leaked script actually showed Deadpool's more tragic side quite a lot. I believe there was even one full-on Tearjerker montage about the time he spent incarcerated by Dr.Killebrew.

Then THAT runs the risk of extreme Mood Whiplash, to have a character so zany and comically violent suddenly angst about a tragic past. None of it is impossible, but it is a gamble and a knife edge to walk on.

And then he reveals he was faking the Angst to make the opponent think he had gotten to him and introduces Mr Katana to the Nads brothers.

The madness is catching.

I thought the script balanced it pretty well. It had hilarious and zany moments and tragic moments in good combination. Sometimes in the same scene (I also believe there was a montage of Deadpool killing himself over and over and over in a way that's both tragic and hilarious)

Which he is actually doing as he is warning not to do it.
