Seconded. It's a shame Kassir's Deadpool doesn't get more love. He's the number one thing I remember from the Ultimate Alliance games.
Something cool this movie could do is having Ryan Reynolds as the main Deadpool, but the voices in his head be Nolan North and John Kassir.
Nolan North would be the only acceptable alternative to Ryan Reynolds, but the Voices In My Head suggestion could be cool. And let's be fair. Reynolds keeps in insanely great shape. I don't have a qualifier to that, he's just a sexy man.
Would Nolan North be the Yellow Boxes or the White Boxes?
Now, next question: What do the different boxes do?
The only downside to the boxes is that they're a gag based specifically on a comic book narrative, and stops working outside of that since there's no context for it - it just becomes something quirky instead of meta humor. In a film, it'd probably be better if they did the yellow boxes gag with Internal Monologue and The Narrator tropes instead.
He should totally do his own dvd commentary, too.
Also, it'd be neat if they referenced the movie's Development Hell with a gag similar to one they pulled in Marvel Ulimate Alliance, where he takes the producers/directors/etc hostage or something.
A movie like this begs for an Animated Credits Opening.
While it would be a clever Mythology Gag, I would hope they wouldn't do that, since the multiple voices in 'Pool's head were a lame gimmick in the comics, and a result of Flanderization.
And besides, they'd probably get other big-name stars to voice them.

But I love Deadpool's head voices....

Yeah, even though the voiced were instituted by a less than stellar writer, other writers have used them, so they've become a big part of the character, and they can be handled well by the right writers.
Also, on DVD/Blu-Ray releases of a Deadpool movie, when you activate subtitles, I'd be so happy if Deadpool's (and Deadpool's alone) subtitles were all yellow as a nice Mythology Gag.
Or they carefully plan it out while filming so that Deadpool will actually look at the subtitles from time to time, to double check if he heard something right.
Will Ferrell should be one of the voices in Deady's head. "What, you were expecting Nolan North or something?"
"Yes. Yes they were."
"Hey, at least they KNOW who I am!"

Geez, what's with Fox getting rid of the videos of this test footage?
Aren't they noticing how much praise we're giving this?
P.S. I saw it myself a while back. So nice, I wanted to see it more than twice.

Rhett Reese tries to gauge internet appeal to see a Deadpool movie should it get made in full over the Twitters.
I loved this. I've been watching it repeatedly for a couple of days now. Never stops being funny.
If they plan/write this right, a Deadpool movie could hit right at the peak of superhero movie universe building from both Marvel and DC and be a perfect satire of the genre.
They've been tossing around Deadpool movie crud for years now, it didn't happen then and isn't going to suddenly happen now.
Saved from Development Hell exists for a reason. It took close to 20 years for Spider-Man to get made after various pitches and scripts.

Ant Man was in development before Iron Man was green-lit. Things can change.
I dread the likelihood of a Deadpool movie and the TVT page winding up unreadable thanks to the Self Demonstrating humor.
I seriously don't know why we even have Self Demonstrating pages.
People find it entertaining.
I don't mind it for some of the trope pages, but it doesn't really work for character pages, because characters (especially in comics) change so frequently with different authors and plotlines that you'd have to modify them constantly to keep them "in-character". And people disagree about characters enough that you're likely to end up with one of 1) one view on the character dominating all the others and determining the tone of the page; 2) a page that sounds completely inconsistent, which is more jarring when it's being written in first-person; or 3) an Edit War.
