Deadpool greenlit for 2016

Well, it looks like the power of the Internet and the fan reaction to the leaked Deadpool test footage has resulted in Fox green lighting a Deadpool movie.

I am currently at work, and therefore cannot get youtube on my computer here. However, if someone could post a link to that test footage that would be sweet. Thanks.

This movie has the potential to be so awesome. Let's just hope Fox does it right.

Re: Deadpool greenlit for 2016

The test footage was great, and I think this has a lot of potential. But, hopefully they'll do it right. I can easily see this being a generic, watered down PG-13 action movie. It may be unrealistic, but an R-Rated deadpool would be awesome. Either way, I'm excited about the possibility of getting a Deadpool movie.

Re: Deadpool greenlit for 2016

I can easily see this being a generic, watered down PG-13 action movie - and Deadpool acknowledging it as such in the very first scene, vowing to make fun of the limits of that rating throughout the film (BLEEPs, black boxes, miscolored green/blue/orange blood, strategically placed props everywhere). "Just bear with me, okay? I promise, I'll make it up to you on the Unrated Extended home video release with alternate EVERYTHING (plus Bea Arthur CGI cameo). Just help me make more at the box office than Johnny Depp's last film first. Shouldn't be too hard."

If they do a hilarious over the top job of bleeping and blurring and black-boxing things, I think a PG-13 version could work.

There is no way the movie will be R rated, none.

They should have never canceled the movie years ago.

Yeah, it's more than likely going to be a PG-13 movie. And let's be honest, you can get away with a ton with a PG-13 rating these days, particularly in regards to violence. I'm more concerned about whether they can nail the zany, batshit crazy tone of Deadpool and his world. If they stick to something close to what they came up with in that test footage, they'll be fine.

That could work for me. Seems like a good compromise as long as they acknowledge it in the movie.

Re: Deadpool greenlit for 2016

I dug the test reel plenty ("Just call me Angel... of the Morning, An-gel"), but can't help but wondering if such an amoral, motormouth character can really sustain interest over the course of a full feature. Half an hour, sure, but 90+ minutes? I dunno. I kinda wish this movie would be an anthology - say, three 30-40 minute films about three different mutants and their stories. The other two movies could be about, I dunno, Gambit and Storm? One heist short film, one origin story, one something else? (And having less time spent on Deadpool would make the PG-13 issue easier also.) The key, naturally, would be to not step on the toes of X-Men storylines while still hooking in caual moviegoing fans. ("Just touch my face before you leave me... oh my darling...")

^What a compelling counter-example! Or it would be, if Ferris were amoral or a gleeful killer. Not to mention a masked one. Um, so, actually, that's not such a great counter-example. Try again?

Re: Deadpool greenlit for 2016

Yeah I have to agree it seems like a difficult character to make work over the course of an entire movie, and that it might not take long for his nonstop quipping to simply become really annoying. But if nothing else it would be a very different and unique superhero movie.

I just hope the movie is as good as the leaked script I read... because that was perfect.
