Re: This is Deadpool?

To me, it's not 'really' Deadpool unless he breaks the fourth wall at least once. But the description you provided is better, IMO.

The thing I hate about the changes is that Marvel loves to makeover the comics in the style of the movies in an attempt to market the books to nooblets, how long before face paint Baraka Deadpool shows up in a comic?

Wow...this thread is reminding me of 1999.
Exactly my thoughts!

And the funniest (saddest?) thing is, I've been reading he basically only looks like this for a single fight scene. It's not his look for the movie.

But the fanboys on the internet will continue ranting and raving until they actually see the thing. Keep this thread bookmarked, so we can read the apologies for overreacting after the movie opens.

I've said this before and I'll say it again. When casting for a superhero film, cast an talented up and comer who is comfortable behind a mask for the majority of a film and can act with their voice. They're out there.
Hardly an 'up-and-comer', but to this day I remain impressed with the nuanced performance Hugo Weaving delivered as V (in 'V for Vendetta', of course) with only voice and gestures. But then, I've always thought Weaving has a great voice.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
Trent, that's an amazing example. Here's another example, even though he's not a masked superhero: Anthony Daniel's C-3PO. Even though he was portraying a machine, every emotion he had was expressed solely through his body movements (it helped that he had a career as a mime) and his VOICE. But if people think that unmasked and unmasking heroes is the way to go, I have four words for them: Albert Pyun's Captain America.

'Nuff said.

Re: This is Deadpool?

I really hope it turns out to be another character. If not, they did an awful job teasing us by showing Ryan Reynolds with basically the rest of the costume except for the mask.

Re: This is Deadpool?

Maybe that version of Deadpool is just a temporary after he gets all healing factored?

We can only hope. But those blaaaades...
