Fox moves forward with "Deadpool" spin-off

I have no idea how considering how they bastardized Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine but not surprisingly 20th Century Fox is moving forward with a spin-off featuring Ryan Reynolds slated to reprise his role as Wade Wilson aka Deadpool in his own film, at this point titled simply Deadpool.

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=55139

Since Reynolds' performance as Wade was one of the best things about that movie, I welcome a spin-off if anything to see Reynolds again in the role. However I just knew the moment he was cast -- and the above article confirms it -- that he was cast only to secure a spin-off after Wolverine. So I want to be excited but everything feels so commercial that I have a hard time mustering up any excitement.

It makes you wonder what in the world possessed them to take the tact they did with the project. It doesn't seem to make much sense from any perspective.

Colored me a bright shade of excited. And he is easily salvageable from the end of the Wolverine movie.

I didn't and won't be seeing Wolverine.

But, I will see a Deadpool movie, barring terrible reviews and word-of-mouth.

That character was lame. Why would anyone want to see a movie about him?

I wonder why people read comics about him but to each their own I suppose.

For what its worth Slade Wilson was played by Ryan Rynolds and Weapon XI/Deadpool was played by another actor altogether, Scott Adkins.

They never called Ryan Rynolds anything other than Slade despite the Deadpool moniker on the IMDB page. Stryker did call Weapon XI Deadpool once though.

Its easy to go two ways with the character.
1- Stryker/Sabretooth simplied lied about Wilson being dead(not a stretch) and Rynolds comes kills this Weapon XI and takes the name Deadpool.

2-It is the same character and Rynolds reprises the role in a retooled manner to resemble the comic character more closely.


My question is this. Would FOX need to attach the 'X-Men' moniker to the title? Thus giving them another avenue to keep the legality of all X-Men associated characters at FOX.

Re: Fox moves forward with "Deadpool" spin-off

^Yeah. You could pretty easily say that the Deadpool we saw at the end of Wolverine was just a clone that happened to look like Wade because it used some of his DNA. The real Wade might be locked up some place or possibly on the run. There are all kinds of motives for Stryker to lie about it, he lied about almost everything else...

Wasn't one of the bonus endings a scene with Ryan Reynolds as Wade looking at Weapon XI?

Re: Fox moves forward with "Deadpool" spin-off

I would be excited about this. But this is Fox. It's been proven time and time again they are incapable of making anything good. Infact, they pretty much just rape anything cool about the comics that would work on the screen. His portrayal in Origins was nothing short of criminal. I was willing to overlook Galactus has a fucking cloud or Doctor Doom as Lex Luthor or Cyclops's creative anal buggering but this is the last straw. Fuck Fox. If they make it, it's going to be just as awful as Origins is.

A Deadpool movie should be idiot-proof to make. You put Ryan Reynolds in a red ninja costume. You have him act like Ryan Reynolds. You have him shoot and stab people. The End. How hard is that to fuck up? Does that really need to be improved on? How is making him a Mortal Kombat character really all that better?

That character was lame. Why would anyone want to see a movie about him?
If you've ever read a Deadpool comic(judging by this statemnt you obviously haven't) you'd know the answer as to why.

This is going to be a hard sell to general audiences. Most have never heard of Deadpool, and he did not make a very good showing of himself in Wolverine.

It'd be cool if they adopt one of Deadpool's more entertaining character traits - the fact that he knows he's a comic book character.
