    Apparently, folks, this is what Deadpool will look like in the upcoming Wolverine movie. Yes, that is the actual Deadpool action figure from the movie line.

    I am suddenly a little less excited about this movie. :shifty:

    Wow, he looks incredibly like an error message that says "forbiden".

    I take it they have completely eliminated the whole mask thing, to cover up his disfigured face. Kinda pointless, really.

    So he doesn't look like a poor man's Spider-Man.

    I'm not seeing the problem.

    Maybe he doesn't wear the mask until the end?

    I know he doesn't look like that through the whole movie regardless. Seems he'll have a few looks from the trailer.

    Why not wait 'til we know for sure?

    OH, my bad. I forgot. I mean... Wolverine's too tall!! Where's the yellow spandex?? They're using ORGANIC web shooters?!? :rolleyes:

    The arm blades are kind of excessive. It's almost like someone played way too much Mortal Kombat II and was desperate to put Baraka into the movie.

    Or there's a sequence in the movie where he added them to his arms as more of a mocking character moment directed against Logan. A sort of "I'll play your game, and even be better than you at it!" sort of thing.

    If I were watching Deadpool, and not Wolverine, I'd probably care more about this than I do.

    No, that's not Deadpool.

    That's the lovechild of Daken and Baraka.

    Deadpool came after my familiarity with the Marvel universe timeline ended. So I never understood what's so great about him, I think of a Dirty Harry movie everytime he's mentioned.

    What the hell is that? What part of that could even remotely be considered Deadpool? God damn it. Deadpool was the absolute number one biggest reason I was looking forward to this movie. To see that he has been reduced to that abortion makes me not want to see the film at all.

    More importantly, will there be a Gambit action figure? If so, what does it look like?

    That looks more like another character. I sincerely doubt that is Deadpool.

    It wouldn't surprise me if they did this.

    No, it is indeed Deadpool, post-experimentation / disfigurement. There's a brief clip of it in the recent trailer, seen in this screenshot.

    Seeing the Internet get butt-hurt over the film adaptation of something that spawned from Rob Liefeld's desire to draw Deathstroke, so he just ripped off the design, makes me laugh. That's the "abortion." Well, that and the baby-faced Wolverine with his hair all done up for the senior prom.

    I'm not seeing this now. It's Ninja gear or no sale.

    Well, with as many characters they're trying to cram into this movie, it's likely it'll be a clusterf*ck on the scale of Ratner's X3.....

    Know what? I'm sick of that "Deadpool is just a ripoff of Deathstroke" thing. That may have been some of the motivation behind his creation, but the two characters are incredibly different in personality. Deathstroke is a serious character, while Deadpool is a wisecracker. Also, why should fans of the character not want to see him done properly on film? The fourth wall breaking, wise-cracking, merc with a mouth, with ninja gear and a red and black suit IS Deadpool. Where the hell do you get off insulting people that say what is true? If you're not a fan of the character, fine. But don't hate on the people that are. I'm sure you would feel the same way if a character you like were as thouroughly butchered as it appears Deadpool has been in this movie.
