Thank Deadpool It’s Friday (He Got a Movie B@#$%^es)
Well by now you have heard the news, on February 12th 2016 we will finally be getting a Deadpool Movie! That’s right in case you were under a rock, we are finally getting a movie about the Merc-with-a-Mouth! This is very exciting news. It has been a long time coming, longer for some of us than others, but it has finally happened. Now with the “Leak” of the official footage and the Ryan Reynolds interview about the footage it seems like this was just a slow release to gauge the internet’s excitement for a Deadpool movie. With an overwhelming positive reception it seems like Fox got the affirmation it was looking for and they pulled the trigger and made the announcement today.
Now we have already had a Deadpool in an X-Men Movie but not many fans liked it. That was a poor way to put it… The internet revolted. I didn’t hate it, in fact Ryan Reynolds take on Wade Wilson was very impressive and even his stunts as the “Deadpool” at the end of the movie was great. It just wasn’t the Deadpool I was hoping for, but hey it was a Deadpool. This “Barakapool” as it was named was a Weapon X blunder that was a farce on the screen, but it was redeemed at the very end of the movie when Ryan Reynolds head appeared after being decapitated and said shh, breaking the 4th wall which is a Deadpool staple.
The time to rejoice about this is now, because as we all know the time to bitch and moan about this is on the horizon. Deadpool is a delicate subject, because his character has spanned 3 different decades and many different fans have their own visions on how they want their Deadpool to be. Some want him to constantly break the 4th wall, some want nothing but gore, others slap stick comedy, and some even debate how his voice should sound. There is Fabian Nicieza’s version of Deadpool that is much less pop culture based and more of a fast talking say the first thing to come to his mind type of crazy. Joe Kelly’s version of Deadpool was much more quick witted and pop culture based, while Gale Simone and Daniel Way used edgier type of comedy in their portrayal of Deadpool. I think one thing is certain for this movie, as long as he got cancer and acquired his healing factor from the Weapon X program in exchange for his services it will satisfy the masses.
Now we all have a wishlist of things we would love to see in this movie and I for one am excited for the literally hundreds of Easter Eggs that they could and should do for this movie. I would love to see a Rhino Key chain Easter Egg (I know I know Sony whatever).
