If you read comics these days, you probably notice how many books Deadpool is appearing in. He’s really become the modern Wolverine and is by far one of the most popular characters in all Marvel comics. The Merc with a Mouth made an appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but they screwed him up so bad in that it led fans to break the fourth wall…of the movie theater as they rampaged out of the movie in rage. Thankfully, the upcoming Deadpool movie will remedy that, and in the same issue of Empire Magazine where Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed X4 and X5 she talked about it:
“total reboot. We’re either going to pretend that didn’t happen, or mock it, which he could doâ€¦itâ€™s an R script, itâ€™s really irreverent and violent. Right away, weâ€™re out of the X-Men world.â€
â€œHeâ€™s very involved, Ryan. Heâ€™s working with the writers on the screenplay and it is as much as it is ours. Iâ€™m tellinâ€™ ya, itâ€™s true to the comic. Youâ€™ll see all of them. Youâ€™ll see Wade Wilson, the good-looking Ryan Reynolds! Youâ€™ll see Deadpool in his costume and youâ€™ll see the cancer-scarred face.â€
The script for Deadpool leaked back in October, and if Fox has the balls to let them film it as written (it is very R) we’ll be getting the best comic book movie ever made. Period. The script is beyond awesome. And despite what she says, it’s not totally out of the X-Men world. There’s one great cameo in it from a popular X-Man.
