Deadpool is one of the most interesting characters in the Marvel universe. Though he may have started off as a Deadshot ripoff (and just like that, Slade Wilson became Wade Wilson), he has evolved into a hilarious, mischievous, often vile anti-hero that many comic fans have really fallen in love with. From his self-deprecating humor to his love of Bea Arthur, there is much to the character that speaks the weirdest and darkest in all of us. With news of the Deadpool movie looming, seemed like a fair time to let the studio know what real Deadpool fans want and what we better not get (not like they could possibly give us a crappier Deadpool than the one they butchered already in Wolverine: Origins).
As you can see above, they got this one right. Hell, this got this beyond right already. If anything at all bodes well for the Deadpool movie, it is this two minutes right here. I don’t even need a trailer. Hell, the Saved by the Bell reference is exactly what ‘Pool would do in that situation.
That is one less thing we have to worry about. Well played, people. Moving on….
Even though the Hulk VS. animated movie was only PG-13, it still got away with things they would not have gotten away with in a regular film with the same rating. Namely, all the brutal violence perpetrated against Deadpool. The Deadpool movie needs to go the same route. The R rating looks like it will, which is great.
What is so sickly wonderful about Deadpool is he kills without remorse, and his insane healing factor means he can endure some BRUTAL deaths. If Deadpool is not trying to hold his own decapitated head on at one point in this film, that is a missed opportunity that will not sit well with me (and my two other voices in my head).
Sorry, but Deadpool loves himself the ladies, and can you blame him? Ladies are all soft and sexy and stuff. Deadpool is also achingly lonely, which is half the reason he is so horny all the time. But people need to understand going in, this is part of what makes the Deadpool Deadpool.
If they are going for the hard R it seems they are going for, I think it is safe to say Deadpool may do some motor-boating. I am not implying I want stupid Duke Nukem levels of sexism, but I do want a real representation of Deadpool. You know, the one who pisses of feminists?
Bea Arthur Shout-Outs
Whether you like it or not, Deadpool is in love with Bea Arthur. Yes, the manly one from that 80’s show about the old ladies, The Golden Girls. You don’t need to know why, you don’t need to understand it, and you don’t need to look too deeply into it. You just need to know it exists and is a thing, and if it is not brought up in the Deadpool movie, many fans will have to use their inner monologue to talk them out of lighting chairs on fire in the movie theater.
Just keeping in real, yo.
Twisted Inner Monologue
We already have news that the wonderfully hilarious T.J Miller from Silicon Valley will be the voice of ONE of Deadpool’s inner voices (we have yellow box voice and white box voice in the comic) but this leaves us wondering if Deadpool will have ALL the many inner voices represented on film. Keep in mind, they are written as separate entities, but that could be hard to keep track of in a movie. The key thing being, one of those voices is always breaking the fourth wall, making references to the fact he is in a comic book (or game, in some cases).
The main question here is, will there be a voice that breaks the fourth wall and addresses that this is, indeed, a Deadpool movie? There (bleeping) better be!
We all know Marvel loves rubbing its own back, so realistically, there will be some cameos. I say they go all-in, bring in a few C-list bad guys and have Deadpool desecrate them. If you never read the Deadpool storyline where he goes up against Bulls-eye (of Daredevil infamy), I cannot recommend it enough. Give us some cool cameo like that, and then let Deadpool kill the bastard. Brutally.
We have thoroughly enjoyed all of Marvel’s PG-13 stuff up to now, but Marvel really needs to up its game with this one. The casting of Reynolds was brilliant, and if they ret-con his last story in Origins, this could be the comic book movie us adult fans have been clamoring for years now.
Speaking of Deadpool, one things he loves is to kill. He kills with such glee. So it only makes sense you go from reading this to reading….
