Now that some time has passed, I've been able to accept what was done to the character they tried calling "Deadpool" in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." Sure, when it comes to Hollywood adapted movies, you have to be willing to have some give-and-take when it comes to changes being made on characters. While I'm still unclear what the exact reason was to...evolve the Wade Wilson character in such a way, there was still the parts in the beginning we can hold onto. That and the little 'teaser' at the end (on some prints of the movie).
Ryan Reynolds has always been pretty vocal about wanting to bring the character to the big screen the proper way. In a recent interview with IGN, he mentions how some things were just out of his control. Despite what could be called a disaster with the character, he is still determined to make us proud.
But I'm really happy, in these early talks, that the studio is as obsessed with making it as close to the comic book source material as possible. And that's all I really needed to hear. Cuz I will husk-f*@k a herd of cattle to bring Wade Wilson to life as the real deal.
That's some dedication right there.
A question that may have been on the mind of Deadpool fans waiting for a true Deadpool movie was also addressed. How can we get the comic book version of Deadpool after the horrifying deeds that were bestowed upon poor Wade? In other words, how will this fit in or tie into the Wolverine movie?
Without saying too much, I can't imagine that there's gonna be any tie-in to the Wolverine movie at all.
Best thing I've heard all day. Well, besides my daughter saying "I love you" when she was off to school this morning.
