Having seen Wade Wilson AKA Deadpool in his first live action appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009, i would say it was bittersweet, there was excitement but also disappointment with the way his character was adapted in the final scenes.
We now have the great feeling of knowing that there will be a solo Deadpool movie.
I still can’t believe it’s actually happening, after all the teasing we are finally getting a Deadpool movie, get your chimichanga’s ready for some ‘Merc with a Mouth’ wisecracks and antics on the big screen in (hopefully) early 2016.
1. Awesome Test Footage
Firstly, Deadpool singing along to Hollaback Girl left me in giggles and then he goes full on witty and i’m laughing out loud. Just awesome.
Watching the test footage was like watching the comic books come to life, it makes you wonder why it took so long to get the go ahead. The leaked footage shows just a tiny bit if awesomeness that we can expect from the film.
2. The Suit
“I bet you’re wondering why the red suit? well thats so bad guys can’t see me bleed”-Deadpool
Did anyone else squeal when Ryan Reynolds tweeted the official Deadpool suit? Show of hands please! I am so glad the suit is mirrored just like the comic books, this gives me positive awesome Deadpool vibes.
3. Ryan Reynolds
We saw him play as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and since then I can’t imagine any other actor to step into his shoes. Aside from the direction that 20th Century Fox took Deadpool in X-men, they have now confirmed he will be returning as the Deadpool we know and love. A sense of relief came over me, with a side of ‘OMG RYAN REYNOLDS!’ ness.
4. X-Men: Apocalypse
Deadpool is due to be released 3 months after X-Men: Apocalypse, therefore indicating some sort of tie-in that could potentially happen. I’m feeling a post credit scene.
5. The Rating
The big question playing on the majority of the Deadpool fans, will it be a PG-13 or will it get an R rating? Ryan Reynolds has himself admitted that he would love for it to get a R rating, after all we are so used to seeing Deadpool slaying with his swords and his automatic rifles, abit like the 2013 Deadpool video game.
After all the speculation, Ryan Reynolds and Mario Lopez made a humourous April Fools video which you can still watch on youtube.
6. Female Lead
You may recognise her from Firefly and Homeland, Morena Baccarin has been confirmed to play the female lead in the film. Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed who she will play rumour has it that it could be Copycat who was formerly part of X-Force.
Alongside Morena, MMA talent Gina Carano will be playing Angel Dust, an adrenaline filled mutant with superhuman strength.
Knowing that Deadpools love interest is most likely to be Copycat, this leads us to getting more information about X-Force. Whether it will be in the movie blatantly or just subletly, it will be welcomed by many fans who have awaited for so long.
8. Deadpool’s Humour
One of the main reasons Deadpool is so awesome is because of his uncalled for humour, fans who read the comics will love that the humour will be bought into the movie on a full blown level. Also his bizarre fascination with chimichangas just wins me over again and again.
9. Fourth Wall
Our favourite anti-hero is pretty awesome at breaking the fourth wall, if the writers can transfer this across to the movie as well as the comics then i will be a happy bunny. If we can take anything from the leaked footage its that the humour is on point therefore i don’t doubt the fourth wall being broken between reality and film by Deadpool.
10. The Director
Tim Miller is best known for his creative direction work for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Thor : The Dark World, he will making his debut as a film director for Deadpool. How exciting to have someone as talented and newly recognised as Tim to work on this film, just another reason why the Deadpool movie will be awesome.
I for one cannot wait to see Deadpool’s wackiness in the form of a real live action movie, whether it’s rated PG-13 or R I will still go watch it and i will love it because I know how well Ryan will will play the character.
Are you looking forward to the movie?
