Re: Deadpool Spin-off Confirmed - Part 1
I agree that's the way to go. X-Force should definitely sell more due to being an ensemble of mutants and larger film but Deadpool is pretty well known now . As far as major X-Force players he's the most popular minus Logan. He has had mass video game and internet exposure, strong multiple solo comic sales, a film apperance and cartoons (Ultimate Spidey, Hulk VS). The only thingss he really is missing tht can increase his popularity minus X-Force is the solo film or a decent sized role in Apocalypse. He's in a better position right now in terms of popularity then say Iron Man, Kick Ass, Blade, Ghost Rider, Punisher and GOTG were before their films were announced. As far as pre movie exposure ya cant really ask for more cause he's been in just about every form of media and continues to sell solid and trend since 08.
The R rating is limiting, but the thing is pretty much guaranteed at the least immediate cult status. Really not much to lose imo as long as he is handled they way he should be. Even if it's R the kiddies are gonna love this one on video.
