    It's sad all that discussion was killed. But hey, I doubt this is going to calm any of the fan's who feel they butchered what could have definitely been another Franchise Character.

    I too think that there's hope for the character yet, though I was heartily upset by what they did to him :(

    Given what I heard about where the character ends up, "Deadpool" has as much chance coming back as Darth Maul did in the SW Prequels. I'm sure some will concur...

    Darth Maul actually did resurface in the Star Wars comics as half android and had a duel with Darth Vader.

    That's comics, not movies... All mighty George doesn't count comics, books, or video games as canon.

    I think maybe George should of read into those things to see what the fans actually wanted.

    well, after following this thread for the past few months, i finally register and it all gets erased. Thems the breaks. Should have taken the opportunity to rename it "the Darth Barakapool thread"

    shame it had to be deleted, lots of good discussion in there

    i too, of course, still have hope for the character, especially since his comics have gotten more and more popular recently

    It had a ton of information about specific details and scenes from the leaked footage, so under the new policy they just removed the whole thing and started fresh.

    I'd be lying if I said if I didn't have Barakapool in the subject line for a second...

    I cant wait to see how this character is handled! Deadpool is so awesome, in his black and red mask and wise cracking ways. Some people like their superheroes with ridiculous powers like laser blasts and what have you...but not me. Deadpool is like a souped up ninja, and theres no way they can get something that easy and awesome wrong!

    YAY FOX! You have made this fanboys dream come true!

    I agree 100%! I've always described Deadpool to my non-comic-reading friends as "a badass mercenary with guns and swords, who happens to be crazy." Seems like a recipe for success to me! You'd have to be pretty silly to mess with that formula; A movie with Deadpool should practically sell itself.

    Yeah! Youd have to be a complete moron to spend hundreds of millions making a film that easy and screw it up! I guess we'll just have to wait and see, since no one has seen the film yet.

    In this recent issue of Empire, a cool looking poster is in it.

    A solo Deadpool movie wouldn't really appeal to a lot of people.

    If a Deadpool film were to be made, it comes down to the trailer and talk, to get the appeal going. The general public knew **** about Watchmen, but talk and promotion got the appeal going. unfortunately the general public did not go back for seconds.

    I think if you sold it right, it would. It would be important to make it clear that Deadpool is a funny character. The general public knows that Ryan Reynolds is a funny actor, so I think it would work. I mean, look at Hancock. Granted, Will Smith is the blockbuster go-to guy, but you essentially had a comedian making a funny superhero movie, and people bought it. It all depends on how they present the film. I think if they could do a good enough job explaining that Deadpool would be an action/comedy flick, people would pay to see it.

    That's why its so important that they introduce Wade in XMO:W, and give his character a lot of substance and decent background info. The point is to inroduce the cahracter and make a good first impression.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the character and would love to see it made but unless Marvel aquire the rights and make it R-Rated, I don't think anyone will get the movie they want.
