Ah, comics... where good comic book writers can't get a book to write, but any D-List celebrity or someone who has had their name in the credits of a TV show can walk into DC or Marvel and walk out as writer of a book.

I wonder what happened to that script that was floating around. I read it and liked it quite a bit.

Just do the damn movie. Ryan Reynolds wants it done. And he wants it to be R-rated and have absolutely no ties or connections to that abortion they called Deadpool in Origins.

Make it happen

anything is better than Way constantly ignoring continuity for the sake of lols.

"Marvel NOW!"? Are they doing some kind of reboot, like DC?

I know right. It's the strangest thing in the world to me how that script hasn't happened yet. Everyone wants it done. The main actor even wants it done, and is happy to do it.

What makes it even more crazy is that marvel can spin these movies into Avenger cameos for an eventual civil war movie. Why wouldn't you want to make more comic movies?

I think I'd be more excited if it was Remender doing it. His Deadpool in X-Factor has been great. Has anybody read "The Last Christmas", the comic the article says Posehn did? Was it any good?
 
2012-08-03 12:43:05 PM  
Can we please have a montage of him involved in a bunch of other marvel movies, like him looting stores in NYC during the Avengers big fight or him turning down king pin to fight dare devil because he won't meet his demands of making ben and jerrys ice cream create a flavor after him.

Breaking the fourth wall is a tradition at least as old as She-Hulk, and it's been used in Deadpool books since... well, the first ongoing series he ever had.

Man, I just don't know. Deadpool is one of those characters that are extremely popular in the fan community, but I'm just not sure that popularity can translate to the mainstream, especially when so much of his schtick is 4th wall stuff that I don't think will translate well to the screen.

I hope I'm wrong and that Deadpool can earn mainstream interest, but I just don't see it happening unless they change the character so much that the fans will turn around and hate him, instead.

Deadpool is in the X-men side of things now which means that Marvel has no control (just like with the Wolv. movies. I think Fox is the one to blame for screwing it up.

Cable & Deadpool #'s 30, 31, and 32 tied in to the event.

Posehn and Duggan are a pretty good team, really. Last Christmas was a fun, messed-up book. These two on Deadpool could make for a really twisted run.
 
2012-08-03 01:48:15 PM  
The cool thing about Dead pool is that he could have a 5 min on screen rant about how bad the character was handled in the previous movie and it would be totaly in character.
 
2012-08-03 02:20:52 PM  
Will Deadpool awake from surgery to discover the doctor left a sponge inside him?

Uh, some of these "d-list celebrities" are pretty good writers and comedians and big comic book fans, theyre certainly not hacks. Are you saying Kevin Smith shouldnt write comic books? Because im eagerly awaiting the second volume of The Widening Gyre. How about a good friend of Posehns, Patton Oswalt? Because these ideas sound pretty great.

Other mediums that HAVE to reach a wider audience, cant just be written by/for the fans, look at what happened with Watchmen. But the comics themselves? I think thats one place that the writers can totally still geek out without worrying about losing the audience.

In rebuttal, I offer Felicia D. Henderson on Teen Titans. Because writing for Moesha, Sister Sister, and Gossip Girl means you can write for what was one of DC's best selling books.

And let's not forget the rash of JMS associates who wrote his books when he was too busy.

Kevin Smith, Patton Oswalt... guys like that I can understand. But DC had a habit for a while of throwing anyone with a screen credit onto a comic book.


Anyway, as for a Deadpool movie (as was discussed earlier)... it'll never work. I don't think Hollywood is ready to do a superhero comedy like Deadpool should be. Still too much 60s Batman fear lingering to do something like Deadpool right.

Ok, you didnt say that right off and the threads about Brian Posehn, who i definitly would lump in with Kevin Smith and Patton Oswalt and other professional nerds. But no, writing for UPN does not mean you should write for comics.
 
2012-08-03 03:06:57 PM  
I have always like his comedy and acting. However, that damned pic on /b/ got burned into my head when I saw it. If you know the one I'm talking about, my condolences. If you don't, thank your lucky stars.

I enjoyed Mystery Men. It was a lot of fun. It bombed big time, though, which is why I can see your point.

You're forgetting that the shiat-breathing assholes over at Fox have control over the Deadpool character as far as movie rights go, so no such thing will happen until marvel buys all its properties back. So...never.
 
2012-08-03 05:37:31 PM  
I don't really care for Deadpool but I like Posehn. May have to pick it up.

And it's a sad state of affairs when Patton Oswalt's ideas are being turned down by DC.

The other thing, though, is that comics are not really that expensive to produce and their names would guarantee distribution. These guys should just write their own stuff and publish it themselves.
 
2012-08-03 07:08:48 PM  
Any Deadpool movie better had break the cinematic fourth wall Warner Bros. style. And I'm not talking Ferris directly addressing the audience, I mean falling off the edge of the running film and climbing up the sprocket holes into a later scene kind of stuff.
 
2012-08-03 07:20:19 PM  
Gonna go ahead and say it.

The most overblown, overrated, overhyped, idiotic character ever. Deadpool represents everything that is both wrong with comics and comic book fans.

A montage of whom, Deadpool or Brian Posehn?
 
2012-08-03 08:56:09 PM  

mhd: "Marvel NOW!"? Are they doing some kind of reboot, like DC?


No, it's not a reboot. At least, not of the history of Marvel. It's a re-set of their titles, all of them, basically, but it's not a reboot of the universe in any way.

The big changes are that the X-Men and Avengers will basically be working together instead of being what's always been like two separate universes. There will be an Uncanny Avengers book, which is a team half made up of X-Men (Wolvie, Rogue and Havok that we know of) and half of Avengers (Cap, Thor and Scarlet Witch).

Mostly it's an excuse to issue a bunch of new issue #1s, but nobody is getting One More Day'd in this.

Oh, and there's going to be a new X-Men book written by Bendis that's about the original five X-men yanked from the past into present day and finding it to be just as horrifying as "Days of Future Past". That means Jean Grey will be alive again, but this will be a Jean before the Phoenix ever happened. Also a Cyclops before he became a total dickwad.

Gunny Highway: Ill have to check it out. Missed that along the way.


There was also a Great Lakes Avengers tie in with him, as I recall...
