Considering the marketing for the first movie, both viral and standard, was probably some of the best in recent memory, I'm good with this. Market all you want.

*Cable suddenly appears in a burst of time travel light*

Deadpool: Oh, hey Cable.

*DP turns to camera*

DP: This is Cable. His backstory is way to farked up and convoluted to dedicate any actual time to it. He's a time traveling mutant from the future. Deal with it.

Is it really trolling when it's part of a planned viral marketing scheme?

1)  Let's cast a guy who looks like Cable and has been typecast into playing the same no-range gruff soldier character in everything he does.
2)  Let's cast a guy who's a great actor and we can use SFX and makeup to make him look like Cable.

Ryan Reynolds has been in two failed comic book movies.  And two "OK" ones.  And one quite good one.

Brolin was in one failed comic book movie, one "OK" one, and (played a small-but-significant-and-increasingly-important role) in another series.

Really been enjoying him in Into the Badlands.  I agree I would have liked to see him as cable but oh well.

Brolin's a strong actor so hopefully it turns out well.

1. Someone hasn't seen Tombstone, but that could be the exception that proves the rule.
2. Josh Brolin is a busy actor, sure, but one of his most acclaimed roles was playing someone he physically resembles, so we're back to point 1 again.

I agree with your premise that 2 is the better option. I'm not yet convinced they followed that path.

SCENE: An elegant woman and man, both dressed in formal eveningwear, walking down a seemingly deserted alley flanking Cable, who is laughing and eating popcorn. Suddenly a figure with a gun emerges from the shadows, demanding cash. The man attempts to defuse the situation, but the robber, seeing a pearl necklace on the woman's neck, lunges for it. The strand of pearls break and scatter across the alleyway, mixed with popcorn that a startled Cable drops. At the same moment the robber's gun goes off, killing the woman. The killer then turns his gun on the man, running away from the scene as Cable can only look on in horror.

CSB:

Last year, I flew on two different airlines for an overseas trip....and both of them had Deadpool available on the in-flight-entertainment.

British Airways:  Not censored.  Yay!

Emirates:  HEAVILY censored.  The cursing was left alone, but they blurred out guy's asses, cut out the entire holiday sex montage, and during the closing credits, they blurred out the unicorn's horn when Deadpool stroked it....right before that, the horn wasn't blurred out.  It was pretty amusing.

Those two were OK, not failures like GL or XO:W

RIPD lost 20 mil, a fifth of its budget.  GL failed by a much smaller margin.

X-men origins also made twice its budget, something Blade Trinity did not do.

Although on further examination, it looks like Wildstorm made a miniseries prequel to the movie.

Perhaps we should clarify whether the subject is "commercial" or "critical" failure. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, as an example, was a critical success (81% RT score) but a commercial failure ($47.7 million box office on at least a $60 million budget).

I thought the Scott Pilgrim XBLA game was superior to both the movie and the comic.
