'Deadpool' Movie Update

Deadpool's director speaks a bit about the film's status.

The status of the Deadpool movie has been all over the place for quite some time now and the slow progression hasn't exactly been an optimistic sign for fans of the Merc with a Mouth. However, a script was leaked some time ago and it was quite well received. Now there's another reason to hold onto hope because director Tim Miller took to Kickstarter and answered one question about Wade Wilson's cinematic status.

"DEADPOOL: We've turned in an amazing script and done some early tests and visual development that--I'm confident--would get the fans stoked. And Ryan still loves the project. So it's really up to Fox as to whether or not the film happens--all I can do is hope (and beg periodically) that it be allowed to move ahead."

Those are certainly words of inspiration and it's nice to know Ryan Reynolds is still definitely on-board. With Mark Millar joining Fox's Marvel movieverse, it could be possible he'll help this project pick up speed and potentially open the doors to more X-Men related characters.

Us Deadpool fans will just have to wait around to see how things turn out. Hopefully we'll one day get a glimpse of that test footage and hear more updates in the near future. In the meantime, what would you really want to see in a Deadpool movie?

...Sounds like more of the same they've been telling us...

I hope this movie gets made.

After Millar was announced to be Fox's Whedon, this was the movie I've most been looking forward to. I'm confident that production will start by the time the video game is out.

Nothing majorly new but I am glad it is still in development. Hopefully it is not connected to the Wolverine Origins movie!

Posted by JonSmith

Wait, wait wait. Why does Fox have the rights to Deadpool? He's not an X-Man-

See? Even Beast admits it.

Haven't heard about this movie in a while

Finally, Fox better not fail me now!

Ryan Reynolds still involved in this project? NO!!!

Ugh, fox. Seriously give all the rights characters (X-Men, Wolverine, Deadpool, Fantastic Four, etc.) to Marvel Studios/Disney! Fox needs to let them go.

I don't really like Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. But I'd still like to see a Deadpool movie.

I saw that Fox was doing it and just died a little inside. Mark another superhero movie down as crap. I only say so because all of their superhero movies were crap.

Posted by Xanni15

Doesn't really sound like the film is any closer to being made. Obviously they're going to say the script is amazing, but all the begging and pleading isn't a good sign.

@JonSmith:

Because of Wolverine Origins. Even though that thing is hardly Deadpool.

Posted by JonSmith

@spinningwebs:

You will not speak of that abomination as Deadpool again.

Posted by Mr. Kamikaze

I hope Fox goes bankrupt and all of their Marvel licenses revert to Disney.... -.-

Maybe not bankrupt, that's extreme, they've made some fantastic movies. Just not one of those fantastic movies were superhero movies.

Posted by kagato

I really really want this to be happening, make me a damn Deadpool movie and do it fast! I approve of Ryan Reynolds too ^_^

Posted by neiliusprime

Deadpool's movie will never be made...

Ryan Reynolds is nice to look at but I do not see him as Deadpool. It doesn't help that he's a so-so actor.

Posted by VictorVonDoom_1

Ryan Reynolds makes a great Deadpool, in my opinion. I mean, in Origins he was as annoying to the team as in the comics. I don't know man, I hope this movie gets made. I've been wanting to see this happen.

@JonSmith: he's not an X-Man (well that's debatable recently) but he falls under the license due to his connections to wolverine, weapon x, cable, and x-force, which all fall under the X-Men license. It sort of like how quicksilver and scarlet witch are under the x-men license because of magneto and their brief stint on the brotherhood even though they've spent more time with and are more well know as Avengers.

Posted by mewmdude77

Ryan Reynolds was an awesome Wade Wilson. He had the humor, the skills, the annoyingness to his team. It was awesome. Then they turned him into an abomination that didn't resemble Deadpool in any way.

Posted by Chibi-Iroh

@GR2Blackout: Ryan Reynolds was spot on as Wade Wilson

Posted by Chibi-Iroh

@Smurfboy: Why would they give the rights back if they are still making money off of them?

Posted by thatcoolguysteven

I hope it ends up something like this short movie

I'm not a Marvel fan...but I want to see this movie.....DO THE RIGHT THING FOX!!!!! FOR ONCE DO THE RIGHT THING!!

Posted by BoyWander

I can only hope for Bob.

Posted by The_Tree

I hope this movie happens, and if it does, I hope they don't change the previous script too much.

Posted by FatFriar_16

Wow... No one answered the question of what they would like to see in the movie... So many critics...

Anyway, I hope that he breaks the 3/4th wall (whichever it is) either twice in the movie itself or just one time after the credits. He better have those voices!!! He's incomplete without them... And, the story-line should be pretty whack, but not too crazy that it's stupid. I kind of hope that it's not another origins story, but that it just jumps right in to the Mercenary bit with maybe a couple flash backs. The comic DP Origins wasn't bad though, if they want to go off of that.

Posted by FatFriar_16

@BoyWander: Hail Hydra!!!

Posted by The Lobster

If the Deadpool movie matches the tone of Kick-Ass since Millar is now Fox's go-to-guy, then this movie will be awesome. 
 
Please let it happen, PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAASEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Hopefully if the video game is a hit, FOX will see just how profitable Deadpool can be and get this movie going.

Posted by FatFriar_16

@thatcoolguysteven: Great video!

Posted by comicfan123

@zanevittorio: I don't know...I enjoyed X-Men: First Class myself (although that's the only Fox-made X-Men film I like). To each his own, I guess.

Posted by Bluefox170

"Eat blazing doorknobs of death banana face!"

This movie better crash and burn and take the game down with it.

Posted by Loki2u

I'm not much of a Deadpool fan....I find the humour quite juvenile and not really all that funny to be honest.....BUT I always enjoy seeing comic books coming to life on the big screen so I will definately go and watch it.

When was Ryan Reynolds Deadpool?

Posted by cesarloyola

what i wanna see??? Domino, the white box, the yellow box, Cable, hydra Bob, Wolverine, Daken, lady deadpool and Daniel Way helpin' to make the script

Posted by notarandomguy

Well that's good news.... kinda :/

DEADPOOL CONSTANTLY BABBLING LIKE HE DOES WHEN HE FIGHTS !!!! that's sorta what makes him cool...

or DP Vs Taskmaster

Posted by Sifighter

Yes I can't wait, as long as they do his charcter right and not copy him from X-men wolverine Origins

Posted by Cancer the Conqueror

Given the right people, with the right ideas and intentions, and a Deadpool movie could be a real success. If not done right, Deadpool's famous on-liners and endless dialogue could trip and fall into Schwarzenegger Mr. Freeze cheesiness. I wouldn't disqualify Reynolds since he was of the frowned-upon depiction. Didn't he have the idea to have the teaser trailer of the eventual movie to be narrated by Deadpool himself? Definitely sounds like what Deadpool would do.

Posted by Saturnus

Ryan would make a great Deadpool, and he has the right interests of the character at heart. He openly admits to hating the one from Origins, and says he wouldn't do a Deadpool movie unless it's rated R. On top of that he's cut as hell and has great wit. And if you question his acting chops watch the movie 'Buried' which some said deserved an award.

Posted by Cavemold

good to hear lets see it fox.

Posted by Bitchgurl

"it's nice to know Ryan Reynolds is still definitely on-board"

RR was terrible as Deadpool, just like he was as Hannibal King. And Green Lantern.

Next.
