Reynolds Says Deadpool Movie has "Absolutely No Connection" to Wolverine

 The real question is... just how ugly are they going to make this pretty boy?

So Ryan Reynolds is saying that the DEADPOOL solo movie is going to have “absolutely no connection” to X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE and I can’t say I’m too surprised.  Not a bit. Sure, DP being headless and mouth-less might seem like big obstacles to overcome, but there really aren’t any continuity cops in these circles who’ll blow the whistle on somebody fudging some “history” to tell a new story for a movie. Remember how Bishop’s creator (no, not that one) showed up in ALIEN VS. PREDATOR and died gruesomely after he’d already shown up in ALIEN3’s far-flung-future? It’s not like anybody was looking for a yellow footnote to pop up on the bottom of the screen explaining the discrepancy.

Getting back on topic, Reynolds also told Total Film (by way of the Coventry Telegraph) that the script's going to be harder than the comic, straddling the treacherous line dividing PG-13 and R. It’s still going to follow the comic’s tone as closely as possible (I.E. the fourth wall will be broken "many times".) Barring the addition of some deadly F-Bombs to DP’s arsenal, I always figured the comic would already be a "hard R" if it were filmed exactly as illustrated. Gore's a little less intense on paper, you know?  

But the most relevant question is... how will this fit into Reynolds' commitments to GREEN LANTERN? == TEASER == 
  
In Double-R's eyes, there's no conflict whatsoever.  GL’s a straight-up superhero movie, while DP is a superhero deconstruction.  Other commitments and R.I.P.D. aside, I think it’s pretty clear this guy's dead-set on DEADPOOL. Maybe this Canuck just wants to put one of Canada’s biggest heroes up there, but I’ve rarely seen an actor committed to a role this vocally and consistently.  He's a fan and he really wants to do it. It's going to happen eventually. 
 
While we're on the subject of DEADPOOL adaptations, might I humbly direct you to the latest Preview Theater, wherein myself and inferiorego lend our voices to DP's latest gun-blasting, blade-swinging adventure?

So happy to hear its a not connected to that wolverine movie XD Sounds like RR really wants this character to be accurate so we might get a good x-men related origin movie

I'm on the one hand happy to hear some 'news' that Ryan Reynolds still seems to plan on doing the Deadpool movie etc. Also happy about the direction the movie seems to be taking.
 
On the other hand, I'm getting a bit tired of these conversations while there seems to be almost no progress being made in the actual making of the film.

Who would have thought that a Rob Liedfeld Deathstroke rip-off from the 90s would ever be immortalized and canonized into the public consciousness via film? 
 
Deadpool will join the likes of Spawn and Hellboy as 90s creations who've made it to the silver screen as stars of their own feature films.

So are they gonna ignore the movie all together? It wont be hard to not ignore it. All they have to do it say his cut the skin to open his mouth and ripped out the blades. maybe he lost his eye beams when his head was cut off. Done. He's already disfigured so there you go. not ignoring wolverine, while also now doing a new story. That wasn't hard.
 
It's funny you mention how deadpool is Canadian, just made me realize that two of marvels characters that they over expose (wolverine and deadpool) are Canadians. sweet! ha ha

Every time he talks about this movie, he makes it sounds better and better...
I hope it comes through in the end!

#10 Posted by Rheged (619 posts) - - Show Bio

Not a Deadpool fan, but I'd definitely go see Ryan Reynolds play him in a movie.  If his Hannibal King performance is any indication, he'd be perfect!

#11 Edited by Jordanstine (907 posts) - - Show Bio

Well... he's been talking about the Deadpool solo movie years before he even got the Green Lantern role, so it shouldn't be a surprise that he's still passionate about it.

Good. The Wolverine movie was SO inaccurate with Deadpool, and Deadpool needs a mouth.

they only got two things wring in the movie really. the eye beams & blades. 
 he always finds teleporters, he has had his mouth sewn shut a few times, and hes a bad as fighter. 
 
yes it might have not been the best but everyone if flipping out for one reason. it was what it was.

#21 Posted by G Bird (1278 posts) - - Show Bio

 That's awesome, but we already knew this. I want some news on progress of the film! Or even announcements on who else will appear in it.

#22 Posted by MichaelBach (65 posts) - - Show Bio

Better they combine the movies into one. "DeadLantern".

@ReverseNegative:
the fact that they shut him up made for a good moment he shud hav undone it tho shortly after, i mean hes the merc with a mouth after all. hopefuly it actuly gos into production

As long as the film stays close to the original comic book story, I'm happy.
#25 Posted by N7_Normandy (2430 posts) - - Show Bio

I just want news on the actual movie's progression

#26 Posted by Shatterstar (4437 posts) - - Show Bio

For some reason a yellow footnote explaining the disparity strikes me as an awesome idea... Can't say it having nothing to do with Wolverine is a bad thing.
 
I was watching a bit of Origins last week...the more I see it the more I think they blew it. Not only did they bury the possibility of Gambit being a breakout character, but future Wolverine movies will have to rely on the first's kinda crappy origin.

You thought it'd be R? Why do people keep thinking this. It's box office suicide.

#28 Edited by The Impersonator (4304 posts) - - Show Bio

It's good that the Deadpool movie will have no connection to that sick garbage film. I like Deadpool. He's a funny character. Even though I haven't read his solo series, I have read featuring him in Cable and Ms. Marvel series. Right now, I'm reading Wolverine Origins series. Can't wait to see him in humorous action.

I'm glad he's doing it. Out of all the actors and actress' he's the only cares about the actual character. With his love for Deadpool he might be able to really pull together a good Deadpool movie.

It's a good thing that it won't be connected to the Wolverine movie. I think he will be good as Deadpool.

#34 Posted by k4tzm4n (35159 posts) - - Show Bio

Deadpool had a mouth in Wolverine: Origins but it was sewn shut.  And that actually did happen (according to Deadpool, X-Force #2)

I thought Ryan Rennolds was the best part of X-Men Origins, so as far as I'm concerned, he can reboot whatever the fuck he wants. I was secretly hoping for an R, but after the trifecta flops of Watchmen, Kick-Ass and Punisher: War Journal, it's not surprising to see them trying to hit PG-13. Still, they could go Dark Knight-style PG-13 and still have effective violence.

Actually the only way to obtain R rating is if you use "bad words" and you have nongay sex on screen, without a getting out of the bed, also if some one is naked big part of the movie, in a noncomedy style.
Very bizzare, buyt those are the reasons, why even Deadpool have a hard time to be a R rated movie.scene.

I really don't think that's correct. Why do you think movies like Inception don't have blood whenever someone gets shot (unless it's dramatic)? Rambo (the most recent one) had very little swearing, but I guarantee it still would've been R. The things that you listed are definite ways to R, but violence can do it too. That's why PG-13 movies are so bloodless.

AWESOME. Screw anything resembling continuity.  
 
You made a mistake deal with it. why is there a reboot fetish going on with marvel?

Reynold's enthusiasm for the project is infectious, but I'm still harboring some doubts.  I think he can pull it off with the right script and the right director, so I guess time will tell.
