Ryan Reynolds Promises a Scarred, Comic Book Faithful Deadpool Movie

If Ryan Reynolds is to be believed, we won’t be seeing any of that Weapon XI nonsense that showed up at the end of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” in its spin-off “Deadpool” film. Or at least that’s what I got from this brief interview with Reynolds, who while doing promo rounds for his comedy “The Proposal”, got asked questions about the upcoming “Deadpool” movie that was announced almost as soon as the first weekend box office receipts for “Wolverine” came up roses.

Reynolds tells Hitfix:

Well, I’m intimately involved with it. We’re just trying to break a story right now and figure out who the villain is going to be and all that stuff. But, it’s going to be just like the comic books. I’m gonna have a messed up face and you may see some flashbacks of Wade earlier in his life, but primarily what you see is what you get in the comics and that’s the goal. And there is no better place to draw material from then the comics which are incredible.

And just to put a finer point on it, Reynolds said this to IGN about the movie’s ties to the “Wolverine” picture:

“Without saying too much, I can’t imagine that there’s gonna be any tie-in to the Wolverine movie at all.

…So many of the outlets that follow this character are curious what the elements will be, afraid that you won’t be disfigured, that you won’t wear the mask, and I laugh because there’s no way to do this without having the scarring, having the mask, having it all. And it can be done. It’s a no-brainer in that sense. You gotta have the character of Deadpool. You don’t want to just invent something new and call it Deadpool. “

You gotta figure that Reynolds’ involvement in the movie is of utmost importance. At this point, I doubt if anyone, especially the fans, will accept anyone else in the role except Reynolds, which is a good thing because it means he has pull in regards to the movie’s direction. That means if he’s got it in his head to make a comic book faithful Deadpool movie, it’s gonna happen.

    HOORAAY!!!!! Damned skippy the comics are incredible. Nowhere else is a comic that random and yet that on point. It’s hilarious. Reynolds was born to play the character as evidenced in the fleeting 15 miutes he played Wade Wilson to a T in “Wolverine.” Can’t wait to see what they do for this. I hope they go with a leather like suit, by way of Daredevil and X-Men. Hell even Reynolds was taken aback byt theat interpretation. That interview he did with MTV he just looked awkward like he was doing his best not to just say “Yeah Fox F*cked up, but I’m still playing the character.”

    Ryan reynolds is beast, i was like happy as hell when i figured he would play the role of deadpool(no homo), hes funny(watch “blade trinity” or “waiting” if you want good examples), Where i live most people are not willing to accept the fact reynolds will come back from the dead after getting decapitated by wolverine, but reading up on deadpools storyline, this isnt a problem at all, for his power really doesnt involve healing but if you pay closer attention, it involves regeneration :], for example when he had his heart ripped out by ajax. The only complication i see with this movie is the fact deadpool will need a villian to go against, after reynolds recent role as deadpool in the xmen origins movie, its obvious to us fans that dead pool was overpowered and merely got decapitated simply because he was being controlled and wolverine got lucky many times.

    So if ryan reynolds ever reads this, or the director of the movie, the problems
    i would ask you to focus on as a extreme fan of deadpool, the most is

    1:Father/Son Issue- Its completely obsurd how deadpool and the military fat guy were father and son :P and he controls him and continues to call him weapon 0
    “it-is-laaaaame”

    2:The Metal skeletal structure- Deadpool got that alluminum skeleton crap wolverine got :P “what????” i was disappointed with this issue extremely, because
    it creates a deadpool most of us original fans are unfamiliar with and arent so willing to accept :O deadpool shouldnt really have swords coming out from between his knuckles, i mean, its cool and all, but comon :P he was a lot cooler spinning the blades in his hands and slicing bullets in half and stuff :O

    3:Transportation-When deadpool recieved that transportation ability from John Wraith in the xmen origins movie it made him pretty much untouchable and more of a threat that any villian i can usually think of can pose :P, deadpool was alittle too annoying to deal with(even though he was cool) if i were in someone who was fighting him’s shoes. I mean its cool and all but, hes pretty much like a god with all of these abilities, and if that stupid dad wasnt controlling him, he would’ve killed wolverine and sabertooth with ease :P

    4:His suit-Yea,Yea you guys already thought about this i know but :P, just making sure, next time…make him wear his suit as well plz :P

    5:villian-I believe i covered this above but i dont think itll be a problem if you choose a extremely absurdly powerful villian for deadpool, i mean, deadpool after that xmen origins movie seems to be alittle whack, and this is all because he has john wraiths ability, and as well as cyclops :O! CYCLOPS!? LAAAAAME!!!!!

    6:Dont scar up his face: We know you guys want to dedicate the movie solely to deadpool and his extreme details, but if you scar up his face too bad, many fans wont want to consider him a favorite cause hes so ugly :O i believe you should just put a phew scars on reynolds cheeck and eye :O make him look cool, not horrid :)

    7:Just random- i know this is random but, i request uhm, you bring wolverine into the movie for a bit :P just a bit, because it’ll be weird if deadpool just awakes from death then doesnt pursue wolverine for explanation(but wolverine wont know cause he lost his memory :D) just to fill fans up :O

      Umm, you know that they are completely rebooting this movie :) THey are not having that fucked up piece of shit they called Deadpool in XO:Wolverine at all. (Thank god)

      And, I’m sorry, but I do not see you being a real fan, at all :) If you were, you would know that Deadpool needs his scarring, the treatments and experiments he went through would not leave him minimally scarred. They’d completely fuck him up, especially since he is overhealing for his cancer.

      Also, I’m wondering where the hell you got the idea of the father/son relationship. Because, I never heard/saw that. In fact, no one knows who Deadpool’s father/mother are, or if he truly is who he says he is. But if you follow the comics (which you obviously you don’t) he may have stolen his identity from another man, who becomes the villain T-Ray.

      Before you make another post or assumption on here, do the world a favor and read these articles :)

    Laaame! “iAREren” taskmaster f***ing sucks and deadpool would kill him in a instant :O i believe it would make sense for ajax to be in the beginning to experiment on deadpool, after the xmen origins confrontation and the main badguy of the movie should be “Black Swan :O”

    Villians should range from the movie in this order

    Ajax,
    weapon x(regain assassins status)
    Four winds crime family
    Black swan(deadpool loses)
    Joins taskmaster & constrictor
    Fights nijo and black swan final time
    -and the spinoff movie should end with the destruction
    of black swans castle and the loss of and mix-up of their memories-

    The movie should first take place a phew months after the xmen origins confrontation and consist of deadpool in the testing facility :P with ajax.
    Deadpool has some flashbacks :O of his love life and how he regained his
    health from cancer because of his abilities :O deadpool should then key
    to escaping the facility and killing ajax, pursuing deadpool now, the goverment
    refuses to accept deadpool back into programs such as weapon x, which was also
    ended at the end of xmen origins so with nowhere to run deadpool is recruited by the criminal mastermind “WIZARD” and is partnered up with taskmaster and constrictor :P and then ordered to kill the “Four Winds” for an assassination job and while pursuing the four winds “The black swan” kills them and thus deadpool enters the scene and takes credit(as mentioned in storyline) after being beaten senseless by “black swan” deadpool has more flashbacks of his former life and is helped by taskmaster and constrictor & wizard, deadpool heads over to black swans castle for payback for beating the living hell out of him and manipulating his mind (black swan can cause deadpools flashbacks with his mutant ability) and then deadpool confronts nijo(black swans #1 assistant) and nijo is killed by black swan(as said in storyline because black swan wants to fight deadpool one on one) where deadpool defeats him but doesnt kill him, then black swans castle blows up because of the bombs deadpool took with him and causes them to dissappear and lose their memories etc :P didnt feel like typing more detail on the ending
