The Deadpool Movie Script is Funny, Smart, Ultra Violent, and Will Give you Geek-Gasms

That’s all according to the boys over at CinemaBlend, who got their hands on the latest draft of the movie by writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (of “Zombieland” fame). So what’s the verdict? “Deadpool” is so good, it has the potential to be the R-rated superhero movie version of “The Dark Knight”. That’s your friggin verdict right there, pal.

The review summarizes it up thusly:

As good a script as Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have written, it’ll still be up to Ryan Reynolds to keep this thing good. If Reynolds, for whatever reason, decides to walk away from the movie (you know, reasons like the gazillion other movies and franchises he’s probably being offered right now), then I can’t see a “Deadpool” movie getting made, much less staying faithful to this script and the character we’ve come to know and love from the comics.

My favorite part about the script? Its approach to Deadpool’s ridiculously bullshit appearance in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, which goes something like this:


How much do I want to see that in a movie? Very much, folks. Oh so very much.
