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:

You can read the full review over at Cinemablend.

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:

REMOVED

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

NOTE: CinemaBlend has since removed their review after a “request” by Fox, and thus, we have removed the review excerpts.

    Read it and awesome!!! I so want to see this. This would be exactly what I want to see as a DP movie.

      Is the script available to read online? It sounds really good. I hope that the Green Lantern franchise doesn’t stop Reynolds from doing this movie. I was wondering how they were going to handle the whole X-Men Origins:Wolverine debacle.

        The script isn’t but the review is in depth. Much like the ones I read for Justin Marks’ Voltron and Masters of the Universe scripts which were also good.

  • ULIK

    LOL!!!!!!!!!! Those Marvel Vs DC clips are always funny. THE SCRIPT is good though! Ryan Reynolds needs to make his demands solid with Fox or not do this movie,it should be in writing. If FOX interferes then he should be able to take legal action.

    Just be glad they are doing it. Like the Thor movie, it might not be dead on but I’m happy they are doing it !

    If it is rated “r” it better be because of the action, and not because of random
    swear words thrown in to give it that rating
    (in case of the new predator movie the cursing ruined it for me)
    (The Dark Knight was rated pg-13 (had very few curse words and never dropped the f-bomb) and it was still great)
