My 2 Cents on the upcoming Deadpool Movie.

My 2 Cents on the upcoming Deadpool Movie.

Since I got into the Deadpool Comics , I always had 2 special things in mind, when it comes to a Deadpool CBM.

I first heard of Deadpool through the Wolverine movie. With all the buzz about him and his, lets say, slightly changed look, I wanted to know, what a character he might be, because everyone seemed to care a lot about him. I actually never heard about him before, maybe because in germany Comics are not that popular, because the german Companies can't import and translate all stories because of our stupid censorshipment.
So, I get them from a Comicbook Store, which directly imports them from the US. I also love to read comics in english, because through translation, you do not get all the jokes right.

So, starting with the part where Deadpool and Bullseye had theire little game going on, 2 things hit me with an instant Chimichanga:

1. His mimic! Gotta love his facial/mask expressions.
2. The fact that he argues a lot with his brain and talking with textboxes.

And for me, these are 2 very important things, that need to be worked out as close as possible, to make a grounded Deadpool movie.

For the first part, make his Mask part CGI.
So you don't have theses static eyes like in the Spiderman movie. With the technology of the incredible Hulk movie, or now with that Avatar face cameras, it should be easy, to let the mask take forms of (some kind of) human expression. His eyes or the white dots, you decide how to call it, are essential to get behind all of his feelings and moods.

For the second part,
let there be a Narrator (Someone like an old storyteller), Deadpools thoughts spoken by Reynolds with an slightly echo, and Deadpool voice as himself.

For example:

Narrator: With a world full of heroes and villains, it is hard to fit in..
Thoughts: Hey, you mean were not a hero?
Narrator: Would you please let me finish my introduction? Thank you. [...] especially for those who seem to have not found their path..
Thoughts: The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides with Tacos and hot chicks.
Narrator: Ok, you wanna do it the hard way? Fine! Your movie, your choice. Don't expect any hints and helps from now on.
Thoughts: Ohh, little ol Storyteller, are you cryin right now?
Narrator: Would the Star of this flic might do or say something?
Deadpool: Shuddap, wouldya!! I try to get this Blu Ray thing goin on. Got me the first season of Golden Girls and wouldloveto have some one on one with my lovely Bea.


So, you get what I mean. The narrator could become someone, who does not tell the story from an outside p.o.v., like in all other movie, but be somekind of watcher, who really does not know, what happens next, because Deadpool follows no logical terms of thinkin. He can just comment that, what is happening on the Screen like:

N.: Where are we?
T.: Seems like an old Warehouse..Is this the harbour area?
N.: So, you wanna hire on a boat?
D.: No, I have no idea why we are here, ask the director, but my common sense is tingling.
N. and T.: D'oh!

So, what do you guys think? If you have any question, just ask!

Best regards!

You might be on to something here with him arguing with a narrator...as long as its not overdone.
Darantino - 1/30/2010, 2:41 PM
Thx for your comment. Yeah, this is a difficult move to make. To much arguing will take the pace out of the movie and probably will be annoying the audience.

yeah i think it has to be a big part of the movie if they want to keep it true to the comic books. the book is narrarated along with deadpools split personalities all arguing with each other. its something that makes deadpool different than any other comics. the "internal conflict" within the characters own fractured fragile psyche

Darantino @ Great stuff, and the MASK is a must, thumbs up from me dude!

Lee @ Thx, buddy.

I agree with everything but him talking to himself this is only because i love classic DP Funny Dialog though
Cagefighter2099 - 1/31/2010, 11:59 AM
This is great, I was wondering how they might do the whole deadpool/yellow thought bubble conversations and this would be perfect
wadepool - 1/31/2010, 12:58 PM
I just thought of something they could do like half way through the movie have like:

Deadpool:Hey! wait a minute I just noticed something.
Narrator:What would that be?
Deadpool:Where are my little yellow textboxes!?
Narrator:This is a movie there is no need for textboxes.
Deadpool:But I love my little textboxes
Narrator:You can't have them

Etc..

Just thought that would be pretty cool

Wadepool @

That would be hilarious.
wadepool - 1/31/2010, 1:58 PM

imho - recast ryan reynolds. he's perfect for the role don't get me wrong. but with him doing green lantern - if deadpool takes off- he'll be tied to GL first so you'll have to do quite a balancing act if both films turn into franchises. keep him on as a producer if he wants to be, hell, let him make his directorial debut with deadpool, i just don't think it should be him. people might say - what? RR in another comic movie? no thanks... (or it could be the opposite, who knows?)

i would cast stiffler himself - Mr. Sean William Scott. he needs it more than reynolds does. and imo he would do better.

@OdinsBeard

I dont agree that Mr.Scott could do a better job as deadpool than Ryan reynolds he is funny don't get me wrong I just think he isn't right for the role of deadpool. And I also don't think Ryan juggiling both GL and Deadpool will hinder his ability to do either movie I think he will do great and with the zombieland writers set to pen I think we are looking at a great movie I'm not worried at all ryan is a huge deadpool fan and so are the writers so we have nothing to worry about.
MOVIEMAN718 - 2/10/2010, 12:17 PM
great idea's agree totally//
1)I hope it's a Trilogy
2)show how he got the name Deadpool
3)I think those Zombie land writer's are a Perfect Fit

This might work

NICE

Justin Long should be Bob if he makes an appearance
ffgardner - 5/3/2010, 4:57 PM
Reynolds has been working on getting this made since 2003, so there is no way he'll give up the role. I think they should throw in an "Origins" reference too even if it doesn't follow the movie. Maybe like during a sign of weakness, his thoughts could say, "you just haven't been the same since that fight with Wolverine and Sabertooth" and he could answer, "Can we call him Sabertooth yet?"
