Following the reports of Twentieth Century Fox tapping first-time director Tim Miller to helm their long-productive Deadpool cinematic adaption, the official title for the spin-off may have been overlooked. While the initial report mentioned it, in a recent preview of Production Weekly, the name re-listed:

X-Men Origins: Deadpool



Evidently used to bring aware that it's story from the "X-Men" saga, as well show it's following X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which featured Ryan Reynolds' big-screen debut of the character, it very well could be only tentative, being that an official release date has yet-to-be announced. Therefore, don't be shocked if another title appears soon. Though, Deadpool sits fine with me.

Anyhow, while it's been reiterated that this spin-off wouldn't include initial references to Wolverine origins or the X-Men at all, and if so, only by mocking & poking fun at, what do you think of X-Men Origins: Deadpool for the title?

Figured they would go with this, It is so people still associate the character with the X-Men universe. Nice find @Freshman

Now that's just lame.
If it's going to be a complete reboot and separate from the X-Men film universe (as it's been said), then why give it a title that will make people believe just the opposite?

For a title this is actually the best way to go.
the1egend1ives - 4/9/2011, 9:43 AM
This is dumb. Nobody even KNOWS the name the Deadpool, so people are going to see the X-Men association and be like "Who the [frick] is that?" Also, wasn't the goal of a Deadpool movie to DISASSOCIATE the character from the Wolverine abomination?
MercMatt - 4/9/2011, 9:44 AM
Bah!!! Plain "Deadpool" works for me. This isn't an X-Men origin. =|
PaulRom - 4/9/2011, 10:03 AM
This is off topic, but is anyone else having trouble posting pictures from their galleries? It's not working for me today for some reason. Any help would rock.

@Shocker, I agree they should go with Deadpool: Merc With a Mouth that title describes the character perfectly and always has
Ryguy88 - 4/9/2011, 10:07 AM
I doubt it will be called X-Men Origins: Deadpool. As for the movie itself, I'm just happy things are moving forward, I will worry about the quality when some info is released.
CaptainAmerica - 4/9/2011, 10:08 AM
Sup Darkmatter, I see you're still [female dog]ing about everything. When your balls drop everything will change, I promise.
Boyle360 - 4/9/2011, 10:08 AM
What the hell? No! It's supposed to be a reboot of the character from Wolverine! And that doesn't even make sense! It's a different version and origin of a character from an origin?! AGAGGAHAGAHAGAHGHFGHFGAHAGAGAGAAAAAAAAGGGHH!!!!
Ryguy88 - 4/9/2011, 10:10 AM
I agree with indoraptor, Deadpool's name isn't going to sell this movie, it needs to be sold as if it is something totally separate from the X-men film universe as if it is an independent CBM. A few references would just be throw ins.

Boyle, it doesn't make sense and it probably wont happen, chill out.
gambgel - 4/9/2011, 10:15 AM
Again??

"X-men Origins" shouldnt be used on any more titles.

Its not a comic series, its the movie industry, and using the same tittle for these spin-offs makes them seem less interesting/serious.

Where is GRIF when you need him?!
wade1210 - 4/9/2011, 10:17 AM
the problem is that it is an R rated script and i dont think the company will want to ascociate the xmen title with such a graphic and foul mouthed movie
Jimdlux - 4/9/2011, 10:18 AM
@Grif Your slipping! That wasn't really negative at all...
JatevinM - 4/9/2011, 10:19 AM
I would love for it to be called "Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth" or just simply "Deadpool"
genesis609 - 4/9/2011, 10:20 AM
should be called DEADPOOL: THE MERC WITH A MOUTH
supyrman - 4/9/2011, 10:21 AM
Your headline could use some editing. It took me a minute to figure out what you meant.
Exiles - 4/9/2011, 10:21 AM
wait why are people so surprised by this exactly
YeaOkYea - 4/9/2011, 10:25 AM
Well if it's gonna spoof & break the 4th wall about the Wolverine Origins film then the 'X-Men Origins: Deadpool' title is a tongue & cheek to poke fun of Wolverine & take his shine but 'Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth' has a sweet ring to it. 
Spidey91 - 4/9/2011, 10:26 AM
"Deadpool: this one has a mouth!" :P
of course they could go with that name,every movie with "X-Men" in the title is a hit (so far).
spiderneil - 4/9/2011, 10:26 AM
if this is linked in any way shape or form to the wolverine: origins deadpool then I'm not going to bother watching this movie.
BATMAN1X - 4/9/2011, 10:33 AM
Wow Ryan Reynolds still DeadPool thats A surprize.
Bandrews1 - 4/9/2011, 10:35 AM
I wish they could have just went with Deadpool, but as long as the movie gets made I guess thats all that matters.

I really hate why Fox cant just call the movies by their main character:

- Wolverine
- Deadpool

They are a really insecure studio so they need to add the X-men origins in the tittle, because they think this way the audience will be bigger.

Many big movies in the boxoffice didnt have a previous source like a comic or book to be worldwide hits, they just were good movies with great promotion.

But again, Fox is so insecure, that they just cant make great movies and great promotion so they add Xmen Origins, so now the movies will be big hits.... ¬¬
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 4/9/2011, 10:46 AM
I did not see that coming
yankeemanf - 4/9/2011, 10:48 AM
i can see this just being called "Deadpool" or "Deadpool: merc with a mouth"
RockNRollCC - 4/9/2011, 11:02 AM
THis is the starting point of the domino effect:

-Title is named X-MEN ORIGINS: Deadpool
-Fox tries to market this as an X-Men movie
-Script is cut and made into PG-13, making it hokey.
-Movie is bashed by fans

[frick] you Fox
JohnTom88 - 4/9/2011, 11:02 AM
On the last interview they said they were going for a total reboot, ignoring what was happening in XO: Wolverine? Make up your mind Fox and Ryan Reynolds should GTFO of this FAIL project.
THESPIDERMAN96 - 4/9/2011, 11:05 AM
GO TO HELL FOX
Illuminatus - 4/9/2011, 11:07 AM
Let Ryan Reynolds be a part of this now fail project. He could've done something about it earlier on, when Fox was practically relying on him to get the movie made. Sorry my fellow Deadpool fans, but this is the beginning of the end. And CaptainAmerica, if you even think about replying to me, stop, go look at pictures of Barakapool, and THEN come and tell me that I'm wrong for assuming failure from Fox.
PirateOpossum - 4/9/2011, 11:09 AM
^^ I agree with RockNRollCC

They better not call it X-Men Origins: Deadpool. this has to be a fraking joke. We don't need an "origins movie" for Deadpool. we had that in the (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) movie when they made him like Baraka from Mortal Kombat. We need the tie ins to the singer-universe to END.

X-Men Origins: Baraka
PirateOpossum - 4/9/2011, 11:10 AM
FOX makes me want to quit watching movies.
AlexDeLarge87 - 4/9/2011, 11:13 AM
[frick] X-Origins!

Deadpool: The Merc With A Mouth all the way!
PirateOpossum - 4/9/2011, 11:22 AM
@SotoJuiceMan ... Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Iron Man II, The Incredible Hulk, coming soon: Green Lantern, Thor, Captain America: TFA, Avengers ... etc ... if FOX would do what these movies did and are doing then every one will be happy... but the X-Men movies change too much in story and characters to even be called X-Men to the comic fans and is too out there for the people who are not in to sci-fi fantasy. http://geekcinemareviews.wordpress.com/
RockNRollCC - 4/9/2011, 11:24 AM
@Soto Then why doesn't Marvel Studios call their movies:

Iron Man: Thor
Iron Man: The Incredible Hulk
Iron Man: Captain America, The First Avenger
etc
???

No. They put "From the studio that brought you Iron Man," because Iron Man was their big success, and they wanted to rank in on that. Fox can do the same if they want it tied to X-Men, by just saying "From the studio that brought you X-Men..."

Plus, Deadpool is:
-Not an X-Man
-not even tied to the other X-Men movies. It's a complete reboot of the character.


idk im rambling
JWStubner - 4/9/2011, 11:26 AM
I'd rather it be just Deadpool but I understand why they would include the X-Men Origins moniker so movie goers associate it with the X-Men franchise so that more people will go especially if it's going to have an R rating.
yankeemanf - 4/9/2011, 11:28 AM
@rocknrollcc deadpool has been an x-man before and as far as i kno it has nothing to do with any of the other x-men movies so far
D117 - 4/9/2011, 11:28 AM
Deadpool would be just fine, no need to throw X-men Origins up in the title. Just call it Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth, simple.
