It's TRUE! Deadpool IS Weapon XI

According to the IMDB description for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it appears that the early spoiler review is true about Deadpool. See what it says...

The Biography for the character Weapon XI explains that Deadpool is Weapon XI by the end of the movie, and that the actor Scot Adkins takes over for Reynolds when he turns to Weapon XI. It does say right in the heading that this is not verified by IMDB, so there is some hope this isn't true, but it looks fairly convincing.

Say it aint so.... read below from IMDB

Weapon XI (Character)
from X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

In the comics there is no actual character known as Weapon XI (Weapon X for those who don't know is Wolverine). As for this character, apparently the makers of the movie took creative licenses with Deadpool/Wade Wilson's character where seems that Wade Wilson (played by Ryan Reynolds) is the merc with a mouth but he's presented with no actual scars or the Deadpool replica costume known in the comics. During the movie Wade Wilson will undergo some changes in a procedure by William Stryker turning him to a silent killing machine implanting blades in his forearms and that's when you witness his form being scared and disfigured being the character Weapon XI (played by Scott Adkins). It was revealed in a thread form Scott Adkins' fansite that he will have the last fight against Wolverine in the movie and that's what we caught a glimpse off in the official trailer where we witness Weapon XI doing a flying spinning kick in the face of Wolverine with blades appearing out from his forearms.

"with blades appearing out from his forearms"

What's with the Baraka nod?

I think they are making a big mistake here. The Merc with a mouth who loses his mouth? Are the powers that be trying to screw us over?

As a whole the movie looks to be good, and Reynolds as Deadpool is casting made in heaven, but they shouldn't do a 180 and shoot themselves in the foot in the last act.

that will be the dumbest thing i have ever seen in a comic movie and i have seen them do some pretty dumb crap as we all have but turning DP into something he's not is just retarded i think i have lost all faith in the movies FOX makes based on current licenses. FOX needs to give the X-Men and all characters associated with back to Marvel and let the redeem the franchise.

Logan-x...they haven't changed anything drastic with Wolverine. You're probably upset cuz he's not in his bright yellow spandex...he looks fine in his attire. We're going off about Deadpool because this is a huge change! this is a rediculous change! so lets all pray to God that this is either wrong, or a clonel or something like that...cross them fingers boys...cross 'em

Just thought I'd post this LINK to this figure cuz now it makes sense why Hasbro called this guy Deadpool:

WHYYYYYYYYY!!!!
tjdr59 - 3/11/2009, 11:01 PM
I don't think some crappy movie is worth praying to god. I think Logan-X hit it on the head. A lot of things have been changed. How would they know what should and should not be altered.
Kapoleon - 3/11/2009, 11:04 PM
I was hoping that they never would associate Deadpool with those X-Men from the FOX movies...Marvel should of just made Deadpool his own Movies under Universal...and made it Rated R so it would be true to the comics and to the real fans instead of trying to make a movie for kids... I waited this long for Deadpool to show up but not in this X-Men franchize FOX sucks..... Marvel please reboot -Uncanny X-Men-
YohonKalic - 3/11/2009, 11:11 PM
Deadpool did have a clone in the comics...
SGA - 3/11/2009, 11:12 PM
IMDB is so gay...anyone could write anything on there.

I could go in there and say Wolverine wears a pink frilly tutu while battling Sabertooth on top of the highest mountain on mars and people would think it's real.
sunsetcracker - 3/11/2009, 11:21 PM
Just b/c it's IMDB doesn't make it true. Part of story says that it could be created by fans.
Schooperman87 - 3/11/2009, 11:29 PM
i hope it's not true, i mean ryan reynolds is a deadpool fan, i don't think he would do the movie if they ass raped his character... but then again i could be wrong,deadpool is one of my favorite characters, i hope this is a load of shinanigans.

NO now no no no no no no no non no no no no no no no no no non no no no no no no no NO now no no no no no no no non no no no no no no no no no non no no no no nNO now no no no no no no no non no no no no no no no no no non no no no no no no no o no no NO now no no no no no no no non no no no no no no no no no non no no no no no no no

Why can't Stan Lee just guide these idiots that makes these movies down the right path tell the story the way it's suppose to be told make the characters look the way they are suppose to look what's the deal with all the inaccuracies in these movies Marvel should bring out all of there own movies true to the comic book...
ManOfIron - 3/12/2009, 12:01 AM
can't be true. IMDB is becoming the new Wiki lol
NerdRage - 3/12/2009, 12:10 AM
G-A-Y
vonstallin - 3/12/2009, 12:15 AM
So if this is in fact true....
are the scars on Weapon XI suppose to be like the design outline on Deadpools suit?

(also the guy playing Weapon XI was reyans stunt double...scroll all the way down)

http://watchwolverine.blogspot.com/

WEll maybe they did make a clone out of wade, or this is how he gets disfigured bad??? i dont know. Well I let movies live in their own universe, cartoons and comics also.... all different universes.

So could they be trying to resemble the outline of deadpools suit?

I just can not see them destroying such a popular character like Deadpool his first time out.
SirExcalibur - 3/12/2009, 1:30 AM
I don't think this is true...for sure....I remember reading that exact article somewhere else, I just don't remember where...
FalconX2 - 3/12/2009, 1:50 AM
Hahaha all thumbs down on this article.

This is just full of fail.

"Why can't Stan Lee just guide these idiots"

Haha because Stan Lee is the only other person in the comic business that is as crazy as Alan Moore.

Stan Lee is rolling in his grave... I know he's not dead, but he's already dug a grave and has a death certificate that says "Cause of death: 20th Century Fox"

Then just in, I found this on Wikipedia, It says I'm god...... Hey if its on the internet it must be true.... right?
FalconX2 - 3/12/2009, 3:37 AM
"Then just in, I found this on Wikipedia, It says I'm god...... Hey if its on the internet it must be true.... right?"

Yes... Now fix this or Satan has a new errand boy!
YohonKalic - 3/12/2009, 4:07 AM
What are you talking about, I did fix it. I'm the one that made it this way, I was talking to Jesus and he was like damn yo it would be crazy tight if Deadpool not only was a bad ass assassin but like if he had one super big claw in each arm and shot crazy ass eye beam. So being god and all, I was like sure Jesus no prob, and shazam it was done...



Speaking of Shazam, how do you make a topic, I would love to talk about the Captain Marvel movie, and The Rock as Black Adam

As matey said up above this must be true if hasbro the offcial toy manufacturer for the movie are making offcial figures of Deadpool as Weapon XI

The guy who wrote the original 'review' (if you can call it that) probalby wrote to try and convince all of us he's not lying,

Mind you i read an interview with Hugh Jackman saying something reall intere4sting or cool happens do deadpool and one with Liev Schreiber saying they,ve been told to keep quiet about deadpool. Who knows what to think any more.
Kockie - 3/12/2009, 4:43 AM
NOOOOOO!!!!

There goes the neighbourhood....

And i only wanted to see the movie because deadpool was in it, not because Wolverine :P
Now they destroying the original deadpoolcharacter,
argh can't believe it.
TinyTim - 3/12/2009, 5:01 AM
:(
I was so stoked to see the movie… 90% of that just to see DP in action… I am SO disappointed…
theFACE - 3/12/2009, 5:09 AM
it's not true, trust me. why would they have scott adkins play weapon XI if it's deadpool's character. i know someone mentioned that he was reynolds stunt double but why would he step in and do all of the scenes for weapon XI. Reynolds does a fair amount of his own stunts and would still be needed for the close up shots which if you look at the latest trailer looks nothing like reynolds, for one thing weapon XI is too small.

Listen guys it's purely speculation, Jackman loves wolverine and im sure he loves the things that make up his world, including Deadpool, so i dont see him making this kind of mistake. Even if the toys are credible, i have a theory.

In all the trailers and Tv spots we've seen of this movie, have we seen anyone call reynolds deadpool, NO, granted no ones called him wade either. But, what if they dont call him deadpool, and what if the person who cuts of the head of weapon XI is wade (reported in the "Review" as wolverine who cuts his head off) and through this decides to call himself deadpool (he comes out with some witty line like "what, i liked the name" as he cuts his head off and looks at wolverine). I'm just saying that until i see it in the movie or i hear it from jackman or reynolds himself, i'm not buying this rumor. As its already been stated, on imdb it's says that its unverified, which means it's bollocks.
superman7 - 3/12/2009, 7:16 AM
If this is confirmed 100% I really don't know if I am going to see this! There's not a chance in hell they should do that to DEADPOOL! HORSE $H!T!!!
deadpool87 - 3/12/2009, 7:26 AM
NOOOOOOOO!!!!! Ok they have to somehow reset Wade's powers at the end, or clone him or something
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 3/12/2009, 7:33 AM
As time goes on this story is looking more and more likely and at the same time my world is slowly falling through my arse.

I hope to god this is not true! If it is then they best shoot some extra scenes where they find Deadpool hog-tied in a cell and Weapon XI was a clone or something. It'll still be crap but as it is they have taken what should be one of the best movies ever with two of marvels best heroes and totally ass raped it!
loganoneil - 3/12/2009, 7:37 AM
IF (and I'm saying 'IF') this is true, Fox (and as far as I'm concered Marvel too for allowing the BS to happen) has shot itself in the foot, head, heart and the 'short and curlies'!!! IF this does turn out to be true, I'm swearing off ANY comic book movies made by Fox (anayone care to join me in the crusade?)!
JamesH - 3/12/2009, 7:57 AM
Ok, i dont think that this is true but the fact that the HASBRO website (not a random toysite but HASBRO which releases all the Marvel toys) shows Adkins character as Deadpool is troubling me.

Plus the fact that there are no screencaps or vids showing REynolds and Adkins together makes things worse. As a huge Wolvie fan, i really hate to say this but if this news is true, its f'd up!

But being a Wolvie fan, im glad its Deadpool they f'd up and not Wolvie. The only reason i think they wont f' things up with Deadpool is that they're killing a potential spinoff that can bring in cash
loganoneil - 3/12/2009, 8:04 AM
JamesH - That's what they said about Venom, and look what happened to him! The studios apparently believe that the movies NEED a villain to KILL in order to show the 'superiority' of the hero! Screw the cannonization or the 'potential', it looks like they're putting all their eggs in one basket instead of thinking outside the box!
LaffaTaffa - 3/12/2009, 8:16 AM
I just wanna point out to all of u that 20th century fox is also the actual FOX corperation , the parent company. Therefore I wanna point out that it's the Republican news network. Hopefully this movie doesn't turn out to be shit but if it should be complete shit then there should be a protestt then against 20th century fox from ever making movies again.

Just a lil side note, some of u guys should stop whinning so much and just wait for the movie to see it and then bitch up a storm if u don't like it after seein it.

Another side note in case u read my comment, I am a Democrat and disagree with FOX news and everything said by FOX
JeremyBentham - 3/12/2009, 8:16 AM
i severely doubt this is true, it can't be...why would something so dumb really be put into play, the one fatal flaw that turned this movie--seemingly the most awesome ever--into sheer crap?!?!

and then i saw Mason's toy link, and I now fear that it is true. Damn it, it was so close, I really thought this movie wouldn't get screwed up. Why, why?

They should make another Hitler video of him blowing up over this
LeonardShelby - 3/12/2009, 8:18 AM
If this was true, why wouldn't they just use Ryan Reynolds? It makes no sense to get another actor in.

I am caling bullshit untill a credible source comes out.
