See What Deadpool Could Have Looked Like In X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

Logan's first solo flick was not exactly popular with most fans, but one element that had to piss EVERYONE off was the treatment of The Merc With A Mouth. Now we have this vid from Amalgamated Studios featuring 82 variations on the character, some of which are a bit closer to his comic look..

Most agree that Ryan Reynolds made for a fine Wade Wilson, but Deadpool (or "Weapon X1") was a very different story. Characters being altered for adaptation purposes is to be expected, but the mute, sword-armed, teleporting...thing we ended up with was just a joke. Well, things might have been different as the following vid from Amalgamated Studios - one of the visual effect companies behind X-Men Origins: Wolverine - shows..

"Here, in quick succession, are 82 variations on Deadpool. It was our job to satisfy the many creative voices on the show, from director Gavin Hood to the Producers and Studio, so we generated a huge selection of artwork from complete direction changes to subtle variations like tweaks to eye color. This is why having a design phase at the start of preproduction is so valuable. We'll never satisfy everyone with a design, but an exploratory like this lets us consider the options."

None of the alternate designs are MUCH closer to his comic look, but some are slightly better than what we ended up with at least. Which do you guys think would have worked best?

ManofSteel23 - 12/12/2012, 12:37 PM
They had that shit design in mind even through the concept art,they didnt even play with the idea of giving him is costume! bloody hell,how can you use dead pool and not think that the fans want to see [frick]ING deadpool with a costume!
JeffG - 12/12/2012, 12:44 PM
I don't see anything. Blank space.
SuperDude001 - 12/12/2012, 12:46 PM
So should be greatful cause it could've been a hell of a lot worse.
Tbh they should've either gone full jokey Deadpool costume or just bandaged his head, the blade arms, and red trousers.
jimpinto24 - 12/12/2012, 12:49 PM
It does look terrible!
Rhys - 12/12/2012, 12:50 PM
...what comics were they reading?


Dear Everyone involved in X-Men Origins,

SageMode - 12/12/2012, 12:55 PM
Why is "Bane" in the concept art?..................
kevberg - 12/12/2012, 12:59 PM
whats wrong with guys head?
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 12/12/2012, 1:06 PM
All I see is FAIL!!!!! Looked like a demented spider-man half way through.
laughterman26 - 12/12/2012, 1:06 PM
the one at the 36 mark would have been better then the one in the movie, cause it looks like ultimate deadpool
IDKwhatToChoose - 12/12/2012, 1:06 PM
lol glad I read the comments before watching the video

This just sucks...


This low budget MARVEL Fan Film did a better job of translating the character to live action:

Even Better:

Every last versions a disappointment...

its like the resident evil movies....when they make them, do they seriously think theyre that good? they obviously make them only for themselves and not the fans. some times you just gotta pull the plug on the life support machine
Gigacrusher45 - 12/12/2012, 1:17 PM
They should of gone with one of those helmet variations but not the ones we saw here. Why they even thought of making him look like an alien though is beyond me.
m0th3r - 12/12/2012, 1:22 PM
What do you expect from people that work for those Tools at Fox...cant wait to continue to watch the fail in DOFP
Mysterion - 12/12/2012, 1:23 PM
And this is why FOX shouldnt hold movie rights to any of the marvel characters.
JohnnyKrypton - 12/12/2012, 1:25 PM
Wow. 80 versions of fail.
Luigi - 12/12/2012, 1:27 PM
You'd think in 80 versions, one would actually look anything like Deadpool rather than Bane.
SpideyNyC181 - 12/12/2012, 1:27 PM
FOX has absolutely no respect for the X universe,they took the greatest roster in comics and thru up all over it. Some of the movies are good(x-1,x-2,first class)but compared to what marvel or even sony coulda done they should have to reliquish the rights after last stand.
TheBeard - 12/12/2012, 1:28 PM
Did they not realize that the character deadpool had already been created? Apparently not
TheRedSkull - 12/12/2012, 1:30 PM
Some of them are god awful, and I'm glad they didn't choose them, but some would've been a vast improvement to what they actually went with for the movie.

Can we please just have the Deadpool Movie we deserve now?
Hero020200 - 12/12/2012, 1:31 PM
And we thought the final design was bad...
TheAmazingShmoo - 12/12/2012, 1:32 PM
the only good part about that was the advertisement that came before it. I saw somewhere online that someone had taken a pic of Snake-eyes from the G.I. Joe movie and changed the coloring to look just like Deadpool, I thought that was great! They should do that for the Deadpool movie. IMO
TheRedSkull - 12/12/2012, 1:37 PM
I'm assuming the game is to hype the character up to general audiences anyway, so I have a strong feeling the movie isn't too far off
Durf - 12/12/2012, 1:45 PM
Wow, every single one was [frick]ing terrible
SpideyQuad - 12/12/2012, 1:51 PM
One thing I can't understand is how he could bend his arms before those swords came out? Just a minor point.
BigDamnHero - 12/12/2012, 1:52 PM
Never has a comic book character been messed up so badly. Please make a real Deadpool movie. And use the Rhett Reese/Paul Wernick script. That was badass.
natedetroit - 12/12/2012, 2:03 PM
as if the movie wasn't enough insult... they thought they should poop on the character a little more... jeez.

Those were all shit.
laughterman26 - 12/12/2012, 2:18 PM
@ american-phycho hes supposed to look like a zombie. i have always taken what gunsith ^^^^ has said into mind. but one of the things he said was "if that were real and i saw that from a mile away i would shit myself". we were talking about scorpion from the amazing spider man game. so in the comics when people look a deadpool and throw up. he better be [frick]'ing ugly.

All I see is a video of Baracka. Where's Deadpool?
Silentman - 12/12/2012, 2:22 PM
FirstAvenger - 12/12/2012, 2:24 PM
Wow, that was crappy he looks like an terrible version of Bane.
Giznad - 12/12/2012, 2:24 PM
the first few looked like a more mutated Baraka, but a couple at least had a Deadpool mask influence. Idk why every single person is complaining.
Luminus - 12/12/2012, 2:27 PM
@Giznad: Fox mole! >:)
