Deadpool Writer Joe Kelly Puts a Contract out on Weapon XI
The Deadpool Writer dishes on what he wants to see in Fox's movie adaptation of the Merc with a Mouth and also gives us a great suggestion how Deadpool should break the 4th wall!
"I'm pretty excited about it," he told MTV News during New York Comic Con. "If Ryan Reynolds stays involved, I know he's somebody who's loved Deadpool forever and was a huge champion of the film. I think that they know what worked and didn't work in 'Wolverine,' and they want to do a Deadpool movie that the fans are going to love."
Joe Kelly is the first soul to go on record stating that he thinks "they know what worked and didn't work in 'Wolverine,' and they want to do a Deadpool movie that the fans are going to love." I hope that statement is not full of holes and rings true!
Has Joe Kelly, who also happens to be the "Ben 10" co-creator and author of "I Kill Giants" and of course one of the great authorities on "Deadpool," since witting the opening run on the character's first solo series late in the 90's, even seen the Deadpool script?
"I have not been privy to the script, but I think it's in pretty good hands," he continued. "I want to see Deadpool be Deadpool. If they're willing to take some risks, I think it will be pretty special."
Kelly went on to elaborate on some of those "risks," echoing Reynolds' previous comments that "Deadpool" has to break down the fourth wall.
"You have to strip down that action genre and play with it the same way we did in the comics," he explained. "You need to be willing to poke fun at it, and be willing to wink and nod at the audience, and then immediately flip the switch and have Deadpool be the most kick-ass, bad-ass guy that you've ever seen on screen."
How would you have Deadpool break down the 4th wall Joe? To which he explains:
I personally would have him kill Weapon XI in the opening sequence," Joe laughed. "I think that would be something fans would enjoy and be a nod, like, hey, we're going to get it right. But that's just me!"
Bring it! That would be epic and put a band aid on the boo boo that Lauren Shuler Donner made on X-Men Origins: Wolverine that was Barakapool. Barakapool must die at the hands of Deadpool whie breaking the 4th wall. KILL HIM!
