Deadpool movie


Recommended Posts

Thinking about this-- depending on how much they play into Cable's comic book back stories, I could see problems with next movie hitting its desired mark.


That's a lot for a casual movie-goer, casual comic book fan or casual anyone to take in.


However, I wonder if a Deadpool and Cable movie maybe loses something if you DON'T touch on that rather convoluted history.


Big part of Cable's charm, for me anyway, is he's not just straight-man to Deadpool, he's straight-man to his own ridiculous origin. I love that.


The first movie took a leap of faith and assumed a certain amount of viewer knowledge of the X-Men though and that worked out just fine so maybe there's a happy middle ground to be had.





I think you'll see a LOT of superhero movies trying to chase the Deadpool formula.

And I don't think many, if any of them will nail it the same way.

Deadpool was great but it was great because it stood out as different. Take that away from it and I don't know how well that film or any of the films trying to emulate it hold up.


Not looking to take away from Deadpool being a decent flick-- I liked it very much-- but put out too much of a good thing and, well, you know.


Deadpool itself though still has at least one easy cash-in-- I can't imagine any fan wouldn't want to see Cable in the next one.

Yeah I agree with all of that. Of course Hollywood is going to try to copy what made Deadpool a success--step one: start slapping R ratings on movies like Dawn of Justice and Wolverine. I'm not saying that is going to automatically make those movies bad, but their motivation for doing that is so obvious.


I can imagine Cable being added would make this the ultimate straight man/funny man superhero flick. Yeah Colossus filled that roll the first time out, with success, IMO. But adding Cable tot he mix will probably kick that up to an 11.
