With the recent record breaking performance by Guardians of the Galaxy at the box office, some people are wondering what is next for the Marvel movie franchise. If Marvel knows what is good for them, they”ll start working on the movie fans have been craving since X-Men Origins: Wolverine came out…The Deadpool movie.
Who is Deadpool you ask? Deadpool is one of the most fun characters in all of comic books. He was a part of the Weapon X program that made Wolverine the ferocious mutant that he is today. What makes Deadpool unique is the hilarious dialogue that is employed in his comic books. While most superheroes are brooding and dark with a lot of pain, Deadpool is a funny mercenary who even breaks the fourth wall, as seen here.
Ryan Reynolds played the character in the Wolverine movie back in 2009 and did such a marvelous job that rumors immediately started circulating about a separate Deadpool movie. Unfortunately, to this day those rumors have yet to come to fruition.
But recently, test footage from the planned movie has surfaced and people are starting to get giddy again. Rumor has it, the test footage was released to gauge interest in the film to see if it will be the box office smash that studios hope it will be. Well, based on the amount of views on the video and the buzz that it created, fans are SUPER INTERESTED!

One of the problems people find with the movie is that most summer blockbusters come with a PG-13 rating and a Deadpool movie would need to be rated R for it to be an authentic Deadpool movie, as Deadpool has quite a potty mouth and is known to be a quite gory comic book as compared to many of the other comics.
But that”s what makes it awesome and unique! It”s a funny, different take on being a superhero (or anti-hero as Deadpool is often classified). We”ve all seen the super heroes go through their struggles with hardly any kind of humor. Sure, there are funny throwaway lines in some Spider Man movies and Robert Downey Jr. has perfected the character, Tony Stark with his witticisms, but there is no hero quite like Deadpool. His movie would keep fans laughing and interested all while providing the action that would be necessary for a superhero movie.
So this is my plea to Marvel, Fox, Sony, whoever has the rights to the Deadpool movie (I”m not quite sure) – PLEASE MAKE THIS MOVIE. It will be awesome and you will make a lot of fans” dreams come true. Honestly, before the movie came out, The Guardians of the Galaxy were a relatively unknown Marvel commodity. Deadpool has a cult following and would certainly bring in just as much, if not more interest and money as Guardians. That is…if it is done right.
Deadpool has such a cult following that he is one of the fan favorite cosplay heroes at Comic Cons across the country. And these people know how to do it right.
The Deadpool movie would have to be equal parts funny and action-y. But I have faith in the big guns in Hollywood to take care of this. I beleive in Deadpool and I believe in the Deadpool Movie! SO MAKE IT ALREADY!
