There exists and interesting similarity in the relationships between the comic book movie fans and the Deadpool movie, and Captain Ahab and Moby Dick. Lovers of the Merc With The Mouth have spent years and exhumed quite a bit of energy begging and waiting for the feature to actually happen, but it has long felt like a fruitless venture with no positive outcome in sight. But now everything is different. In fact, now everything is great. People: the Deadpool movie is actually happening!
Reports of the project’s long-awaited emergence from development hell were reported all over this past week, as 20th Century Fox officially put Deadpool on their release calendar – the finished product now set to come out on February 12, 2016. Because we’ve been following the movie so closely over the last few years, it feels like we already know a ton about it: Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wrote the script, first time director and VFX artist Tim Miller is directing, and it’s been promised that the feature will completely un-write all of the terrible things we saw happen to the character in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But as much as we know, there is still a ton that remains a complete mystery. A complete, delicious, tantalizing mystery that may or may not taste like chimichangas.
Helping me break down all things Deadpool related on Hero Blend this week is the always terrific Roth Cornet from IGN, who has more than a few very interesting thoughts of her own about the psychotic mercenary’s next big screen appearance.
