A little editorial here: I like to think that I'm generally pretty good about managing my expectations when it comes to film adaptations. I understand that you have to accept certain creative sacrifices to get stuff like video games and comic books up onto the big screen, so as long as it's still entertaining, I'm willing to look past the unnecessary love interest or the organic web-spinners.
Sometimes, though, it just goes too far, and while X-Men Origins: Wolverine certainly had its issues, what really stuck in my craw was what they did to Deadpool. Not to get too spoilery here, but it basically flies in the face of everything that makes the chatty mercenary such a compelling character in the first place, and it certainly makes the talk of an upcoming Deadpool movie spin-off a little confusing.
So it brings me great joy to hear, via IGN, that Deadpool, the real Deadpool, will be returning as a playable character in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. This isn't an official announcement from Activision, though the evidence--an ad that came with X-Men Origins: Wolverine prominently featuring Deadpool--is compelling enough. I thought the first game capitalized on his wise-cracker personality well, and with the heavier Civil War story line anchoring the sequel, it sounds like it might benefit from a little comic relief.
