Is Nolan North voicing Deadpool a kind of clever joke?

#1 Edited by Tajasaurus (989 posts) -

Deadpool is known as a very self aware character, and this looks like a very self aware video game that could, potentially, play upon video game clichés. I don't know a more mainstream and well known video game voice actor than Nolan North, so do you think this could all just be a tie-in on that theme?

It's probably just another pay cheque for Nolan, but if there was ever a AAA game that subtly could poke a lot of fun at it's own industry, I think this could be it.

He has voiced the character before: In Marvel vs. Capcom 3 as well as before that in that Ultimate Hulk vs. Wolverine movie.

He's voiced Deadpool in all the cartoons he's appeared in (such as Hulk vs.) so no.

I'm gonna say no but I do like your theory.

Hoped it would be Ryan Reynolds.... but Nolan would be good too.

Thats not why he got the job, but they had better have a joke in game about it.

Also, I'm pretty sure this isnt a AAA game......

It would be a good cheap laugh if he make a quip about how he sounds just like Nolan North.

The best in-joke they could have would be to have Nolan voice every single character in the game using the Drake voice. They'd have to bring back the Northies for that!

" Why do seagulls fly over the sea?" is a clever joke, this is just NN doing what he does.
