Favorite Character Ruined...

#1 Posted by The_A_Drain (3910 posts) -

Yeah yeah, not Wolverine, I dislike Hugh Jackman but he did a pretty damned good job on this one.

Deadpool, my favorite character possibly from anything ever, has been utterly raped by this movie, I went with the sole intention of seeing Deadpool in a movie and I was utterly disgusted with his treatment. I didn't expect them to get his story right, I mean they couldn't even get the titular characters story correct, let alone someone most people hardly know about. But they couldn't have got it more wrong, or given him a stupider weapon.

I mean, he looks like Kabal from MK ffs, who funnily enough is actually based on Wolverine.

I wanted to facepalm until I broke my own nose.

He was ok for the first half of the movie, than later...

at least he broke the fourth wall in the after credits scene!

Isn't he supposed to be more like a ninja turtle?

Somebody not liking a representation of a comic character in a movie. Stop the fucking presses.

Yeah, at the outset Ryan Reynolds did a great job of protraying Wade Wilson, but then he was replaced by a stunt lookalike who had martial arts training for all the crazy flippy, arm-sword scenes.

As for the fourth wall after the ending, not in my cinema :\ I'm glad they did it but I got the stupid wolvering "Drinking to Remember" scene at the end instead, apparently it was random which ending the cinema received.

Kabal looks like Predator.

Ohh sorry not Kabal, the other one, Baraka.

I didnt get to see the after credits scene. So I'll probably have to see it on blu-ray or something. I am glad they saved him breaking the fourth in the after credits though as I dont like that crap. Even if it is from the comic.

I've heard rumors there is actually a third secret ending where Wade picks up the severed head of Weapon XI, meaning it was merely a clone of him, which would allow him to return as himself in future movies. Makes sense as in the credits, Weapon XI was not played by Reynolds. That, and the Deadpool spin-off was basically green-lit today after how well Origins did, so expect much more, non-ruined Deadpool stuff in the future.

Why do people dislike Hugh Jackman? He's great.

I think Ryan Reynolds is definitely the guy to play him.  In terms of THAT alone, I think he was alright.  I enjoyed him.  Nonetheless, I hope the Deadpool movie doesn't end up sucking balls and they remain a little more dedicated to making it awesome.

I dont know where you heard that crazy shit, but unless I missed something Reynolds said he would like to do a proper Pool movie but it was unlikely to happen. As for that mysterious third ending, don't beleive it until I see it i'm afraid.

The reason Reynolds isn't credited as weapon XI is because e didn't play weapon XI. They had to get a martial arts expert in for those scenes (on top of the fact Reynolds was unhappy about Pool being done in that fashion)

At least it's left open for a sequel, and he's left with an open mouth.
