I recently played a videogame starring this character. The game is pretty bad (an opinion that Deadpool himself shares and expresses many times throughout). But the jokes were really funny. I kept playing the shitty game just to hear more of Deadpool's jokes. I think I could actually be down for a movie starring this guy, and I agree that Ryan Rodney Reynolds is the man to play him.

However...there seems to be more of this bullshit about making the film PG13? Have they really not learned from their mistakes on this yet? I couldn't find any definite answer on this, so maybe it's still being discussed.

I can't really find anything on who else is in this movie. Have any of the X-Men cast agreed to be in it? Most of them seem to have good senses of humour. Ellen Page would be totally down for this, she was really funny in SUPER. Actually, a lot of the X-Men cast seem to have decent senses of humour and only a few of strike me being really expensive. I mean, I figure there's no way Jennifer Lawrence is doing this. Fassbender probably no, too. Hugh Jackman would probably have fun, but he's probably too expensive. I hope they make a joke out of how they can't afford some of the big names. Just recast Wolverine with Charlie Sheen or somebody.

Some guys in the talkbacks have actually thought of some very clever and funny ways to turn the PG13 in this movie's favor by making fun of its own neuteredness.

Deadpool has a huge fight with a bunch of ninjas or something but gets pissed because they don't bleed when he stabs them, so he frustratingly stabs them over and over, loudly demanding they bleed.

He goes to a strip club only all the boobs are covered up by those black CENSORED bars. He rips one off but his thought bubbles cover them up again.

That's how you make a Deadpool movie, not by turning it into Quentin Tarantino

Hitchcock is laughing his ass off somewhere every time someone claims they need to see more blood and gore for violence in a film to be effective. but then those people probably don't know who Hitchcock is anyway.....

Imposing the parameters of one man's success on another man's work is just a recipe for sameness.

Some filmmakers use explicit violence, some don't. And the successful ones match their sensibilities with their choice of story, tone, and subject matter.

If you take a filmmaker who uses explicit violence, such as David Cronenberg, Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorcese, or Quentin Tarantino, and tell them to tone it down because John Ford didn't need explicit violence to make a great movie, it's like telling The Beatles that they're cheap pandering lousy musicians because Mozart didn't need an electric guitar to write a hit song.

what I am saying is that it is not necessary. that is all. varying styles of storytelling are great, I was a big Tarantino fan before most people knew who he was, btw, but the fact is his strongest pieces of work are not his blood and gore and when you go back and watch Pulp Fiction there isn't all that much shown compared to what happens. and if you removed any graphic shots that are "R" territory it is still as great a movie. I would argue much more strongly for language being the most impactful casualty of a PG-13 rating compared to R and THAT is what would hamstring any Tarantino film from being all it could be. you can effectively show and imply violence and blood to a pretty strong degree and keep things PG-13, but if you have your killer thug characters speaking in PG-13 language then you start breaking the audience's ability to buy into the "reality" of the story.

i think whether you or i or anyone else thinks the violence, gore, etc is necessary or not is irrelevant. that should be the artist's decision. changing or removing something from the film solely to get a particular rating is bound to compromise the director's vision. if they didn't think it was important or necessary, they wouldn't have wasted the time and money to film it and edit it into the film. once the film comes out, you can debate all you want whether the film needed that stuff, but you can't have that debate if it's not there to begin with. you can never know what the stuff taken out may have added or contributed to the film. and just because some other film may have had gratuitous and unnecessary violence and gore that could have been removed, each film is it's own unique and separate piece of work and there's no blanket statement that applies to all films equally.

ultimately, i want to see the director's vision on screen, compromised as little as possible by ratings concerns, commercial considerations, or anything that isn't directly related to the film content itself.

Of all the million superhero films coming out in the next five years, this is the only one I will pay to see.

So fuck you Kevin Feige!
Fuck you Tom Rothman!
Fuck you empty chair where somebody with leadership and vision should be sitting at Warner Brothers!

Honestly have no way of telling whether this is going to be any good or not. The director is a complete unknown, Ryan Reynolds is inconsistent and Fox's track record with comic book movies is spotty at best. But I do like that they seem to be leaning into the lunacy of the character. If it's a mess, hopefully it's a glorious mess.

They should totally make that the poster, by the way.

I caught THE VOICES the other night, and I have to say that R-Cubed gave the performance of his career (so far). Which I guess isn't hard seeing as he is mostly in bad movies. The overall movie is pretty good too, but Reynolds just nails his character. There were just so many layers going on there. And the guy is a pretty good dancer, too. The film definitely had a lot of Mike Judge influence going on, so if you like Judge's stuff, you should check it out.

Anyway, Reynolds can definitely play a homicidal maniac who hears voices in his head, so I can't wait to see what he does with Deadpool when he turns it up to 11.

There have been a ton of promotional images released for this movie. I would guess we're getting a real trailer soon.

Does anybody find it weird how real shit can look like CGI? I mean, apparently that really is R-Cubed in a costume, but I would've guessed it was animated. It really looks like a cartoon brought to life.

Based on the non-stop promotional images it looks like they're having a lot of fun making this; hopefully that translates into a good movie.

They do, sort of, and I think it's part of why the movie's been so successful. They're not tearing down the genre exactly, but there's a sense of anarchy and exuberance that's a lot of fun. And it's just so shockingly filthy. I don't know if I'd want to watch this same movie all the time, but in today's landscape it's very refreshing.

Director Tim Miller, Ryan Reynolds Part Company On ‘Deadpool 2’
Mike Fleming Jr wrote:EXCLUSIVE: After a series of creative differences between Deadpool director Tim Miller and star Ryan Reynolds, Miller has exited Deadpool 2. He hadn’t formally signed a deal to continue, but he was developing the script and by all accounts had planned to return behind the camera for a film Fox will release in 2018.

I’ve confirmed from studio insiders this exit was over mutual creative differences, but this all ended amicably and the studio is very high on Miller and the expectation is the filmmaker will jump right into another big Fox project: Influx, an adaptation of the David Suarez novel that has a Mark Bomback script and is expected to launch a film trilogy.

This will come as a blow to fans of the original film, an audacious franchise launch that came out of nowhere to become one of the biggest movie success stories in recent years, and another major franchise for Emma Watts’ division at Fox. And everyone had a hand in shaping its unusual tone. That includes Miller — a VFX wiz hired to make his directorial debut on the project way back in 2011 — to writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and Reynolds, who first played ‘The Merc With A Mouth’ in the widely panned X-Men Origins: Wolverine (they sewed shut his mouth so he couldn’t speak) and lobbied hard for another chance on a movie that really captured the inherent fun in the comic book.

Much the way that Robert Downey Jr proved to be the perfect guy to play Tony Stark/Iron Man, Reynolds proved a glove fit for the scarred wisecracking, indestructible Deadpool. When these creative differences come up between actor and director, it is often the former that exits. But much the way it is with a handful of other franchises — Tom Cruise on Mission: Impossible, Hugh Jackman on Wolverine, Matt Damon on Bourne Identity or Downey on Iron Man — the star has the greatest influence. And here, Reynolds is also an active producer, along with Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner. They made the best of the situation as Miller removed himself from the fray and the studio turned him loose on creating another world with Influx.

Deadpool revived Reynolds’ career, and he was key to much of the clever and humorous marketing and promotion that paved the way for an initially unheralded film that got green lit after Miller leaked CGI test footage in 2014 that sparked the fanboy fuse, and rose to unprecedented levels of financial success. The picture grossed $782 million worldwide on a $58 million budget and broke many box office records, including highest grossing R-rated film ever, as well as the biggest grossing X-Men film. The key was its black humor and a hard R-rated tone that was the equivalent of anarchy and made most other superhero movies seem cookie cutter by comparison.

Miller’s exit just happened late Friday. Fox, which last week unveiled the first footage of Logan — which marks the final turn by Hugh Jackman as the stalwart X-Men star Wolverine — will be plenty busy making sure one of its most valuable franchises stays on track.

Inside the 'Deadpool 2' Fight Over 'Two Totally Different Movies' (Exclusive)
More details emerge about vastly different takes director and creative team had for sequel
Matt Donnelly and Umberto Gonzalez wrote:Soaring budgets and conflicting visions about story were at the heart of the creative rift between “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds and Tim Miller, that led to Miller leaving the director’s chair, multiple individuals told TheWrap.

The Saturday report that Miller would no longer return to helm the blockbuster’s sequel shocked fans, with both sides citing “creative differences” between Miller and his star as a reason. But those differences were vast, TheWrap has learned, and expanded to the long-devoted group at the film’s core.

A sequel to “Deadpool” was already in active development when the first went into production, one individual familiar with the project said.

Shortly after then-20th Century Fox CEO Jim Gianopulos confirmed a second movie at CinemaCon in April, cracks began to form in the creative team that also includes screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (“Zombieland”).

In initial sequel talks, Reynolds, Reese and Wernick envisioned a “scrappy,” raunchy and inexpensive movie, the insider said — in the vein of the first, which earned over $780 million worldwide on a $58 million budget. It’s a stunning return on a film Reynolds lobbied 11 years to make.

Miller, known more for his visual flair than for the brash antics that Reynolds and his writers embraced and that fans loved, wanted a more stylish take, one that would compete with mega-budget superhero movies, insiders said. But it would have cost three times as much as the original $58 million film, the first individual said.

“There were two totally different movies on the table, and one of them just wasn’t ‘Deadpool,” said the first insider, who is familiar with both concepts.

Reynolds, Reese and Wernick’s vision won.

One person said Gianopulos had been a “peacekeeper” between director and star during the production on the first film. He handed the reigns to Stacey Snider on Sept. 1, who has had input on a situation largely handled by 20th Century Fox President of Production Emma Watts.

Another party close to Fox said executives did not have to step in to manage relationships until well after the first film’s release.

Miller pivoted immediately to another priority Fox project, an adaptation of Daniel Suarez’s cyber-crime thriller “Influx.”

Representatives for Miller did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment, nor did reps for Reese or Wernick. A Reynolds spokesperson and 20th Century Fox declined to comment on the matter.

“Deadpool 2” does not currently have a release date. It was written by Reese and Wernick, and will feature popular character Domino, who, like Deadpool, is a former mercenary.

The part is hotly coveted, and those who have screen-tested for it include Kelly Rohrbach, Eve Hewson, Ruby Rose, Mackenzie Davis, Lizzy Caplan, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Sienna Miller, Sofia Boutella, Stephanie Sigman and Sylvia Hoeks.

Reynolds just completed a different collaboration with Reese and Wernick: “Life,” about an international space crew that finds life on Mars, which costars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson.

The Biggest Bombs and Blockbusters at the 2016 Box Office
Brent Lang wrote:The Biggest Flops:
“The BFG” (Disney)
Global Box Office: $178.4 million
Production Budget: $140 million
Why it Made the List:
The combination of Steven Spielberg and Roald Dahl was expected to result in a children’s classic. Instead of a new “E.T.,” the film about a big friendly giant was given a massive cold shoulder, losing tens of millions. For Spielberg, who hasn’t had a blockbuster hit since 2008’s “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” it’s a sign that a filmmaker who once had his finger firmly on pop culture’s pulse, may have lost his feel for the zeitgeist. He’ll try to recapture his mojo with 2018’s “Ready Player One,” an adaptation of a hit sci-fi novel.


The Biggest Hits:
“Deadpool” (Fox)
Global Box Office: $782.6 million
Production Budget: $58 million
Why it Made the List:
Why it Made the List: Ryan Reynolds reclaimed his spot on the A-list as the fourth-wall breaking, foul-mouthed, spandex sporting mercenary. The very R-rated comic book adaptation is also one of the most profitable films of the year. It was made for a mere $58 million –essentially the bagel budget on “The X-Men.”

'Logan': Why Rated R Shouldn't Be the Future of Superhero Movies
The real lesson from projects like the third Wolverine and 'Deadpool' is to take risks and grant more creative control to filmmakers.
