I was reminded today that they’re making another Wolverine movie. Which, in turn, reminded me of how they horribly butchered the character Deadpool in the first Wolverine movie.
It wasn’t even because they gave him all those wacky powers. One can do a reimagining of a character, sure. But when they take a core component of the character’s mythos (The Merc with the Mouth) and make it something it’s not (The trying to look too cool person who can’t talk at all), it ceases to be a reimagining and ends up being just a completely different character. They should’ve named him something else, like Amalgamation, or Person Formerly Known As Deadpool.
Really, all they had to do was make him a depressed Bugs Bunny, to steal the apt description made by a certain blogger. Then again. I guess I had my hopes too high for a spinoff movie based off the funny pages.
Alright. I’m tired of writing this on my phone. I don’t even know why I am. My computer is literally right there.
For those of you who bothered to read this and don’t know who Deadpool is (FOR SHAME!), he’s the guy with the yellow speech bubbles who shows up in the second frame. The other guy with the beanie was just some kid he was helping out during like 1 or 2 issues. I think his name was Kiddiepool.
