Hows about Gambit & Wolverine? Neither character can carry a movie on their own but together they'd be great. The bits Jackman and Kitch shared in the Wolvie were some of the most enjoyable parts so I think it'd work. Deadpool movie'll be cool. Bring in Cable too.

As long as Ryan Reynolds is in it, I will watch. That is, and always has been, a general rule of thumb for me :D

In the interviews I've seen Reynolds do for Wolverine he seems to genuinely 'get' Deadpool, what are the chances of him, with his relative clout/box office draw, taking a producer's role on this and steering the project the right way?

why do people get paid to come up with these ideas? "lets give the character out of the already crap wolverine movie a spinoff even though he was only in it for a few minutes and he was last seen with his head lopped off and he's the kind of character whose fairly underground and has NO broad cinema audience appeal. Yes Brilliant idea. Lets go for steak."

he was one of the highlights in the film and way underused even in the ending it was far to quick .. wolverine was a good movie but had no real substance to much here and there but well worth a watch dead pool could be made dark inpossibly bleak and still contain his sardonic humour maybe a little of the spawn movie with a dark humour ... just an opionion

SPOILER!! Weapon XI is *NOT* Deadpool. - 6/5/2009 6:47:21 PM

Weapon XI isn't Deadpool! Not only is he played by a different actor (Scott Adkins) but the *THIRD* easter egg ending has Deadpool looking at Weapon XI's dead body saying 'Who're you supposed to be?'

He's wearing a long black coat so when you first see the scene you think it's Sabertooth before the reveal.

Excellent news! Having seen the Deadpool ending on Youtube before it was whipped off by the Fox Lawyer Militia, I'm less concerned about the legacy of Barakapool. As long as they get shot of the sword-arms, I'd be comfortable with building on the continuity set up for Deadpool in the Wolvie film.

Reynolds won't necessarily be hidden behind makeup or mask for the Deadpool movie given the characters access to a hologram generator...was that too geeky?

In all fairness, yes singers success. He made it accessible for pretty much anyone who walked into the cinema.

Its got nothing to do with discounting charecters, just why evryone jumps at the hype of yet another comic book movie coming along. Yes I've read alot of comics and I'm fond of them still, just look at what they did to wolverine,


does anyone seriously think that deadpool won't be full of evry other charecter from marvel in it?

Have to agree on the complete wastage of Reynolds in Wolverine (though did rather enjoy the rest of the film), and so am thrilled that we are getting a proper film! I have been waiting for both Deadpool and Reynolds to become big movie stars. The idea of a fourth-wall breaking, wise-ass talking FUN comic movieis unbelievably exciting. Bring it on!

Yep this should do pretty well I imagine sounds like a recipe for certain success, if Wolverine can make a $85mill opening then this has to come close

hold on, re-read what it says. it says this film will not use the mask aka judge dread WTF. judge dread was a bad film on many levels the man one being the lack of mask. The costume and the jokes are deadpool. Do it properly or dont do it at all

I think weapon x at the end of wolverine had to be some kind of clone or something? They say they killed wade in the film but we never saw it. Wade could now be disfigured etc leading up to a reunion with victor maybe? i just wanna see victorr again he was the best thing in wolverine?

Will fox take the same route that they did with wolverine?? Take wolverine (replace with deadpool) then put every other mutants name in a hat and draw at random until u have at least 10 mutants and then write a script around them. Bravo big hollywood action!!

I saw Wolverine last night and the only two credit extras I saw were one with Stryker, and a really crap one at the end with Wolverine 'drinking to remember'. There was nothing about Deadpool opening his eyes!

There are different endings for different cinemas. I'm sure the one wit Ryenolds is on YouTube somewhere. It's literally about twelve seconds long. He picks up his own head and it says 'shhhh'. Sin é. That's it.

Brian Singer dressed the Xmen up as the Village People.

Downey Jr, Bridges, Bana, Norton, Christian Bale, Ledger don't worry about their faces being covered up. They understand the importance of fidelity to a character and respect it. Singer did not, leaving the Xmen leather clad embarrassments. Not wanting to cover up Jackman's face in Xmen I? No one knew who he was then!

Be faithful to the source material and respect the lore. And give the Wolverine his suit back.

He said "have their faces covered up", which they all did. Bana and Norton were replaced by CGI, Ledger wore heavy makeup for the whole film and Bridges was replaced by a big robot at the end.

Thanks man. You know I was going to bracket how their faces were covered up after each name but deleted as it sounded insulting to people's intelligence, I thought "the Empire readership is way smarter than that".

the reason for wolverine not wearing the old comic suit is because it would look stupid when applied to the semi-real world the film is set in. i dont ever recall singer saying anywhere that he didnt want to cover jackman's face up. link?

I can't remember where I read it, something like "with all these great stars, why would I cover up their faces?" - and then he coverd up Sir Ian's. And that argument of his is bogus, semi-real world? What like the semi-real world's of the new Batman and Ironman films? Can you imagine Batman walking around in just a leather jacket? It's lazy film making, he's using that as an excuse, just find a way of making his costume applicable, necessary.

Brian: "What gives you the right? What's the difference between you and me?"
Batman: "I'm wearing a leather jacket"

Isn't the big difference that most of the people you are talking about have an alter ego, so the film studios get their quota of Downey Jr or Bale face time, then they can strap on the mask and be the hero. Wolverine is always Wolverine - he'd not a mild mannered shop keeper by day and a crazy retractable knife hands super hero by night.

LOL
That's what I meant by making it applicable, necessary or relevant. Have the suit do something, or mean something. It's lazy, it's part of the history of the character and I don't believe slapping him in a black leather gimp suit did anything to enhance the character/story.
