Deadpool Trifecta is now in play…
We are all in agreement that the Wolverine movie sucked, right? Somehow, magically, it did, despite an awesome cast that was acting as hard as they could, and the fact it was a Wolverine movie, it just sucked. Awful script, stupid story, it ranks close to Daredevil in my mind as a movie with a whole mess of fight scenes and yet nothing happened. No one died, no one developed as a character. Don’t even get me started on Sabretooth. It was just bad.
And they screwed up Deadpool, which, honestly, was the worst offense. (If that stupid thing at the end even was DP.)
But there might still be hope.
First win: Ryan Reynolds still wants to be DP. His performance as the Merc with a Mouth was spot on. He’s a big ol’ comic nerd, too, with appearances in the Blade movies and starring role in Green Lantern. I’m hoping they’ll mess up his pretty face.
Second win: Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the guys behind the awesome Zombieland, have been working on a script for the film. Zombieland was a great movie and a terrific mix of gore and humor that DP needs.
Third Win? Robert Rodriguez is in talks to direct. Rodriguez has Machete coming out soon, and his next project is Spy Kids 4, but he’s a very visionary director who is more than capable when it comes to action flicks. Sin City anyone?
The stars are slowly aligning for the Deadpool flick. We’ll try to keep our expectations in check, but so far it’s looking like the BEST MOVIE EVAR.
