Deadpool Movie to get Reboot

| 18 Oct 2009 19:12

Not keen on the version of Deadpool you saw in X-Men Origins Wolverine? It seems that you're not alone.

Deadpool fans were apoplectic when they discovered that the 'merc-with-a-mouth' had been silenced at the end of the Wolverine movie and what this meant for the upcoming Deadpool movie. Fortunately for those fans however, it seems that Hollywood can occasionally do something right, as series producer Lauren Shuler Donner is keen on seeing the movie rebooted.

"I want to ignore the version of Deadpool that we saw in Wolverine and just start over again. Reboot it. Because this guy talks, obviously, and to muzzle him would be insane... We're right in the thick of talking to writers right now, and hopefully by November we'll have decided who's going to do it," she said.

"We need someone really imaginative because we want to do some really innovative, ambitious stuff. Ryan's mentioned this in an interview already but there are parts where he's going to break the fourth wall and talk directly to the audience in the cinema. We have to work out how to do that. I don't know that Fox will agree with all our decisions, but we'll see!" She added.

Just when I almost lost all hope, something like this happens. What? No, I'm not crying, I've just got something in my eye.
