So, San Diego Comic-Con was last week, and I wasn't really following it. However, it's recently come to my attention that they showed the first footage of the Deadpool movie at SDCC, and some people leaked it online. This movie has been planned since X-Men Origins: Wolverine, with the only major problem I can recall being Ryan Reynolds' shooting schedule. Finally, after years of Development Hell, we're getting our first sneak peak at what a Deadpool movie will be like.
One thing you may notice is that Deadpool almost looks like he was ripped right from his video game from last year. That's because Ryan Reynolds performed motion-capture for this footage, with the suit being the layered over that, also allowing for the mask to actually make expressions, which I think is cool. It won't be like most superhero movies where there's no visible expressions under the mask. Anyway, it's the type of humor and ass-kicking you'd expect from the Merc with a Mouth, and it's awesome to see him in live-action.
Personally, I'd love to see this movie get greenlit. Deadpool has slowly been becoming one of my favorite super-somethings for the past couple years, and with the release of his game last year, the hype for this movie only increased for me! Marvel, Fox, please, make this movie happen! ASAP!
HBM, signing out...
P.S. Within the next week or so, I'll be starting something special. And this time, it won't be like those things I ended up abandoning within a week or so. It'll be legit.
