Deadpool Movie: 5 Reasons To Be Excited

27 October 2012 9:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

For those of you who don’t know (the real) Deadpool (also known as Wade Wilson), he’s a cult Weapon X man, a slightly unhinged mercenary with a military background and razor-sharp wit, and thankfully for us fans, there’s a movie currently in development to be directed by Tim Miller (visual effects Creative Supervisor on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Rockfish). Before we go into reasons why the film (and the 2013 game) is going to rule, here’s a little background on the character…

Basically, Deadpool’s got the same regenerative powers as Wolverine (which actually originate from the popular character himself), except there’s a particularly nasty catch – he’s scarred for life, because of accelerated cancerous cells in his body. He really is not the superhuman lazer-shooting muppet you saw in the Wolverine: Origins film – he’s way more awesome than that.

Long story short-ish, »
