It was one of the longest film battles we’ve seen, and after countless roadblocks, disagreements, skepticism and complete hopelessness, the Deadpool movie is finally going to see the light this weekend. No more hoping and wishing Deadpool fans, your cruel hero has arrived.
Thanks to the determination by the creative team behind Deadpool, FOX didn’t just get the movie made, they also allowed it to be made for adults. Can you imagine Deadpool not being able to curse and brutally kick ass? In fact, the final product has impressed FOX so much that they’ve already signed off on the sequel and they are anticipating about $65 million in sales for the opening weekend. Whether Tim Miller (Director) is going to be part of the sequel has yet to be seen, but the rest of the cast seems to be on board.
Just in case you haven’t heard the story yet, Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is a special forces operative who is diagnosed with multiple organ cancer. His only solution seems to be an experimental cure, but it turns out to be something completely else. Wilson becomes the test bunny for Francis Freeman, who tortures him for days and leaves him disfigured. Even though Wilson doesn’t have cancer anymore he looks like a monster, which is when he officially becomes Deadpool. After he escapes the facility he plans on getting revenge and hopefully a cure.
There is a mixture of humor and action in this movie, because Deadpool is known for his dirty mouth along with his ability to leave a massive blood trail. We’re also looking forward to seeing his ever devoted friend, Weasel (T.J. Miller), and Blind Al (Leslie Uggams) who ends up as Deadpool’s roommate.
Scriptwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are already working on the next script, so you can be sure the sequel isn’t going to take nearly as long to make. If you’re not a fan yet, just check out the Deadpool movie this weekend. You’ll quickly become a dedicated follower like the rest of us.
