Leak Sauce #5 Deadpool Movie

Leaking info to you and bringing the discussion.

So this has been known by many for a while but I figured I would gather all of the facts for you and shove them here into this little post. For those of you who don't know who Deadpool is, let me take you guys to the side here and have a sit down.

Deadpool in a nutshell: Deadpool is the merc with a mouth. Hilarious antics, over the top jokes, and breaking the fourth wall are actually a norm. Deadpool/Wade Wilson's main superpower involves an accelerated healing factor (which he got from an experiment that involved taking cells from Wolverine of the X-Men). The healing factor was intended to cure him of his cancer but this backfired by disfiguring his skin and rapidly regenerated his brain cells which consequently turned him insane.

So here's what is known:
1) Ryan Reynolds is playing Deadpool.
2) Robert Rodriguez is signing the deal to be the director of the movie.
3) The script was made by the writers for Zombieland.
4) It has been confirmed that Deadpool will break the fourth wall as God intended.
5) Ryan Reynolds is a huge Deadpool fan and gets to play the role of "authentication police" for any material presented.
6) Release date is 2011.

That isn't a giant pile of info to go on but it's something. The names being thrown around make it sound like this should be a ton of win but we'll have to wait and see. If I find more info I will probably edit this post and add it in later.

Edit: May 26, 2011 - UPDATE
I've noticed that this article has been getting a strange amount of traffic around the web. For those of you just showing up, I regret to inform you that this post is mostly outdated but don't worry because I've got the updates right here.

The Updates
- Robert Rodriguez won't be the director and instead that role goes to Tim Miller (sigh worthy).
- The release date obviously won't be 2011 since Ryan Reynolds just finished up with Green Lantern.
- 20th Century Fox is going to release this.
- One of Xavier's mutants is getting a role. Word on the street says: Colossus. (strange choice)
- Also starring: Deadpool's love interest Vanessa Carlysle, his pal Blind Al, contact Patch, and Weapon X teammates Sluggo, Wyre, Ajax, and Garrison Kane.

This is Kylak signing out and getting ready to repair the fourth wall frequently with duct tape.


  1. I am willing to take off my sunglasses and say "YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH" on top of a mountain while fighting fifty owl bears and twenty T-Rexes.

    Meaning I approve. I hope the movie turns out as awesome as possible.

  2. My fanboism is shrieking inside! I hope they pull it off

  3. I agree with you both. I don't want another disappointment like X-Men Origins. Ryan reported that Weapon XI Deadpool will NOT be in this movie. That's a huge step forward to say the least.

  4. I've never read a Deadpool comic but from what I've seen and heard, he's an amazing super hero. From what you've mentioned in your article it sounds like this movie is going to be amazingly accurate in comparison with the comics, which to me is the most important thing with these movies. As far as I can tell the best movies with source material are the ones based on comic books. Superman, Spiderman, Daredevil and of course, you can't deny the success of The Dark Knight.

    Speaking of comic book based movies, have you seen Scott Pilgrim VS the World yet? It's riddled with video game references both vague and specific and has a great feel to it. It, unlike most movies nowadays, doesn't try to be realistic in the least. It tries to feel like a real-life video game and does a good job. There are times where it breaks the fourth wall, for instance a character curses excessively in one scene and the main character asks "How are you doing that with your mouth?" in response to the censor. I believe any gamer will enjoy this movie and it's definitely worth checking it out. Beyond already watching it in theaters I plan to definitely buy the DVD. XD I'm not usually one to advertise but I don't usually enjoy movies as much as I enjoyed that one... it doesn't seem too far off topic either...

    GOD. Would you believe I had this whole comment typed out, then my internet decided to fuck up on me. I had to retype the whole thing. It has the same message but damn that was a pain. *Waves fist at his wireless*

  5. Accuracy is definitely a key to success when it comes to Comic Book characters in film. The Zombieland writers are apparently Deadpool fans as well so that could lend itself to higher accuracy.

    I sadly haven't seen Scott Pilgrim VS the World yet. I've been looking forward to it all summer and still haven't managed to get over to a Movie Theater to take a seat and enjoy. I'm working on that.

    That's a HUGE bummer! I'm glad you took the extra time to retype it though.

  6. Yeah. Zombieland was also a great movie so that makes me even more excited to see Deadpool.

    I hope you get around to seeing it soon. I hadn't heard about it until just about a month before it came out.
