Pictures! Deadpool in Wolverine Movie - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...
Pictures! Deadpool in Wolverine Movie
Yeah, I know I just did a Deadpool update, but The Deadpool Bugle just posted a couple of pictures of Deadpool from the trailer that aired at SD Comic-Con, so I had to post again.

Obviously pictures make me excited, but...I'm confused. Why isn't he in his uniform? Why isn't he deformed? If he's in Wolverine's Weapon X team, this has to be post-mutation, right? Because if he wasn't all spiffed out with the healing factor, he wouldn't be on the team...unless this is post-treatment but pre-Hospice? If I recall correctly, he was on a team for a bit with Slayback, etc. before he iced out of the Weapon X program, at which point he was sent to the Hospice, the events of which turned him into the Deadpool we all know and love madly. So...maybe that's it? If so, I really, really hope we get to see his transformation, although I have no idea how they'd do it justice without taking too much time. Because Deadpool isn't Deadpool until he's a) got his healing factor; b) deformed (poor baby); and c) completely insanely hilarious.

Anyway, at least he's wearing red and black. And has his katanas. I'll just have to hold my breath and wait for more, hoping like hell they didn't screw with canon too much.

Now that's interesting, to say the least.
To see his transformation in this movie would be all kinds of awesome, but I think it will be hard to pull this off well in a movie that technically isn't about him.
Or maybe they want to save the story of his transformation in case he gets his own movie or something, and in Wolverine we get him pre!Hospice only? Dunno how I'd feel about that...

Let's just hope for the best. *crosses fingers*

Yeah, I dunno. I'm hoping we get post-Hospice DP, unless they, like, already have plans to give him his own movie. But I don't see that happening - I could see him getting his own if he got a good buzz from this movie, though, so I really hope they do a good job with him.

See the comment below for a hilarious theory re: the movie version.

Yes, I agree, hopefully we'll get to see 'Pool in all his insane glory, with scars and everything.

Heh, now that's a really funny thought, and also a nice explanation.
D'aawww, Wade wants to be pretty. );

Poor Wade.

Yeah, I was really curious to see how they'd handle the deformity - they'd better not ignore it and stuff!

in my effort to be a good reporter i was following the Cup o' Joe liveblog from SDCC and one of the commenters had a great theory about the lack of scarring.

"m hoping deadpool has an image inducer set to ryan reynolds. actually that would be a great line to keep the continuity of him breaking the fourth wall."

the image inducer hasn't been used in any of the recent comics, but it was really prevalent in Kelly's run.

OK, that just made me laugh out loud. Although it WOULD explain things. Hah.

You are an awesome Deadpool reporter! Thanks for being so dedicated. :)

I looked at the picture. I'm confused-- they're not the greatest quality, but Deadpool looks kinda hot.

Well, Ryan Reynolds is playing him, and he's a hottie. Also, pre-mutation, he was a handsome and/or striking guy, if the pictures in his comics are anything to go by. So if they're showing him pre-mutation (or during one of the few times when he didn't have the mutation, for instance during a stint he did with Weapon X where they gave his DNA a kick that eliminated the disfigurement) then it's not surprising he looks good. But for the time period, I don't really understand why he's not disfigured, unless this falls in the very small window between when he was injected with Wolvie's DNA and when he was sent to the Hospice - he DID do some Weapon X work then, but if that's what this is my concern is we won't get to see him after he truly becomes Deadpool. And that's the Deadpool I want to see.
