Deadpool sequel begins, Wolverine ending revealed
So the Deadpool spin off begins development at Fox, and there's not a glimmer of surprise. As I said in the comments the other day, X-Men Origins: Wolverine was really a proving ground for spin offs and prequels galore, so expect to see them all coming now.
Since then we're heard of the Wolverine sequel, and now the Deadpool spin off, pretty soon it'll be Magneto going ahead, Gambit, and perhaps even a few of the other lead X-Men characters.
Now though, Deadpool seems to be the first spin off's spin off to begin with Ryan Reynolds attached to bring the character back in his own film. What's more is that the Deadpool film will look to the character and ignore some of the key events that occurred to him in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, including two of the tacked on endings post credits.
If you hadn't seen the ending of Wolverine you might want to read away now and not follow the source article in The Hollywood Reporter, for they are intent on blowing the surprise ending and the ending of Wolverine for one character at least, Deadpool.
Okay, looking away? Oh and let me point out that's Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and Screenwriting Magazine that have all spoiled or revealed plot details of films recently, not fan sites, not blogs, not forums, but official magazines and news sources.
So, Deadpool. The Article goes onto say that despite Deadpool's disfigurement in the film, he's looking to be all clean cut and handsome for the spin off, and even though he appears dead during the film, one of the post credit sequence shows him alive but with his mouth sewn shut and given new and improved superpowers, again this will be reversed for his film.
Well looks like a lot of liberties with the story already told on film, and it really makes you wonder why they bothered putting those sequences on the end of the film in the first place.
Still, they are looking for writers for the project just now, so there's a lot that could happen between now and a completed film. Right now all this is conjecture, hope, and the executives talking about what they think we want to hear, who know, they may be right.
