‘Deadpool’ Is Best Comic Book Film? Movie Sequel In The Works


“The Merc With a Mouth” created curiosity among comic book readers and film enthusiasts because of its out-of-the-ordinary package as a superhero. He was once a supporting character from one of the “X-Men” movies, but now, “Deadpool” lands his own film dubbed as the best comic book movie ever.

The idea came from Forbes, which wrote that the much-awaited motion picture contains a “brilliant and orchestrated humour” that sets it apart from ordinary and predictable superhero movies. The film that stars Ryan Reynolds “mocks everything wrong with comic book films.”

Apart from that, the site noted that “Deadpool” went against the flow, away from what a superhero is supposed to be. His sarcastic humour that goes along with bloody, action- packed and chaotic fighting scenes overcame the limit of a generic warrior film.

Additionally, Reynolds’ two extremist side characters – the optimistic Colossus, played by Stefan Kapicic, and mega-pessimistic Negasonic Teenage Warhead, played by Brianna Hildebrand, add spice to the highly anticipated film because of their interesting traits.

Furthermore, iO9 stated that “Deadpool” conquered all media because of how it has been created by two talented artists, Fabien Nicieza and Rob Liefeld.

“Unapologetically, absent me there is no Deadpool. Period,” said Rob Liefeld. “I am the name, the costume, the look, the origin and the attitude. Great one-liners are the result of other writers. But there’s no Deadpool at all in existence without me.”

Meanwhile, Nicieza said their collaborative work created a character that is deeply remarkable. In a sense, “Deadpool” will not be “Deadpool” if his writing skills were not combined with Liefield’s character design.

Notably, the witty hero was first introduced in 1991s “New Mutants #98” where the idea of the “Merc With a Mouth” was born.

That being said, fans can expect the motion picture to be truly against the usual superhero stuff that we had for the past years.

Meanwhile, because of its expected success, a sequel has been rumoured to be currently taking place. As The Hollywood Reporter wrote, film writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are allegedly ready for a follow-up.

“Deadpool” will be out in theaters on Feb. 12.
