Ok before anyone else laments Disney getting the X-Men, I just want to remind everyone that it hasn’t been all Logans and Deadpools. Out of the 10 X-Men related films we have gotten so far 2 have been masterpiece 3 where pretty good and the rest ranged from mediocre to Hot garbage. Also does anyone remember that Fox didn’t want to do Deadpool for the longest time and really dragged there feet on that project and only made it because of Fan outcry and Ryan Renolds constant Pushing for the movie
I can’t watch the first Deadpool movie anymore without thinking about those sexual misconduct & battery allegations against T.J. Miller. Ryan Reynolds has the power to do something about this PR nightmare, but then again, he’s more than willing to work with Josh Brolin, a known domestic abuser. Definitely not watching the second movie…
When I heard that Disney was going to give Deadpool his own little movie universe outside of the MCU I was kinda relieved because I think there is one little writing problem when it comes to Deadpool. To me Deadpool as a character works best best in either his own books or in team books that focus on him like X-fource, Deadpool corp, Deadpool VS Hawkeye, or Spider-man/Deadpool where his fourth wall breaking antics are allowed to go wild. Where I don’t think Deadpool works is in event books where he is relegated to the back, his fourth wall breaks are either weakend or clashing with the plot when playing second fiddle to a grander story, basically you need to either go all in on the fourth wall breaks or not at all in order for the story to work, and so yeah I don’t think Deadpool would work in an Avengers film, so it might be best if has his own little universe where he can F@*& around.
