So by now you’ve seen the trailer. And the red band trailer. And chances are- you were into it.

And chances are, you didn’t recognize anybody in it aside from Deadpool and Colossus. Why would they do this? Probably so they can kill characters off that don’t have their own franchise and Deadpool kills a lot of people.

So here’s a quick guide to D-Pooly, his history, allies, and enemies. Sure you could go to Wikipedia, Comic Vine, Marvel Database, or a thousand other sites. But you’re already here, you might as well stay. Continue reading

MBTI: Deadpool- ENTP

“Frankly, if I’d known Deadpool was such a creep when I agreed to write the mini-series, I wouldn’t have done it. Someone who hasn’t paid for their crimes presents a problem for me.”

-Mark Waid, Deadpool writer, 1994.

One of Marvel’s most popular characters in the past several years, there’s always a bit of debate about his type; Sensing over Intuition? Feeling over Thinking? This debate will finally be put to rest! Not really, but you know what I mean, right? I’m laying out my argument and any detractors may do just that at will. Detract away!

Deadpool refuses to be in the same category as either the goody-two-shoes hero nor the cold-hearted, murderous villain. His days of “mercenarying” are ever present yet he usually ends up trying to do the right thing if he has to make a moral decision at all, fitting an ENTP trait of amorality with shades of positivity.

Deadpool: A Typical Tuesday

Posted in Whatever with tags , , on 06/26/2012 by McCutcheon

Thanks to whoever tipped off Topless Robot, I was able to check out the video you see above you; aka A Little Much but the Closest Thing We’ll Ever Get to a Deadpool Movie, or at Least Should. I think they went with theirs because it’s shorter. Because of my article the other day, it didn’t feel right not posting this. The guy who plays Deadpool even appears to be in shape, as an extra bonus. The only thing we’re missing is the “rocks in gasoline” voice.

5 Properties that Should NEVER be Movies

Posted in Top 5 Lists with tags , , , , , , , , , , on 06/19/2012 by McCutcheon

Let’s be honest. Unless the world ends sometime very, very soon, your favorite ‘whatever’ will be made into a movie. Book, show, video game, whatever. It will be made into a movie even if it’s not called by it’s own name. No Smallville movie, no, but Superman has seen his share of screen time. No Law & Order but c’mon- there’s a million crime/thrillers already. Alan Moore deemed Watchmen (2009) unfilmable, but bam, we’ve had it for three years now.

Based on the fact that comic book movies aren’t going away and there are a hundred thousand (the exact number) other propeties to be mined, rest assured, what you love will eventually be molested by Hollywood’s grubby little fingers. Or made love to, it’s a split decision. I don’t want to act as though Hollywood does nothing justice. Dark Knight of course is the greatest example, while plenty of others get their due.

Could anyone have done Sherlock Holmes (2008) the way Guy Ritchie delivered it? Could anyone have gotten ahold of Daredevil (2003) and made it as awesome as Ben Affleck did? That last sentence was a terrible joke and I’m sorry I typed it, but in all honesty, Daredevil is part of the reason I’m writing this. Such a great character with basic, creative plots, and we get a cross eyed Ben Affleck making kissy-face with his future wife.

This was supposed to be my favorite character brought to life, using his crazy senses, flipping off buildings and throwing rapists through glass windows in bars, not picking out his next wife.

But for better or worse, the next properties mentioned ultimately remain untouched. Mostly. I bring them to light not to say that Hollywood couldn’t make them in one way or another- but that they just shouldn’t. Continue reading
