John Wick’s director David Leitch has been confirmed for the next Deadpool movie
We can call it Deadpool’s Golden era, because unlike other Marvel characters his popularity started only in the recent years. He is spreading faster than a gossip between high school girls, but most importantly he’s making an impact on the silver screen.
The first time we saw Deadpool was in “X-men Origins: Wolverine”, and honest to god that movie was just horrible and it did not do any good for our lovable “Merc with a mouth”. Ryan Reynolds actually did a great job of bringing this character’s personality to life, but his super-powered version was completely inaccurate.
Now some facts about Deadpool:
The character’s origin has been known to be vague and subject to change, and within the narrative he is unable to remember his personal history due to his unstable mental condition. There have been other confusing stories about his background—at one point the Loki claimed to be his father. Deadpool himself joked that whether he is actually Wade Wilson depends on which the writer or the reader prefers. He is aware that he is a fictional comic book character. He commonly breaks the fourth wall and it is mostly used for humorous conversations either with himself or the audience. He often has conversations with his two internal monologues, which are shown as caption boxes in his panels.
His primary super power is an accelerated healing factor, this enables him to regenerate any damaged tissue at a superhuman rate, as well as making him immune to any disease. His healing factor is strong enough that he has survived complete incineration and decapitation more than once. He is also a highly trained assassin, master in multiple martial arts, and an expert swordsman and marksman. At some point he became one of the most dangerous characters in the Marvel universe as he acquired a very specific set of weapons that help him kill every super hero and super villain in the entire Marvel universe; and yes, Wolverine and Hulk included.
Luckily everyone knew that the friendly neighborhood pool guy is just so awesome that he needs his own movie. Thus fans’ dream came true. The 2016 movie managed to accurately present this character and it took the world by a storm. One could bravely say this was the movie of the year making up to $780 million. I myself am a hardcore Deapool fan, so I have a perfectly good reason to freak out over this.
Now, The Hollywood Reporter confirms that John Wick‘s David Leitch will helm Deadpool 2. As previously reported, though, plans for Deadpool 3 are already in the works and the trade confirms that a hunt is underway for a different Deadpool director there.
While Deadpool 2 is said to introduce Cable and Domino (at least), recent reports suggest that Deadpool 3 will flesh out a full X-Force team.
