Ending was shit
>he gets the girl in the end Since when is Deadpool allowed to win?
I was fully expecting Vanessa to do the whole TJ Miller rif he did when he first saw Wade with his fucked up face. Then after like 3 back and forth ugly jokes she would say the sit on his face line.
Isn't it a plot point that they're breaking up, though?
Shiklah's sleeping with other people and bad mouthing Deadpool because he's spending time with the Avengers, and there was that Deadpool 2099 thing where they had a bad falling out.
Implying that wasn't obvious from the beginning.
It was shit because it goes against his character to not only be happy but to randomly and seemingly only because the movie has to end, rid himself of all self doubt. When she asked Wade to take off the mask I thought it was going to be like the ending of Spider-Man and he can't bring himself to do it so he walks away in shame and sadness. That may not have been the best ending either but its just what I thought would happen. The ending was so anti Deadpool I couldn't believe my eyes as it was happening.
Little things like this and Blind Al being a totally happy and non abusive, consensual relationship all come together to give the feeling of a dumbed down and less emotional Deadpool than what I was expecting after reading Joe Kelly's run from when it was posted on /co/ and everyone saying it was like that. The movie was still good but these things really disappointed me. Deadpool is NOT a hero. They try to talk about this in the movie but really his only crime is being too violent about what he is doing. He is completely selfless and heroic fighting a clear cut villain in this movie instead of being a true psychopath anti hero with emotional problems beyond missing his girlfriend. So he actually was a hero, I don't see how he wasn't. I feel like they tried to incorporate that as a theme because it is so prevalent in Deadpool comics but it's like they don't understand why it was in the first place. It would have worked maybe if at the pizza scene he was an actual assassin but it turns out he was kinda a hero there too.
Maybe they wanted a happy ending because they thought it would be their only chance with a movie but days before the launch I heard a sequel was already confirmed and based on this ending I dont see where the story could go or why he would even continue to be Deadpool whereas in the Joe Kelly story he begins to see the mask as his true face and can't bear anyone to see his skin which is why his main emotional support is a blind woman.
Movie disappointed me when Weasel and Blind Al met.That's a crazy moment in the comic. They have it there when they don't even need to.
But that will only serve to make Deadpool more heroic.
This is a brightly-colored superhero action comedy marketed to the moviegoing masses. I don't know what else you could have expected. It's only subversive when it doesn't matter. Every important plot point is played by the book.
How does that work anyway?
Marvel Death is a very derivative character taken from folklore, couldn't they have their own version of the grim reaper without infringing?
Same way they could probably have Hercules, just not the Marvel version.
mfw didn't hit me Bob was actually in the movie until I got home from watching it
>We actually got a Deadpool movie where it was Deadpool acting like Deadpool while looking like Deadpool and murdering people like Deadpool, and cutting off body parts like Deadpool while talking to characters that Deadpool would actually talk to like Hydra Bob, confirming that this is in fact Deadpool on the screen right now
It probably has to do with storyline.
Like how Quicksilver in AoU couldn't be a mutant, just a guy who is mutated.
Death could have theoretically been in the movie, but couldn't act in a way similar to her role in Deadpool
Thats true but he wants vengeance for something entirely reasonable, and the guy was torturing who knows how many other innocent cancer ridden people including the guy Wade befriended while he was there. I think if it was just him who was being tortured he wouldn't of been nearly as angry. But the point is they included stuff like that specifically so the audience would know Wade is in the right. And like I said with the pizza delivery guy, presumably he did a lot more stuff like that which he specified only to people who deserve it. Again, purposefully saying he isn't a bad guy.
Here is the thing, Deadpool suffered a LOT in this movie, but I am glad it ended the way it did. If it had ended with her dead or him just walking away it would have undermined the whole premise of the film, that you can be a good guy who isn't a "good guy" and still have a good life. Deadpool needed a win to highlight how shitty his life was before.
Also Deadpool doesn't always end on sad notes, usually it ends with a happy note or a return to the status quo. It's only a few comics like the one with the North Korean knockoff Avengers that have a really sad ending. Most of the feels happen during the comic and the rest of the comic had Deadpool reacting to whatever happened. We get to see his thought process and get a weird alloy of insane, humorous commentary and real, dark moments that flow into one another because his brain doesn't work exactly the same as a normal one.
Besides Deadpool gets kicked enough in the comics. The writers seem to enjoy seeing just how dark they can get and how far they can push before they have to pull back. Its like some kind of weird freaky japanese snuff club.
That is what Deadpool is though, he is a nice guy with a good heart. He just takes random jobs that sometimes mean people die. You can be nice and care while also being bloodthirsty, savage, and enjoy killing people.
Hell Dr. Doom cares about his people and the world. He freakin breaks his second in command's neck for failing to keep Latveria safe, but then takes random children from the town on tours of the country to help them grow with a greater understanding of all that Doom does for them.
but if you read what you originally responded to you would know I disagree after reading comics that back up my claims. He is a mean spirited psychopath who desperately wants to improve. Thats the point. He wants to be good but cant, and that only works when he isn't to begin with. I dont see how you can read the same comics I did and say what you're saying when it's just factually untrue.
I've never read Deadpool, all I know is Waypool is shit. I enjoyed the movie while acknowledging I'm not savvy on the character, enjoying it for just what it was. But I'd like to read some now. What's a good run to start with? Any recommendations after that?
I think you're confused and I'm not the other guy. This movie is a riff on Kellypool which predates the modern run by decades.
They wrote the story more tightly closed because they weren't sure how the movie is going to perform but now that it already made its money back in one day, they'll take a different approach with the sequel, but it isn't anywhere near Poshen/Dugg stuff that tends to end on a negative note.
Deadpool does have tragedy but it is very different from modern tragedy and miasma to what was going on when he originally started out being a stalker to siryn and being raped and all the other messed up shit like T-Ray/His wife etc.
The events are tragic and dark but tonally completely different from modern stuff like what was happening when he went split personalities and became buddhistpool and was taking care of evan and his daughter.
I'm not, if I have to read him being in a relationship, at least I want him to get something out of it, even if he fucks up. Or the woman dies or whatever. I knew nothing would come of shiklah
siryn was a forbidden infatuation/romance, all his other women have some tinge that got something out of the story.
>you will never have a relationship like Wade and Vanessa's
At least it was instantaneous, and most importantly it was not his fault.
That counts as a win for Wade. Get to die, painlessly, next to the people you love, and it not having been because of you, but just an unstoppable editorial decision.
Wasn't Copycat in X-Force at one point? Ican see her getting her powers in the sequel and then moving on to the X-Force movie. I liked her in the movie, wuld be a shame to kill her off just for the tragedy factor.
