5 Reasons the Deadpool Video Game Will Be Epic

From the PlanetPlaystation.com feature top 5 list:

"Marvel’s latest big announcement in the world of videogames is that the beloved yet largely unloved Deadpool will be getting his own game published by Activision and developed by High Moon Studios. A lot of people may not be incredibly familiar with Deadpool but he’s already made a few gaming appearances. X-Men Legends 2, both Marvel Ultimate Alliance games, Marvel vs Capcom 3, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, and a few others. In all honesty we can just forget any of his involvement with the Wolverine game or movie." (Deadpool, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Cannot wait for this, always been one of my favorite Marvel characters (he needs his own movie, done right).... nice list!
Patriots_Pride  +   1124d ago
Yes he does need his own movie but the problem is finding an actor that would fit his personalty.

I dont Hollywood has someone that can feet his role.

I think they were gonna have an adaption with Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool but idk cause i heard Ryan was doing Highlander now.
gaden_malak  +   1123d ago
Reynolds was linked to it because he played him in the Wolverine movie but that was a few years ago.

I think the movie has (unfortunately) been shelved.

If it's anything like the Wolverine: Origins game then I have high hopes, but we'll have to wait and see...
UltimaEnder  +   1124d ago

Most people who like Deadpool read comics. You can tell when someone has actually read the comics because otherwise they think that Deadpool is like he was is X-Men Origins. I love Deadpool comics though and he's funny as shit in X-Force.

@ ChocolateGiddyUp

Well played.

DarrenLambert  +   1123d ago
God, what does it matter? Do you think you're special because you know this information? He's a great character and he's funny and the game looks pretty epic.

@avengers1978
What does knowing specific information and you acting like a hipster ass**** have anything to do with the quality of the game???

So people aren't allowed to enjoy Deadpool unless they meet your criteria?

A touch elitist don't you think?
Human Analog  +   1123d ago
So what if people have never heard of him? I for one knew of him, but never read any Deadpool. I have always been more of a graphic novel reader instead of superhero stuff. I am not knocking it (that would be hypocritical). But I'll tell you what. After seeing the trailer for the game, and seeing how funny he is, I looked up some stiff on youtube. I was sold, and just today picked up Deadpool: origin comic, and Deadpool Merc with a mouth (the animation really spoke to me). I am looking forward to enjoying them. Even though I have only just discovered it. It is because of people like me who are new to the bandwagon, that there will be even more Deadpool stuff for us all to read. Stop being so elitist.
rpd123  +   1122d ago
It's good that the game is drawing in more fans. You should try out the ongoing series,too, see if you like it. And he's really funny in Uncanny X-Force, but that's got more people in it, so it might not be your thing.

Guys dont overhype it, dont forget activision is behind this they havent made a single good license game they are in it for the quick buck and wont put any effort in it.
Anderson8  +   1124d ago
spiderman 2 was decent.. i dont have high hopes for this game tho so hopefully i'll be pleasantly surprised when it drops
Hoje0308  +   1123d ago
They haven't made any because they're the publisher, not the developer. High Moon made War for Cybertron, and for that, they deserve the benefit of the doubt.
GTRrocker666  +   1124d ago
Its activision everyone.
M1am1U  +   1124d ago
Activision is just publishing the game, so hopefully High Moon Studios will be able to develop a good game. Their track record is pretty decent so far, so I think there's hope.
M1am1U  +   1124d ago
Also...because it's Deadpool.
MeatAbstract  +   1124d ago
I've never read any Deadpool comics and I'm not familiar with the character. Just don't get hyped up and keep your mind open to it because if you get yourself worked up you'll inevitably be let down.

I can't remember the last game I was REALLY hyped for that met my expectations.
theWB27  +   1123d ago
With all the great games out you should probably lower your expectations then. Seems your wanting experiences gaming can't deliver yet.
hellzsupernova  +   1124d ago
a deadpool fps? thanks activision lol
Roccetarius  +   1124d ago
I have a feeling the Deadpool game is going to suck. Some of the things he said when revealed are just plain wrong for him.
Moncole  +   1124d ago
Daniel Way is writing it :(
RXL  +   1123d ago
the Comedy has to be on point

the comic just came back with a better team writing for it..

right before it went away it was getting pretty bad...but they revitalized the humor/jokes/character..

that being said..the trailer didn't give me ANY hope =\

but for a movie they need some fresh blood...new talent..

altho i can see that kid that played Kick Ass in the role..

get a little beefier...and he's got the sarcastic tone/dumbed down wit..

the thing with deadpool is..it looks like chaos..and like he has no idea what he's doing AT ALL...but there's a method to his madness ..

he's the original Jack Sparrow...on crack.
Human Analog  +   1123d ago
I think Hollywood would need to find a no-name actor to play him. That will establish Deadpool as a standalone. But they have to get it just right.
