5 Comic Book Characters That Deserve A Movie
1 of 5 Deadpool
Deadpool at this moment has a huge fan base, and there is no excuse why his film hasn’t been made yet.
- His character was introduced in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
- His ongoing comic book series has been a regular sellout for Marvel for several years now.
- His Character recently had his own video game released.
- Deadpool shows up in practically all of Marvel's animated shows.
So, why haven't they managed to get a Deadpool film in theaters?
According to Ryan Reynolds recently told Total Film, “That movie is alive and kicking, and then it’s dead as a doornail. Then it’s alive and kicking and then it’s dead… it’s like the worst relationship I’ve ever had!”
He went onto say that Deadpool isn’t quite as commercial as studio heads would prefer. “It’s a property that is excessively popular and successful, just as a comic property. So you certainly don’t want to mess that up. And if you’re a studio you certainly don’t want to be put something out there that you can’t get back.”
