Hugh Jackman Wants WOLVERINE To Square Off With DEADPOOL Again To Get It Right
As most remember, even though they wish they could forget, X-Men Origins: Wolverine happened. The film gave us a look at exactly how Logan came to be The Wolverine, and it has some faults. One of the faults that most fans called foul on was the use of Deadpool in the movie. Oh sure before he was “Deadpool” and he was just Wade Wilson he was fine, but during the ultimate final battle when Deadpool had his mouth sewn over and every power imaginable fans around the world collectively facepalmed.
Hugh Jackman would like to rectify how the movie handled Deadpool by having his Wolverine square off with him one more time. “We sort of took a pretty strong choice on Deadpool, where we kind of stitched him up,” he said. “And I love the character of Deadpool and I think that the sort of badass, fast-talking, funny, annoying Deadpool vs Wolverine would still be cool. We’ve sort of done it, but I think we could have done that much better.”
As of right now, there are a multitude of people working tirelessly to get a Deadpool movie done. Ryan Reynolds, who played the character in Origins, has been attached to the project for years now with no movement. Long time X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner and Deapool creator Rob Leifield have also worked tirelessly trying to convince the higher-ups at Fox that the movie could work to no avail yet.
Oh all the solo X-Men movies that could happen, Deadpool would be the one I want to see the most. There is a possibility of new ground to be broken for the comic book movie genre and Fox could be innovators leading the charge. They could take the route of The Wolverine and do a wide release of Deadpool PG-13 and include the R rated version on the home release.
