Which Wolverine Spin-Offs Would You Want to See, If Any?
by Alex Billington
May 4, 2009
Pirating be damned, X-Men Origins: Wolverine made $85.1 million at the box office this weekend. Of course, I'll argue that it could have made a lot more, but that's a story for another day. While perusing around the web looking for some news today, I came across this article on io9 that featured quotes from an interview IESB did last week with producer Lauren Shuler Donner. She talked a bit about some of the potential spin-offs and how far along they are in development. Everything hinges on the success of Wolverine, but with that kind of solid opening, I'd say it's likely we'll see something get a greenlight.
So if they move forward with another Marvel movie, what would you want to see? There are really four options for Fox after Wolverine. First off, the sequel, Wolverine 2, which Hugh Jackman has said might see Logan venturing to Japan in that storyline. Secondly, there's the obvious Deadpool spin-off, which has been buzzed about because the character is a fan favorite. Third, there's a possibility of continuing on with the young mutants in X-Men: First Class, which already has a script and is moving forward. And lastly, while this isn't a spin-off, there's still a chance that X-Men Origins: Magneto could still get made.
To get into some of these spin-off ideas a bit further, I have to say, that the scene in the first 15 minutes showing Wade Wilson aka Deadpool (played by Ryan Reynolds) fighting off the henchman in the office building with his swords was awesome. If they could make a whole movie with that kind of action, I'd be all for it. I understand that this is why people are excited for a Deadpool movie. Even though they "screwed him up" at the end, I'm sure they'd make sure he gets back to that kind of badass sword fighting action. So anyway, I know I'm at least in for a Deadpool spin-off. But what about you? What do you want to see?
not if Fox has anything to do with it

Gambit... Taylor Kitsch was freaking awesome!!
Kenny on May 4, 2009
I'd like to see a Deadpool movie, but I wasn't a fan of Reynolds performance. I wanted to see a lot more energy from him in the dialogue scenes. Even though he's a lesser known character, Bishop's story would make an unbelievably epic movie. You'd have a good cross over with Gambit and Cable if it were made.

i'd like to see gambit too and deadpool and this is random but nightcrawler because he's my favorite but thats just me. as long as the director and story lines are good,im all for it. i had nothing against wolverine except that it could have been alot better and im glad deadpool could have a spin-off.
erik on May 4, 2009
Deadpool, if they do it right. If they keep that weapon XI bullshit, then forget it. Aside from him, i don't see any other spin offs being worth the trouble off a stand alone movie, just make another X Men.
Darunia on May 4, 2009
I 2nd Gambit...
Tony on May 4, 2009
Hm, a spinoff off an spinoff? I'd rather see Excalibur be made. If I recall correctly, and I might not since it's been a decade since Ive read Excalibur, but issnt Nightcrawler a part of Excalibur(or was) ? Or did he, like all marvel toons, just "show up" at times? I cant say I know this Deadpool much, so not really hoping for a spin-spinoff with him. And there's always X-Factor....and the sequal to X-Factor could time in with the X-men(part 4 or 5)when all shit hits the fan with the Inferno storyline, dark stuff there. But first we need to see the X-men disolve(room for 2-3 spinoffs here, Storm for one) and get hunted all across the world. Excalibur X-Factor X-Force
David Banner on May 4, 2009
Deadpool, Deadpool, and oh yeah, Deadpool.

I'd definitely pay to see all four of those (I'm a sucker for super hero movies), but, if I had to choose one, it would without a doubt be Deadpool. Like many others out there Deadpool has been my favorite character for a long time. Seeing him on the big screen was a dream come true. They did tweak him a bit much at the end, but it's nothing they can't fix. I'm all in for a sequel.
Garrett on May 4, 2009
Deadpool VS Gambit. Rated R.
WEAPON X on May 4, 2009
For sure give me a Deadpool and not the crappy Deadpool from the Wolverine movie, the real Deadpool...
Trodge on May 4, 2009
I would enjoy a Gambit spin-off and Magneto the most. Wolverine 2 would be pretty cool. I just hope that the movies would improve on what preceded them, because without that, another money pumping franchise would be created...icky...
Tom V on May 4, 2009
I personally got sick of Wolverine two movies ago. I just always assumed that based on CGI he is probably the easiest character to pull off hence his major presence in all four films(Well, three plus his own movie). Sorry fanboys, that is how I feel. Its the same reason I figure Heroes always has Sylar use the same dumb power. Gambit is my personal fave but I think this movie has all but destroyed any normal time line in the X-men movie universe. Gambit by X-3 would of had to been in his 40's-50's, well somewhere older than Beast I would guess. Now that I am done ranting, I would love for a Gambit or Deadpool movie, both solid characters and great potential. Gambit doing something with the Thieves Guild or Morlocks would be great.
Tom on May 4, 2009
Wade Wilson Gambit Bradly (Could be something). Agent Zero (could be cool) Those four as long as fox isn't involved.
xerxex on May 4, 2009
Liked wolverine. My only gripe is that deadpool is Hannibal king with Swords based on Reynold's portrayal. If they move fwd with a sequel, (My opinion) is that they gotta focus on Stryker's relationship with Logan to solidify his cockiness about it in X2. They may also wanna hint at what made Sabertooth so Feral. Victor was a badass though.
Mr j Money on May 4, 2009
you didn't mention Gambit or the fact Donner mentioned she is might try to bring back Bryan Singer to direct either Gambit or Deadpool....
Christopher M on May 4, 2009
WOLVERINE 2 OF COURSE!!!!!!!! I LOVED X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE!!!!!!!!!
XD on May 4, 2009
Gambit This movie made twice as much as it should have.
JL on May 4, 2009
Gambit for sure. Other than Sabertooth and Wolverine, he was the most interesting character on the screen and he wasn't even there for very long. Wade Wilson wasn't on screen for very long, but didn't like him near as much (especially since Deadpool had his head hacked off at the end) however because there is money for those...I'm sure more than one of the characters will receive their own movie.
one on May 4, 2009
I don't understand why cant they just do x men 4 the problems in x3 can easily be fixed if a director and screen writer really look at x men 3 first of all lets take a look. 1)Cyclops Death - Do we see him die?Nope.do we see his body?Nope. -For all we know Jean could of put him in a telekinetic coma/ or cocoon and once she died he broke free of it he could be wandering with no glasses.Could be captured or welcomed in by the brotherhood can say the x men didn't even bother to look for him. They can even say that Logan killed the love of his life Jean Grey.It would be a interesting concept for the character of cyclops and Wolverine. 2)Xavier's Death - it is explained in the film in end credit scene from X3 3)Mutants loosing powers - Magneto/Rogue/Mystique- Magneto got his powers slowly by end of X Men 3 which shows the cure was not solid proof.So who is to say Mystique wont go her blue scale like skin back and get her powers back.Also who is to say Rogue wont go back to being untouchable to all people around her. And Jean can come back in my opinion. Also with the failure of the cure it will increase the violence and tension between mutants an humans.Showing how far the humans will go to destroy the mutant race and how far the humans will go. they can even bring in the idea from the Ultimate series where the government creates The Sentinels to track down and destroy and or contain all mutants. just an idea ?
nelson on May 4, 2009
Could the guy at the end, Weapon XI be something other than Wade Wilson, like the cloned him and put all the mutant powers into his and the real Wade Wilson is somewhere else? If not then I don't want him coming back, because hes screwed up and hes got all these powers that would be boring to see him fight people with because it would be all disjointed etc, plus the are control his brain and his mouth is sewn shut which is his best asset, anyway I don't want a Weapon XI movie. I would like to see a Gambit movie IF the guy can pull of da CaJON accent no? See I can type it why cant he speak it? Its easy, just watch like Little Chenier and you can talk it all day. I would like to see Wolverine: Japan, who wouldn't, it would be he best bet for FOX and fans I think.

I was actually excited about a possible Magneto spin-off, but after seeing how FOX butchered Wolverine's origin story movie, than I really don't want to see them do another one. I'd love to see a Deadpool film done RIGHT. Ryan Reynolds was amazing as Wade Wilson, and he seems to really like the character. I know it's not possible for this to happen, but these movies should really only get made by people who actually have more than just a passing interest in the characters or story involved. IF, and this is a big if, FOX gave Reynolds some serious creative input on how Deadpool is done, than it could work very well. I think FOX really wants to do it, so there is a small chance it could happen. You have to think that at some point, someone will realize that Tom Rothman's movies suck, and hopefully they'll fire him. Or at the very least, they'll see that they are making bad movies and hopefully realize that if they ever hope to compete with Sony and the new kid on the block in Marvel, they'll have to change something. I don't expect anything from FOX to be any good until Rothman is gone, but I'll still have my fingers crossed that eventually I'll get to see the true Deadpool on the big screen, breaking the 4th wall and being a wise ass while killing a bunch of punks. Hell yeah!
Jon Stephens on May 4, 2009
Wolverine was good fun but so very very lacking, the reason they make movies about him is that he IS a fan favorite so get over it. But he is a very dark character and that bumbling movie was more like a Jim Carey movie, to really do him justice it has to be darker and more gritty. (as a side note has anyone seen the game?) I feel the movie went overboard on mutants, so much of it was totally uncalled for, as mentioned before Gambit didn't pull off the accent but if he was a little messier would have looked the part perfectly. Special effects were hideous, the claws were laughably bad and at times I wondered if I was watching The Asylums "Wolverine Man", not that they made one but there is a Transmorphers and The Terminators. SPOILER!!! I like deadpool and I believe one of the secret endings shows that weapon XI was a clone. They could totally do something with him, and Reynolds was great as wade, I just think the writers sucked knob. Basically I don't think we're going to see any of the Xmen movies/spin offs being any good until they make their way home back to Marvel Studios instead of at Fox who are a complete joke.
Daniel Sharp on May 4, 2009
Colossus. Always been a favorite of mine. Great character, even has his on rival in Omega-Red.
benlomand on May 4, 2009
-Peter- on May 4, 2009
About them secret endings, did anyone see one different from the one where Logan is boozin' it up in Japan. Also, I think something cooler could've been done. It wasn't half as good as the secret Iron Man scene. It just seemed a bit too subtle. I hope weapon XI was a clone. I also hope there was another one. I kinda wish that Zack Snyder would've got his way with this movie and made it an insane gore filled, man-animal bloodbath. I want more Sabertooth too. I thought Ryan Reynolds was pretty awesome as Deadpool. Fox are douchebags. Tom Rothman is uber-douchebag. That is all.
Morgan Messersmith on May 4, 2009
Magneto all the way.
Itri on May 4, 2009
For those who havent seen it a secret ending has Deadpool's body pulling itself towards the head and grabbing and I'm pretty sure the eyes opened. Its hard to tell the quality I saw was pretty shitty will have to wait until the DVD comes out . But so ya they can Deadpool now .Espcially since when they were putting Deadpool together Stryker rushed him and he was warned that DP wasn't ready . Meaning the powers wouldnt hold . So no more optic blast's.

Three Words: X-Men Origins: Juggernaut
Greedo the Rodian on May 4, 2009
wow, so im guessing that no one stayed and watched the scene after the credits where wade wilson was STILL ALIVE!!!!!!! god you kids are the real life incarnation of movie poop shoot .com all you do is complain about it wasnt anything like the comic, or it was terrible or screw fox but you all just paid the bils for these people. cant a comic movie be made outside the comic continuum? doesnt anyone else realize that the comics themselves are so contidictory that it almost makes them difficult to read or follow so why would the movie/sequels any different. im done reading anything ever posted by the people in any movvie forum thanks to the a majority of you and your inablity to think original thoughts or analyze things in any intelligent manner.
flipdwun on May 4, 2009
pretty much marvel studios should be in charge of all there comics becoming films and they would probably be done right because they actually care about what they would produce for the most part. but i don't when that will happen.
erik on May 4, 2009
None, if Fox has their hands in it and if it's going to be quality like Wolverine. That first Wade Wilson fight scene was LAMO! I don't get what all the praise is about, I've seen way better sword/fight scenes than that, Awesome??? Come on.... The fan in me wants a spin off, but the better half of me says No..... but judging by the $$$, I'm sure it's gonna happen.
Sho' nuff on May 4, 2009
How about an Avengers vs. X-Men movie in 2016 (but not adults, as babies)
Greedo the Rodian on May 4, 2009
Deadpool! Guys if you remember the part of the dialogue right before the big fight when Striker tells the doctor, "activate Weapon XI" the doctor clearly says, "But sir, the binding process is not complete" meaning that the Deadpool's mutant powers are not fully finished. Which as you can imagine perhaps all of Wolverine's DNA isn't complete, giving him a cancerous skin disease, There for he dawns the mask. Hence the Deadpool ending at the end of the credits.
The_Phantom on May 4, 2009
Mr J Money Actually Ryan Reynolds was Hannibal King acting like Deadpool, that's why he's the perfect DP that's how Pool is in the comics running at the mouth hence 'Merc with a Mouth' being his tag. Hannibal King from the comics is nothing like the version in Blade 3
PimpSlapStick on May 4, 2009
Deadpool definately, but I fear for that character and any movies about him if FOX is involved. They couldn't even get the basics straight aside from Reynolds casting there is no silver lining.
PimpSlapStick on May 4, 2009
I, much like many, would like Gambit and Deadpool movies. But also a Storm movie. But after this, although there are some really great scenes, I'm not sure they'd pull off any of them without upsetting more than pleasing fans with the end results. Storm would be the only one with a clean slate, because they never give her any real story in the previous movies, so they could work hard to just cover her story well. But then some things could get heavy in the CGI for her, like Shadow King, who is a component to the development of the X-Men. At times Wolverine felt low budget, I'd hate to watch a Storm film get that treatment. Gambit and Deadpool made up some of my favorite parts of the Wolverine movie. Although Gambit is my favorite and I'd slightly prefer seeing more of him than Deadpool, Deadpool played by Reynolds made a blooming fan out of me. But neither should be made without the needed content and care. I know they would only release Gambit as PG-13 (young girl fans and all). Deadpool, real Deadpool should not even be made unless it's R.
SapphireD on May 4, 2009
Gambit was awful in the film -Doesn't look like him -doesn't have the eyes -No cajun accent -jumps 60 feet in air with horrible CGI? -is just some cocky southern kid -Isn't cool and suave like gambit
Jim on May 4, 2009
@ 43, my thoughts exactly
terces7 on May 4, 2009
I would like to see a Deadpool or a Gambit movie but without the butchering of the story lines. I don't want a another wolverine that's for sure.
Gavin on May 4, 2009
On second thought I would love to see a Magneto/Charles Xavier movie that would be nice to see that story line on the big screen. Did anyone else notice that Quicksilver was in one of the cages in the movie?
Gavin on May 4, 2009
billy on May 4, 2009
I'm compelled to re-read Frank Miller's Wolverine stories now that I saw that ending. I think it'd be nice if he had the patch, and truly adopted a different personality while in Japan or 'Madripoor' as it was called in the '90's comics. It seems like Reynolds has a good feel for the character, I just wonder if Deadpool himself has any sort of emotional center as a character, worthy of carrying a movie all on his own. I mean, he was created Rob Leifeld, after all, wasn't he? He CAN"T have been that interesting aside from the bloodshed and wisecracks. Sure, we all love him - but what is his broader appeal? In an interview Reynolds said something interesting - that I don't think has been explored in the comics much - that Deadpool is sort of "Commando Meets Phantom of the Opera". THAT could be interesting.
Django on May 4, 2009
Deadpool, hands down. Wolverine actually made me say a sentence I never thought I would dare to utter: I actually would have liked to see more of Ryan Reynolds. Here's how a Deadpool movie would go: they break the fourth wall 5 minutes in, and then spend the remaining 85 minutes repeatedly hacking the wall down with katanas.
Andrew on May 4, 2009
I dunno. I liked both Deadpool and, to a lesser extent, Gambit in this film. But if they would be as bad as this film, then it would be a waste.
Ajax on May 4, 2009
I haven't even seen it yet, but I gotta say Wolverine in Japan. My first introduction to the character was Frank Miller's four issue mini-series about him taking on his japanese girlfriend's yakuza father. Besides, who doesn't want to see Wolvie vs. an entire clan of ninjas? 🙂
jasonmd2020 on May 4, 2009
I think a Gambit movie, I actually liked the guy Bolt too, but I doubt a guy who could control lightbulbs would satisfy the jizzbombers. That Deadpool thing at the end was crap. In the film I did like the relationship between Sabretooth and Wolverine, they were good as brothers. The film however seemed thrown together in parts and I was really looking forward to it. I doubt Fox will learn from their major mistake though.
Crapola on May 4, 2009
A rated R Deadpool but like someone said if fox has anything to do with it, its ruined.
Cody on May 4, 2009
I would agree to a Gambit movie, but only if Fox signed a contract stating they will create a complete story without deviating from the comics more than what's necessary. ie sabertooth and wolverine brothers good addition, everything they did to deadpool bad, very very bad.
Semiblue on May 4, 2009
Ryan Reynolds was one of the reasons that Wolverine could have been so much better. He really is such an atrocious actor. I would probably want to see Magneto first. Since i love villians. First Class might not be a bad idea as long as their is a competant cast and director attached
Chris on May 4, 2009
I personally want to see the rights go back to Marvel so they can just start all over again with the X-Men.
????? on May 4, 2009
Deadpool.... Seriously i never read a deadpool comic, or any comic at all in my life... I sorta like ryan reynolds, and i dont think that is a bad thing... so since i never read anything deadpool i would like to see him return as deadpool. Like Alex said if they make him like that one scene where he kills everyone in a room but for a whole movie that would just make him a BAMF
Sure.. on May 4, 2009
Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds is perfectly cast for the role! Gambit would also be good to delve into!
Sean K on May 4, 2009
Liev Schreiber was actually very good as Sabertooth. the movie was god aweful but Liev and Jackman were extraordinary. i'd watch a Sabertoorth spin-off and of course a Deadpool spin-off.
The Delightful Deviant on May 4, 2009
Magneto's origin story is the best, but I don't want to see it made by Fox.
Farris on May 4, 2009
Watch Liev Shreiber in Kate And Leopold and then tell me he isn't a total badass in Wolverine.
WEAPON X on May 4, 2009
Deadpool is just the most badass character there is. Not to mention funny and different than any other character. I'd love to see him breaking the fourth wall in the movie and dissing everyone he kills.
Dan W on May 4, 2009
"Deadpool bounds up vegetarians and force-feeds them meatloaf." Why the hell wouldn't they make a movie after him?
shadowsoze on May 4, 2009
Deadpool, with absolutely no connection to Origins: Wolverine whatsoever.
Dan on May 4, 2009
Gambit, for sure.
D. on May 4, 2009
Why can't they just get their shit together, and make a fourth X-Men? Give Bryan Singer whatever he wants and get it going! I wanna see this, not a young X-Men movie, especially if the de-aging effects are as shitty with Patrick Stewart as they are in Wolverine.
robert on May 4, 2009
"I'M THE JUGGERNAUT, *****!"
BinYe East on May 4, 2009
Deadpool fo sho, Gambit fun to see but the kid had no passion about anything, f the pretty face crap. The X-Men first class would be sweet, i dug the show that was canned in the 90's too
jaywas on May 4, 2009
They ruined Wolverine!? One of the most beloved comic characters of all time!? Why do we want to see them do it to another one!? It's not all flash & if they think it is, then at least they should get THAT right? Crappy CGI that people FOCUS on doesn't help an "action" movie.
Edward on May 5, 2009
39, you are half right, yes Wade gets cancer, but the Weapon X factor was put in to help try and cure him of that cancer, giving him the regenerative abilities, not those shitty "lets mash all the powers into one" if they do an origin story of deadpool they need to do it to the teeth or else an uprising of seriously pissed off fans will emerge.
Movieraider321 on May 5, 2009
1.x-men origins:deadpool (would be so fucking cool,i'd have him battle cable not wolverine) 2.x-men origins:cable (have him battle either apocalyspe or strfye) 3.x-men origins:the white queen(from young babe to super fucking hot babe & member of the hellfire club.) 4.x-men origins:sabertooth(vs wolverine again,could be a lot darker than wolverine.) 5.x-men origins:rachel summers (the 2nd phoenix,from the future could have her as the hound,nimrod & the sentinels done right could be awesome.) 6.x-men origns:x-23(could be shit hot.)7.x-men origins:first class(professor x & his team of young x-men=cyclops,jean grey aka marvel girl,ice-man,angel & the beast vs magneto.)8.x-men origins:magneto(could be intresting if the right director handles it.)9.x-men origins:quicksilver & the scarlett witch(the children of magneto, should of had a fun childhood growing up with father like magneto.) 10.x-men origins:apocalyspe(maybe a bit more tougher to do but would be a intresting look at one of the greatest x-foes ever,start of in egypt,the intrest he has with the summer's family,his feud with cable through time & space special effects that would be fucking amazing.)
zetsu on May 5, 2009
#13 that is a fucking brilliant idea. Deadpool vs Gambit. R Rated. Cert.
geneguru on May 5, 2009
GAMBIT!!!!!!!!! BUT NOT THE POOR EXCUSE FOR A CHARACTER THEY HAD IN X-MEN ORIGINS... SOMETHING MORE LIKE THE CARTOON/COMICS.
werdnafaz on May 5, 2009
Deadpool would be great. There is a lot of potiential there but I'd prefer Marvel lead that movie instead of Fox. X-Men: First Class could be super cool. We'd see Cyclops, Emma Frost, Jean Grey, Storm and Beast for sure. But we'd also see the fall out between Magneto and Xavier. As long as Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen come back I could see it being awesome, with both of them starting a school together. Gambit...where's the story in that? X-Men Origins: Magneto, talk about a dark story. The origin of one of the strongest mutants in history. Let the entire film take place in WW2 and they could also have cameos with Sabretooth and Wolverine. X-Men 4, come on! Bring in Apocalypse and Sinister, with a little of Cable in the action. Let the film focus on Days of Future Past and Age of Apocalypse. Bring in Domino and Emma Frost as additional X-Men and bring back Cyclops as a Horseman of Apocalypse, especially since we never actually saw him die.
Marius on May 5, 2009
gambit needs his own movie
steveb on May 5, 2009
none by Fox unless they re-do the whole X-Men movies and make Gambit and Rogue around the same age and put in some background and add Deadpool, badass Wolverine, and the original X-Men team
F.C. on May 5, 2009
before we think of spin offs can we first have Fox give it up and have Marvel take sole control of their actual characters and finally make some magic!
Blue Orange NY on May 5, 2009
I like #33's idea. And since he doesn't have all the powers anymore he gets cancer from obvisouly the nuclear reactor being destroyed. Then that's when he's injected with Wolverine's healing power. But that still doesn't make sense how he's still alive after he had his FUCKING head cut off! But at least in the end his mouth wasn't sewn up anymore.
clippersman on May 5, 2009
Who's the friggin idiot who claims that it's DEADPOOL in the movie??? It IS NOT! It's Weapon XI. It is in the DEADPOOL line. It's a clone. This will lead to the familiar DEADPOOL we all know!
Blue Silver on May 5, 2009
deadpool for sure. Ryan reynolds would be hilarious as the insane deadpool.
michael on May 5, 2009
Deadpool. Make Weapon XI a clone that turns out to be T-Ray. Deadpool can do his thing in a total alternate universe, completely separate from the continuity of the X-Men trilogy. Gambit can't do that.
Motu on May 5, 2009
I believe the idiot is Stryker...in the movie...saying it was Deadpool. He may just be one of many, but he still called him Deadpool.

"Reynolds to star in 'X-Men' spinoff-Fox has begun development on 'Deadpool' " "Twentieth Century Fox has begun development on "Deadpool," an "X-Men" spinoff that will be crafted as a star vehicle for Ryan Reynolds, who played the character in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." "The character is one of the most popular in Marvel Comics' X-Men universe. Deadpool is Wade Wilson, a mercenary who, dying of cancer, submits himself to the Weapon X genetic alteration experiment and emerges as an indestructible semi-sane anti-hero. Reynolds seemed destined to play the character. In one reference in the Marvel Comics, Deadpool is described as a mix between 'a Shar Pei and Ryan Reynolds' " "In one of the "Easter egg" endings of "Wolverine," Deadpool is seen rising from the rubble and whispering "Shhh" to audiences" "The film will be produced by Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel" "Fox is also in the formative stages of a "Wolverine" sequel that will encompass the samurai storyline that was hinted at as Wolverine sat in a bar in Japan as the film concluded (Daily Variety, May 4) " "Separately, Fox is developing "Magneto," a film about the X-Men villain with a script by Shelton Turner, and "X-Men: First Class," which Josh Schwartz is penning" http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118003226.html?categoryid=13&ref=ra&cs=1

Nick S. on May 6, 2009
p.s. Deadpool was HORRIBLE in wolverine. Ryan's a funny, charismatic actor but the SLAUGHTERED the concept of deadpool *spoilers* when they decided they'd give him everyone's ****ing powers (like cyclops's eye beams, stupid antamantium samurai swords that come out of his forearms and warping powers? WTF?). it was just so typically hollywood having another premature orgasim all over the dignity of a really cool character/concept. they ****ing ruin everything by trying to make it BIGGER. **** off.
Nick S. on May 6, 2009
I would love to see Gambit's Spin off Of course and Deadpool.What makes me worry is the the involvement of FOX,which gives me the creeps. I only care about Deadpool,not that excited about First Class or Magneto.Maybe Gambit if they have him in consideration.
Fisherr on May 6, 2009
Get Damian Lewis in to play Sott Summers in a stand alone Cyclops movie. I mean he is the true leader of the x-ment team. I fucking hate the way his character was sold down the river in all of the movies so far.

All I want to see is Aurora Munroe for chrissakes!!! Also, where the hell has Mister Sinister been? If anyone thinks they want to see a Scott Summers movie(couldbe sweet, but fucking eh lets just stick to animation enough with this live actionridiculosity!) knows that we need MisterSinister! And Cable, and Corsair, and blah blah blah... APOCALYPSE! Okay.

I'd definitely like to see another Wolverine movie. It would definitely build his character more. Not to mention Hugh Jackman is a wonderful actor and chances are a lot of women would go to see the movie, just to see him. He beats Edward (Robert Patterson) from Twilight any day as far as supernatural type characters goes. I'd also like to see a movie with Deadpool, Mystique, and Gambit.

Ok I put this to a vote...who would want to see a Deadpool movie, rated R, and written/directed by Zack Snyder? Alex you get in on this too.

I love to see Kitsch in a Gambit movie and Schreiber in a Sabretooth movie.
