The last few weeks have been really busy, so I don't really have time to write a movie review this week. Instead, I'm just going to talk about one of the most awesome comic book characters in existence, Deadpool.
Deadpool is a Marvel Comics character. Originally portrayed as a villain, he is now more of a comedic character than anything else. Often breaking the fourth wall for laughs, acting insane, or just talking other superheroes' ears off. He's so popular that he currently has 3 or 4 ongoing series to himself, as well as regular appearances in the Uncanny X-Force. Wait, why am I talking about Deadpool in a movie/games blog? Simple, they're working on a movie. Not sure how long it'll take, but here's hoping they do it right - unlike the Wolverine Origins version.
So what made Deadpool as crazy as he is. Well, he had terminal cancer, so the Weapon X program, the same program that laced Wolverine's skeleton with metal, injected his cancer with some healing factor. It's kind of confusing, but he's pretty much immortal, his body is cancer, he's insane, and how quickly he heals from injuries depends on his mental state or something like that.
That's about all I got for now. Hopefully I can post my next movie review next week, but it's already looking pretty busy again.
