If Fox Wants Fans To Shut-up About Marvel Getting Their Licenses Back, They Should Make The Deadpool Movie Now 15

Share

Twentieth Century Fox has to be frustrated. When early images of Quicksilver from X-men: Days of Future Past were released, fans on the Internet screamed that the studio should give the X-Men license back to Marvel. The feeling was that Marvel Studios was the only film company that could possibly do Quicksilver justice.

Even the fact that X-Men: Days of Future Past turned out to be a great movie and Quicksilver was one of the best parts of it did not quell the Internet’s thirst to see Fox’s Marvel licenses returned to Marvel. Every time someone associated with the Fantastic Four reboot opens their mouth, there are dozens of headlines reporting fans screaming out in bloody outrage.

The simple fact of the matter is that fans want to see all the Marvel characters interact in the same cinematic universe, and they know that probably isn’t going to happen unless Marvel Studios gets all the licenses back. Fox is fighting an uphill battle against negative publicity every time they announce a Marvel project.

However, over the weekend, the best thing that could possibly ever happen to Fox in regards to their Marvel properties happened. Someone leaked the test footage from an unmade Deadpool movie, and it was phenomenally good. All of a sudden the Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Avengers: Age of Ultron footage from earlier in the weekend was a distant memory, and the Deadpool movie by accident stole the buzz that Warner Bros. and Marvel Studios had worked so hard to build.

So how has Fox reacted to the leaked footage? They’ve been making their best efforts to get the Deadpool footage completely pulled from the Internet. But despite their efforts, the footage just keeps popping up. The Internet will not let go of the Deadpool movie footage. The Internet is literally demanding that the movie be made.

Perhaps, Fox should take a deep breath and really think about what the Internet is telling them. For the first time ever, the entire Internet fan community seems to be genuinely excited about the prospect of Fox making another movie involving Marvel characters. A movie that, let’s be honest, Disney-owned Marvel Studios would probably never, ever consider making in the way that it needs to be done.

Instead of trying to eradicate the Deadpool footage from the Internet, maybe Fox should be releasing an official copy of the footage, along with a note that says, “If you ever want to see a R-Rated Deadpool movie, then shut the f-up about Disney/Marvel getting their licenses back.”

Fox has the answer to actually getting the fan community behind them on a Marvel project. They just need to wake up and realize it. Fox needs to stop fighting the Internet and needs to give the Internet what it wants. FOX NEEDS TO MAKE THE DEADPOOL MOVIE NOW!

    Fair point

    Very well said, they totally need to make it. That footage was really good.

    In my opinion, the Deadpool footage ranked #2 among the four footages shown this weekend (1. AoU, 2. Deadpool, 3. Ant-man, 4. BvS), but it certainly has generated a lot of buzz. Hopefully Deadpool will get greenlit soon. Sometimes I wish the studios would just listen to comic book fans more...

    Either Fox commits to making a R-rated Deadpool movie or pass the licence back to Marvel(And keep our fingers crossed that Disney/Marvel will be open to a R-rated Deadpool movie).

    Do.Or do not.There is no try.

    Hey the Marvel Studio cheerleaders are here. I'm shocked. Shocked!

     Now we just need Samurai36 here to start a flamewar and this site can devolve into Comicbookmovie.com or Bleedingcool.

     Can't wait.

    Couldn't agree with you more DSniner. Why can't someone just enjoy a great footage of a beloved comic book character?

    Nope. I enjoy good footage; always have and always will. Can't help what the footage is or who its from, as long as its good, I'll like it

    Fox needs to do this because he is a great entertaining character that if done right would be awesome. I'm thinkin a lil funny from the Hangover (the first one), a dash of realism from the current trend of hero movies and a metric crap ton of tacos! Also never give the internet 'what it wants' or feed it after midnight or go to a bar with it cause it seemed nice and interested in you but you wake up the next morning trying to find your dignity/underwear and realising thats not whats missing its your soul. It ate your soul. Just sayin...

  12. Makes perfect sense to me. We all know how unlikely crossovers between the universes will be, but Deadpool is a character that could simply pop up as a cameo and have him explain it away with a line. If Fox are going with Apocalypse and the X Men, having Deadpool be a part of Weapon X in the new continuity and randomly joke about The Avengers in X Men would be a perfect gag imo. The companies don't need to crossover, but having a character people roll their eyes at acknowledging stuff like this, as he does in the comics, would be perfect comic relief. Especially if Reynolds ends up playing Deadpool and someone in the DC films, because Deadpool could again mention it.

    The Deadpool test footage was simply AWESOME. I don't care which studio makes the movie, just get it done!

  14. Well it is not like Disney doesn't or has not released an R rated movie. Clerks is technically a Disney movie and not many people know that because they owned Miramax and while they don't own Miramax anymore they could always use another Studio name for the R rated projects. But back to Fox itself, I hate that Fox thinks R rated comic movies won't sell when you can look at 300 and Sin City, Watchmen (for some reason, I was never a Watchmen fan myself but) it made money and were borderline X rated in so many ways.

    Exellcior!!!!!!!Seriously though?!??!?! get with the program Fox, I guarantee this would easily make atleast half its budget with fans alone if sparked as a kickstarter even Ryan Reynolds is adamant about the role and he's an A-lister so what does that tell you when hes staking his reputation on this role? get with the program. every one of you who doubt greenlighting and pushing this movie forward should have that "inner retard" that Christopher Titus talks frequently about in your heads giving you all grief for being so foolish and pussyfooting so much on a cash cow of such epic proportions. "Idiot!"
