Deadpool: The Video Game

One of the many things that Gavin Hood’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” got wrong was Deadpool, the anti-hero from the X-Men comics, because they turned him to a silent assassin-type, as opposed to the raging arsehole assassin-type that was in the comics.
In that film Deadpool was played by Ryan Reynolds, which is interesting because Reynolds also played Hannibal King in “Blade: Trinity,” a character that was a bit of a wise arse, but shouldn’t have been.
Though it appears that the designers at High Moon were paying attention because, if the trailer from the video game is at all accurate, they aren’t making the same mistakes because their depiction of the character makes him seem like the moronic, irrelevant idiot who just happens to gets his jollies committing acts of remarkable violence against those that oppose him.
Just like in the comics.
