Deadpool is like, THE least mature Marvel character. Can anyone imagine how lame this would be with Liefeld’s DP?
This is literally test footage, meaning it’s basically a proof of concept to give the execs something tangible in order to make a decision. Being in any creative field whether it’s design, television, movies, etc it’s always a good idea to have something to show. This CGI was more than likely a lot cheaper than actually shooting something that had half the running time. If you notice, the CGI isn’t even that good.
Cgi looked good to me
i know nothing of liefields deadpool…i just know he created it.
uh? that cgi was good. and where did you hear live action? also you can easily make a good 8 min concept video on par with w.e hollywoods crapping out for 1/5th the budget.
I’m a Deadpool hipster. Been reading that shit since 1997 when I was 14. I’m fucking 30 now.
This was my first issue, mom gave me some change and I went out and bought this in the summer of '97.
Nobody gave a shit about him, that’s why the series flopped. Plus, it was never as good as Joe Kelly’s.
Copying the cover of Wolverine #88. Kelly.
They should compare it as much of the Joe Kelly run as they can. From #1-33 of the original volume.
That was the most enjoyment I ever had reading a book. It was well written humour without it being too over the top stupid.
And it created one of the cooler Deadpool villains, T-Ray.
I don’t collect comics anymore, but I was buying all the dumbest shit with Deadpool on it just because it was Deadpool. Glad I stopped.
I’ll still see this movie, but I’m gonna consider all the people in the theatre losers cause they enjoy Waypool and think it’s better than Kellypool.
I honestly am in a similar boat as you - I have only followed DP up thru Cable & Deadpool, last I heard they were making him sillier and crazier, I think leading up to that was the perfect blend. T-Ray would make an interesting villain for a movie too…known to DP fans, but no one else really.
I quit at like Cable/Deadpool #3 when they were fighting those blue men, I think it was? haha
I started up again when DP restarted with Way.
I just excited to collect him again, picked up every variant I could. But through half of it, it’s almost like I forced myself to enjoy it because it was the hero of my youth.
I stopped collecting comics a few years ago, I think I have a bag from the comic store I haven’t even bag&boarded yet. I’ll have to see what it contains when I get home tonight haha
I stopped buying comics like 15+ years ago, I torrented some for a bit, been trying to give them what I owe via the hardback collections of like Planet Hulk & world War Hulk, but they want too much. DP is another one, I torrented Deadpool & Cable.
But I wont’ say stopped collecting. I’m trying to get my grubby mits on every single comic that has Death’s Head, Death’s Head II, Death Metal, Death Wreck, Die-Cut (think I have all those now), and Dark Angel. MArvel UK 4tw.
I’ve since given away everything else including my old DP comics - just from all the moving I did during and after college (once a year heh).
That reminds me, I need to find a place where I cna get frames for comics for cheap…I got a house now so I can fnally put up my DH2 collection…
Back to DP though, Cable/Deadpool had its moment, I’m not even shitting on DP ‘after that’, I just stopped following and what folks were saying about it, just didn’t interest me enough. I’m glad he’s getting shine now - I’ve always said he’s a more tragic Wolverine - Wolverine gets all the ‘anti-hero’ love, but DP’s origin is way more tragic (stage 4 cancer with the solution being healing himself up so much that he goes crazy due to dying brain cells?). Like though funny and silly - you still wanted to cheer for DP when he was dealing with stuff because of what he was dealing with.
And Dat 4th Wall Fuckery…
Guys… if you think that CGI was good, then we really don’t have anything to talk about. No offense at all intended.
Just as a quick, rough example, compare just the Deadpool model to how Rocket and Groot turned out in GotG. That’s good CGI.
Like I said, the Deadpool teaser isn’t even a teaser, it’s a proof of concept for movie/studio execs.
If you’re talking something which is 90% dialogue, you’re correct. In this instance, you’re not. An equivalent live action concept containing the same action beats, would have a ridiculous budget.
haha Shit, hearing DH, Die-Cut, Dark Angel… Reminded me the Marvel Series 4 set!

But like you, I do agree. He is definitely tragic. And I hope the movie isn’t just 4th wall fuckery and terrible jokes.
I used to collect those. Almost had the entire set.
Ya me too. Then when I got older, I bought the whole set off ebay haha
I had ALL the Marvel UK cards for that set gives Bro-hug I had them in the binder and everything, I think I had like 2 or 3 complete pictures from that series, that was the one I worked on heh. threw them out when I went off to college though :sad:
Shit man, is there anything you didn’t throw out before college? Sounds like you got rid of your life.
we were talking about a short 8 min video not a full fledged movie.
And that’s because Yost is superior to Way.
I enjoyed the new X-Force for a while. Really liked Crain’s art. And his name sounds like a Spider-Man villain.
If anyone is curious, test footage was made by blur studios.
So am I. That’s why all the shorts that Marvel releases are rarely heavy on action. They’re mostly all dialogue.
if you are…then you’re wrong. ive had alot of friends work on their own projects,similar in concept for test footage for studios, a 8 min short to show investors and such has no need to be 3x the budget of that 3d animation. its a well done project from a really well known studio. there is absolutly no real gurentee a live action version as a test would be that expensive.
I had like one big sit down literally teh day or day before college, I went through all my ‘childish things’ and tossed them, all my old action figures, 90% of my comic collection as I knew they wouldn’t be worth anything - though I kept the important ones, I through away all my atheltic cards as I knew they weren’t going to amount to much, I through out my Nintendo as I had been running it and SNES on emulation anyways, just cleaned shop. I’m not too mad at myself, though I wish I kept a few more of my comics.
