There’s No Other Comic Book Movie Like It
I don’t know about you but between the endless Marvel movies and the ultra-serious Dark Knight series, I’m starting to feel a little bit of fatigue when it comes to spandex and supervillains. Think about it – these movies are spewed out a handful at a time each year and every single one follows the same general rules. I don’t know how many times a bad guy has threatened to destroy the world only to be stopped at the last by the masked hero. Change the record guys!
Lucky for us, Deadpool is giving the genre a shot in the arm it so desperately needs. Whether he’s breaking the fourth wall or simply breaking legs and necks, Deadpool looks set to push the boundaries of a movie trend that is inevitably losing steam. Well what do you expect? There are no other heroes out there that are cut from the same cloth as Wade.
Fox could have taken the easy road and opted to stick with the tried and tested formula, but they’ve held true to the origins of the character and gone all in with something we’ve never seen before.
