I wonder when the film will take place. After TS3? Between TS2 and TS3? It will be interesting to see where they decide to place the film in the timeline.
Whatever. It's not like anyone is expecting much from this film. I will say that this film has the most potential of any comic book film ever to surprise. Even if it's marginal it will be a pleasant surprise. However, since 95% of the theater-going audience expects a massive trainwreck, there really is nowhere to go but up...

@Erikajinx No to the Joker's Daughter, plus Captain Boomerang has to be on the team.

Robbie's a keeper.
We'll see what happens when a great idea comes to him after he's made ten films.
That she's not Japanese is not a big deal for this property. Kusanagi's in a cybernetic body, not a human flesh.
I said Sandman wasn't a DCU film months ago, on this website. Anyone that read the books probably realized the same thing.
Thing is, Keaton is old enough to pull off a live-action version of The Dark Knight Returns. He could also pull off being Old Bruce Wayne in a Batman Beyond film.
Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Whoopi Goldberg, and Cate Blanchett. There. Your new Ghostbusters...

Deadshot and Boomer should always be on the team.
Good. Brainiac is a top shelf villain.

If he wasn't interested, fine. But if it comes down to the fact that he wasn't sure he could pull off a green-screen film, then there is only one word to describe him: Coward.

@shuabert He's in total control here. One, he's the star of the only billion dollar franchise Marvel has, not including the Avengers team up films. While some people think Marvel can replace him, the fact is that he's a sure bet while another actor is an uncertainty. Second, age is not really a factor, and may not be for a good long while. If Downey can keep himself in reasonable shape, he can go a few more films. A stuntman can easily do the "Iron Man in action" scenes, leaving RDJ to be Stark.

I've said all along, everything he is saying, either way, is nothing more than negotiating tactics. No reason to change my tune...

The Infinity Gauntlet, the story that Marvel seems to be heading towards adapting, could easily support two films, so I'm fine with this possibility.

@aryaza MW has been censoring comments for a few years now. Just because you're new doesn't excuse your ignorance.

@Ben-Saul-Wilkin Your argument is flawed because neither Kick-Ass or Watchmen pulled in big bucks. Additionally, those properties aren't "big house" characters. Deadpool is, and that means there is an added pressure for the film to perform big. In order to do that, they need as big an audience as possible.

As much as some of you don't like it, money makes the Hollywood world go round. FOX is only taking this project on because of the success of the last three X-Men oriented films. It has given FOX confidence that a Deadpool film may be a profitable entity, and if it becomes a big hit, they may have a new franchise. In short, X-Men's financial success has paved the way. Without that, there is no way this film would be made, and frankly no reason for them to do it. If you don't like the product they put out, you don't have to see it. Hell, why don't you just make your own damn film. I'm sure you all have $100-150 million lying around somewhere to get this thing rolling.

@thedude1 Right, but 1) there's a first time for everything, and 2) I think it's a smart move. It would get crushed going directly against BvS or Cap 3. Furthermore, FOX will likely be placing X-Men: Apocalypse sometime in the middle of summer 2016, either June or July. So, putting Deadpool in the middle of three strong entities would likely get it lost in the shuffle.

Additionally, aside from fans of the character, there isn't much of an outcry for this film. Putting out in February may mean that there is less pressure. It's not getting tentpole treatment, and therefore it's expectations are lower. If it exceeds those expectations, good things may spring forward.

@thedude1 Normally, I'd agree with you about February being a dead month, but 2016 is a different case. BvS is being released in March, Cap 3 in May, so it stands to reason that if FOX wants to make some money off of Deadpool, putting him before those films seems like a better idea. Don't let it get lost in the shuffle, or suffer from summertime movie fatigue.

As for Reynolds, maybe this time he'll star in a cbm that doesn't suck (although admittedly, the failures of GL, X:Men: Wolverine, and Blade Trinity cannot be laid at his feet).
