Marvel Announces Deadpool Videogame

A veritable plethora of exciting news came out of this year’s San Diego Comic Con, but this little nugget just might be my favorite: Marvel is teaming up with developer High Moon Studios and publisher Activision to produce a videogame for the most self-aware and sarcastic anti-hero around, Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth. A trailer, seen above, was released last week.

For those that have only seen the character in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” do your best to wipe what knowledge you think you have of him from your collective memories. Just know this: Deadpool is a disfigured and certifiably insane mercenary who’s great at using every weapon imaginable and better at being  sarcastic prick. In his comics, the Merc often breaks the fourth wall for humorous effect, and it makes him one of the most entertaining characters out there.

Deadpool has appeared in games before, he’s a playable character in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and we got to beat up on him in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, but this is the first time he’ll be in the spotlight. Nolan North, who voiced him in the aforementioned games will be returning to the character. Little did you know, you’re likely already familiar with North’s work, he’s Desmond Miles in the Assassin’s Creed games as well as Nathan Drake from the Uncharted series.

Little else is known about the game so far, Marvel has yet to announce a genre, release date or which platforms it will be available on. We can only hope that High Moon (best known as the makers of the last three Transformers games) will stay true to the character, meaning the game will be rated M. Based on the trailer, that seems to be the case, and it’ll be chock full of violence, swearing, and of course, Deadpool’s trademark wit.

Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope

Here’s a review of Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope from Bob Westal:

Yeah, so it’s got a lousy title and it’s not earth-shattering cinema, but Morgan Spurlock’s entirely watchable and entertaining little Comic-Con movie accomplishes the task it sets for itself. In 88 minutes, we get a very decent gloss on the Comic-Con experience and just what it can mean for some people, minus the aching feet, sleep deprivation and $8.00 hot dogs.

Looks like he enjoyed it . . .
