There is a lot of talk and discussion about whether or not Robert Rodriguez will direct the Deadpool movie for 20th Century Fox.  I don’t know whether a comment by Rodriguez at the San Diego Comic Con got everyone in a tizzy, or if the director and Fox have really come to an agreement, but the L.A. Times is running the story that the parties are sitting down for some serious negotiations.  Now negotiations are a far cry from a done deal, especially when there are specific items that need to be addressed by both sides.

It would be great to see Rodriguez stretch his legs and explore the more adult side of the capes and tights genre as opposed to his Lavagirl and Sharkboy movie.

What say you Spoilerites? Does a Rodriguez directed Deadpool movie sit right with you?

    As long as he doesn’t end up in as many other movies as he has comics we’ll be good…

    I can’t think of anybody else who does this kind of humour/violence mix… Well there’s Tarantino, but I doubt he would do a Deadpool movie.

      Yes, but if Tarantino were directing, in between the action scenes there would be a 45 minute long single take of people sitting around and talking, preferably in a foreign language. The dialogue would actually be great though, so I wouldn’t feel like my ears had been given the old “how about just a massage” line that Wolverine gave to me.

    I think he would do great directing a Deadpool movie. My only concern is that his characterization would be flat and he’d focus too much on the action/violence.
