This November, Wade Wilson gets into a whole world of trouble like you’ve never seen before in Deadpool #1, kicking off the all-new ongoing series from the blockbuster creative team of writers & comedians Brian Posehn (The Sara Silverman Program), Gerry Duggan (Attack of the Show!, Infinite Horizon) and superstar artist Tony Moore (The Walking Dead)! As part of Marvel NOW!, Deadpool joins a number of titles that will take the Marvel Universe in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes to deliver all-new ongoing series, great for new and veteran readers alike!
This week’s Deadpool cameo in X-Men got me thinking about his status as a 90′s refugee, generally believed to be the only thing of worth to come out of X-Force. (That one guy with purple skin who proved that Cannonball was immortal comes in a distant second, followed by “all the other stuff that happened in X-Force.”) His first appearances are among the few remaining gems of the speculator age, and even those who aren’t fans of the character generally enjoy his wackiness. I went looking in my back issue bins for interesting Deadpool stories, and I was a little bit stunned at what I found…
Or – “Pink Hotpants And A Bright Yellow Jacket? How Is That A Costume?”
After her depowerment and a humiliating job leading a lame-duck revival of the New Warriors, Jubilee has had a rough go of it in recent years, tough enough that getting killed and transformed into vampire is actually a step up. Super-strong, invulnerable, and now just as immortal as the man she clearly has a crush on? These seem like good things.
Each year, we take the time to chat it up with the Major Spoilers Costume Contest winner. It was a close race once again this year, as we had over 3,500 people vote for the best costume of the year. When the final vote was cast, Clark Carruth came out on top with his Deadpool costume. Without further ado, take the jump to find out more about the winner.
In the follow-up to Spider-Man Annual #38, Wade Wilson wreaks his own brand of havoc through an alternate universe in his own #1 Annual. How will Deadpool deal with Death Wish, Brain Dead, Deadeye, Dead Head and the dreaded Death Mask? Find out!
Ryan Reynolds may get a lot of attention with the upcoming Green Lantern movie, but many fans are eagerly awaiting his return to the Deadpool role. X-Men Origins: Deadpool is getting closer to production with the announcement that Tim Miller will be directing the movie.
If you haven’t heard of Tim Miller before, that’s okay, as this is his first directing gig. Most of the time he’s behind a computer doing visual effects from his effects house, Blur Studios. He’s directed many video game trailers, and is doing some work with Ron Howard on The Dark Tower, so it isn’t like he’s a complete n00b.
X-Men Origins: Deadpool is being written by the team of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, with Lauren Shuler Donner producing.
