Deadpool Toy is Disfigured
— Posted by Rodney
Again I find myself falling back on a toy release for movie news. I really dislike doing this, but with all the buzz about Deadpool being in the X-Men Origins Wolverine film, this sheds some light on the character that might make fans happy.
This new toy from the X-Men Origins: Wolverine line shows a really scarred up Deadpool with marks all over his upper body and face paint
This is the hokiest packaging for a film related toy I have ever seen. But as far as Deadpool goes, I don’t get the strapped on arm blade things. Is he trying to make fun of Wolverine? Deadpool always was the joker.
Fans were outraged to see Ryan Reynold’s face in the previews, but a while back I reminded the International Friends that in the comics there was a running gag that Deadpool used an image inducer to hide his scarred and disfigured face, and that he made himself look like Tom Cruise. I really hope they nod to this reference in the books and have him name drop Ryan Reynolds as his face of choice.
Likely we will get to see the Reynolds face, and this scarred version as implied by the toy, but who knows if we will get to see the full red mask suit? I really hope so.
