I just got done rewatching Deadpool. I fucking love this movie. This year has been awesome for superhero films, and it isn’t over yet. Up next is Suicide Squad, and I am desperately hoping that that lives up to the hype too. DC could use a good movie after the lameness that was Batman v Superman. That movie was such ass. Marvel wasted no time ordering a sequel after the unprecedented success that was the first movie. It blew away everyone’s expectations. Credit where it’s due, that movie never would have seen the light of day if Ryan Reynolds and company hadn’t taken a hugely slashed budget and severe limitations to get this movie off the ground. But it’s a guarantee that the next film is going to have a bigger budget. With that in mind, I have some thoughts about who would be some fun characters to have in the next film. Any of these would be great. Some of the ideas are for cameos. Others would be great for something more. Hell, all of them would, but I realize that that might be asking a lot. Here’s my list of characters to have in the next film. Cable doesn’t count, since he’s been confirmed at this point. By the way – I want Ron Perlman in the roll. That guy would be awesome! But I digress. Let’s get started!
Anyone who played the Deadpool game knows that there is a VERY fun part where, in order to save Rogue’s life, Pool makes out with her. She ends up stealing a bit too much of his talent, and takes on his mask. The voices in Deadpool’s head get to ogle the girl as you control her. It’s sexy. It’s funny. Awesome scene. Wouldn’t mind treading that in a film. Now, given the whole deal with his last film being a love story, I have no idea how this would work. He seems like the faithful type in this film’s universe. But hey, we’re just musing here anyway.
9. Mr. Shuggums
Speaking of the game, part of me is REALLY wanting to see more of Deadpool’s insane dog. In the last game, the parts with him in it were hilarious. His bonkers, brave, damn-near suicidal dog who has no problems playing catch with a grenade and blowing up. I just want there to be more of this madness in the next film. I realize that the first movie was taking chances. But now that 20th Century Fox has seen that taking chances can lead to big rewards, I am hoping they give this next production enough leeway to have fun and go mad. It’s a dream, right? So yeah, let’s have some of this insane dog. Maybe get to play fetch with more grenades. Or end up blowing Pool to bits again. Speaking if, here’s hoping we get to see him reassemble himself. Go nuts!
I’m kind of hoping that we get to see some of Pool’s pals from the X-Force come into the next film. We’re seeing Cable. Why not some more? I will never be watching the newest X-Men film, so why not have those who don’t want to sit through the baby-generation of X-Men get to know Psylocke in a different way? Like seeing her using her blades of steel and energy to cut up some bad guys with the Merc with the Mouth? I can dream, right? All the potential in an R-rated sequel in the X-Men universe! So much fun!
7. Professor X
Now, I’m talking specifically Patrick Stewart! We’ve seen our poncy British, lovable guy taking on roles just for the fuck of it. Wouldn’t it be just awesome if we could get a cameo of him trying to deal with the madness that is Deadpool? There are so many jokes that I can already see writing themselves. Like him looking inside Pool’s head and being genuinely weirded out by what he finds there. Good ol’ Stew has shown that he is cool with fucking around. So let’s have a little tidbit of some British love! Admit it, you all would love that too.
6. Lady Death
One of the biggest things about the Deadpool comic is the fact that he is utterly-enamored with Death. His obsession with her stems partly from the fact that he’s a horny fuck, and also partly because he cannot die. And Death is into him too. I know this couldn’t happen because of the whole 20th Century Fox and Disney thing, but since Thanos is obsessed with her too, I would just LOVE to see a scene where he is pissed to see her fawning all over Deadpool while he is trying to please her. Had a long discussion about that with a coworker at my job at the university library. Not to mention, this chick is cool. Whether your exposure to her is in the comics or the Deadpool game, this twisted vixen is just too cool for us not to get to meet her. Though, once-again, we have the idea that Deadpool’s last film is a love story potentially throwing a wrench into the works. Damn Hollywood and their romantic stuff.
Back to some chums from the X-Force, it’s only natural that Deadpool should spend some time with Domino. These two are thick as thieves in the comics. Both have no problem killing their opposition. Both are VERY proficient with firearms. And both have a kind of twisted sense of humor that I would love to see bouncing off one-another. Oh, and just imagine the scenes where the two go nuts on their opposition! The amount of bullets that would go flying puts a smile on my face. Hopefully yours too. Doesn’t hurt that Domino is also really hot. Just putting that out there. Since Pool is still a merc, why not have the two working as partners in the field? Guy’s gotta earn a living somehow, right? Good company never hurts.
4. Mr. Sinister
Since the Deadpool films know that the best thing to do with a villain is to make them as ridiculous and easy to make fun of as possible, I think it would be fun to see Mr. Sinister get his time in the sun in another film. This guy is so ridiculous. And we have to keep this ridiculous look. It’s so mockable! I could NEVER take this guy seriously. In the comics, or X-Men: The Animated Series. I get that he is actually pretty powerful, but come on! Nothing about this dude leaves me feeling like he is a sincere threat. The original design of Dr. Doom is more intimidating. The jokes write themselves, so I say that they should have a fun villain.
I want our Cajun friend in the next film for all kinds of reasons. First, this film wasn’t afraid to take shots at X-Men Origins: Wolverine. So why not give Gambit a chance for some redemption? Wanting this guy in the film is all about the cool factor. I hear that the Gambit film has been cancelled. So let’s get him in the next Deadpool movie! It’s such an obvious way to save face. Plus, he’s never had too much of a hard time dealing with baddies in a more permanent way. Let’s put him together with our favorite Merc and let them do some damage! I know you all want to see that as much as I do.
This is a character that I have been DYING to see in an X-Men film for ages. Since she is very down with killing her prey, I think it would be awesome if we could let her run buck-wild and be either an ally or an enemy to our friend Pool. She’s got all his healing powers, but Wolverine’s adamantium skeleton and claws. With a predilection to take lives in a gruesome way, I think a fight between her and Pool can only be nine kinds of awesome. Oh, and she’s also really hot too. Don’t you judge me! Anyone who has read the Deadpool comics knows that the Merc is down with hot chicks too. So let’s embrace this part of his character! She’s badass too, so it should offend no one.
And the person I would LOVE to see most in the next Deadpool movie is…
As before, this has GOT to be the Hugh Jackman version. The first film alluded to him having to suck on this asshole’s balls to get his movie made. I cannot honestly think of someone better to have him fuck with than this guy. Of all the characters on the list, this is probably the biggest long-shot of all, but how awesome would it be have us some ribbing at the films that Wolverine has been in. So many jokes. Naturally, the Origins movie will be the one that gets it the worst. I so want to see Jackman’s Wolverine getting pissed at Pool. Even if it’s a cameo, let’s do this! Perchance to dream.
Who would you like to see in the next film? Let me know in the Comments. Oh, I am also hoping that we get to see more of Mega Sonic Teenage Warhead. I get the feeling that she is going to be going toward the dark side. After all, she did totally crush some mercs with a van. So she isn’t bothered by the killing the way Colossus is. I got high hopes for this lady.
