He’s back! The man, the myth, the legend, Deadpool aka Wade Wilson! Fans everywhere are anticipating the sequel to Deadpool which comes out this month. It was recently revealed that the Merc with a Mouth was orignally going to be a dad in Deadpool 2. With Deadpool’s personality, it doesn’t come off as a suprise as towards why they never went through with the idea.
“The genesis of it was ‘What if Deadpool had a child?’ Like, what if we started five years later and what would that be like?’ Reynolds told EW. “by page 1.5, it was totally untenable. We were just like, ‘Nope. Nope. No, no, no. This is never, ever going to work.”
Again, it’s no suprise as towards why they never went with the idea. The idea of Deadpool being a dad is not the biggest shock, but it does not suit the way that the filmakers would want to go about with his character. There are so many different directions that they could take with this character, even after Deadpool 2. Wade Wilson being a father right now, doesn’t fit the direction they could go with the character. Ryan Reynolds, who stars as Deadpool, co-wrote the film’s script with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Together they came to the conclusion that Deadpool being a dad didn’t feel right, but that him wanting a family but couldn’t have one, felt right.
“We went back to the drawing board and kind of reworked it in a way about wanting to have a child, which is something that so many people I know experience on a daily basis- wanting to have a child but can’t.”
Deadpool being a father doesn’t seem that so farfetch as something for later. But for right now, they made a good decison in keeping Deadpool doing his shenanigans the way it was meant to be. Him wanting a family makes him human, and as much of a badass he is, he still has human emotions. Who knows where exactly they will take Deadpool’s story after Deadpool 2 but fans can see Deadpool 2 in theaters this month!
