Deadpool and the Wolverine Movie
After a discussion with some good friends about the Wolverine movie as well and reading a couple Deadpool comic books recently I decided to comment on the character in the movie. Since Deadpool doesn't really appear until the end of the movie It will be spoilery. The first problem with the character is of course that his mouth was sewn shut. This is a joke I suppose but the character's nickname is "The Merc with the mouth," so having him without a mouth seems to be a bit problematic. Second is the breaking of the fourth wall. I understand that this might be odd in a movie, but that is what deadpool does and you could have done it without completely doing it. Simply have him look into the camera that could have been to the audience but also could be to one of the other characters. I can understand the decisions to do it this way. The movie is called X-men origins: Wolverine so having deadpool take over the end would have been problematic. So here is an idea on how to avoid completely changing Deadpool while still allowing wolverine to star in the end of his own movie... Ready? Here it is. DON'T USE DEADPOOL AS THE VILLAIN. I know it's radical but here's my thought. If the character you are choosing doesn't work in the plot use someone else. There are roughly 9 million mutants in the x-men universe so choose someone else. This has of course happened in many other comic book movies as well, and it's not that i feel that the character has to be an exact copy of the one in the book. I enjoy smallville most of the time and that show regularly plays with villains and heroes, the difference is that you can still recognise them as the same character even without the names. Here are a few things about deadpool that they changed, his powers, his look, his motivation, his personality and his origin. So what makes this character deadpool? He is called dead pool beacues, get this, he is a pool of death created to be weapon 11. Finally I wanted to comment on how this will effect upcoming movies. This may not seem important since the character dies at the end of the movie but there are strong rumors that there will be a Deadpool movie. So will it simply ignore everything that happened in this movie or will it try to turn this character into the one from the comics?

Wolverine Origins Leaked: What really happened
You may have already heard that a pirated copy of the unreleased movie Wolverine Origins was leaked onto the Internet. The leaking of movies onto the Internet is not an unusual event but this is one of the earliest leaks and many involved with the movie fear that it will cut into box office sales, and had brought in the FBI to investigate. In an attempt to help Huge Jackman I have contacted my sources in the underground and it appears that the there may be more to the pirated release of this movie than it first appears. As I have been able to piece it together the story begins nearly three weeks before the movie was leaked onto the Internet when an intern was secretly replaced by a robot replica. This replica, began to implement a plan to put secret subliminal messages into the movie Wolverine Origins that would put everyone who watched it under the mental control of a secret villainous organization bent on world domination. It was because of this that agent Hugh Markman was sent into the movie. Hugh Markman, it can now be relieved, is a genetically improved clone of Hugh Jackman. In the course of the battle the android began to throw razor sharp disks at Hugh Markman who was forced to take cover behind a bank of computers where the movie was being edited. Disarmed and under barrage the secret agent was forced to send out a message in a more unconventional form and so in a desperate attempt to free himself he released a copy of Wolverine Origins onto the Internet. Recognizing this as a cry for help the FBI sent in task force X to rescue their man, destroying the Android, and any evidence of who may have built the machine, except for a single clue, a small recess in the head with manual controls, a few white hairs and the word Narf, which was heard by several eyewitnesses and is now suspected to be some type of password used by the members of this criminal organization to identify themselves and a single frame of security camera footage seen below.
