Let me begin with my thoughts on the film. I went in expecting a good Deadpool movie and I got one. No, I got a perfect one. I thought not only the character, but the actual filmmaking was handled so flawlessly and with so much love, I was honestly blown away by how much I was consistently blown away by Deadpool. I was worried just how Deadpool they would make deadpool. Would he be the childish, charming mercenary we know and love or just Van Wilder in a mask, watered down for mass appeal? He was pitch perfect. Ryan Reynolds didn't give us a take on Deadpool, he gave us Deadpool. There are so many great little moments, like where he casually picks up a hub cap from a car and tosses it at Ajax because he's bored, or where he masturbates to a stuffed unicorn. Everything I love about him in the books and games was there.
So the ending credits stinger in Deadpool announces that Cable will in fact be in Deadpool 2. This can mean a lot of things. For one, Cable is an older, former soldier that usually serves as a more mature and gritty balance to Deadpool. Think of Cable as almost a father figure to Wade, who's just as annoying to Wade as Wade is to literally everyone else. He's a staple of the franchise and a fan favorite. Cable can allow the film to going to huge places, as Deadpool's toughest missions usually have Cable right by his side. His appearance could also potentially introduce Domino, a telpathic marks-woman.
The world-building of Deadpool is always fun to speculate, but what about the character? Where will he go? For one, me personally would love to see Deadpool's teleportation belt, built by Weasel. It's a belt, obviously, that allows Wade to teport short distances, usually to get the upper hand in a fight. Will we ever see his omnisexual side? Deadpool is an omnisexual, meaning if his brain decides he's gay for a night, he's gay for that night. Speaking of relationships, depending on if the one we have already seen lasts or not, will we see Deadpool fall in love with Death? Death and Deadpool are often shown in a relationship, as Deadpool can not die, and Death usually kills whomever she touches. Deadpool's rich history can mean one of the most diverse and interesting characters ever to be put in screen.
We're dipping our toes into unrealistic territory starting right now, but oh well. The ending set piece of Deadpool takes place on a crashed S.H.I.E.L.D helicarrier, confirmed by Reynolds himself, although the famous logo cannot be seen. Also, there's a Sam Jackson as Nick Fury reference. Kevin Feige, lead producer for Marvel Studios, was heavily rumored to be producing Deadpool uncredited, although Marvel unfortunately shut down that rumour, but again, it's fun to think about, especially as Deadpool, right now in the comics, is an Avenger. Seriously though, don't ever think we'll get Deadpool in a Marvel Studios film. It's not happening.
So that's where I think Deadpool could go, should go, and probably never will go. Fox just struck gold with such a unique character, it would be a sin not to get the most out of him. I can't wait to see where the films take him, the possibilities are literally endless...
