While the casting was considered perfect, his on-screen portrayal was reviled at the time for straying too far from the source material by infamously silencing the Merc with the mouth. Reynolds would eventually get his way with 2016’s deadpool, which not only did the character justice, but also proved that an R-rated superhero movie could be successful. It was followed by the sequel, Deadpool 2who introduced other obscure characters such as Cable, Domino, Bedlam, Zeitgest, and Shatterstar, and featuring Deadpool 3 Moving forward at Marvel Studios, one of these recent heroes wants a chance to return.
