Back before Tim Miller was directing his record-breaking smash hit Deadpool, he was one of the guiding forces behind developing the animated adaptation of Eric Powell’s comic series The Goon.
David Fincher signed on to produce the film in 2008 , working off a script from Powell himself, and recruited Miller to co-direct the project along with Jeff Fowler. The effort eventually culminated with a trailer length release of some test footage in 2012, not unlike the video that gained a large enough viral following to get Deadpool off the ground. However, unlike what happened with Deadpool, that was the last anyone heard about the project.

Alright guys, I don’t know if you could tell how excited I was about Deadpool, but it was a lot. Normally, I like to keep my expectations at a neutral 5 just in case a movie doesn’t cut it. At least then I don’t leave the theater too incredibly bummed out. However for Deadpool, I had a much harder time maintaining my expectation composure, and my neutrality went through the window back when the test footage leaked. I set myself up for disappointment. There was no way the movie was going to be everything I wanted it to be…
EXCEPT IT WAS. – Spoilers ahead.. maybe? Kinda.

MAN, I LOVE DEADPOOL.
The movie hasn’t even come out yet and it’s already my favorite movie ever. Whoever is on this marketing team really deserves an award. Do they give awards for that? They should.
Here’s and example. Since Deadpool is set to release very close to Valentine’s Day, this A+ marketing team has created rom-com inspired posters for this very not rom-com movie/character, and it is pure gold.

Are you excited for Deadpool? I know I am, and most people I talk to certainly are excited as well. Here’s the thing though. With the rise of Deadpool came something of a casualty as well that most people aren’t thinking about – The Death of X-Force.
Maybe death is a little premature. After all, we are here to talk about some concept art from the film that finally reveals the team we might have seen on the big screen, but let’s back up.
A cinematic adaptation of X-Force first began gaining some traction when it was revealed that Jeff Wadlow would be writing and directing the X-spinoff for Fox. His script was praised by both Mark Millar – who Wadlow worked with on Kick-Ass 2 – as well as X-Force creator Rob Liefeld. There were rumors about the film and the five-person team we might see, and news was starting to drop in pretty fast.
Then the Deadpool test footage leaked, the Internet exploded, and Fox changed gears a bit. Suddenly Deadpool was finally happening and Ryan Reynolds was happy again. Unfortunately all X-news then focused on either the main trilogy of films (which we can expect to conclude with the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse) or the two new buzz-worthy spinoffs with Deadpool and Gambit.
