Fox has been making a lot of questionable decision in recent weeks. Sure, some would point to the continuation of the X-Men franchise as questionable, but I didn’t really bat an eyelid until Dark Phoenix and Alita both faced second delay and they randomly announced an untitled PG-13 Deadpool 2 film. Like, seriously, what in the hell is going on with this thing?
On the surface, it looks like a cheap cash grab. I can almost hear the execs lamenting that, despite both Deadpool films performing exceedingly well, they could have broken a billion dollars if only they went for a PG-13 rating. Smashcut to this holiday season when we’ll be getting some reworked version of the movie (though it’s not even clear at this point if it’s just the second one or something else).
Now, BBC’s Lizo Mzimba took to Twitter to reveal an intriguing title for the film:
“A tiny exclusive – have heard the planned title for the Christmas Deadpool movie is The Deadpool Before Christmas.”
As we discussed in the announcement piece, this doesn’t look to be just a simple recut of the movies, but something that incorporates (for some reason) Fred Savage getting read a bedtime story by Deadpool. I’ll admit, I was pretty damn annoyed when this was announced, but the more I look into this, the more interested I think I am.
Let’s be honest: marketing was some of the most fun stuff about these Deadpool films. If this movie somehow laces that whole attitude into it, I’d be on board.
