Dear Fox Execs: We Don’t Want to Say We Told Ya So, But…Yeah, Yeah We Do

The Deadpool movie is demolishing records and, as one blogger so eloquently put it: “Proving that studio execs have no idea what we really want”. And that fills me with a strange sense of pride. The movie was fought at practically every turn… They said it wouldn’t be popular because Deadpool isn’t a “mainstream” superhero.

Yes, as usual it seems that the studio executives are the only ones who haven’t got the slightest clue what’s really going on. This is a pretty common theme in general, and is the reason why certain types of movies, shows, video games, and books continue to be made over, and over, and over, and over, while truly wonderful, different, original stuff tends to be pushed off to the side with a half-hearted excuse of, “It’s not the same as this, so it’ll never make money.”

It’s a tired old tale, and one I’m sure you’ve heard many times before, but in this case that tale was shaking, shattered, and had its fourth wall demolished multiple times. Lookout, world…Deadpool has made it. XD

And to celebrate this fact, I shot a little video to show off my personal Deadpool collection, and since it’s currently 4:30 in the morning and I’ve got to get dressed and ready for the work bus that leaves in less than an hour, please take that video as a peace offering for the fact that I passed out last night without writing a blog post. ^_~ GO DEADPOOL!
