Deadpool Video Game Coming and it Needs a Swear Jar
July 16th, 2012
If you’re a huge Marvel comic book fan, you may be more familiar with Deadpool than I am. I grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons, so I am familiar with all the superheroes that were on when I was growing up, but I never read comic books as a kid. The only familiarity I have with Deadpool was from Ryan Reynolds portrayal of the character in the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Now it turns out that Deadpool will be getting his very own standalone video game. The superhero had turned up in other video games the past as a playable character, but this will be his first dedicated game title. It appears to be a typical combat game with Deadpool using guns and swords. The character will be voiced by Nolan North, who also voiced Deadpool in “Hulk Vs” and “Spider-Man: Shattered Dreams”.
To go along with the announcement that the video game is coming, Activision, Marvel, and High Moon Studios released a trailer for the game at Comic-Con. The trailer shows the snarky humor that Deadpool is known for along with a lot of colorful language. Keep in mind again that the video above is NSFW thanks to language.
