Deadpool Comic Scribe Writing the Game

By   /   Jul 20, 2012


Activision has announced that the current writer for Deadpool’s on-going comic book run — Daniel Way — will also be doing the honors for the Deadpool game.

In a rather ingenious move, Activision’s press release makes it out so that it seems like Deadpool himself wrote it.

Supposedly, head of developer High Moon Studios Peter Della Penna claims that¬†“Deadpool came by the studio one day, said he was taking over, and that if I didn’t hire Marvel writer Daniel Way pronto and make the most amazing Deadpool video game, he’d break both of our arms and beat us to death with them. I have kids, so we’re making the game.”

“Deadpool” also adds, “My Deadpool game will feature all of my favorite things – katanas (check), big guns (and not just these amazing arm muscles) (check), crazy poop-your-pants action (check), hot chicks (check), maybe some of my X-Men friends (well, depending on what they’re wearing), burritos, bouncy houses and of course ME!!! (check) (check) And check!”

Way better than the usual cookie-cutter press release, no?

Deadpool will be out next year for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
