To be fair, this isn’t ‘news’ as you’d normally think. The script for a DEADPOOL movie was released online around 2010 and that was in the dark times, pre-ComicUI. With the recent images and news around next year’s officially announced Deadpool film, I’ve decided to revisit this leaked script to see if we can discern some information from it. We’re only seeing DEADPOOL get his own movie due to the HUGE, positive reaction to the leaked test footage.
First and foremost, this script could potentially contain HUGE SPOILERS for next year’s movie. That being said, a lot of news coming out recently match this 5 year old script. If you don’t want to ruin the movie or the running gags, I recommend turning back now. For those who want to see the basic idea for Deadpool, continue on. All notes will be AFTER the script PDF below, so you can scroll down for those.
If you’re looking for something to do, you can save a copy to your tablet/computer and read it on your free time. I will warn you, if this turns out to be true, then there are SPOILERS ahead, my friends.

Ok, now that you’ve read that and have been warned, Deadpool. This script is from 2010 and it shows, including a recurring Amy Winehouse gag, in which Deadpool thinks he will outlive her. She died in 2011, so…we think that’ll be taken out. Lindsay Lohan is a good target these days!
Secondly, a recent casting call sheet gives some generic names to characters to appear in this script. We talk about this on Superhero Slate Podcast #6. Such as Daniel Cudmore to return as Colossus, the only X-Man in the script, and that would be great to see him come back! More includes Blind Al, Ajax, and others. With this being all (very likely) speculation, we think the backbones of this script are still there.
Lastly, it will be rewritten to an extent. Why? To make it work within Fox’s X-Men universe, accommodate a small budget, and ultimately change the rating if need be. Why less than an R? Because, thats what studios may do with three X-Men movies next year. We can only hope Ryan Reynolds gets his wish of that R rating too.
Anyways, if you’ve read the script, you can tell its zany, inappropriate, and above all, Deadpool. Let us know how you feel about it and if you’ll see him on February 12, 2016!
