In August, after the launch of More heroes 3, the creator and director of the Goichi Suda series, better known as Suda51, has admitted that he would love to work on a video game based on a Marvel property. Among the characters he named was dead Pool, the fourth Merc with a wall-breaking mouth that Suda said would be a perfect fit for Grasshopper Manufacture.
A lot of people seem to agree that a Suda Deadpool game would make a lot of sense given the slight similarities between Deadpool and No more heroesprotagonist Travis Touchdown, as well as Suda with experience with over-the-top action games with bloody violence and a metacomedy that frequently breaks the fourth wall. It turns out that Suda was approached by Activision at one point to specifically create a Deadpool game.
In a recent interview with VGC, Suda explains that Activision contacted him over 10 years ago with the proposal, shortly after the release of the first one. No more heroes Game. Obviously, the project never saw the light of day, it fizzled out very early in the planning stages. Suda says he had some cool ideas for the game but didn’t go into specifics.
Activision released an action video game Deadpool in 2013, which was developed by High Moon Studios (the studio behind Transformers: War for Cybertron and its sequel Cybertron Fall) for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. It received mixed reviews at the time, with common reviews being its repetitive gameplay and camera.
It was ported to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2015 to coincide with the 2016 dead Pool movie but has since been pulled from digital storefronts, along with all of Activision’s other Marvel video games, due to licensing issues. Deadpool hasn’t had a solo video game since, only making appearances in Marvel crossover games like Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.
Disney has become more open to the idea of conceding its properties to other game developers. On the Marvel side, fans have already been able to enjoy two Spider-Man games from Insomniac (a third of which will be released in 2023), that of Square Enix. Avengers, and the above Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. The future of Marvel video games also looks bright, between Midnight suns and a Wolverine game from Insomniac.
So a Suda Deadpool game is not outside the realm of possibility. Deadpool movie actor Ryan Reynolds even liked a tweet about the original report, which Suda is delighted with:
“I actually didn’t know he liked one of my tweets, it’s great to find out! I’ve been a huge fan of the Deadpool movies, of course, as well as the other Ryan Reynolds movies, so it’s really cool to hear that.
“The fact that Ryan Reynolds himself liked one of my Tweets makes me feel like I’ve taken a hundred steps forward since then. ”
