Deadpool comic author to write the game
Activision brings in the big guns
In an effort to up the quality of the cash-in-on-the-movie superhero video games we’ve had in the last few years, Activision has taken on Daniel Way, author of the Deadpool comics, to write the game as well.
In a press release supposedly written by Deadpool himself, head of developer High Moon Studios Della Penna claimed, “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.”
“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!”
Referencing some of High Moon’s previous work, Deadpool said, “If High Moon can make an amazing game about big transforming robots look cool, then they can surely make me look amazing in a third-person action video game,” referring to the studios Transformers titles.
Deadpool’s jokes and rogue character have made him a favourite amongst comic book fans, putting pressure on High Moon to deliver a believable incarnation.
