Could Deadpool be the next comic-to-game crossover?

Just because developer Raven Software has finished work on X-Men Origins: Wolverine doesn’t mean they’re done exploring the Marvel universe – they’d love to do a game starring the “Merc with a Mouth,” Deadpool, according to project lead Dan Vondrak.

“We’re huge fans of Deadpool,” said Vondrak in an interview with UGO. “We love the character. His smartass attitude. So that’d be the guy we’d probably go after.”

There’s no denying that the wisecracking mercenary, known for his constant pop-culture references and willingness to break the fourth wall, is one of the coolest comic book characters of all time. Which is why we’re relieved to learn that should the company pursue this project, they would be using the comics and not the recently released movie as their muse. Tactfully avoiding his continuity-butchering theatrical debut, Vondrak simply states that he likes his Deadpool “the way he is in the comics,” and so do we. So do we.
