Wow, tough crowd!
Quoted from DCFAN:
I hope the supposed insiders are wrong. Gomez is hit and miss as his track record shows with a large body of work. ZY has been a home run. The code will likely depend on which programmer gets the game and to some degree how well the game sells. Superhero games have not sold as well as some other titles in the last several years.
Well, thankfully, DP is NOT a super hero.
Quoted from TheLaw:
Don't know anything aboot Deadpool either, but I've learned from 1 movie he's a smart ass that murders the shit out of people and hey, that sounds good to me.
Buuuuuut the REAL question is what's happening with the screen? The movie at least gives you all the media you need, basically, to create that screen package. Now without that, I'm really interested to see what they do with it.
This actually ties in to the DMD vs TV thread quite nicely.
I would imagine we'll see some anime type filler stuff, and comic book clips floating about. More importantly though, will this give Stern direction in creating order from chaos when using these LCD/LED screens to provide relevant, constant information to the player.
Quoted from Rum-Z:
I'd always prefer the theme be based on the comics versus the movies, as movies can date themselves much quicker, especially in movie franchises (Spiderman & Batman) that don't know when to call it quits and end up making many movies with many different actors as lead characters. Like now, I'd rather have a comic book based Spiderman instead of having to see Toby Maguire's face on my pinball machine. My apology to Toby Maguire, Toby Maquire's Mom, and all of Toby Maguire's fans on Pinside.
Well, except you would have the Deadpool in costume, which is so well done in the movies. I don't see the need for Ryan Reynolds face to appear, which would actually keep this pin always faithful to the comic. As far as playfield, yeah, maybe keep that drawn art with reference to comic characters, not actual actors.
I was thinking about this during DP2 in the theaters. It's brilliant to have the full body costume (with complete mask) as anyone could really play the part acting wise, it is just a matter of voice over. Same goes for the translite/screen image.
I get your point though, a George Clooney Batman just ain't cutting it in today's pinball world.
