    Default Re: Hot Toys Movie Deadpool (2016)???

With this being a masked character it shouldn't matter and if they want to include a Reynolds sculpt it probably would be easier to try and clear the rights to one actor's likeness as opposed to numerous ones. Unless Marvel puts a hold on Fox releasing merchandise for the film I don't see why Hot Toys wouldn't do this figure.
    Excellent point that I hadn't considered! There's not necessarily a need to give us the unmasked "Wade" head here.

Thus, likeness rights have to be negotiated individually leading to fewer products being made. This is probably due, in large measure, to the fact as I understand it that the profits would be shared with Marvel proper and not the film studio in the case of Fox.

    Does this mean Deadpool is unlikely? I don't know. Less likely than the next Iron Man, but considering that he looks more like what Chan would go after than, well, nearly any X-Men movie character yet (as 99% of those have lame, non-comic-like outfits), I think the chances are decent.
    This^. As a huge Minimates collector, I specifically remember reading a post from PR rep Zach Oats stating they were the only folks making First Class full cast figures because Mates do not require approvals due to the fact Minimates lack a nose therefore they can bypass that whole thing. Then he went on stating that between the cast and the studio approval will not happen. Jackman has like a franchise agreement or something.
    He thinks the carpet pissers did this?
    Well Dude, we just don't know.

    Insane fan base is domestic only. Most people abroad haven't heard of this guy and certainly his brand of humor doesn't translate well in non-English speaking countries. Again it's still a possibility this gets released, the movie just has to do very well in the box office and pull a GotG. HT's track record with Fox's Marvel properties is also not promising, as others have pointed out.

    I'm not sure about our neighbors, but Deadpool is quite popular in the Philippines.

    The points raised regarding the likeness approvals/license makes a lot of sense. But what if -- Marvel/Disney does some powertripping over HT, keeping them from trying to pursue this license? Marvel/Disney seems that they're doing everything in their power to kill the properties they don't have movie rights to in other media. The X-men seems to have a questionable future in the upcoming Secret Wars event, while they have already killed Logan, ending the Fantastic Four, and made sure that the latest video games won't feature characters from either properties.

    Personally I'd be frustrated as I want the movie Deadpool figure to complement the SSC Deadpool. I like SSC Deadpool but movie version looks more faithful to the comic.

    Agreed.

    Would really love for this to happen. Beyond the thousands of custom Deadpool figures out there, many people cosplay as him and even go out of their way to make videos of it. Not to mention how he's been heavily marketed in a lot of Marvel video games, and with the Ultimate Spider-man cartoon featuring him as a recurring character, it has also helped in introducing him to a wider audience.

    Regardless of whether or not HT takes the plunge, I think people are underestimating Deadpool's current hype and popularity.

    This. Got into a store like Hot Topic here in the US. You see Avengers and Deadpool. You don't see a ton of solo Wolverine shirts. It's all red and black. Shirts. Hats. Jackets. Belts. I even saw a Deadpool poster in an arts and crafts store.

    Walmarts around here have more Deadpool clothing than Avengers stuff (in the adult section). I had no idea he was that popular until I started looking for Avengers merch. Hot Topic and Spencer's is just filled with his stuff too.
