Netflix is no doubt is becoming bigger and bigger and with that being said, they are recruiting big time people in the game but they also are starting to recruit big time directors. Michael bay is one of those directors. Here we have a big budget film which the budget is around 150 million and the film was lead by Ryan Reynolds and even have Dave Franco in the film as well though his character doesn’t survive long, sadly he is the first member to get killed and that is pretty much it for him with this film.
Now the plot is basic which you can understand for a Michael bay film, basically you have people who have fallen off the face of the earth or ” die” and become “ghosts” as they call themselves and they go off and fight crimes to make the world a better place. The group is led by Ryan who goes by the name of one, which is the rule of the group. they don’t know anyone’s real name they just go by numbers which means they don’t have ties to each other and that means less emotions when someone dies. Though that aspect goes out the door because 4 teammates start to date each other which One finds out later. In short the group loses just one member which One recruits another member and he becomes number 7. they train for what will be their first true mission and in the end they succeed and part of the rules are when the mission is over they part ways until they are needed again and so they do.
Now like I said this a bay film so it had no real story but his bread and butter is the action. Now with that being said and with the budget the action scenes were a big step in the right direction for Netflix. I know they operate a little different because I often think how would this film do making money if it was release in theaters. Well From a 150 million dollar budget and the time it was actually released and most of the reviews I would say you would be looking at around 500 million dollar movie which would make it some what of a successful film. Now the question becomes how would I rate this film? With everything I just said I do think it wasn’t a bad film. The story doesn’t make you over think about the plot and it’s simple and the action was there enough to overcome everything else. In the end I am giving it 70 percent. It was average film in my eyes, now am I curious for a sequel, yes I am but we shall!

The Rock has become a staple in the action world and comedy world of acting, and let’s be honest he has become very good at it. That is even more clear in the last few years but we have to ask ourselves when will the Rock join the MCU and who could he play? This topic hit the fan when Ryan Reynolds made a cameo in the Hobbs and Shaw movie. Which to be honest will spawned another film which Reynolds could have an extended role and that got the co creator of Deadpool wanting the Rock as a hero in the next Deadpool film.
Now we know there will be a Deadpool three, what we don’t know is when that film is coming but having the Rock in it would no doubt send the possible series final into new heights with showing the bad ass in THE Rock, we would no doubt laugh our ass off with this film. But who would the Rock play? What about Garrison Kane. Now Kane was suppose to be in the first but due to budget concerns with the CGI that is required, they cut him from the script. We know now that Deadpool has grew in budget and if Disney see’s the value in adding The Rock plus the money for the CGI, they will make it happen.
I for one would love to see the Rock in an MCU movie, I know he is suppose to be playing Black Adam in the DCEU but we don’t know when that will happen. Not to mention he can handle the work load of doing two movies if the filming schedule were at the same time. Will this actually happen though? I don’t know to be honest adding the Rock would no doubt be one of the biggest moves to the MCU since well adding Robert Downey Jr though that came in time.
Still this could be years away with the fact that an X-Force movie is being planned first at least that was before Disney bought fox century. Fox’s planned was to do a X-Force movie then Ryan would take a break from being Deadpool before he jumped back into the role for the third solo film. So in theory Kane could show up in the X-force movie since he was apart of the group at one point.
I know this could never happen but it is something to get excited for well we wait. Because as I stated there is nothing actually planned right now for DeadPool. I have ask you would you be excited for the Rock to show up In Deadpool?
