Daniel Way, the writer of the current series of Deadpool comics, will also draft the story of the video game DigitalSpy reports.
“Hey suits, listen up ’cause I’ve got some pretty sweet news to break,” the statement says. “I, Deadpool, today announced that I’ve…(ahem…we’ve)…yes, right…WE’VE decided to make a kick-butt, butt-kicking new video game based on the awesome-ing-ist super hero ever known to man (and woman, if you know what we’re sayin’) starring yours truly, ME, DEADPOOL.”
The press blurb continues:
‘ “We weren’t actually planning on making a Deadpool game,” said Peter Della Penna, formerly Head of High Moon Studios and now second in command. “But,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.” ‘
Deadpool will be released on undisclosed platforms in 2013. A movie is also on the way.
