Deadpool's Example Could "Ruin Franchises For Generations" – Brian Bendis At #InStoreKickOff #ConKickOff2016

2016-03-05 (60) At the Marvel panel at the Instore Convention Kick-Off event, streaming to comic stores across America, the question of the Deadpool movie was brought up and what effect that might have on other movies.

As the man who brought R-Rated comics to the modern Marvel superhero universe with Alias, now adapted as the R-rated Jessica Jones Netflix show Brian Bendis is worried that there will be some poor decisions based on Deadpool's movie success that will "ruin franchises for generations". He expressed concern for Hollywood deciding that "this is what people want" – and then giving them nothing but, especially with comic characters unsuitable for that approach.

Tom Brevoort expressed that the voice of each individual character should be preserved. The idea of Wolverine as an R-Rated film didn't rankle too much but Bendis expressed that he preferred a range of tones that still as room for a walking talking raccoon.
