The idea of it in my head where it turns out really good doesn't involve it needed to be rated R but maybe it would be and I'm forgetting some key things not allowed in pg 13 flicks.
To me Deadpool is a different animal cuz he's much more than just action and violence.
You specifically said banging a bunch of random chicks so I think they'd have to somewhat touch on that and while not being graphic, having him go in a room and the door closes and the audience implies he banged the chick is somewhat lame.
I guess they can get away with similar violence as Wolverine, just omit the blood from the scenes. PG13 means you are still trying to appeal to kids and everything he'll have to do (just based on your descriptions) doesn't seem PG13 appropriate anyways? I really don't know. Is he the type of guy who will learn from his mistakes in the end and become a hero? If not, will he end the film as a bad guy?
In the Venom, the pay-off is he goes against Spiderman in a sequel and in the comics, he actually became a good anti-hero. Not sure if that's Namor or enough of the public even know enough about him to care really. I really don't know what Namors been up to lately though so I can't say which way the story would/should/could go.
They don't gotta show him banging all of the chicks. I wouldn't even have to show any. Just heavily imply that he did with a few
Like he meets a chick or saves them and the very next scene is them in bed post-coitus or him leaving as she's naked under the sheets. Even if it was just showing the door close all you'd need to hear him say is "IMPERIUS REX!" and we'd know the deal
but that might be too jokey.
You do have a point though, Namor isn't really a hero and could only be seen as such when he somehow finds himself on a team with other heroes like the Avengers. All other times he's an anti-hero or villain and what I'd have in mind for him to do isn't a movie that's appealing to kids. Some teenagers? Sure but not kids. So it'd be in the same way The Wolverine wasn't really geared towards kids but they could get by watching it.
I'm just thinking out loud with this. I don't even know who owns Namor's movie rights and like I said I don't see him meshing well with the Marvel cinematic universe unless he's gonna be an outright villain (and then maybe later turn ally). There'd really be no huge draw to get a Namor solo movie going like I said in my post when I brought up the comparison to Aquaman but then again I never really thought there'd be an avenue for the likes of Thor, Cap, and Iron Man to have successful movies either. If Namor had Marvel studios backing it could turn out well as far as getting fans but I don't know if the story would do the character justice. FTR, I don't even like Namor but from a movie perspective I do see the potential in one being made about him.

But, I was also contacted by another source, who requested anonymity, and he told me Justice League is a go, and will be released one year after Batman Vs. Superman.
As for the cliffhanger rumor? General Napier, tells me that's very much true. Cliffhangers, will actually be one key component in WB's master plan to dethrone Marvel Studios. WB realizes that Marvel films are famous for their mid- and post-credits scenes, and have no interest in copying from Marvel's playbook. WB's plan, is to end each of their films with a cliffhanger, setting up the next film in their cinematic universe. WB also wants to do short films for their lesser known characters. These short films would be played at the end of each film. That's a pretty interesting way of taking on Marvel's trademark post-credits scenes.
Given this has been pushed back to 2016 and JL I guess 2017 and MOS didn't end in a cliffhanger what's stopping Marvel from having Ant-Man or Avengers 2 or something else end in a cliffhanger and **** all over DC/WB's plans for this cliffhanger thing as their signature move?
I mean Feige could just say we've been planning this from the start for all of our phase 2 and 3 films and if he did it first that's just more egg on DC's/WB's face Edited by Master Zik - 1/19/14 at 10:49pm
