"You have only ever seen me amongst the Order, or under Dumbledore’s protection at Hogwarts! You don’t know how most of the wizarding world sees creatures like me! When they know of my affliction, they can barely talk to me! Don’t you see what I’ve done? Even her own family is disgusted by our marriage, what parents want their only daughter to marry a werewolf? And the child—the child—”
#THIS SCENE MEANT SO MUCH TO ME READING THE BOOK!#Like I remember where I was when I read it#And I remember feeling sort of like Harry did#I always looked up to Lupin in the books#he was wise you know?#He was a role model#someone to look up to#and then you read that part and it’s a realization#it’s a realization that adults — all of them even the seemingly wisest — have faults#they are imperfect#they are just people#Remus Lupin was just a person#with insecurities and fears and moments of true stupidity#this scene was so important and not just for plot but for meaning\#Harry’s grown up#And after this scene I felt like I’d grown up some too

Well, it looks like it’s official - Fox has announced that the Deadpool movie will be released February 12th, 2016. For fans of the character, this could be a time of worry - Hollywood is known for screwing up weird, quirky comics like Deadpool…especially Deadpool, actually, since they’ve already messed him up once.
But we think the Deadpool movie is worth getting excited over - and here’s why.
2. The Script Is Apparently Great
While we don’t know that this is the still the script that’s in play (these things get rewritten and rewritten constantly during the course of development, switching writers like a game of musical chairs), the last known draft by Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick was supposedly great. To give you some idea of what these guys are capable of, they wrote Zombieland - one of the funniest and most inventive action-comedies of the last decade. Plus, it includes one of the best cameos ever committed to film period. For those of you who haven’t seen it, get on that FAST.
Anyways, the script - it sounds fantastic. Cinema Blend put up a review of it earlier this year (which they had to remove due to copyright complaints from 20th Century Fox), and here’s what they had to say (prior to it being taken down, that is):
"In it’s best moments, [reading the ‘Deadpool’ script] is like reading ‘Van Wilder’ meets ‘Kill Bill’, a genius mix of insane dark comedy and ridiculous over the top violence the likes of which we’ve never seen in any other superhero movie before… With the right director and Reynolds in the lead, this script has the potential to be the ‘Dark Knight’ of R-rated superhero movies."
Apparently, there’s also a nice couple digs at X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which would be appreciated.
Of course, the review is just one outlet’s take on a script that may not even be in play any longer, but given these were the guys who wrote the test footage that was met with such positive reaction, 20th Century Fox would be pretty foolish to cut them and their vision loose at this point.
