Stern announced a new pinball machine, Deadpool is becoming a pinball machine. It will be based on the comic book due to Ryan Reynolds being really expensive to get for voice work. Going with the comic book also allows for more things that have not been in the movies.
Very little has been revealed about the game so I am going to go over what I think will be included. Expect Deadpool to make fun of you if the ball drains quickly. Most likely with colourful language not suitable for everyone unless you turn it off. Deadpool is known for being self-aware meaning there will be mentions about playing a pinball machine and maybe bad mouthing other Stern machines. I would like to see Deadpool start playing automatically if you do not launch the ball fast enough. You might hear “Hey I already beat your score” if you score is low. There would have to be a setting to turn autoplay off or having to make a shot in order to keep the points. Maybe it will make one shot than traps the ball for a bit before draining it. Another idea could be a video mode where Deadpool plays a pinball machine so you would be playing a video game pinball while playing pinball.
