"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."

Daniel Way is also known for his work on the comic Wolverine: Origins and Hit-Monkey, the latter of which is being adapted into a video game by High Moon Studios and Activision, it was announced earlier in the month.

Deadpool is scheduled to release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next year. The game was revealed at this year's San Diego Comic-Con during Marvel's video game panel.
