Deadpool has found yet another video game to bring his wise-cracking personality, insane weapon, ability skillset, and delicious chimichangas. The Merc with a Mouth will find himself at home, taking up residence at The Abbey and making friends with fellow Midnight Suns members.
While many are delighted to see Deadpool interact with his “best friends” Wolverine and Spider-Man, not many will know it has been more than four years since Deadpool last appeared in a video game and a decade since Deadpool’s solo video game. But what’s even more impressive is that developer Firaxis Games recruited the character’s long-time voice actor to slip back into his blood red fill body tactical suit.
Acclaimed voice actor Nolan North returned to voice the fourth-wall-breaking character adding yet another performance credit to his celebrated career. The American voice actor is best known for his multiple appearances in films, television series, and video games, including Crystal Dynamics’ The Avengers, God of War, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and Batman: Arkham City. North has voiced Wade Wilson / Deadpool in several Marvel video games, including Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, Stern Pinball: Deadpool, and Lego Marvel Super Heroes.
However, North is most known for voicing Nathan Drake in the Uncharted video game series and as David in The Last of Us. North’s recent appearance as the Merc with the Mouth started as a social media campaign last October in which he rallied players to get Deadpool to become a member of the Midnight Suns. While he eventually took over the game’s social media accounts, which saw him provide game codes, art challenges, and poke fun at the Midnight Suns.
