Although Deadpool was tricked into believing that his looks could be restored, is there still any hope of fixing it?

Ways Deadpool's face has been fixed:

  1. Cursed to look like Thom Cruz by Loki. He eventually fought to be uncursed. enter image description here

  2. His Healing factor was messed with by Weapon X again. This did not end well. He ended up a puddle when he didn't do what they wanted. enter image description here

  3. Removed the super-cancer and healing factor at the same time. Also did not end well. Technically died.

Reducing the healing factor allows the super cancer to take over and slowly kill him. Reduce the cancer, the healing factor over compensates and kills him. Deadpool's face is a result of an never ending battle between healing factor and super-cancer, and normally changes often, not just a permanent scar.

As in any comic book character, and movie, it all depends on whatever magical cure, or magical cure they come up with. Yes they can fix the face, if they wanted to, for plot reasons. But the established character needs the scarred face to be who he is.

While Ajax Francis says there is no hope, that isn't the final word. The movie production team can change that if they want.

    What exactly is the distinction between "magical cure" and "magical cure"? – Anthony Grist Mar 2 '16 at 9:58
  • @anthonygrist super science bs, and regular magic bs, both possible. And that's avoiding the Clarke sufficiently advanced science and all that, inherit in some comics/comic movies (cough cough Thor). – cde Mar 2 '16 at 10:02
  • Okay, so the former is a scientific cure that comes out of nowhere ("magical") and the latter is a cure that's actually magical (in the sense that it's done using magic). Got it. – Anthony Grist Mar 2 '16 at 10:08
