Awesome, thank you. Whew thats a relief. So is the general rule that its more so about the rights regarding the rig itself more than the character its depicting? Just asking for future reference, theres some other really cool ones I want to try in the future.

It's a little hazy there, in general though, I wouldn't go out of your way to use characters that are iconic like Deadpool.  He moves very specifically and the performance will need to fit.  You've essentially pigeon-holed yourself into the performance aspect of things, if he doesn't behave like Deadpool, you'll disengage your audience immediately.
