During a talk at Google, Ryan Reynolds revealed that the taxi driver character "Dopinder" was named after "a really cool guy" he knew in elementary school, who died when he was hit by lightning. It was meant to be a tribute to him.

In an interview, writer Rhett Reese stated that Negasonic Teenage Warhead wasn't always intended to be in the film. Other X-Men such as Cannonball were considered, but they eventually used Negasonic Teenage Warhead because they "liked her name better."

Ryan Reynolds has said that Deadpool will be the last comic book character he will ever portray. However, he doesn't object to future Deadpool sequels and/or cameos.

On April Fool's Day 2015, Ryan Reynolds posted on Twitter that the film would be rated PG-13, which prompted fan backlash as the Deadpool character often swears and commits acts of graphic violence. Later that day, Reynolds confirmed that it was a prank and the film would be R rated.

Ryan Reynolds was allowed to keep his Deadpool costume after filming had completed. (Technically he didn't ask to, nor did he give anyone the chance to take it from him.) When 20th Century Fox found out about this, they honestly didn't care and just let him keep it.

The Deadpool costume originally had a muscle layer underneath but it had to be removed: Ryan Reynolds was so muscular, the costume was not only too tight for him, but it made him look overlarge.

While filming, Ryan Reynolds visited sick kids, via Make-A-Wish foundation, as Deadpool.

Ryan Reynolds' full body makeup took eight hours to apply. Once it was on, he was not able to sit or lie down.

Ryan Reynolds has said that there are over one hundred references throughout the entire film, including easter eggs, pop-culture references, cameos, and direct hits at other Marvel films.

After Vanessa and Wade have skee-balled and are trading in their winning tickets for prizes, a large stuffed dog wearing a Deadpool attire can be seen hanging behind the counter. This refers to Dogpool, a canine version of Deadpool from an alternate universe.

Became the first R-rated movie to have a three-day opening weekend of over $100 million at the U.S. Box Office. While films such as The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Passion of the Christ (2004) had earned well over $100 million by the end of their first full weekend of release, those movies had opened wide on the Wednesdays before the official opening weekend; 'Deadpool' only had some 7 pm to 10 pm screenings before its Friday wide release.

The film was shot in 48 days.

In the scenes where he is dealing with the stalker pizza delivery guy, Wade is wearing a T-shirt with a portrait of Bea Arthur on the front. This is a reference to the fact that in the comics, Deadpool has an affection for Arthur and The Golden Girls (1985). According to Ryan Reynolds on the Blu-ray commentary track, it cost $10,000 (which went to charity) to get approval to use the image.

This film had a lower budget than any of the X-Men, Iron Man, Avengers, or Captain America movies.

In the trailer and in the film, Wade Wilson requests, "Don't make the super suit green--or animated!" This is a reference to Ryan Reynolds' previous role as the DC superhero Green Lantern (2011), in which, as stated, the green suit was a special effect rather than an actual costume for Reynolds to put on.

Deadpool pokes even more fun at the costume in a deleted scene on the Blu-Ray copy of the movie.

When 20th Century Fox refused to pay the writers of the film, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, for onset input, Ryan Reynolds paid out of his own pocket for them to be onset to look over the film. Reese stated, "We were onset every day. Interestingly, Ryan wanted us there, we were on the project for six years. It was really a core creative team of us, Ryan, and director Tim Miller. Fox, interestingly, wouldn't pay for us to be on set. Ryan Reynolds paid out of his own money, out of his own pocket."

In the Marvel comic books, Vanessa is a shapeshifting mutant that goes by the alias of Copycat. She homages her comic book version when she mentions that she has "played a lot of roles."

Ryan Reynolds was involved with revising the script with the writers. Cast members were allowed to improvise in some scenes.

Through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, 13-year-old Connor McGrath, a terminally ill fan from Edmonton, requested to attend the special event for Deadpool (2016) in January, which turned out to be one of the two special screenings in New York and Los Angeles for the fans. He couldn't make it, due to the severity of his illness. Ryan Reynolds heard his story, traveled to Edmonton, and surprised him with a private special screening of the film. Reynolds said the boy was the first person ever to see the film. They kept in touch until Connor's passing a few months later. Reynolds paid tribute to him on his social-media pages.

In the comics, Negasonic Teenage Warhead is actually a telepath and precognitive mutant. Her abilities were changed for the film due to the fact that the writers thought that by having explosive powers, it would fit more with her name.

Ryan Reynolds describes Deadpool's "breaking the fourth wall" ability as a reflection of current times, "I think Deadpool's coming along at the right time, because it's speaking to that generation that has seen all these comic-book films and enjoyed them all; it's speaking to them as though the guy in that red suit is one of them. It's like watching a DVD commentary by someone who's got some pop-culture savvy and is kind of funny and a little obnoxious and is saying the things that you wouldn't say."

When Deadpool saws off his hand and blood sprays in Colossus's face, he says, "Are you there God? It's me, Margaret." This is the title of a coming of age novel by Judy Blume wherein the central theme of the story is a teenage girl getting her first period.

Wyre was initially going to appear as a henchman to Ajax/Francis, but was cut primarily for budgetary reasons as his powers required complicated visual effects. Cable was considered for an appearance as well, but it was decided that he would work better in the sequel, in which he appears as a main character.

There was going to be a running gag involving Wade and the other bar patrons betting money on how Amy Winehouse would die. This was cut because Winehouse actually did die sometime after the script was written, making the joke both irrelevant and possibly insensitive.

When Gina Carano did the junkyard fight scene, she was more worried about spiders than anything else, even her stunts.

After being captured by Colossus on the bridge, Deadpool is told he is being taken to the professor, in reference to the leader of the X-Men, Charles "Professor X" Xavier. Deadpool responds, "Which one, McAvoy or Stewart?" as in James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart, both of whom have portrayed Professor X in previous X-Men movies, including simultaneously in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).

The film was released in February 2016, exactly 25 years after Deadpool's first appearance in New Mutants #98.

In the opening title sequence, a wallet can be seen floating through the air. As it does, a photo comes out of Ryan Reynolds in his Green Lantern (2011) costume.

Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has been open about the fact that he took the name for the character from the final Dirty Harry movie, The Dead Pool (1988).

In the opening credits, there is a People Magazine floating around with the headline "Ryan Reynolds: Sexiest Man Alive." It is an actual issue of the magazine that featured Reynolds as the "Sexiest Man Alive" (2010).

On Halloween, Ryan Reynolds dressed up as Deadpool. Footage of this can be seen on YouTube and is included in the special features section on the Blu-Ray copy of the movie.

Deadpool mentions that he looks like he was "bitten by a radioactive shar-pei." In one issue of the Deadpool comic, Deadpool states that he looks like a cross between Ryan Reynolds and a shar-pei.

The opening credits was originally a placeholder, but Tim Miller found the parody titles funny enough to put in the movie. As a bonus, due to no actual names being in it, the filmmakers were not required to abide by guild rules about crew and actor credits.

In the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), Deadpool doesn't wear his trademark red costume but appears as a disfigured, shirtless, bald man with his mouth sewn shut. He also possesses two retractable katanas embedded in his forearms. As a reference to this prior film, there is a scene that briefly features this version of Deadpool as an action figure.

To prepare for the film Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson/Deadpool) hired a swords master to train him.

Ryan Reynolds has confirmed this is his favorite film of his own as he got to improvise in several scenes.

Negasonic Teenage Warhead was named after a song by the rock band Monster Magnet.

Early in the film, Deadpool has an altercation with a pizza delivery guy. The pizza boxes he is delivering are marked "Feige's Favourites," a nod to Marvel President Kevin Feige.

Producer Simon Kinberg stated in an interview that Olivia Munn auditioned for the role of Vanessa Carlysle, and that audition resulted in Munn being cast as Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016).

This is Ryan Reynolds's fifth time in a comic book movie, and his second time playing Wade Wilson. He was previously Marvel's Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity (2004), Wade in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), Hal Jordan in DC's Green Lantern (2011) and Nick Walker in Dark Horse's R.I.P.D. (2013).

Despite the R rating, Ryan Reynolds had entertained children sick with cancer while shooting this film and put some of them in small roles in the film.

The taxi cab, operated by Dopinder, that transports Deadpool to his fight scenes has an advertising banner atop the roof saying, "Need a Hero."

Grossed $132.8 million in its domestic opening weekend, becoming the first R-rated film to open over $100 million and breaking the twelve-year-old R-rated weekend record held by The Matrix Reloaded (2003).

China refused to grant a certificate so the film could be shown in the country. While China's film import market is best known for supporting or blocking films based on how they present Chinese characters and stories (where applicable), that was not a factor with "Deadpool" China also often censors out extreme violence, profanity, and sex from movies before release, and this film contains a large amount of all three. While the Chinese censors did consider such an edit here, they ultimately decided that the cuts needed to make "Deadpool" into a general audience picture would make it incomprehensible, and thus decided not to have the film in Chinese theaters at all.

Ryan Reynolds is the first actor to be nominated for a Golden Globe for playing a Marvel character in this film.

Instead of conventional opening credits, the producers, main actors, writers, and director are all identified at the beginning of the movie by epithets such as "some douchebag's film," "produced by asshats," starring "God's perfect idiot" (accompanied by a shot of Ryan Reynolds's "Sexiest Man Alive" People Magazine cover) "a hot chick" (Morena Baccarin), "a British villain" (Ed Skrein), "a gratuitous cameo" (Stan Lee), and "a CGI character" (Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus), written by "the real heroes here" (Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick) and directed by "an overpaid tool" (Tim Miller).

Ryan Reynolds wife Blake Lively is often on planes where Deadpool happens to be playing, which she compared to torture because of the love scenes. She said their daughter hugs the screen and says "Dada" thinking it's FaceTime.

The business card used by the Recruiter (Jed Rees) reads only 555-0199. This is the same number used as Lester Burnham's business line in American Beauty (1999). Wade Wilson makes constant reference to the Recruiter being a pedophile.

After the film's success, Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, and Robert Downey Jr. had congratulated Ryan Reynolds over Twitter. Evans and Downey in particular even went as far as to jokingly fight over Reynolds' team affiliation for their film, Captain America: Civil War (2016).

The Starbucks cup seen at the beginning of the film had "Rob L" written on it, a nod to Rob Liefeld.

Ryan Reynolds describes Deadpool's "breaking the fourth wall" ability as a reflection of his wit, "He's funny and acerbic and a little bit of a head case. But he's also not trying to be liked, he's intentionally trying to annoy everyone."

The pizza delivery stalker scene is taken directly from issue #10 of the 2008 run of Deadpool's comic, the only difference being that in the movie it took place before Wade became Deadpool, while in the comic he was already suited up.

Ryan Reynolds stated in an interview that the very first thing that they put in the script was "Angel Of The Morning" by Juice Newton. This was the song used in the opening credits of the movie.

The shot-up targets in Deadpool's bedroom are RCMP firearms qualification targets. Ryan Reynolds' father and brother are Mounties.

Tim Miller's feature directorial debut.

The oddly named strip club in the film, No.5 Orange (read as Number Five Orange), is a real strip club in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Daniel Cudmore, who portrayed Colossus in X2 (2003) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), turned down reprising the role in this film. He was replaced with Andre Tricoteux. Cudmore was unhappy with the idea of only doing motion capture work while another actor dubbed over his lines.

Early drafts of the script featured a joke where it would have been revealed that Deadpool's mask was actually a store-bought Spider-Man mask that had been turned inside out. This was presumably cut due to potential legal issues (as Spider-Man's film rights were owned by Sony and later Disney).

Ed Skrein (Ajax/Francis) is a massive comic book fan, so being able to do a movie like this was his dream come true.

There were plans to make a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), where Deadpool would return. However, due to the mixed reviews and poor box office performance of that film, the sequel was dropped and revised into this quasi-reboot.

The castle that is used for the Xavier school in this movie is also used in Smallville (2001), Disney's Descendants (2015), Arrow (2012) and Big Time Movie (2012).

"The city that rhymes with fun" is the unofficial slogan for Regina, Saskatchewan. The real slogan is "The Queen City". Ryan Reynolds also filmed the movie Just Friends (2005) in Regina.

When Wade and Vanessa wish each other "Happy Lent", Wade can be seen reading the autobiography of Mario Lopez.

This is the first X-Men movie where neither Wolverine nor Professor X appear in the flesh. At most, both are mentioned, and Wade wears a cutout of Hugh Jackman's face as a mask.

Ryan Reynolds was already a huge fan of the character Deadpool long before this movie was considered by the studio, and read the comics for nearly a decade. He got his chance to play Wade Wilson in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), and deeply dislikes the way that film portrayed him. He decided to produce and finance part of this film as both a way to satisfy his own desire to play his favorite comic book character, and as an apology to other fans who were disappointed by the previous film.

When Deadpool first meets Negasonic Teenage Warhead he asks Colossus if she's his sidekick, to which Colossus responds that she is a trainee. Marvel Comics founder Stan Lee is known to dislike hero sidekicks.

The film's working title was "Wham!", named after George Michael's former group. Wham's album, Make It Big, and George Michael's solo song, "Careless Whisper", appeared in the movie.

According to Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool is definitely pansexual.

Counting the opening credits, there are a total of 23 fourth-wall breaks in the film.

Ed Skrein, who plays Ajax/Francis, describes the film as a "revenge story from both sides."

The highest grossing R-rated film worldwide with a gross of $775 million, eclipsing the $742 million gross of the previous record holder The Matrix Reloaded (2003). In the United States it is the second highest grossing R-rated film, with a gross of $363 million, behind The Passion of the Christ (2004) ($370 million).

Before the climax fight, Deadpool says, "Time to make the chimi-fuckin'-changas!" Chimichangas are Deadpool's favorite food in the comics.

When Deadpool breaks his hand after attempting to punch Colossus, he exclaims, "Oh, Canada." This is a reference to Wade Wilson's Canadian origin and Ryan Reynolds himself is also Canadian. "O Canada" is the national anthem of Canada.

To prepare for her role as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Brianna Hildebrand trained in Muay Thai for a few months.

Marvel characters Cannonball and Garrison Kane were deleted from subsequent rewrites of the script, with the latter specifically being omitted due to budgetary concerns over the required CGI for his cybernetic arms, and the former being omitted due to concerns he would have been a "stupid hick character."

At one point in the movie, Deadpool says, "I'm just a boy, standing in front of a girl." This is a nod to Notting Hill (1999), where the line is reversed.

Nicieza St. is an exit on the highway listed. This is a homage to Deadpool writer/co-creator Fabian Nicieza.

Director Tim Miller fell in love with the song "Mera Joota Hai Japani" from the Indian film Shree 420 (1955) when he had heard it at a New Zealand pub. During filming, he thought of using the same Indian song in the film for Dopinder's cab scene.

The film's domestic opening weekend gross set a new record as the largest opening weekend ever for a first-time director. Before making this film, Tim Miller had previously directed two short films, Aunt Luisa (2002) and Rockfish (2003), and worked in visual effects for various video games. The previous record holder was Chris Miller, co-director of Shrek the Third (2007), which opened with $121.6 million.

When Weasel and Wade are trying to come up with a nickname for Wilson, one of the names said is "Scaredevil". This is clearly a reference to another Marvel character, Daredevil, who Deadpool has come into contact with in the comics.

Like co-star Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin has played both DC and Marvel Comics characters. Before portraying Vanessa Carlysle, she voiced the character of Talia Al-Ghul in the DC Universe Animated Original Movie Son of Batman (2014), a role she reprises in Batman: Bad Blood (2016). Baccarin also played Dr. Leslie Thompkons, the love Interest of Jim Gordon on FOX's Gotham (2014) and was the voice of the artificial intelligence Gideon on the CW's The Flash (2014). Also, was the voice of Black Canary on Justice League Unlimited.

Ryan Reynolds appeared as Deadpool in a video by the YouTube channel Screen Junkies called "Honest Trailers: Deadpool".

When Deadpool gets smashed into the headrest on a car he makes a quip about "rich Corinthian leather", this references an Old Chrysler Commercial with Ricardo Montalban.

Bob was originally meant to be the actual Bob from HYDRA, but a combination of the film's limited budget and possible legal action from Marvel forced the writers to take out any explicit references to HYDRA.

There were plans for cameos from various other X-Men, including Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, but the studio denied all of them for being too expensive.

Upon further inspection of the Deadpool list in Weasel's bar, with the exception of Weasel's choice of Wade Wilson and Wade Wilson's J. Boothe, the rest of the names are famous celebrities. Listing in APA format (starting with the left column, from top to bottom):

Bill Cosby, Charlie Sheen, Kanye West, (Wade Wilson), Vladimir Putin, (J. Booth), Ryan Reynolds, T.J. Miller, Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus, Kid Rock, Mike Tyson, Judd Nelson, Lil' Wayne, Shia LaBeouf, Ned Beatty, Rob Liefeld, Ozzy Osbourne, Amanda Bynes, Arnold Palmer.

Stan Lee jokingly said that his biggest complaint about his cameo (as a DJ in the strip club) is that he didn't get to spend enough time with the attractive actresses playing the strippers.

Tim Miller and Ryan Reynolds wept when they saw the completed costume, with Reynolds explaining that "we fought like hell ... to make this the most faithful comic book to movie adaptation fans have ever seen. That's hard to accomplish and a feat, but we're just so happy with how this came out."

When Colossus is first shown, eating cereal and watching a news report about Deadpool, he is in the kitchen where Wolverine and Bobby Drake (Iceman) were when Xavier's School was attacked by William Stryker in X2 (2003), which also features the first live action appearance of Colossus.

In the comics, Angel Dust (Gina Carano) is a natural mutant who can augment her super-strength with a temporary rush of adrenaline. This causes lines to appear on her face and she tires or exhausts herself shortly afterwards. In the film, she is a mutant whose powers were artificially boosted, much like Deadpool's. Plus, she is far more powerful in the film and does not seem to rely on an adrenaline boost. However, in a nod to the comic version there are moments when Angel Dust is clearly tiring in her fight with Colossus as if she has reached the limit of her powers.

Deadpool as originally created was just a clone of the DC Comics character Deathstroke (aka Slade Wilson) by Rob Liefeld (one of the most harshly criticized comic creators of the nineties' comic boom). It wasn't until other writers and artists applied their spin on the character that he became the Deadpool fans know and love.

Deadpool (2016) became the first Marvel film to be nominated for Best Picture-Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes.

The line "You know it's funny how I only see the two of you here. It's like the studio couldn't afford any more X-Men." became then Fox chairman James Gianopulos's favorite line.

Colossus is 7 ft. 6 inches in the film, but the actor Andre Tricoteux, is only 6 ft. 10.5 inches.

Deadpool's reference to the movie 127 Hours (2010) was cut down slightly to take out a reference to star 'James Franco', whom he referred to as Harry Osborn. This was done to avoid contention with Sony who still held the rights to Spider-Man at the time.

The boots Deadpool wears are black Nike SFB's, a popular boot worn by US Armed Forces. Or Tactical 5.11 Flyweight boots.

While Deadpool is fighting in the car filled with thugs, his head is smashed into the radio a few times, changing the channel. During this action, for a split second, one of the channels it skips to displays the old scene transition logo from the Adam West era Batman show. A small nod to the early days of the superhero boom.

In June 2010, Robert Rodriguez was approached to direct, but he turned it down for Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World (2011).

Gina Carano had wanted to wear yellow contact lenses to match Angel Dust's look in the comics, but makeup artist Bill Corso refused, comparing the yellow eyes to something from the Twilight films.

TJ Miller felt he was cast as Weasel because he "looks like his superhero power is spilling mustard on his shirt" and producer Simon Kinberg added that an actor was needed "who could keep up with Reynolds comedically", Miller attempted to give his character a facial tic, but Director Tim Miller rejected the idea.

When Negasconic Teenage Warhead burns through her civilian clothing in the final climax scene, she is wearing a classic X-Men yellow spandex uniform. She is the only mutant in any of the X-Men movies who wears one.

As Colossus is dragging a handcuffed Deadpool, Deadpool says "Dead or alive, you're coming with me". A reference to RoboCop (1987), being as Colossus is in his metal form.

In May 2000, Artisan Entertainment announced a deal with Marvel Entertainment to co-produce, finance and distribute a film based on Deadpool. In February 2004, development for the film began with New Line Cinema. However, in March 2005, New Line Cinema put the film in turnaround and 20th Century Fox became interested. In May 2009, 20th Century Fox lent the film to writers, and in April 2011, Tim Miller was hired to direct.

The scene in which Deadpool breaks his hands and leg, after attempting to punch and kick Colossus, is inspired by a similar scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) where King Arthur battles the black knight. King Arthur cuts off the black knight's limbs one after the other but the black knight keeps fighting back.

When Ajax and Angel Dust are about to leave the bar, Weasel quips, "Have fun at your midnight showing of Blade II (2002)". Ryan Reynolds played Hannibal King in the third Blade film, Blade: Trinity (2004).

Filming for Deadpool started in March 2015 in Vancouver.

Negasonic Teenage Warhead's appearance is significant in debut in three ways: it is the first-ever live action debut of an original character created by writer Grant Morrison. it is the debut of the actual character in a live-action movie it is the film debut of Brianna Hildebrand.

Director Tim Miller praised Ed Skrein's (Ajax/Francis) dedication to his role saying "he worked really, really hard" for the fight sequences and completed around 80% of his own stunts in the film.

Ryan Reynolds began his acting career in 1991, also the year Deadpool was first introduced in the comics.

According to Tim Miller, the tone shifted several times in development, with the studio looking for a PG rating at one point.

The song "Careless Whisper" is referenced throughout the film as being performed by Wham!. This was confusing for a lot of audience members outside North America and Japan because in the rest of the world the song was released as the first solo single by George Michael.

Tim Miller's debut as a feature film director. However, his company, Blur Studios, was involved in the early days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ahead of the production of the first Iron Man (2008) movie, Marvel was concerned that their younger fan-base would not know who Iron Man was, and hired Blur to produce shorts demonstrating that there was a man in his suit, that he used gadgets and technology, and that he was a respected friend of more familiar Marvel characters.

In the final climax scene, the crashed aircraft carrier looks like a helicarrier from the Avengers movies. However, since the X-Men franchise is owned by Fox, and the Avengers franchise is owned by Marvel, director Tim Miller designed it to look as much like the Avengers carriers as he could without crossing the line and risking a lawsuit by Marvel. Marvel and Fox have a long standing battle over what can and can't be used in each other's films.

For Deadpool's scarred appearance, director Tim Miller wanted him to appear "fucking horrible" to justify his anger in the film, while makeup designer Bill Corso had some leeway because in the comics "he's everything from a rotten corpse to a guy with a couple of lines on his face". Corso acknowledged the script's description of the character as disfigured but also wanted him to be "still kind of charming and iconic" He wanted to avoid comparisons to Freddy Krueger, and looked to Sin City for inspiration. The final makeup required nine silicone prosthetics to cover Reynolds head which took several hours to apply. For the scene where the character is naked, it took 6 hours to apply the full body makeup to Reynolds. Corso describe the makeup for the rest of the film's character as "...pretty simple. Tim wanted to keep it really grounded".

Placed #1 at the U.S. box office for its first three weeks of release, until being dethroned by Zootopia (2016) in the first week of March 2016.

Deadpool was given an inventor assistant in the late '90s comic books called "Weasel." T.J. Miller's character Weasel combines traits of this character, with Deadpool supporting character "Patch."

When Wade is trying to guess Ajax's real name, one of his guesses (said in a British accent) is 'Basil Fawlty'. This is a character from British TV sitcom 'Fawlty Towers' made famous by John Cleese. John Cleese is one of the founding members of Monty Python. There are references to Monty Python sketches throughout the movie; notably Holy Grail's Black Knight (when Deadpool fights Collosus) and The Four Yorkshiremen (when Wade and Vanessa try to out-do each others' tragic childhoods).

At 1hr15m Weasel refers to Blind Al who is pointing a rifle as "Ronnie Milsap" a blind American singer.

Screenwriter Rhett Reese called Colossus "a great foil to Deadpool because he's very self serious and goody two-shoes".

In the scene where Wade is leaving his friends to do battle with Ajax/Francis at the scrapyard, there is a statuette on a shelf or mantle behind Blind Al. It is the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate award (or a duplicate) from the '60s anthology, Laugh-in where the hosts gave out the weekly award. It depicts a 'finger gun' with a bandage or wings on the index finger.

Ryan Reynolds performed many of his own stunts and action scenes in this film.

Ed Skrein (Ajax) is the second Game of Thrones (2011) actor to appear in an X-Men film, after Peter Dinklage (Bolivar Trask). Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) was the third.

A song from the soundtrack is a revised version of the "Deadpool Rap" which was made for the film by 'Teamheadkick' and has lyrics changed to fit the movie's plot.

When Deadpool is talking about Blind Al, he describes her as his "Robin", only "black old and in love with him", a reference to Batman's sidekick. He then flips it into a joke aimed at the homoerotic undertones people often point out in the classic TV series Batman (1966).

As soon as editor Julian Clarke began selecting shots for the film, they were color graded by EFILM's Tim Stipan to ensure that they matched with each other. Stipan colored the characters slightly differently, such as giving Deadpool a "dark, modern touch" and Colossus a "particular vibrancy and substance." Clarke edited each scene focusing on humor, choosing between alternate takes of jokes. He removed jokes made after Vanessa is kidnapped because they felt inappropriately timed, and cut down other scenes with less jokes such as Wilson being tortured as they were "too much. You took too long to recover [and] get back in the irreverent spirit of the movie." During editing, a linear version of the film was produced. They decided to go with interweaving the timelines to balance the different serious and silly tones.

Wade, at one point, talks about Liam Neeson. Neeson had a supporting role in the fifth Dirty Harry movie, The Dead Pool (1988)

Because of the animation required for Deadpool's mask and Colossus, Reese and Wernick had more freedom than usual to keep adjusting the script during post-production. Reynolds recorded new lines of dialogue using his iPhone, and then re-recorded the lines in an additional dialogue recording session once the film was finalized. Lines added after filming included Reynolds doing an impression of Wolverine star Hugh Jackman's natural Australian accent, and another where Deadpool asks whether the character Professor X is being portrayed by James McAvoy or Patrick Stewart at that point in the X-Men timeline, which became a favorite line in the film for many audience members.

For Colossus metallic finish the visual effects team sought specific references to avoid him looking all "chromey" by visiting a metal company to look at various samples. They settled on cold rolled steel with the darker hot rolled steel used for his hair.

Wade makes reference to the WNBA's Sacramento Monarchs. Though the WNBA celebrated its twentieth year in 2016, the Monarchs folded after the 2009 season. This and other references imply that the movie was not set in 2016, when the film was released (such as a not-so-serious reference to it being the "Year of the Dog," which last occurred in 2006). He later calls the recruiter "Jared" and the word "foot long" is mentioned. This is a reference to Jared Fogle, the former Subway restaurants spokesman who was arrested for molestation charges. This reference implies the movie is in fact set in 2015-2016 or later (the next Year of the Dog is 2018, the year Deadpool 2 is set to be released). Wade quips about the recruiter being a pedophile in their first talk at the bar.

In the movie, Wade and Weasel come up with the name 'Deadpool' from the Dead Pool betting in the Hellhouse/Sister Margaret's. In the comics, the Dead Pool betting takes place at the research facility between inmates where Wade and others are experimented on.

In order to create Deadpool speaking and expressing in this mask, Ryan Reynolds wore a physical mask with tracker markers during filming and recording clips of himself delivering dialogue without the mask for WETA Digital's animators during post-production.

In February 2014, David S. Goyer was hired to direct, but by August, he had gone on to work on other films.

A few days after the film got its official R rating from the Motion Picture Association of America, there was an online petition made by a woman who requested a PG-13 cut of the film to be released in theaters. This request to 20th Century Fox was done for her 8 year old son who wanted to see the film. Though the request wasn't fulfilled, it sparked such controversy among fans of the Deadpool character and cinema fans. The controversy is mainly due to the attempted censorship of a film directed toward mature audiences for the appeasement of younger audiences.

Taylor Schilling, Crystal Reed, Rebecca Ritters, Sarah Greene and Jessica De Gouw were considered for the role of Vanessa Carlysle.

Announced on February 13, Gina Carano joined the cast as "Angel Dust."

Ryan Reynolds was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actor In A Comedy or Musical for portraying Wade Wilson/Deadpool, a Marvel character, in this film. Though he lost to Ryan Gosling for La La Land (2016), he was seen passionately kissing Andrew Garfield just when Gosling took the stage to accept the award. Ironically, the moment ended up being talked about more than the actual win. Garfield portrayed Peter Parker/Spider-Man, also a Marvel character, in The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) alongside his former girlfriend and Gosling's La La Land (2016) co-star, Emma Stone. In the comics, Deadpool and Spider-Man have frequently teamed up and formed a reluctant, close friendship as a result.

The mask's eye pads are completely removable and come out with the push of a button on the back of the head. There are also different eye pads with wider eye openings for action scenes.

For his initial scarring, Rodeo FX referenced rotting fruit and maggot-eaten meat. The company added a CG penis to Reynolds in the sequence, which "you don't even notice [but] when it wasn't there it looked really weird". Rodeo also augmented the practical fire in the scene.

When Deadpool touches Colossus' groin and says "Dad", it is referring both to when he was abused when he was younger, and foreshadows Colossus being a fatherly figure and giving advice.

According to Reynolds, Deadpool's swords are named "Bea" and "Arthur." In the comics Deadpool famously had an infatuation with Bea Arthur when she was still alive. He also wears a shirt with Arthur on it during his date with Vanessa.

Ajax was a warrior in Greek mythology.

Tim Miller stated that Jed Rees portraying The Recruiter "did a good job of being creepy and syrupy sweet."

A French animation artist with a "unique style" created 2D cartoon characters that dance around Deadpool after he is stabbed in the head during the fight.

Other pitches for the end credits included a 1980s Knight Rider (1982) style version, and an Honest Trailers version done by the actual crew of the web series.

Visual effects were used for the more complex blood and gore, while footage of pressurize PVC piping "spewing out" practical blood and gore was also composited into the film for some sequences.

Tim Miller explained that Colossus would be a solely CGI creation in the film because, as a fan of the character, he had never felt that Daniel Cudmore's version was accurate to the comics and wanted to show the character as "this monstrous guy".

The writers had scripted the action very specifically, "every kill and almost down to every punch, kick, or shot", but Tim Miller and the stunt coordinators were free to change this.

Tim Miller felt that while it was okay for audience members to not understand all of the jokes in the film, he wished to avoid things specifically targeted to comic fans: "Any joke that an audience needs to look up on the internet after watching the movie is not something I'm in favour of."

Brianna Hildebrand did a rock playlist to get into Negasonic Teenage Warhead's frame of mind.

Both Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin have starred alongside actor Nathan Fillion; Reynolds in Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place (1998), and Baccarin in Firefly (2002) and Serenity (2005). Fillion was rumored to be considered for the role of Cable in an upcoming movie.

Colossus' height in the comics is 6'6" as flesh and 7'5" as metal. Stand-in Andre Tricoteux is 6'8" tall (two inches taller than the human height) whilst voice actor 'Stephan Kapicic' is 6'4" (two inches shorter than the human height). Tricoteux wore 8-inch heels, making him an inch shorter than Colossus' metal height. His predecessor, Daniel Cudmore, was 6'7" tall, an inch taller than Colossus' human height.

Gina Carano felt her character's rage and "extreme adrenaline issues" made comparisons to the drug "angel dust" fitting.

The stunt team had a month before filming began to prepare the actors, with Skrein working non-stop to prepare. Silvera said Reynolds "has a photographic memory; he'd do something three or four times and remember it very well."

Taskmaster was in the script at one point, but, was cut for being too expensive, especially since Marvel still owns the rights for him.

The word "f***" is said 79 times.

During the fight on the highway there is an exit for Parker Avenue; Deadpool has often teamed up/been against Spider-Man aka Peter Parker.

Colossus is seen only in his metal form throughout the movie.

When Deadpool breaks both his hands punching Colossus, Digital Domain went through 20-30 different versions of what broken fingers could look like.

A sequence removed from the film saw Wilson and Vanessa travel to Mexico looking for a cure after he turned down the recruiter. It was removed for pacing reasons, and was replaced with a short scene of Wilson sitting beside his window that was originally filmed to show him thinking about his diagnosis, but in the new context implies him re-thinking the recruiter's offer.

A Fox executive described the film as "Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) meets Natural Born Killers (1994)", which the writers felt was an accurate description.

The film takes place in the reset timeline of the cinematic X-Men universe established in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) and X-Men: Apocalypse (2016). The film takes place 33 years after X-Men: Apocalypse (2016).

When Deadpool breaks his wrists on Colossus, he says, "All the dinosaurs feared the T-Rex," which may have been a reference to the comic Savage Land where the X-Men encounter dinosaurs and Colossus defeats a T-Rex. (Or this may have simply been a reference to the shape of Deadpool's arms.)

This is the third Marvel movie to reference a DC franchise, the first being Spider-Man (2002) when Aunt May says "You aren't Superman you know" to Peter Parker and the second being Iron Man 3 where Happy Hogan makes a reference to the Avengers being the Super Friends.

The frozen time opening sequence was inspired by Adam Berg's short film Carousel (2009), which was two minutes of an event frozen in time. Ryan Reynolds was impressed with the short and Berg was briefly a front-runner to direct Deadpool.

The suit was difficult for the visual effects team to replicate with CGI, which visual effects supervisor Jonathan Rothbart blamed on its fabric. He described it as mesh that allowed dirt to "get into the gutters and the cracks ... [so when] the light hits it, it still takes that orangey hue but as soon as it goes in the shadow it dropped to this more blueish of the dirt."

Tim Miller held off on working on the CGI for Colossus until after the film was edited, to avoid spending money on shots that would not be used.

The dream about Liam Neeson that Wade had was in reference to the film Taken (2008), and its two sequels, which starred Neeson.

This movie was the 6th highest grossing film of 2016

Director Tim Miller personally called Gina Carano and asked her to take the part of Angel Dust.

Tim Miller and cinematographer Ken Seng wanted the film to look "grittier and less clean and glossy" than other superhero films, and decided to shoot with digital cameras but add film grain in post-production to keep texture in the images. Seng used Super Baltar lenses and Cooke zooms for the origin story timeline, opposed to Panavision primo lenses for the Deadpool scenes which gave them more clarity. Exterior scenes in the film have a consistent overcast look, but location shooting came with "unpredictable" weather. For instance, the production had use of the Georgia Viaduct for two weeks, and "just had to keep shooting, rain or shine, because once our permit expired on the bridge, we were never going to get it back." Seng used more lighting on cloudy days and less on sunny days to keep the look consistent.

Morena Baccarin described Vanessa as "scrappy" and not a damsel in distress. The character was initially designed as a "typical prostitute", but Baccarin worked with the costume and makeup teams to make her appearance more layered.

When Wade and Weasel come up with the nickname "Deadpool" Wade says "Captain Deadpool" a reference to the comics when wade briefly thought about adding captain to his name

A promotional campaign for the movie is a parody of the Uncle Sam Wants You poster, with Deadpool declaring "You want ME."

This is the tenth Marvel movie that has shown nudity in some manner. The other Marvel Movies are Howard the Duck (1986), Hulk (2003), The Punisher (2004), Blade: Trinity (2004), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), The Incredible Hulk (2008), X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), The Wolverine (2013), and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). Logan (2017) follows this film as the eleventh film in this list.

When Weasel asks Blind Al if she "wants to get fucked up" could be a reference to their characters secretly hanging out in the comic books. Wade is more private of his home in the comics than the movie and never let Weasel visit.

When Colossus is first shown, he is seen eating Grape-Nut's 20.5 oz cereal.

Film Illusions made six hero versions of the costume and twelve stunt-specific versions, along with three hero versions of Negasonic Teenage Warhead's costume.

Production designer Sean Haworth also worked closely with Miller, who had specific ideas for the sets. The production had to be very specific about which elements of each set were built physically to conserve the budget for visual effects. For the final scrapyard scene, garbage was built to a certain height to be extended with CGI, and a gimbal was used for a tilting section of the yard that had to interact with a lot of digital elements. That final sequence was filmed in a naval yard, and was dressed with scrap metal. Rubber casts of the metal were made for stunts.

An immediate focus during pre-production was Deadpool's suit, with Russ Shinkle and Film Illusions hired to create the costume. Shinkle noted that "comic book art is fairly over the top in terms of physique", and he tried to balance that with reality.

This is the first X-Men film in which Hugh Jackman doesn't make a physical appearance.

In the film, Deadpool repeatedly refers to Negasonic Teenage Warhead as Sinead. This is a reference to singer Sinead O'Connor, to whom the character's haircut is similar. This could also be a nod to Deadpool's repeated reference to the character's brooding personality, as Sinead O'Connor's song "Nothing Compares 2 U" is considered one of the most depressing songs of all time.

Robert Alonzo and Philip J. Silvera were the stunt coordinators for the film; Silvera had provided motion capture reference for the test footage.

Atomic Fiction created a freeway environment for the "Twelve Bullets Fight", with a backdrop based on Detroit, Chicago, and Vancouver. The vendor also created the vehicles in the sequence. These assets were used by Blur for the opening titles, which moves through a frozen moment where Deadpool is fighting thugs inside a crashing car. It includes titles such as "Directed by an overpaid tool" and "Produced by asshats", with Reynolds, Miller, and the writers coming up with their own credits in the hope of setting the tone for the rest of the film.

One spectacular scene from the showdown, realized by Digital Domain, sees NTW use her explosive powers to launch Deadpool on a piece of metal up to an area that Ajax has the superhero's girlfriend hostage. "Tim described Negasonic Teenage Warhead to me as a fuel air bomb," says Rothbart. "They're these bombs where they launch them and explode but only ignite when the fuel spreads out. So you get this massive combustion moment but spread out into this huge large area. But we also needed something to show the genesis of the effect, so DD came up with something that looks like the solar flares of the sun."

Both Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman's People magazine covers as Sexiest Man Alive are shown and are used as integral parts of the movie.

The different vendors all collaborated for the final battle sequence, which takes place in the wreckage of a helicarrier: Luma created the climactic fight between Deadpool and Ajax; DD created the majority of the Colossus effects, except for when he is damaged later on, which was handled by Blur Studio; DD also created the effects for Negasonic Teenage Warhead's abilities as well as expanding the helicarrier's deck; Rodeo contributed matte paintings for the background; and Weta provided the facial animation for Deadpool. Negasonic's abilities were the only "supernatural effect-sy thing" in the film, and were based on fuel-air exposives and solar flares to try ground them in reality. Setting the final sequence on the wrecked helicarrier was Miller's idea, to help expand the scope of the third act and include more connections to the comics and wider Marvel Universe. To avoid rights issues with Marvel Studios, the helicarrier for Deadpool was designed to be "as different as possible from the one in The Avengers."

One poster for the film has a version of a Joker line from the 1989 Batman film, "Wait 'til you get a load of me."

For his role, Ed Skrein (Ajax/Francis) drew inspiration from Roy Batty from Blade Runner (1982) and British serial killer Harold Shipman.

The writers did not want the film to be an origin story, but Ryan Reynolds disagreed. They both decided on a mix of a "modern" Deadpool story and an origin story, using Deadpool's narration and fourth-wall breaking to balance the darker origin story with the comical scenes.

A few days after it was released on DVD and Bluray, the film dethroned The Revenant (2015) in DVD/Bluray sales. Coincidentally, both films are distributed by 20th Century Fox and are rated R. The Blu-ray releases of both films are also frequently purchased together on

According to a Q&A with Taylor Hickson on Twitter, the film went under a codename of an 80's band, which Hickson wouldn't disclose (presumably since the sequel may go by the same name.) The band was Wham! as noted in other trivia pieces.

Greg LaSalle who provided the facial movements for Colossus revealed the vomiting scene was the most challenging. He stated "Colossus can't stand the sight of blood, so he almost instantaneously vomits when he see's blood. Trying to vomit when you're acting is an incredibly physically draining thing. Unfortunately, since motion capture, like I was saying, you just do the takes, loop and loop and loop. By the time you do 10 vomit sequences, and there aren't that many in the film, but you're doing it over and over again to try and modify that. I actually was almost really vomiting on the cameras, because your whole body has to get into it to make it look real. You know, you can't pretend to vomit, it'll look like you're pretending to vomit. So, at one point Director Tim Miller was like, 'Dude, you got to stop, because you're going to pass out and you're going to throw up on the cameras.' That was incredibly physically challenging".

Composer Junkie XL noted that Deadpool only makes musical references from before 1990 in the film, and so used sounds from the 1980s, which included synthesizers, an Oberheim and a Synclavier for the film soundtrack. Holkenborg liked that the classic synthesizer sound was originally imposing and portentous, but sounded silly and weird to modern audiences - the perfect sound for a superhero parody.

The first image of Deadpool's costume is a reference to a famous nude photo of Burt Reynolds laying on a bearskin rug.

One promotional short has Deadpool killing Mario Lopez while exclaiming "Fuck you, Slater!" A.C. Slater was the name of Mario Lopez's character on Saved by the Bell.

Adam Berg emerged as a top contender to direct.

The school for the X-Men is Charles Xavier School for gifted youngsters. The bar for mercenaries is Sister Margaret's school for wayward girls.

Deadpool (2016) is the only film released in 2016 to be given nominations by the 2016 MTV Movie Awards, which has given nominations to films released in 2015.

The film is a spin-off of a spin-off. The film is a spin-off of X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) which is a spin-off of X-Men (2000). Ryan Reynolds made his debut as Deadpool in X-Men: Origins: Wolverine (2009).

Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters' address, 1407 Graymalkin Lane, is a reference to the cat or familiar of the First Witch in Shakespeare's Macbeth.

This is not the first time Ryan Reynolds has starred in a movie that had a character named "Colossus". In his break out role in Van Wilder, Van (played by Reynolds) had a dog named Colossus.

Like Iron Man/Tony Stark when he refuses Nick Fury and Natash Romanoff's offer to join The Avengers in the earlier Marvel comic book film Iron Man 2 (2010). Wade Wilson/Deadpool refuses Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Colossus's offer to join the X-Men.

Crank (2006) and its sequel Crank: High Voltage (2009) are considered by a few to be major influences behind the film, in particular its over-the-top action, humor and strong profanity. Both Crank (2009) and Deadpool (2016) are films about violent, foul-mouthed, cocky killers and drug addicts who are injected with a serum which makes them indestructible, and they set out on their quests for revenge against the people responsible.

The F word is used 77 times.

When recently screened on FX for its world premiere in April 2018, Deadpool (2016), had a scene unavailable on disc, it showed Deadpool in a pink costume and surrounded by pink movie props from the movie to schill for "FUCK CANCER". To see this outfit and have a chance to win assorted "swag", you have to visit to donate and help fight cancer. This includes his pink outfit, T-shirts with FUCK CANCER emblazoned on and other products to win if you donate to FUCK CANCER.

Olivia Munn turned down the role of Vanessa.

Leslie Uggams added that Blind Al has a "love/hate" relationship with Deadpool.

T.J. Miller and Stan Lee also starred together in Big Hero 6 (2014), another movie based on a Marvel comic. Lee voiced the dad of Miller's character Fred.

Ryan Reynolds credited Miller and his visual effects experience with producing a film that looked liked others with much bigger budgets.

Tim Miller was hired in part because of his work creating animated short films, including the Academy Award-winning Gopher Broke (2004) and a DC Universe Online (2011) trailer which was "epic and cinematic, everything Fox wanted their comic book movies to be."

Before becoming Deadpool, Wade Wilson carries a Para-Ordnance P14.45 Limited, early model with vertical slide serrations - .45 ACP.

In the beginning of the film (the taxicab scene) you can see Joe Louis Arena soon to be former home of the Detroit Red Wings in the background.

First "X-Men film" to be Rated R by the MPAA

Colossus's movements were re-recorded with performer T.J. Storm, as Tricoteux had been unable to move athletically due to the platform shoes he had to wear on set to replicate the character's height. LaSalle was used for his facial performance. DD then mapped these performances onto a digital model that was designed to be comic-accurate.

Tim Miller worked with visual effects supervisor Rothbart to design and complete the film's 1500 effects shots. These were up from a planned 700 shots, with 800 of them completed in the last four weeks of production.

Ryan Reynolds was born in 1976, which is the year Dirty Harry's The Enforcer (1976) was released. Followed by Sudden Impact (1983) and The Dead Pool (1988).

The film is considered to be a loose remake of the action film Crank (2006). In that film, Jason Statham stars as Chev Chelios, a professional assassin whom seeks revenge on his nemesis whom injected him with a lethal poison which will kill him when his heart rate drops, which he becomes seemingly indestructible. In this film, Wade Wilson seeks vengeance on Ajax when he injects him a serum that gives him mutant powers, but as consequence leaves him disfigured which he becomes Deadpool.

The weapons Wade gathers as he tells Weasel that he needs ("all the guns") to combat, Francis/Ajax at the scrapyard which he ultimately forgets in Dopinders taxi are: *3rd generation Glock 17 *Heckler & Koch Mark 23 - *8 3/8" Smith & Wesson Model 29 - (a reference to Dirty Harry "The Dead Pool (1988) *IMI Mini Uzi (folded stock) *IMI Galil SAR (Valment rifle) *Norinco Type 84S-2 with black polymer pistol grips and handguard *Steyr Aug A1 *Short-barreled folding stock Remington 870 A second short-barreled 870 with front and rear pistol grips and a top folding stock is picked up by Wade.

Stan Lee: a DJ at the strip club.

Rob Liefeld: the creator of Deadpool, a customer at the bar when Wade addresses two people: "Buck... Liefeld"

Throughout the film, Deadpool accuses the studio of not having enough money to pay for several elements in the movie. In fact, Fox Studios cut seven million dollars out of the film's budget at the last minute, necessitating several rewrites. Items cut from the film included a motorcycle chase between Wade and Francis, the addition of more named villains, and several action sequences. For the latter, the fights were scaled down by having Deadpool forget to bring his ammo and gun bags.

A three-minute test reel was shot in January 2012 in an attempt to convince the heads of the studio to move forward with the movie. On August 1, 2014, the footage was released to the public, and based on the overwhelmingly positive response from fans, the film finally began production. The footage was so popular that part of it was recreated for the actual film. This included the opening scene with Deadpool on the highway which leads to the fight scene in the car.

In the comic books, Deadpool garnered his healing factor from an experiment involving a sample of Wolverine's blood. The serum Wade is injected with can be seen to have drops of blood in it, implying that those drops of blood come from Wolverine.

During a scene in the lab, Ajax suggests sewing up Wade's mouth to shut him up. To this, Wade replies "Oh, I wouldn't do that if I were you." This is a reference to X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) where Wade Wilson's mouth is sewn shut. Which drew the ire of comic book fans everywhere, including Reynolds himself.

Towards the end when Deadpool is fighting the soldiers, he stops for a moment when he recognizes one of them as "Bob". Bob, agent of HYDRA, is a recurring character in Deadpool comic books, who is a cowardly sidekick type character and is often reluctantly forced to aid Deadpool in his escapades. The HYDRA aspect of the character was removed for obvious licensing reasons.

At one point, there is an X-Men Origins Deadpool toy, which we can hear Wade say, "My most prized possession!" at which the toy is cast aside and we see he is talking about his Wham! album. This is a nod to how poorly the X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) version of Deadpool was received.

When Ajax/Francis brings Vanessa to the top of the helicarrier prior to the end battle, she is wearing a red coat with white trim. This is Wade's jacket that he can be seen wearing at the beginning of the film. Vanessa had kept it and used it regularly even after Wade left her and she presumed him dead.

While trying out different uniforms to wear, Deadpool wears a single eye mask that slightly resembles that of Slade Wilson (Deathstroke). This is a nod to the Deathstroke character; Slade Wilson, from whom Deadpool's creator borrowed heavily in his original vision of the character.

The ammo bag that Deadpool fills with firearms that is later forgotten in the final battle is a nod to Deadpool's unlimited weapon and ammo satchel in Marvel Comics.

At the beginning of the movie, Deadpool narrates that he had to do some unspeakable things to get his own movie to a person whose name rhymes with "Polverine." He then proceeds to do an Australian accent impersonation, talking about his smooth criminals Down Under. Hugh Jackman has had a major role in getting this movie made, according to Rhett Reese in an interview to Yahoo! Movies.

Hugh Jackman can be seen twice throughout the movie. First on the cover magazine and the second when Deadpool is wearing Jackman's face, from the magazine, near the end of the film when he takes off his mask. Deadpool makes a reference to Wolverine, by using a word that rhymes with "Wolverine"; "Polverine".

Deadpool refers to himself as "your friendly neighborhood pool guy," a direct reference to Spider-Man being called "your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man," with whom Deadpool often collaborates in the comic books.

When Wade Wilson is being taken to begin the experimental healing process, there is a glimpse of Marrow, leader of the Morlocks, sitting up with her back turned.

When Colossus is giving his "4 or 5 moments to be a hero", speech to Deadpool to convince him to spare Ajax/Francis, if you look closely you can see Deadpool give Francis a slight head nod who also nods in agreement, showing that they both find Colossus annoying.

Stan Lee revealed, at Megacon, that his cameo in a strip club, was not actually in a strip club. Lee was in a studio box, which was edited in the strip club scene. He then sarcastically stated that he was "damn mad about it".

At the 1hr14m mark at the strip club, Weasel says to Wade Wilson about Vanessa to "Go get her, Tiger," which is what Mary Jane Watson would say as an endearmeant to Marvel superhero Peter Parker AKA Spider-Man.

The X-Mansion, AKA the "Xavier School," can be seen twice. Deadpool visits to recruit two X-Men members, Colossus and Negosonic Teenage Warhead. They are the only X-Men members to be seen outside the school. Deadpool jokes about only having these two members by the studio not having enough money to show more X-Men members.

The villain Taskmaster and a Wolverine cameo were originally in the script, but both were written out.

The film recouped its $68 Million Dollar budget in the first two days of its release.

Hidden Mickey: When Deadpool goes to the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning (X-Men Mansion) to get the X-Men's help, a hidden Mickey can be seen in the hedge garden.

In a scene in the cab, Wade Wilson refers to the X-men as a 'boy band'. In Iron Man 2 (2010), Tony Stark also refers to The Avengers as a 'super-secret boy band.'

There was going to be a sequel hook revealing that Ajax was just a puppet working for Doctor Killebrew, the real mastermind behind the experiments that mutated Wade.

For the scene where Deadpool cuts off his own hand, Digital Domain did not want to be "outdone" by Luma and so had "Buckets of blood pouring out", Luma also created the regrowing hand which was based on the hand of a fetus.

During Stan Lee's cameo as the D.J. at the strip club, if you look closely you can see he's wearing Deadpool headphones around his neck.

In the extended Deadpool montage on the blu-ray outtakes, Deadpool can be seen turning in multiple gold cards to collect on numerous jobs at Sister Margaret's. One of the targets named on those cards is "Mumford and Sons."

In the after credits scene, Deadpool refers to the character Nick Fury from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ryan Reynolds has stated many times that he wants Deadpool to be part of this universe, so he can make a collaborative film with the character Spiderman.

The two handguns that Deadpool uses are IWI (Israel Weapon's Industries) Desert Eagle's Mark XIX.50 Action express with over-barrel Picatinny-style rails, They are recognizable by their safeties, which are retained from the original production Mark XIX; the U.S.-made Magnum Research version, in contrast, now has the "teardrop"-style safety found on the original Mark I.

The handgun Blind Al gives to Deadpool/Wade which he later uses to kill Ajax with is a Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket .25 with pearl grips which Weasel incorrectly refers to as .45 caliber.

Patch originally appeared in the script as a bartender, and would have been strangled to death by Wyre when Ajax and his men stormed the bar. His role was ultimately given to Weasel.

The end credit scene is a tribute to "Ferris Bueller's Day Off".

During the highway fight scene, Deadpool gets shot in the ass, to which he remarks, "Right up Main Street!" The filming location of this scene is on the Georgia Viaduct in Vancouver, Canada. Later on, as a handcuffed Deadpool is being dragged by Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead towards the X-Jet, you can see that the jet is parked just before an off-ramp from the highway. In real life, this off-ramp leads to Vancouver's Main Street.

    I really, really liked Deadpool. And you know what? I didn't expect to. Seriously, I was never a fan of the character (in the sense that I hardly knew anything about him) and the humor as well as the violence seemed forced and overdone in the trailers. Still, I remained interested in the film, I just never expected it to actually be good - until the reviews arrived. After most critics unexpectedly showered this newest superhero movie with praise, I went in cautiously optimistic (but still fully prepared to hate the film).

    The first thing I noticed was how inventive the storytelling is. The film throws you into the action from the first moment (literally: the very first moment) and then it goes back and forth in brilliant and unexpected ways to slowly unspool the story of this insane - but oddly charming - antihero. Flashbacks and fast-forwards can be annoying as hell, but when done right, they can help render even a somewhat simple story fresh and exciting. And that's exactly how Deadpool felt to me right from the start: like a fresh (if somewhat dirty) jolt of energy.

    The action itself is beautifully designed, employing playful visuals and using pretty much every camera technique available; it never feels repetitive and the pacing is close to perfection. But, and that was probably the key to me liking the film so much, there's a beating heart underneath all the action and carnage, and that has a lot to do with how brilliantly Ryan Reynolds portrays the character and the great chemistry he has with co-star Morena Baccarin. What came as a complete surprise to me was how unabashedly romantic Deadpool is. The love story in this film is probably the most sincere I've ever seen in a superhero movie and it gives the film the strong emotional core which so many of these movies lack.

    The humor, which I initially feared would just be non-stop juvenile wisecracks and soon become distracting, also works surprisingly well. Not every line or every joke lands - but that's the beauty of this character: they don't really need to. Deadpool can't help himself; as long as he's able to breathe he'll crack wise and make fun of himself and those around him. It's a clinical condition; he's not a stand-up comedian whose jokes need to land: he's a madman (albeit a very entertaining one) and the comedy in his case is born out of tragedy.

    Despite all my praise, it's not a perfect film. The villain in this revenge tale could be more memorable and the story itself is a bit too derivative to really do its highly unconventional protagonist (he insists he's not a hero) justice: but it's a damn good first entry in a franchise that will hopefully explore the character and his world to a much larger extent in the sequel(s). And it's actually a very important film for another reason. If Deadpool is a financial success - which at this point is already clear it will be - this could play a vital role in how studios henceforth view the financial prospects of R-rated superhero films, and we'll hopefully see more of them in the future.

    Many people might feel different - and I respect their opinion - but I've grown tired of the entirely bloodless CGI overkill in all those 200 million productions where even the most terrible villains talk like Mormon schoolgirls. I mean: there's a gigantic audience out there that is over the age of 18, loves to read comic books and can absolutely handle real-world language, real-world sex and real-world violence in superhero movies. This genre is so diverse; it's ridiculous to believe just because comic books have pictures in them all film adaptations - regardless of the material - must automatically be made for kids in order to be successful.

    As it is, I think Deadpool - a dirty, funny, sexy and violent film which is decidedly NOT for kids - just proved my point perfectly. 8 stars out of 10.

    Deadpool is a triumph of artistic vision over studio interference. Little credit should be given to 20th Century Fox, as they had zero faith in the success of a Deadpool movie. To put things into perspective, Ryan Reynolds fought for this film back in 2004 when Blade: Trinity was released. Reynolds and co. went to shoot test footage that was then leaked online by Reynolds because Fox had no intentions to release it to the public. Finally, after years and years of BEGGING to the studio and the overwhelming positive responses of the test footage from the public, Fox didn't even tell Reynolds and co. that the film was greenlit. They had to find out online like the rest of us plebeians. If that sounds bad, Fox even cut their budget by $7 million AT THE LAST MINUTE, which caused the writers to scratch some action sequences that I'm sure would've been great to see.

    Deadpool now has the biggest opening weekend in the month of February (surpassing Fifty Shades of Grey), the biggest opening weekend for 20th Century Fox (surpassing all the X-Men films), and the biggest opening weekend for an R rated film EVER (surpassing The Matrix: Reloaded). With all that being said, Deadpool is a hilariously entertaining film that works mainly because of Reynolds himself. His comedic skills pay off gloriously as the titular character, who gives so many quips in one instance that some jokes will be missed. Of course, credit should be given to the writers too (AKA: The Real Heroes Here), and it's impressive that this is Tim Miller's directorial debut. The action sequences and pacing are so good that you'd think this came from a veteran director.

    From the ingenious opening credits to the subversive ending, Deadpool constantly upends clichés and tropes you're used to seeing in superhero flicks in the past few years. What's great here is the filmmakers had something weird and perverse and just went with it. Jokes about pedophilia, pegging, and sex run rampant, but it's never really dark, despite the mature subject matter. On top of that, it's also very refreshing to see a pansexual superhero in such a big studio film. It's unheard of these days. Fox and other studios, learn from this success. It's not the fact that a hard R-rated film can do well, it's that Deadpool also happens to be very good, most likely because you, Fox, actually gave the filmmakers the creative freedom to do whatever the hell they wanted.

    At first glance, Deadpool seems like a typical superhero movie due to it being made by Marvel. But once those hilarious intro credits show up, you know you are in for one of the most creative films in recent years.

    The first thing that is unique about this film is the characters. In typical superhero films the characters are stiff and super serious, in Deadpool the characters are filled with personality and can range from the serious Francis to the silly Deadpool giving this a parody like feel, in a good way.

    Also what is different is that this is a story of revenge rather then saving the city/world/universe that is seen in every single superhero film. Also the tone of film is more comic then dark thanks to the fantastic humor of all kinds from slapstick to dirty to just plain silly, this film just does not stop the laughs (I laughed 20- 30 times in my SECOND watch).

    As for being an origin story, I can say that the backstory placements were well done, equally as funny, and explains only what is important in understanding the story. Final rating 10/10 this is a great nominee for movie of the year and one of the greatest comedies ever made

    "Deadpool" is a very fun movie. After the characterization of Deadpool I saw in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", I never wanted a Deadpool movie. I got one. It didn't disappoint. But at the same time I feel it is one of the most over-praised movies of all times. I don't hate this movie at all, but at the same time, I don't like it either. The majority of it is entertaining. What works? First and foremost, the character - Deadpool. This hilarious and goofy badass merc with a mouth is something I really liked. His jokes, punchlines and fourthwall breaking humor lands perfectly. Secondly, the non linear storytelling. If this movie had a linear storytelling, it wouldn't have been half as entertaining as it is. Thirdly, the hilarious character moments and slapstick comedy. The character interaction between Deadpool and some of the "X-Men", and Francis, and Dopinder, and Negasonic are funny and entertaining - sometimes involving some slapsticky things which are grose and graphic but solely due to Deadpool's mutation, makes it funny. The fourth wall break - take this element out, the movie is totally incomplete. Action scenes - pretty good, especially the first one. But that's all I liked about it. What bothered? A lot of things. It takes too much of liberty, due to the fourth wall breaking elements it has. It uses a number of movie clichés of the superhero genre and mock them by breaking the fourth wall. That surely is hilarious, but doesn't change the fact that the movie had a lazy writing. Also the plot is a typical superhero origins stuff, a little more romantic, though. None of the plotlines were exciting or intriguing. It felt good just because of the way the character Deadpool was written. Else, every one of them were simply clichéd materials. It felt as if we had to accept whatever was shoved down our throats and we had all the fourth wall breaks to cover it up. That felt like an overconfidence in the part of the makers. Also, one particular scene involving Deadpool and the villain feels too stretched. If it wasn't there, we won't have a third act. Why are people intentionally looking over these? I am completely surprised to see a bunch of people saying this is the greatest superhero film ever. It isn't bad, and doesn't suck. That's all. I can name a whole lot of superhero movies much better than this - "The Dark Knight" (2008), "Spider-Man" (2002), " Spider-Man 2" (2004), "Logan" (2017), "Avengers: Infinity War" (2018), "Deadpool 2" (2018), "Captain America: Civil War" (2016), "X-Men: First Class" (2011), "X-Men: Days of Future Past" (2014), "X-Men" (2000), "Batman Begins" (2005), "The Dark Knight Rises" (2012), "Unbreakable" (2000), "The Avengers" (2012), "Wonder Woman" (2017), "X2: X-Men United" (2003), "Thor: Ragnarok" (2017), etc. So, I absolutely don't feel that it being called "the greatest superhero film" is apt. In the end, it is essential to say that Ryan Reynolds is absolutely great as Wade Wilson/Deadpool. No one should replace him as Deadpool.

    Score : 6.3/10

    Grade : B-

    If anyone else could be cast to play Deadpool, he certainly doesn't exist in this universe. After Ryan Reynolds's dramatic failure in the Green Lantern film, he has returned to the comic book world. Reynolds is absolutely phenomenal as the foul mouthed, and witty anti hero. I mean he is just superb! He completely owns the role, and gives a fantastic performance. If Robert Downey Jr. IS Iron Man, then Ryan Reynolds IS Deadpool. He is also such a liveable character, and by the end of the film, I genuinely cared about Deadpool. I never thought I'd say that. All of the performances are great. No one holds a candle to Reynolds, but I will say not one person was miscast here.

    Deadpool is a unique film, and a huge gamble. Both Marvel and the studios bringing us this film took a major risk. This is a beloved character, and his world is very different than other Marvel films. Right off the bat, this film is consciously self-aware. It knows its a comic book film with comic book characters, and it actually exploits it. Many times, Deadpool turns to the audience and tells us what we're all thinking. It was so different, and it worked so very well. The narrative itself is also different. It's very non-linear. The events of the film don't play out in a normal straight narrative.

    One of the trademarks, nay, the trademark of Deadpool is his sense of humour. This film is by far one of the most hysterical films I have seen in some time. The writing is so perfect, so sharp, and so full of witty banter, and thankfully, it all works. Not one joke, that I remember, fell flat. The film had me laughing constantly; from the opening credits, all the way to the after credits scene.

    As for the action, it's also very satisfying. Many action films today are butchered by terrible camera work. For whatever reason, many modern action films are using shaky cam. Instead of clear, steady shots, the DP will go hand held, and shake the camera violently. The worst example in recent memory of this is, Taken 3. Thankfully, there are films like this, and others, that know exactly how to do a good action scene. Director Tim Miller and cinematographer Ken Seng do a brilliant job creating slick, good looking action. Not only is the action brutal, and extremely bloody, it's just co clear and well handled. The fights are really great here. I couldn't help but be reminded of Tarantino's, Kill Bill films while watching Deadpool. They are incredibly similar in their style of fight scenes.

    Sitting in the cinema, the inner critic in me struggled internally. I kept thinking afterwards about the film. What were the flaws? I don't often see a film without pointing out the negatives. Even films I really like, or even love, have flaws. I'm certain that if one sits and picks this apart, you will eventually find some flaws. Perhaps the overall story is paper thin. Perhaps the villain wasn't very compelling as character. Then again, Ajax was honestly serviceable. Ed Skrein gave a great performance, and by the end, you really hate the bastard. He's a generic, or a dick, British villain and the film makes fun of that!

    "Deadpool" and Guardians of the Galaxy were both huge risks that ultimately paid off, big time. As a film, it's nearly perfect. The film does exactly what it needed to do, and more. It introduces Deadpool, sets up his character, and gets you to like him if you didn't already. The non linear narrative was refreshing to see in a superhero film. Everything about this film was different and unique. It's self awareness and breaking of the fourth wall work well; really well. The direction is great, Ryan Reynolds is phenomenal, and the script is fantastic!

    I am aware that to many people (especially those unfamiliar with Deadpool comic or Marvel comics at all) this movie would seem too gory, unnecessary brutal and excessively violent. But this movie is a comedy, where its main protagonist, Deadpool, should be perceived as a comedian, and Ryan Reynolds did an excellent job representing this character.

    The story of Deadpool isn't complex or profound - and it wasn't meant to be. This movie is all about fun and entertainment, abundant with action, jokes, blood and foul language. Therefore, it is not suitable for children. I grew tired of people thinking that movies based on comics are intended for children only.

    Related to that, I believe that many Marvel movies could have been far more successful if they didn't refrain from gory scenes. I am sorry, but if you want to make a serious combat-based movie and you make it without blood, than that movie will be all but serious.

    That is why I see Deadpool as a refreshment. Nowadays many writers and directors are too worried about political correctness in their movies. That really stifles creativity and that is why today we have so many movies with great ideas but poor realization.

    Thus, to me, Deadpool was a very pleasant surprise, I had fun watching it, and I intend to watch it again some time soon.

    Firstly I would like to state that it is completely hilarious reading reviews with One Star because the movie had "Foul Language" and "Sex Scenes" or that someone had no idea that the movie was inappropriate for their 9 year old kid. Dead Pool is rated R and with 3 minutes of research you could have determined if this movie was for you or not With that being said I will not delve into the plot but the acting and writing were fantastic. Ryan Reynolds nailed this role. If you are easily offended by violence, language, or nudity this is not the movie for you but if you have a sense of humor and want to be entertained for 2 straight hours you will love this movie.
  • avatar


    I've said it in other reviews that no movie is perfect. There aren't any movies that actually deserve a perfect score. But what if you were a dead pool fan and you heard that an actor that was a huge fan too, and had already played the character once with horrible results wished for redemption? What if you wanted a comic book movie that would rise above the whole PG-13 cesspool far too many movies are thrown into these days? What character would be completely drowned in such a pool? Wolverine somehow treads that water even with a metal skeleton, though he did finally get unleashed with an R rated send off film (possibly partly thanks to this movie). But Deadpool could never have been done right in a PG-13 movie. The Merc with the Mouth had to have his lips sowed shut the first go round and after that... well... most fans would say he was never truly Deadpool. Including the man who played him.

    Ryan Reynolds deserves significant praise for his persistent pursuit of playing a real Deadpool. And boy does he. The R rating took the comic book genre to a sparkly place I wish it would have gone to years ago. Oh yeah is this movie satisfying for that alone and Reynolds nails it. Possibly thanks to the fact that he actually cared.

    But how good is it as a movie aside from all that? Well, I gave it a ten. It might be more of a nine out of ten movie if it wasn't so special. It was the first R rated movie of its kind and it proved to the people, and the studios, that it could be extremely successful even with that rating. Thank you Deadpool. You deserve an extra star for that alone.

    Deadpool is a 2016 film that the eighth film in the X-Men franchise where The Merc with the Mouth seeks revenge in a humorous way.

    Wade Wilson is a mercenary who spends his time in New York City protecting teenage girls from would-be stalkers. He meets escort Vanessa Carlysle at a local bar and they become romantically attached for nearly a year. He proposes to her one night, then he suddenly collapses and is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Though she remains by his side, he fears losing her.

    One night at the bar that he met Vanessa, he is approached by a recruiter from a secret program. He is offered an experimental cure for his cancer, but he rebuffs the man and leaves. Desperate to live, he reconsiders and leaves Vanessa in the middle of the night to undergo the procedure. He is injected with a special serum by Francis Freeman and tortured for days by Angel Dust in order to trigger a mutation. After weeks of no success, Wade is strapped into an airtight chamber after insulting Francis. The drop in oxygen triggers a healing factor that removes his cancer, but severely disfigures his face and skin in the process. He escapes from the chamber by blowing it up and attempts to kill Francis, only stopping when he claims he can cure Wade's disfigurement. He is then impaled by rebar and left for dead in the destruction of the lab.

    Although he tracks her down, he cannot come to terms with his complexion, and he keeps himself away from Vanessa. Wade moves into the home of an elderly blind woman named Al, and with the advice of his best friend Weasel, he becomes a masked vigilante named "Deadpool", and begins hunting down Francis and dismantling his organization.

    Following a string of leads from various syndicates, Deadpool attacks a convoy of cars on an expressway before getting his hands on Francis, demanding for a cure to his disfigurement. The confrontation is suddenly interrupted by the X-Men Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, who want him to join the team. Their intervention enables Francis to run off, and when Colossus handcuffs himself to Deadpool on their way back to the X-Mansion, Deadpool cuts off his own hand and escapes back to his home.

    The next night, Weasel convinces Deadpool to go back to Vanessa, but when they arrive at the strip club she works at, Deadpool discovers that she has been kidnapped, and Francis and Angel Dust tell him to meet up with them on a decommissioned aircraft carrier at a scrapyard.

    Deadpool convinces Colossus and Negasonic to help him, and the trio take a cab to the scrapyard, where Colossus and Negasonic have a grueling battle with Angel Dust while Deadpool slashes through an army of goons on his way toward Francis. Deadpool and Francis then engage in a bloody hand-to-hand combat before Negasonic uses her power to destroy the aircraft carrier. In the end, Deadpool gains the upper hand in the fight and Francis admits that there is no cure for Wade's disfigurement. Although Colossus urges Deadpool to spare Francis and be a true hero, he shoots Francis in the head, finally killing him and avenging himself. Deadpool removes his mask and shows Vanessa his new face. Though she is angry that he left her, she accepts him and they reconcile by kissing.

    In a post-credits scene, Deadpool urges the audience to leave and go home, then announces that there will be a sequel involving Cable.

    Let me say at the very beginning of this review, I loathe super hero movies. I can not stress that point enough. For me, watching anyone of the countless driveling movies which have been pumped out by studios in the name of entertainment over the past decade is, for me, akin to having teeth pulled. Painful to say the least. My friends however are addicted to every single bombastic franchise, and through sufferance, I've endured countless hours of mind numbing boredom watching yet more Lycra-clad numpties saving the earth from ridiculous threat (there are of course exceptions to the above; 'The Dark Knight', the original 'X-Men)

    I was once again convinced that spending an evening with chums watching Deadpool would be an excellent waste of my time. I envisaged 15 minutes of feigned interest, followed by an hour 45 of updating my email and some cheeky online shopping. Well that new Morphy Richards kettle and toaster are still waiting for me to purchase as low and behold, shock of all shocks, this film is bloody marvellous!! Bloody, hold your knickers cause they are about to get blown off, marvellous!

    The dialogue is witty, sincere, and delivered by every single actor with a naturalism which seems more like improvised off the cuff genius, than drab scripted nonsense.

    The pacing of the movie is excellent. It held my interest through its entirety.

    The actions scenes directed with the skill of a more seasoned director.

    I was so pleased that for once, I was being forced to watch a movie that treated me like an adult, with adult humour and themes, made for adults. Not for grown children masquerading as adults.

    This film is a perfect storm! Just everything is right! I look forward, to my great surprise to any squeals!

    In a world.. where superhero movies are often unnecessarily dark and gritty, #Deadpool comes along and shows you how it's done! It's the perfect combo of action, comedy, and R-rating that really don't give two sh*ts about your sensitivity. Do you remember that warm blueberry pie that your grandma made for you when you were younger or the time you saw that girl you've been crushing on during chemistry class in high school? Well, you can throw those memories out the window now and make way for DEADPOOL.

    Ryan Reynolds plays a skilled special forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, Morena Baccarin plays his hot-ass girlfriend, Vanessa. This woman is the embodiment of sexy. They are a match made in Marvel Comics' heaven. But their dream is crushed upon discovering that Wilson has cancer all over, a situation that forces him to sign up to a rogue experiment that subjects him to accelerated healing powers. The lab is run by Francis/Ajax (Ed Skrein) who himself is a bit of a mutant. The brutal experiments turn Wade Wilson into an ugly dude but an indestructible one. He's now bent on revenge, especially after Ajax kidnaps Vanessa. Meanwhile Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead from the X-Men, try their best to convince Deadpool to join their team and become one of the good guys. But let's face it, that ain't DEADPOOL's style! The first people we have to thank of course would be the original comic book writers/creators Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld who brilliantly gave us this very unique superhero unlike any other. The next people in line to thank are screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick who remind us why we loved "Zombieland" back in 2009, they inject the same brand of humor into DEADPOOL and keep the character faithful to the comic books, yes, by that I mean none of that crap version of Wade Wilson in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" anymore! Applause goes to Tim Miller as well, what a helluva feature directorial debut, clearly when you give a superhero project to a geek who loves the material and knows it inside out, if you just let him run with it, it's like giving G.I. Joe toys to a kid who can name them all by heart, great things can happen.

    For those of you who are not familiar with DEADPOOL, just a heads up, this movie, just like the comics, is extremely over the top graphic in terms of sex, violence and humor, and that's exactly how we like it. Wade Wilson is a chatterbox, he talks a lot, to some this can get annoying, while to the rest, it's music to our ears, mainly because of the sh*t he says. And he breaks fourth wall, meaning he'll talk to you the audience. But what's even more epic than that is the fact that he is AWARE of the universe that he's in and the universe that you're in, and those two collide in the most epic way possible, so Ryan Reynolds' character, Wade Wilson, makes fun of Ryan Reynolds the actor and also mocks Ryan Reynolds' previous poor decisions like Green Lantern and People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive This movie is a dream come true for those of you hardcore fans, it even has what I think is one of the greatest most hilarious opening credit scenes in the history of cinema. For a while, I heard that the studio wanted the film to include more mutants, but I'm glad the filmmakers kept things to just a few characters for this first installment a.k.a origin story, so it's simple enough for the new fans to follow. I love how the humor is so brash and unapologetic, it's like insult comedy or one of them roast shows, everybody is fair game. The fights are rock 'em sock 'em and the VFX is impressive! And I can't be happier for Ryan Reynolds, I'm sure he had been wanting to redeem himself since "Green Lantern" and whatever the hell that was in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," so with this DEADPOOL movie, he finally got it right, you can tell he desperately wanted to be part of this superhero genre, and so now he's really part of the gang. He was born for this role. He was destined to play this. In many ways, Deadpool is kinda like Van Wilder on crack. And actress Morena Baccarin as Vanessa… well, let's just say that after watching this movie, every guy on earth will wonder, 'Why can't my girlfriend be more like that!' If you're looking for a date movie, DEADPOOL is it. if you're looking for an action-packed movie, DEADPOOL is definitely most certainly it.

    One word describes this movie - pointless.

    Wow, this film was incredibly boring. People are hyping this movie over nothing. The story is so simple and boring. It didn't even feel like I was watching a thought-provoking movie, more like a short and simple TV series with an unfunny, forced and pointless main character on his pointless adventure to fight forgettable and pointless villains.

    The X-men were pointless as well. They didn't add anything to the story. They only assisted Deadpool with fighting the villains when their original goal was to have deadpool work for them. They happily accepted Deadpool as a murderer and wished a murderer to join them.

    The only okay point in this movie was the action. However, the action still could have been better as it felt very rushed at times, and at other times very short and at times it lacked in good choreography. It didn't feel intense at all, more like you know the villains are going to fail very easily.

    I also hated the use of childish words being used quite a bit to explain the purpose of the weapon x program e.g. "superheroes", "superslaves" etc. What are these villains even doing? There was nothing deep and meaningful behind the program and these villains. The story was lacking in too many ways. The world felt very empty and hollow.

    Looks like people are very cheap and easy nowadays that they would enjoy anything just because it is r-rated. That is the truth, that is the only reason this movie has such a high rating because of the use of "F" words and other vulgar words, it has sex and nude scenes and it is gory and violent. None of this is new. Again, the Story and Characters are terrible.
  • avatar


    If you enjoy sitting in on conversations that are typical of young and foolish teenage boys this is the movie for you. Every other line contains the F word and for some reason the director thought penis jokes are the funniest around.

    The story is about as hollow as the humor. It's a cheap and bland story about revenge and invincibility painted with a veneer of "love" that is as misguided as the character's personality.The movie is littered with sarcasm and cynicism that just becomes depressing after a while.

    Ryan Reynolds acts like a 13 year old boy throughout the movie, cursing and making penis jokes and then talking to the audience thinking he is very funny.

    This is the most overrated movie I've seen. Most of these reviews on IMDb had to have been paid for. Hollywood had to have paid for this hype or people these days have really low standards. This is a low brow film like no other.

    Save 2 hours of your life and do not watch this movie.

    With a brilliant script, visceral action, and a Oscar-worthy performance by lead Ryan Reynolds, 2016's Deadpool takes superhero and comedy films into a new direction and proves that comic book movies still have a lot more to offer.

    Proof of the benefits of filmmakers taking risks rather than following the working formula, Deadpool takes the superhero genre and heightens it with its unapologetic offensive humor, bloody and intense violence, as well as a excellent cast and script. Deadpool is an example to not only based ones characters and stories off of the original material, but to embrace the heart and soul of the comic book medium as a whole.
  • avatar


    The long awaited Deadpool is finally and with its much talked about "hard R" rating. Starring Ryan Reynolds as a quick taking, fourth- wall breaking, insult throwing, masked superhero, we hear about how Deadpool became Deadpool told in flashback sequences, while simultaneously following a present day plot as well.

    The question for the average movie goer is "Is this film really as good and as raunchy as everyone says?" No it isn't.

    I don't mean to ramble much so I'll start with the good, this film does have some humorous moments and most of the supporting characters are very entertaining to watch. And yes this film also does have some good action sequences

    Sadly, that is where the good ends. This films tries very hard to be edgy and raunchy, as well as claiming to not be your average Marvel film because of those following reasons. But let me assure you; This film is most definitely very similar to all of the other Marvel films. By saying "fuck" a few times, showing breasts at a strip club and throwing childish insults such as "dicktits" is not smart filmmaking or screen writing. It is easy adolescent humor. This film has a simple plot that is easy to follow and is spoonfed to you. I have seen good comedies and I have seen good superhero films and this excels in neither.

    In this films defense it may not try to be anything other than feel- good-fun-turn-your-brain-off type film, but that within itself is lazy filmmaking. I shouldn't have to turn my brain off to have enjoy a film.

    First off, I do not read comics so I do not know the source material, I am not a fan-boy of Marvel or DC I just want to see entertaining movies, I may be in the minority at least during it's first week of being in theaters but I wanted to write a review to warn others what Deadpool is like.

    The movie is honestly a nonstop exercise in profanity with a lot of sex jokes and masturbation jokes especially. I am fine with low brow humor when it is funny. The writers just seem to have Reynolds throw out as many wisecracks as possible and hope that some are funny. I think anyone over 30 will be bored with the jokes. There is nothing that offends me from hearing all these jokes but rather bores me because the lack of humor. It is very much like having to listen to some teen kids try to show off by using non stop profanity only to realize they are just making themselves look dumb.

    The plot is nothing more than a simple background (origins) story and it is run of the mill. The movie has a lot of violence but nothing creative. The movie is very similar to Super and the Kick Ass movies. However, those movies were superior to Deadpool on every level IMO. The movie also reminds me of the Vacation remake. The 2015 remake of vacation was pretty much one raunchy joke after another but they are not funny.

    This movie may just be better for younger audiences but I still feel the 30 and up demographics are not going to find this to be a very good movies unless they are a fan of the source material.

    I give it a 2 out of 10. It gets an 2 instead of 1 only because Morena Baccarin was a side character. She did the best she could with the limited material.

    Ryan Reynolds is the embodiment of the Deadpool character. He did an absolutely awesome job and made the movie as epic as it is. In my opinion his sense of humour perfectly matches that of the original character. Before watching the movie, I was a bit afraid the story of Wade would slowdown the roller-coaster ride, bit it is nicely scattered throughout the movie. Not so much to lose track of the original storyline and not too little to be oblivious of where the superhero comes from. I think I would have enjoyed it a bit more if more of the Marvel universe was pulled into the story, but I'm not completely sure of it :). The fourth wall being broken here and there is very refreshing and very Deadpool.

    Out of all Marvel movies made, Deadpool was the worst. The main character talks too much it became very annoying after 5 minutes. The jokes were not funny. The scene transition between flashbacks and present conditions were not well done.

    They tried to put in 2 X-Men character in the worst possible way. It really shows that the studio had no budget for many characters, but instead they invested a lot in the slow-motion special effect, which was cool.

    In terms of story-line, there's no story. There's no character building as well. For about 2 hours, all you can do is endure the horrible blabber mouth of the main character. Not funny and irritate the ear.

    I wonder how many people did the studio pay to write in good reviews in this website...

    Worst Marvel Movie Ever.
  • avatar


    Based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is the eighth installment in the X-Men film series. It follows Wade Wilson who, after being subjected to an experiment that leaves him with new abilities, hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

    From the studio that inexplicably sewed his *beep* mouth shut the first time, comes... Deadpool. It may not have been the superhero that Hollywood wanted, but he's certainly the one they deserve. After years of speculation as to whether or not everyones favourite anti-superhero would actually get made into a standalone picture, Tim Miller's Deadpool has arrived. Do not let the February release date fool you, this is very much the film that both fans of the character and Ryan Reynolds have been waiting for. Full of comedic snark and constant fourth wall breaks (and Inception style fourth wall breaks within those), it delivers every bit upon its promise, a truly entertaining ride from start to finish. Minutes into opening credits, you are gracefully dropped into the self-aware world of the film, with notable credits such as "directed by an overpaid tool," and "produced by *beep*hats." If that does not sell you on what kind of comedy Deadpool brings to the table, then you can always catch a screening of Zoolander 2 next door. When it comes down to it, Deadpool is one part vendetta film, one part romantic tale a la "Beauty and the Beast" style. This is the role that Ryan Reynolds were born to play. It's been a passion project for the actor for many years, and it shows. He is to the Deadpool franchise (the sequel were already planned ahead of its release) what Robert Downey Jr. is to Iron Man. You cannot imagine anyone else possibly playing the role. Erased from memory is the X-Men Origins: Wolverine version that Reynolds played in 2009. What a relief. The tie-in to the world of X-Men is somewhat limited aside from the inclusion of Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead. I will not saying more. At the end of the day, Deadpool's re-watch factor is sky high, possibly the most important success of them all. I'm touching myself tonight.

    If I've to keep it short - the movie is really, really bad.

    There are plenty of jokes, plenty, even when yo don't want one. These jokes are true to Deadpool, but that's it. They are the jokes Deadpool would crack, but most of the time they missed the mark and were not even remotely funny.

    There's absolutely no story in the movie, none at all. On top of that if you've watched all the trailers, watching movie is worthless. The entire story is - Ajax converted Wade into Deadpool, Deadpool searched him to fix his face and once it's cleared that Ajax is not going to do that, Deadpool killed him. Yeah, entire 10 minutes stretched into a almost 2 hour movie. On top of that, for some reason Ajax kidnaps Pool's girlfriend and sets target on his back.

    It makes no sense.

    Apart from jokes, Deadpool also has inner voice, but not in this movie. He's most of the time blabbering to himself because of that, making it much more unfunny.

    There cannot be much said about the movie as it's just extended trailer done badly.

    This movie is a huge disappointment, and a waste of money and time. The jokes are stupid and I realize that Deadpool is not what it was cracked up to be. Too bad as I usually love the Marvel movies. It seems forced, and the jokes actually become tedious and not really with any sophistication at any level, more adolescent bathroom style humor. The story and plot is also dull and tedious which goes along with the dull and tedious jokes. At times I thought to walk out, but kept hoping that there would be a redeeming aspect as many of the reviews were positive, I kept hoping. This movie is more about money-making hype, with its non existent story/plot and childish humor with no depth. A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.

    Barney the Dinosaur is more entertaining than this movie. yeah sure, when he cracks one or two jokes, its funny, but my gosh he would go on and on !

    Regarding the sexual scenes of the movie, if one wants to watch porn, they'd watch porn. I don't know which woman enjoys a man that talks from beginning to end ? Even during sex he is cracking lame jokes. Cant get any more ridiculous than that !

    As for the storyline , couldn't they add a little more detail. Its like they thought making him blabber throughout the movie will allow them to cut some finer details out.

    One of the worst movies ever made in the last century !

    The film is made out of Ryan Reynolds, throwing lame jokes to the camera. In between there are bullets and knifes. No surprises. No ideas. The story is simple and silly and boring. Man sleeps with woman long in different scenes (Teens hello! Better watch porn, there are more details!) Man go's to basement to become special. (Teens like to be special) Man becomes special and kills all bad guys around him. THE END

    The jokes are not only lame, they are old. For example the joke with the red shirt and brown trousers I heard from my grandpa.

    Don't waste your time with this film. Marvell tries to squeeze out last cents out of the theme. Bad films will follow.

    Hooo boy! The year has barely started and already we have shots fired. In the battle to earn your comic book movie love (And dollars) Marvel has come charging out of the gate. After a dearth of comic book films last year Deadpool comes out swinging giving us a reason to love the summer again and it ain't even March. The film begins with an ambitious opening scene, the credits of which, perfectly set the tone of the movie from the get-go: funny, irreverent and self-aware. Marvel appears to have adopted a doctrine of making their films be entertaining (Imagine that!) above any other concerns and Deadpool seems to be a culmination of that philosophy. It is a testament to the skill and commitment of Marvel and the makers that they can get so much mileage out of one second tier character, and half the budget, than other companies can with four first rate ones, fantastic or otherwise. (Way to redeem yourself 20th Century Fox!) Not bad for a character that was a created as a joke. (For the non-initiated, Deadpool started life as a blatant clone of Deathstroke, a character from DC Comics, Marvel's main competitor.)

    In all this the film is aided in great part by a crackling script that never lets up. Whereas too many action movies treat the scenes between set pieces as filler packed with exposition and the occasional comic relief, Deadpool deftly weaves between wise- cracking slapstick, violent acrobatics and scenes of serious peril with effortless ease. The result of all of this is a movie that is engaging throughout whether featuring profane, brilliant banter or graphical, bloody shootouts. For the film wears that R rating proudly with enough sex and violent to make Paul Verhoeven get all misty-eyed. It is not surprise there is already a sequel in the works.

    Another revelation here is Reynolds himself who in Deadpool seems to have found his Iron Man, a character so indelibly linked to the actor that plays him that you cannot imagine anyone else playing him. And his work here acts as vindication of that whole Wolverine debacle which we won't mention ever again. But the secret ingredient in the Deadpool stew is geek heroine Morena Baccarin, who, besides being cute as a button brings the acting chops honed in fan favorites like Gotham and Firefly or even as the darnest adorable reptilian alien ever in the short-lived "V" reboot. Baccarin has the perfect easy-going confidence to match Reynold's sardonic bravado and their superb and convincing on-screen chemistry provides the impetus for Deadpool's heroic arc.

    For despite all the foul language, gore and masturbation jokes, this is a story that is surprisingly tender. It turns out it wasn't just a marketing gimmick and, Deadpool, really is a love story. To be sure, one with more severed body parts than your average love yarn but a love story nonetheless. Starting a new franchise is always risky and studios hate taking risks. Whatever your stance on comic books is, the fact remains this movie should not have been this good. The writers and director have shown what can be achieved with bold writing and an unapologetic attitude, and, more importantly, that comic book movies need not be made for kids to be enjoyable or, indeed, successful. Here's to hoping that trend will continue. Hopefully Hollywood will take notice.

    Parent's Brief

    Rated: R Running Time: 108 minutes On Sex and Violence: Plenty of both. There is graphic violence of the gratuitous kind. People get shot in all kinds of places and I mean their bodies not exotic locations. Limbs get bloodily cut off. A lot of foul language which I don't mind but I'm not here to judge. Deadpool and his love interest get into some vigorous love making and elsewhere there is some brief frontal nudity. Boobies. Boobies are shown. So yeah. Don't take the kids.

    We live in a time where super hero movies are all the rage. Who doesn't love a good super hero throw down, cool origin stories, and awesome villains? While decent hero flicks are easy enough to find, occasionally a masterpiece, like "The Dark Knight", will come along and in the process wow the critics and audiences alike.

    And then we get Deadpool. Where to start with this one? To give it some comparison, it makes "Batman and Robin" look like an Academy Award-winner by comparison. How is that? Quite simply put, the movie is terrible in every sense of the word.

    Deadpool is untrue to its source material and to the very character himself. The character is known for his violence and humor throughout his comic book, TV show, and video game appearances. The filmmakers, in their apparent efforts to make the character more "edgy" and appeal more to adults, have stripped him of this, instead replacing the comedy and fun with crude dialogue, sex, sex, more sex, and more foul words than possibly all of Eminem and Lil Wayne's albums combined, and all of this without any of the substance that have made Wade Wilson's adventures and misadventures alike over the years so memorable, exciting, and laugh-out-loud funny.

    No wit, and no soul. It insults the intelligence of its audience, and then expects them to pay. We've come a long way in terms of the quality of super hero films; to call this a step back could potentially be the biggest understatement of the year.

    For those who have been waiting for a good Deadpool film, this unfortunately is not it. Perhaps the best on-screen appearance to- date can be found in the animated short "Hulk v.s. Wolverine", but for the time being we're still going to have to wait for our favorite "Merc with the Mouth" to get the big-screen sensation that he deserves.
