Based upon Marvel Comics most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Did You Know?


Wade was initially going to appear as an additional villain, but was cut for unknown reasons. There were also plans to have the Marvel superhero Cable appear, but it was decided that he would work better in a future installment if one is made.

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

A 3 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 1st 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 part of it was recreated for the actual film.

Ryan Reynolds has said that Deadpool will be the last comic book character he will ever portray. However, he is open to Deadpool sequels and/or cameos.

This version of Deadpool differs from the one in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) due to the change in timeline during X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).

In the trailer 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.

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.

I can confirm that the movie has been rated 18 by the NVFCB.

So, as I often say! whatever the case may be, however the week is going, everyone needs a little relaxation time as often as possible and it remains our pleasure to offer you that and so much more, because your comfort remains our priority. Until next week stay blessed.
