Did You Know?

Trivia

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. See more »

Goofs

At the end, when Vanessa is thrown off the helicarrier, it's easily 200 foot down for her. Even if the tube is strong enough to survive that and all the debris falling on top of it, she's not strapped in, meaning she would smack every which way and probably break every bone in her body. See more »

Quotes

Deadpool: Kinda lonesome back here.

Deadpool: Yeah, little help.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits are placeholders for what was in the script, since Director Tim Miller (who asked Blur Studio's Layout Supervisor Franck Balson to remove his quickly) and Ryan Reynolds were the only ones. "As written by Deadpool"; "Some douchebag's film, Starring God's perfect idiot (referring to Ryan. Accompanied by an Easter Egg of Ryan's People Magazine cover as Sexiest Man Alive.); "A hot chick"; "A British villain"; "The comic relief"; "A moody teen"; "A CGI character"; "A gratuitous cameo"; "Produced by asshats"; "Written by the real heroes here"; "Directed by an overpaid tool". There are Easter Eggs as well: The card in the wallet of Ryan in a green suit, a blurry Killebrew being on the phone, the thug with the lighter was originally a filmed joke in reference to Colin Farrell in Daredevil (2003), "Rob L." on the coffee cup is Rob Liefeld, the little sex key-chain, the Orange Number 5 card, and the Hello Kitty.

Alternate Versions

The theatrical and DVD releases were censored by the CBFC in India to secure an A rating (restricted to adults i.e. 18+):
  • 'Asshole', 'motherfucker', 'balls', 'blowjob', 'touching myself', '24 ball gags', 'vagina', 'bitch', 'dick', 'suck a cock', 'testicles' and 'dildo' were all muted.
  • The triple headshot in the highway fight was removed.
  • Nudity, thrusting and innuendos were removed from the sex scene.
  • Deadpool cutting his hand off was removed and replaced with shots of Colossus.
  • A poster showing a woman touching her vagina was removed.
  • Shots of naked women in the strip club were removed.
  • Blood and gore in the final fight was removed.
  • Anti-smoking disclaimers and a health spot were added to the beginning and middle of the film. Static, scrolling messages were also added whenever a character is shown smoking.
The general censorship of violence/sex/swearing totaled 3 minutes and 53 seconds. The anti-smoking additions were voluntary and totaled exactly 2 minutes. The Indian Blu-ray release is uncut (despite also showing an A certificate on the back cover). See more »

A new landmark for superhero and comedy films
10 June 2017 | by Will_HarrisonSee all my reviews

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.
