Deadpool Giving a Big Jolly Thumbs Up

Dead-end?....A Leak That Caused a Pool 

Ryan Reynolds spent a lot of time trying to make the Deadpool movie a reality, 11 years in fact! Talk about dedication to your project! 

Film fans helped in getting the script off the ground, having sat on a shelf for 6 years the script was leaked online and those who read it went crazy for the movie to be created. 

As a result of the public outcry for something to be done, the studio sat up and listened and granting a small budget for test footage to be made – the test footage also sat on the shelf…for a further four years! 

Luckily the footage was “accidentally” leaked online, the list of possible culprits is quite a short one, but Reynolds claims he is 70 percent sure it wasn’t him! 

Fox had to listen when fans went nuts for the released footage and gave the Deadpool project the green-light. 

With Deadpool pulling in over $783 million worldwide with its 2016 release and Deadpool 2 a further $778.9 million in 2018, no doubt Fox is willing to forgive whoever leaked the footage!

Who is This Deadpool?

Deadpool, whose real name is Wade Wilson, was given super healing powers as a result of the Weapon X experiment!

The Weapon X project turns unwilling participants into weapons, often capturing mutants for their experiments but also using baseline humans – including our trigger-happy friend, Wade Wilson.

Wade was diagnosed with cancer at the time of his Weapon X experience and his cancerous cells regenerate just as quickly as his normal cells. The result was that Wade's entire body was left scarred – resulting in the use of that pretty red suit!

Deadpool is a Mercenary trained in Martial Arts and is a skilled Swordsman, who has a goofy personality and a love for violence!

  • Deadpool is the best, my favourite foul mouth hero. And anyone who thinks otherwise can fight me!

  • He does and says what he wants, he has some of the best comebacks and one-liners. He’s sarcastic. He isn’t afraid to be himself.

    Kirsty Wotherspoon
  • His humour and ability to see the 4th wall. He wouldnt be deadpool without them

  • Deadpool has no filter, speaks the truth, has a good perverted heart and enjoys his job. He embodies all that we should strive to be in his morals…perhaps actions are best left to the merc with the mouth though

    Angharad Milton
  • Deadpool is what all the marvel characters wanna do and say but are too scared .
    Deadpool always give maximum effort and doesn’t give a f*#cksicle about what people think
    Love it 😊

  • Deadpool is unique – when I watch the films I want to read the comics – the film makes me laugh

  • The thing that makes deadpool stand out from the other marvel superheroes is that, whatever he does, he can find a way to do it over the top, he’s like a ballet dancer with a chainsaw, or a farmer with a monster truck. There’s no practical use for any of his choices, but there’s nothing stopping him from doing it.

    Ben Kirk-Emes
  • His kick ass. Not only does he move around like a deadly ballet watching his enemies drop with such dramatic effect, his humour is awesome and his passion is clear. Love him!

    Emma Goodband
  • Deadpool is an amazing marvel character because it is like if Saw mixed with Ryan Reynolds. Gore and comedy = Goremedy

  • I love the violence mixed with humour and how deadpool constantly breaks the fourth wall to discuss things with the audience.

    Helen TobinPerry
  • What sets deadpool apart from all other superheroes is how crude and violent and hilarious he is and anti PC (and he gets away with it) also how he fits quips in about DC , he’s amazing

  • I think what sets him apart is how anti-hero he is and how he can break through the fourth wall is hilarious. He is also so much more gory and cruder than a usual superhero, I know my dad never fails to laugh at every scene he finds funny again and again while watching the movies (normally delayed reactions and bless him you’d think he wouldn’t react the same way)

  • Deadpool is the most super anti hero there is. He knows what has to be done and he often goes a round about the Bush kind of way to do it. But he still gets the job done even if he does mess up often!

    Louise McKie
  • What sets Deadpool apart from other Marvel supers is how unhinged he is and how dark his humour can be.

    Courtney Slater
  • I just like that’s hes a sarcastic mofo, all the other marvel ‘superheroes’ (can deadpool really be classed as a superhero?😂) are so serious and desperate to impress, Deadpool wings it and hopes for the best and always has to add a bit extra spice with a smart mouth comment 😂😂😂

    Sophie Kennedy
  • What sets Deadpool apart is his sense of humour, am eagerly awaiting Deadpool 3!

    Debbie Wright
  • I would love to win this epic deadpool bundle, my husband is a huge fan so winning would literally take his breath away! Everything is crossed

    Kimberley jane
  • i love the humour from deadpool and the way he always say it exactly as it is without caring who is near him

    donna skelton
  • I like Deadpool for reasons like everyone else does Lol he’s funny and goofy so on.
  • Dead pool is different, he’s more lifelike in his mannerisms, he swears, he is what more super hero’s should be violent towards criminals, with a relatable sense of humour, definitely the best super hero to date 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    Paul fearn
  • He has burns all over him- and doesn’t care! <3 Yay for imperfect superheroes!

    Sara Bellisio
  • I just love Deadpool, his Sarcasm his love for Vanessa and Played by Ryan Reynolds it’s hilarious

    Amanda Ruff
  • He’s badass with a good heart and has a level of relatability. On that note … did I leave the stove on ?

    Eleanor P
  • I love Deadpool he’s the only marvel character that doesn’t take things seriously you get a lot of laughs. Plus Ryan Reynolds plays the part so well he’s perfect for it 👌🏼 I bought my partner the Deadpool costume last year for Halloween Looks ace and he loves it

  • I love Deadpool because he is absolutely hilarious. The movies are so different to any other superhero films. Deadpool breaks all the rules

    Louise Dempsey
  • I love Deadpools humour, also I think Ryan Reynolds made a perfect role as him in the movies as he is comedy gold. Most marvel movies are very serious but deadpool is unique compared to them.

    Lucie Green
  • Most marvel films are very serious. I like Deadpool his different and I think that people can relate to him more then other marvel characters. And after all his gone threw his still fighting threw it all to be with Vanessa ♥️

    Melissa Hurt
  • The thing I like about Deadpool so much is that he’s been through some real issues, he’s come out swinging with a dry sense of humour to boot and how many heroes can blow themselves up and regrow while making dry comments about it 😂

  • He’s a cool looking dude but he will never over take iron man😋

    Rebecca Scullion
  • Deadpool has the best humour, he is the cheeky naughty boy of the supers, but with a good heart. My kind of guy 😘

  • I think what sets Deadpool apart from the other Marvel films is the dark humour and language. It’s less “family friendly” and more focussed on an adult audience, so it can deal with some of the darker issues that the other movies can only touch on. I personally love the Deadpool movies, and so does my fiancé!

    Amy B
  • Definitely the funniest super

  • Deadpool is awesome 😎

  • Deadpool’s humour is what sets him apart from all the other character in the superhero universe, he references other hero movies in his own and no other hero could do that at least not as funny as him.
