Newest trend in superheros: vulgar and obscene. IOW, it's alright to say fuck.

Image
A former Special Forces operative turned mercenary is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers and adopts the alter ego Deadpool.

Director: Tim Miller
Writers: Rhett Reese (screenplay), Paul Wernick (screenplay)
Stars: Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano
Frankly, I'm pretty much Super Hero'd out but the trailer looks interesting. Here's a review snip from Wired:
Deadpool is a Marvel creation, but this sure isn’t a Disney property. Fox wants you to know it’s got all that R-rated goodness you’ve been craving in a superhero movie, brought to you by the always mouthy and always game Ryan “The Ultimate Body” Reynolds. Sex, guns, massive head wounds, nudity, blood spatter, Salt-N-Pepa, katanas, Gina Carano and more are all here for your viewing pleasure. Between this and Suicide Squad, 2016 is going to be the breakout year for hard living antiheroes. It’s about damn time.
Here's the trailer, faggots.

Here's the thing... if there's something a superhero movie shouldn't do, it belongs in a Deadpool movie almost by definition.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

What gnome said.

Deadpool is a very...different superhero. A R rated superhero fits deadpool better than most. A square jawed, tousle haired defender of all that is good and pure he ain't.

Really, why would anyone want to remake one of the weaker of the Dirty Harry franchise?

Surely there is a Japanese Original?

Nice cameo by Colossus.

Anyway, in this movie Deadpool gets to be the smartass Spider-Man never was in his movies. Although I haven't seen the recent reboots so I dunno for sure.

Andrew Garfield was better in this regard than Tobey. but obviously a bit class salty than Deadpool will be. The problems with the reboot movies weren't really with Garfield's performance.

To be a proper Deadpool movie, it will have to break the "fourth wall" and talk to the audience at some point.

Deadpool isn't a trend. Ryan Reynolds has basically led a sabotage campaign to get the movie made.

Yeah, saw it twice opening night...long story. But fun shit. Maybe a little too Family Guy in its humor, but quite good after all. The fight scenes were visceral and better than most.

I loved, loved LOVED this movie. Funny as hell and lots of action. It most assuredly was not one of those movies where the only good parts were in the trailer.

Ryan Reynolds can now be forgiven for Green Lantern

They had me at the opening credits.

I also particularly like all of the peppered in references to Green Lantern, his previous appearance as Deadpool in that awful Wolverine movie, and the continuity issues with the Fox films.

Stop reading this and go watch the movie. If you finished the last sentence you are stalling. Go.

It's better than The Princess Bride.
