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, physically, 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 you're 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".

In the scene near the end where Ajax has a knife in the side of Deadpool's head and is punching him, later Deadpool pulls the knife out. In a follow up shot there is no hole in the mask where the knife was, but in a later shot the hole is there. See more »

a much needed breath of fresh air in a stale genre
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
