Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (a.k.a. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg Cable.
Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
This is 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.Written by

(at around 12 mins) The bit where Deadpool is shot in the a*shole was added a week before filming. He was originally going to be shot in the face. See more »
(at around 6 mins) During the highway battle Deadpool mentions he has only twelve rounds for his Desert Eagle handguns. The Desert Eagle XIX which Deadpool carries (evidenced by the '50 AE' stamped on the fired shell casings) has a magazine capacity of seven rounds plus one in the chamber. Deadpool should have had at least two more bullets. However, as can be seen earlier (when he is counting bullets in the taxi) one of his pistols only had four bullets in it, for reasons that are never explained. See more »
Kinda lonesome back here.

The opening credits appear in a zoom out of a frozen moment from Deadpool's highway fight. The zoom shot contains a variety of jokes and Easter eggs, and ends with a children's drawing of the title character. 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
