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.

User Reviews

 
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.
