Through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, 13-year-old Connor McGrath, a terminally ill fan from Edmonton, requested to attend the special event for Deadpool (2016) in January, which turned out to be one of the two special screenings in New York and Los Angeles for the fans. He couldn't make it, due to the severity of his illness. Ryan Reynolds heard his story, traveled to Edmonton, and surprised him with a private special screening of the film. Reynolds said the boy was the first person ever to see the film. They kept in touch until Connor's passing a few months later. Reynolds paid tribute to him on his social-media pages. See more »
(at around 26 mins) The pose that Wade and Vanessa do when they take their selfie is different from what the picture shows later in the movie. When the picture is taken, Wade is smiling but not showing teeth, Vanessa's hands are on Wade's ears, and she has the ring pop on her left ring finger. When the picture is shown later (at around 1h 10 mins), Wade is smiling with a lot of teeth showing, Vanessa's hands are on his face and not his ears, and the ring pop is nowhere to be seen.

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 »

I am aware that to many people (especially those unfamiliar with Deadpool comic or Marvel comics at all) this movie would seem too gory, unnecessary brutal and excessively violent. But this movie is a comedy, where its main protagonist, Deadpool, should be perceived as a comedian, and Ryan Reynolds did an excellent job representing this character.
The story of Deadpool isn't complex or profound - and it wasn't meant to be. This movie is all about fun and entertainment, abundant with action, jokes, blood and foul language. Therefore, it is not suitable for children. I grew tired of people thinking that movies based on comics are intended for children only.
Related to that, I believe that many Marvel movies could have been far more successful if they didn't refrain from gory scenes. I am sorry, but if you want to make a serious combat-based movie and you make it without blood, than that movie will be all but serious.
That is why I see Deadpool as a refreshment. Nowadays many writers and directors are too worried about political correctness in their movies. That really stifles creativity and that is why today we have so many movies with great ideas but poor realization.
Thus, to me, Deadpool was a very pleasant surprise, I had fun watching it, and I intend to watch it again some time soon.
