    Warning for the young 'uns - this will be an R rated movie so watch at your own discretion.

    The quality of this footage is pretty poor, but the dialogue is very clear. I think I'll be watching this one :)

    Your link is dead sadly but here is a fresh one.

    I don't envy them making this film in particular; my casual understanding of Deadpool is that he's a very quirky character who even breaks the 4th wall on repeat occasions.
    Indeed it will be interesting to see how they deal with a character who is basically chaotic in all ways and not (from what I understand) fully allied to good nor evil (though more toward the good than evil in general).

    He's a mature, crude, 4th wall breaking character - yet manages to retain a sense of class to the crudeness that; in my mind; rises above the "you laugh when drunk at this.*"



    *A good example of something which you should be drunk to enjoy is something like Team America

    Isn't that a fan trailer? Clearly they're using footage of the test footage which has been out for a very long time now and was made mostly if not completely of CGI. And if I'm not mistaken they're using footage of the first Wolverine trailer.

    Not having read any of the comics before seeing the movie, I still really enjoyed Deadpool, although I'll never think of International Women's Day the same way again :D

    Who else has seen it? What did you think?

    I watched the film because my friends dragged me to the cinema.

    Long story short: too serious for being a good joke film, too jokeish for being a serious film. At least for my standards.

    I personally thought it was a perfect balance of a joking type hero getting a moment of seriousness. And the 4th wall breaking was perfectly timed without being overly used. All in all I thought it was a really good movie.

    I didn't know much about the character but I watched the movie anyways. It seemed pretty legit.
    I must say I really enjoyed his sense of humor;) That, and the fact that he was played by Ryan Reynold in general. He always makes for a great superhero.
