OMG ......   So Funny and for a lot of the wrong reasons  Grin As you may be aware I am not a follower of comics so I am unaware of the history behind a lot of these characters.
A colleague at work has been waxing on about Deadpool in the comics so I had a vague clue as to what the film may entail. I have to say I thought it was brilliant, I was not expecting to belly laugh quite so much especially given the violence level ..... Just fantastic.

I loved the 4th wall bits and the cultural references especially ......... I wont spoil it but please watch to the bitter end I loved it and I get an excuse to watch something else as Carole was unaware of the reference  thumbs up

I was feeling jaded by the whole Marvelverse at this point and I'm still pretty sure I won't want to go see Civil War but this film, much like Guardians, is a very welcome break from the rinse...repeat cycle

Well Done...

Yeah, Deadpool was a real labour of love on the behalf of Ryan Renolds and the guys behind it. It took them a lot to get it to screen, but it really shows at the end of the day and it's great to hear it's doing so well.

Worth remembering though, it's not part of the marvel cinematic universe, it's maybe linked with the X-Men film universe though I wouldn't expect a callback in the Apocalypse film.

Though the big carrier at the end? There's a reason why it looks suspiciously similar to the shield heli-carrier but was never called out. Quite intentionally getting as close to crossing over as they could get away with, without having the rights to.
