Now, while most superhero movies have long been considered ideal fodder for being unwrapped on #Christmas morning, or used as stocking-filler, there's only one hero who would most definitely turn either such idea into a horrifyingly graphic stream of complex innuendo and sexual punnery: Wade "#Deadpool" Wilson. Heck, he'd likely throw in a gag or two about coming down a chimney, too, and there'd almost certainly be some sort of lewd implication regarding reindeer.
That sexually-charged irreverence, though, is a large part of why so many people fell for the #RyanReynolds-played antihero in the first place, though, with both his comic book and on-screen characterizations being pointedly...nonconformist, to the point of borderline insanity.

Deadpool Is Getting A Fancy Schmancy Christmas Blu-Ray Release
One that, as it turns out, is set to be filled close to bursting with (non-festively-themed) extras and mercenary-related joy, including Blu-ray, DVD and digital versions of the film, as well as...
- Multiple deleted/extended scenes with (optional) audio commentary from director #TimMiller
- A gag reel
- A featurette called "From Comics to Screen...to Screen"
- A gallery, featuring concept art, costumes, storyboards, pre-vis and stunt-vis)
- "Deadpool’s Fun Sack"
- Audio commentary by Ryan Reynolds and screenwriters Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick
- Audio commentary by director Tim Miller and Deadpool co-creator/comics artist Rob Liefeld
All of which is, of course, great and all — especially for #Fox's sales division — except for the fact that the new "Christmas" edition contains pretty much the exact same content that appeared on Deadpool's previous Blu-ray release earlier this year.
In other words, if you've already bought a fancy-schmancy copy of Deadpool on Blu-ray, you might not also need this one. Unless, of course, you want to buy everyone you know a copy, including your elderly grandparents. Especially your elderly grandparents, in fact.
Either way, the shiny new Blu-ray edition of Deadpool is available now from wherever hilariously violent superhero action comedies are sold, and seems to come with a Christmas-themed cover. Which is nice.
In the meantime, what do you think? Do we need a Christmas-themed Deadpool DVD, or were you holding out for the Kwanzaa edition? Let us know below!
