...and also why it will be so totally, amazingly, blindingly brilliant and awesome.

Greetings avid reader! Welcome to my article on the Deadpool movie. I will be your guide. I have chosen to show my wisdom to the masses and explain why I believe the Deadpool movie - out February 12th next year - will be amazingly amazing. Here we go:

  • Reason Number 1: DEADPOOL.

[Deadpool](movie:38663). DeAdPoOl.deadpool. Famed for being immortal, immoral, wise-cracking and absolutely bloody hilarious, the Merc-with-a-Mouth has been tickling our funny bits (heh) since he first appeared in comics in 1991. Since then, he has had his own comic, and has appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, portrayed by Ryan Reynolds, and has had his own video game.

Many claim he is just a (excuse my language) piss-take of Deathstroke from DC comics (which he obviously is). He is an assassin and a mercenary, but he has been allied with X-Men, and is/was a member of the X-Force - which is another movie FOX may or may not be planning. Not sure about that one.

He also loves Chimichangas. And pancakes.

So do I, Wade. So do I.
So do I, Wade. So do I.

  • Reason Number 2: Cast

Ryan Reynolds - who also portrayed Wade Wilson in the X-Men origins movie - is coming back to play him. He was pretty good as him, nailing the humour and the character, wielding those katanas like a boss and taking out a roomful of people.

Great scene.
Great scene.

The only thing that did not happen - and will happen - is his breaking the fourth wall - that is, speaking to the actual audience, which is just brilliant. Reynolds nails the role.

The other announced cast members are Morena Baccarin, who apparently “grapples with falling for a man with a hideously scarred face.”, obviously the Pool of Death himself. T.J Miller (he was in the last Transformers film), is apparently (no confirmation) cast as Weasel, who is his sidekick and arms dealer. Finally, we also have Gina Carano (Fast & Furious - never quite got into those movies, sorry...) who has been cast as Angel Dust, who has the ability to increase her adrenaline, granting her super strength. Awesome.

Collossus is also scheduled to play a significant part in this movie. HOWEVER, sadly he is being recast, as Daniel Cudmore will not be reprising his role. What a downer, right? Damn.

  • Reason Number 3: Test Footage

As I'm sure most of you know (and some of you might not - you do now), test footage done with Ryan Reynolds was leaked a few years ago, and it is just epic. The humour, the insane-ness, the epicness, the Deadpoolity of it is great. Here it is:

Pretty Epic, right? Sheer epicness. I should probably stop gushing about it, but nah, fuck it. It's gonna be brilliant. The only thing that might ruin it is if it's less than R-rated. I mean, sure Deadpool is funny and all, but he is insane, which could lead to some pretty disturbing stuff. Another bad thing is we still have a year to wait. Damn.

Anyway, that pretty much ends my article. I'm gonna put a poll in at the end, because that's what seems to be the popular and cool thing to put at the end nowadays. Hit me up on Twitter if you have any nice, wonderful things to say, or some constructive critisism -----> @EvanBarrell (or you can just comment - probably better).

Peace out.


Are you excited for Deadpool (2016)?
