I'm going to be honest with you guys - I'm not a huge fan of superhero movies, or an expert when it comes to comics, but Deadpool has caught my attention, and here's why:
1). It's hilarious
The trailer alone is filled with hilarious jokes - so imagine how side-splitting the movie will be. It's evident from the beginning that our main character is going to be very entertaining, and the movie doesn't take itself too seriously. Deadpool has been spot on with its humour - the timing is perfect, yet it's unpredictability makes Wade's twisted sense of humour even more hilarious to watch. Just thirty seconds into the Deadpool trailer and already I like this guy.
2). Ryan Reynolds stars
I think this is great casting. I wonder if Wade Wilson would be as funny if the character was played by a different actor? It seems that this movie won't disappoint us because it looks like there's even a great cast. Who's performance are you excited to see in Deadpool?
3). "This is a different kind of superhero movie"
This has captured my attention. The main character is unconventional and sarcastic, and doesn't strike me as mysterious or dark like other superheroes - take Batman for instance. His back story and motivation to find the man who ruined his life and is after his girl makes him human, and even likeable. Already I'm rooting for him.
4). Great stunts and special effects
Although this movie isn't like other superhero movies, it hasn't let us down when it comes to the awesome action scenes and the special effects. Because I have such high hopes after being so impressed by the trailer, I would hate to see something that's a basic requirement for a superhero movie to be flawed.
5). Badass women
This movie isn't just about the men - looks like we have some pretty mean women that show us they can be as tough as the guys! I love when Wade's girlfriend says "I've played a lot of roles, damsel in distress ain't one of them" - you go girl! She's still fighting after everything she's been through - I hope Wade can save her because I can't cope if this movie is emotional too!
