I thought this a fitting first post. I used to believe that Gambit was my favorite superhero with his suave french influences and mysterious air. That was, until I discovered the brilliance that is Deadpool. One of my favorite superheroes (?) over the last few years.
I loved how they worked in the references to all the previous comic book characters that Ryan Reynolds has played. He has a number, such as, Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, Hannibal King in the Blade series, and of course the first and terrible rendition of Wade Wilson/Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. How can you take the mouth away from “the merc with a mouth” and still call it the same character?
A couple of my favorite lines would have to be, “Whose kitty litter did I just shit in?” and “After a brief adjustment period, and a couple of drinks, it’s a face… I could sit on.”
The movie was almost everything I had hoped for. They could have pushed the envelope a bit more, had Morena Baccarin show a bit more skin, or better yet Ryan Reynolds, haha. But I understand the need to appeal to the masses. I hope he gets to have many more appearances.
