Put on your adult diapers and whip up some chimichangas, because Deadpool's is here. The Deadpool movie finally brought the beloved, fourth wall-breaking antihero to the big screen in all his glory. Ryan Reynolds spent years trying to make it happen, and now Deadpool is a real movie. Specifically, it's an R-rated superhero movie like none other.
Don't worry. Just because Reynolds is back in the role doesn't mean he's playing the same version he played in the past. Fox has learned from their mistakes and there's no "Barakapool" they tried to pass off as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.The film was a massive success and a sequel (or two) is confirmed! If you haven't seen the movie yet, here are the top reasons why you should see the Deadpool movie right now.

The Test Footage Is the Bomb
When proof-of-concept test footage leaked one night, the Internet immediately went crazy. The footage is actually based on a sequence from the screenplay, so if the film is captures just a fraction of the footage's craziness, it'll be a blast unlike any other superhero movie. It captures the anarchic essence of the character perfectly, while also suggesting that director Tim Miller won't skimp on over-the-top action.
Fans are finally going to get one of the most popular antiheroes in comic book history on film! After hearing all the it's happening/it's not happening rumors over the years, it's tough to believe that this post-modern play on superheroics has finally become a movie.
Get ready for some laughs and violence compacted into a two-hour flick. What's best about Deadpool is that he breaks the fourth-wall and he knows he's a comic book character. We'll probably see him calling people out in the movie audience, poking fun at the abysmal X-Men Origins: Wolverine film, and even mocking Green Lantern, the DC hero Ryan Reynolds took a cinematic swing at a few years back.
20th Century Fox only has the film rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four characters... but that's A LOT of characters from the Marvel Universe. More than enough to fill out a shared universe with abundant guest appearances and supporting roles from familiar figures. X-Men heavy hitter Colossus definitely shows up in Deadpool, as does Negasonic Teenage Warhead, an X-Force mutant who's been in the Hellfire Club.And there have been persistent (but still unconfirmed) rumors that Hugh Jackman might make a brief cameo appearance as Wolverine, the lynchpin of the cinematic X-universe.
