Previous NRL 2016

There's no stopping the Golden Girls fanatic who loves George Michael's 'Careless Whisper'. Deadpool is kiling it at the boxoffice and here's some strange facts from the film you may not have known.

A three-minute test reel was shot in January 2012 in an attempt to convince the heads of the studio to move forward with the movie. On August 1, 2014, the footage was released to the public, and based on the overwhelmingly positive response from fans, the film finally began production. The footage was so popular that part of it was recreated for the actual film.
In the original comic books, Deadpool garnered his healing factor from an experiment involving a sample of Wolverine's blood. This allowed him to survive further experimentation, but cannot heal any prior scarring, nor the cancer afflicting him. (It progresses as fast as he can heal)
Ryan Reynolds has said that Deadpool will be the last comic book character he will ever portray. However, he is open to Deadpool sequels and/or cameos.
Ryan Reynolds was allowed to keep his Deadpool costume. (He didn't ask, nor did he give anyone the chance to take it from him.)
On April Fool's Day 2015, Ryan Reynolds posted on Twitter that the film would be rated PG-13, which prompted fan backlash as the Deadpool character often swears and commits acts of graphic violence. Later that day, Reynolds confirmed that it was a prank and the film would be R rated.
In the trailer and in the film, Wade Wilson requests, "Don't make the super suit green--or animated!" This is a reference to Ryan Reynolds' previous role as the DC superheroGreen Lantern (2011) in which, as stated, the green suit was a special effect rather than an actual costume for Reynolds to put on. This is also a crude reference to that film's director, Martin Campbell, who he did not get along with.
The Deadpool costume had a muscle layer underneath that had to be removed becauseRyan Reynolds was so muscular, the costume was not only too tight for him, but it made him look overlarge.
Ryan Reynolds was involved with revising the script with the writers. Cast members were allowed to improvise in some scenes.
The film was released in February 2016, exactly 25 years after Deadpool's first appearance in New Mutants #98.
After being captured by Colossus on the bridge, Deadpool is told he's being taken to the professor in reference to the leader of the X-Men, Charles "Professor X" Xavier. Deadpool responds: "Which one, McAvoy or Stewart?" as in James McAvoy & Patrick Stewart, both of whom have portrayed Professor X in previous X-Men movies, including simultaneously in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
Ryan Reynolds describes Deadpool's "breaking the fourth wall" ability as a reflection of current times: "I think Deadpool's coming along at the right time, because it's speaking to that generation that has seen all these comic-book films and enjoyed them all; it's speaking to them as though the guy in that red suit is one of them. It's like watching a DVD commentary by someone who's got some pop-culture savvy and is kind of funny and a little obnoxious and is saying the things that you wouldn't say."
In the scenes where he is dealing with the stalker pizza delivery guy, Wade is wearing a T-shirt with a portrait of Bea Arthur on the front. This is a reference to the fact that in the comics, Deadpool has an affection for Bea Arthur and the Golden Girls TV show.
First R-rated movie to open above $100 million at the U.S. box office.
Early in the film Deadpool has an altercation with a pizza delivery guy. The pizza boxes he's delivering are marked 'Feige's Favourites', a nod to Kevin Feige, Marvel President.
On Halloween, Ryan Reynolds went as Deadpool and the footage can be seen on YouTube.
Wade Wilson was named as an homage/parody to Slade Wilson, aka the mercenary Deathstroke from DC Comics.
China refused to grant a certificate so the film could be shown there. While China's film import market is best known for supporting or blocking films based on how they present Chinese characters and stories (where applicable), that wasn't a factor with "Deadpool"; China also often censors out extreme violence, profanity and sex from movies before release, and this film contains a large amount of all three. While the Chinese censors did consider such an edit here, they ultimately decided that the cuts needed to make "Deadpool" into a general audience picture would make it incomprehensible, and thus decided not to have the film in Chinese theaters at all.
In the opening title sequence, a wallet can be seen floating through the air & as it does a photo comes out of Ryan Reynolds in his Green Lantern costume.
Negasonic Teenage Warhead was named after a song by the rock band Monster Magnet.
Although not referenced by name, the final battle takes place on a wrecked SHIELD helicarrier.
This is Ryan Reynolds's fifth time in a comic book movie. He was previously Marvel's Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity (2004), Wade Wilson in X-Men Origins: Wolverine(2009), Hal Jordan in DC's Green Lantern (2011) and Nick Walker in Dark Horse'sR.I.P.D. (2013).
In the comics, Negasonic Teenage Warhead is actually a telepath and precognitive mutant. Her abilities were changed for the film due to the fact that the writers felt that by having explosive powers it'd fit more with her name.
This film had a lower budget than any of the X-Men, Iron Man, Avengers, or Captain America movies.
The Starbucks cup seen at the beginning of the film had "Rob L" written on it, this is also another nod to Rob Liefeld.
"The city that rhymes with fun" comment during the freeway scene is a reference to Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones, who during a concert in front of 40,000 fans called Regina, Saskatchewan the "city that rhymes with fun".
That's some of it. Enjoy more at imdb.com
I give Deadpool 3 out of 5.
