Who is Deadpool?
Deadpool is Marvel Comics’ most popular antihero, known for his accelerated healing abilities due to the experimentation by Weapon X (the same program that created Wolverine), and for having a twisted sense of humor.
However, he also has an unstable mind, which leads him into battles with other superheroes like himself (Spiderman, Wolverine, etc.)
Sometimes his actions are against other heroes because he feels they are threats to society; other times it’s just because he wants to fight them.
He’s shown to be funny but also dead serious when fighting opponents who are not jokesters themselves.
20 Interesting Facts about Deadpool
1. His real name is Wade Wilson, but upon being given his superhero alias by Nick Fury, he decided to use his real name as a way of mocking the people who denied him the chance to have an actual identity.
2. His creator is Rob Liefeld, and Deadpool was meant for a comic called “The New Mutants.” He was left out because there were too many characters in the book already. So Rob created a Deadpool character that didn’t have any powers at all just so he could slip into the book without causing trouble by adding more characters.
3. In order to get Ryan Reynolds to play Deadpool, 20th Century Fox had always wanted him to star in their adaptation of the Marvel character since 2009 when they first got access to his film rights from Columbia Pictures (who released the Spiderman films). They even offered Reynolds a contract that guaranteed him a spinoff film in the X-Men series in addition to his own standalone Deadpool solo film.
4. In 2009, Ryan Reynold’s agent went to Fox and stated that they should sue him because he had been trying to get them to make a Deadpool film for years but they hadn’t listened until then. Of course, Fox didn’t sue him because it would have probably been counter-productive since Ryan Reynolds was pretty adamant about playing Deadpool after being denied for so long by the studio. Instead, they were happy when their gamble paid off and they got a major movie star like Ryan Reynolds attached to one of their comic book films.
5. Before releasing the first test footage trailer of Deadpool, the studio did not tell anyone that it was actually Ryan Reynolds in the suit. All they said was that Deadpool would be played by a new actor so people wouldn’t know who to expect when viewing the trailer, but everyone already had their money on Ryan Reynolds since he had campaigned so hard for the part.
6. On Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Deadpool made his first TV appearance in the season 2 episode “The Dirty Half Dozen” by way of an animated pizza portrait.
7. Deadpool was originally supposed to be killed at the end of his film, but test audiences were so impressed that Fox changed it up and had him live instead; they even went back into the film and added dialogue hinting that he is still alive (he gets shot about 10 times during the course of action).
8. Deadpool’s real name is Wade Wilson; he got the name Deadpool because upon finding out he had cancer, he promised himself that if he made it out of there alive then he would become a superhero (hence why his super-suit has a picture of a winking skull for a logo).
9. Deadpool was the first superhero to break character and have a conversation with the audience as if they were aware they were in a movie (during his fight with Colossus, he stops to tell the audience that this is why he never fights steel-skinned opponents).
10. There are over 700 different Deadpool comics published by Marvel; about 200 of those issues contain multiple story arcs for Deadpool, with most involving him having conversations (or arguments) with himself (he’s driven crazy by all of his voices in his head and usually goes insane during these storylines).
11. The entire budget for Deadpool was $58 million – but it made almost $800 million at the box office, which means it recouped its costs very quickly (thus making the movie a big win for 20th Century Fox/Marvel).
12. Deadpool was nominated for a Golden Globe in 2016, but the Hollywood Foreign Press had to create a new category just so they could nominate him – “Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical” aka the “Wisecracking Deadpool Performance.”
