Morena Baccarin is hot. Glau looks like her face was pressed against the side of the test tube for too long, and has no tits/ass.

Liking Glau, who has the body of a boy, is more gay.

Well Sheeky Forums thinks capeshit doesn't need good actors and Glau is still kind of pretty to me at least, plus she'd be down for all the physical stuff required.

50 million budget, no idea if there was additional for marketing but boy did they use it to their full advantage

Nah, they're gonna keep Deadpool separate but equal. He would not fit in the core line X-Men films.

The film has broken numerous box office records and became the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time, the highest grossing X-Men film, and the third-highest grossing film of 2016.

Highest grossing X-Men film. Think about that. More than the main series. More than the Wolverine spin-offs.

This was just a modest budget super hero film that they think would just make a minor profit and be forgotten about.

They spam shit on facebook and twitter. It does not cost much.
Also this.
R-rated
smaller release
one reddit-tier character

Ryan Reynolds looking at a massive paycheck.

He was born for the role and the movie was enjoyable.

@Spazyfool

Not bad. That's some Blair Witch and Paranormal Activity profit.

come on now... Fox even cut the budget of the movie during production because they had no faith in it

Any source on that though? From what they say FOX treated this movie's creation like a red headed stepchild, where would they have gotten an additional 250 million?

It's not WB and BvsDoJ. Deadpol did not have marketing budget four of five times larger that budget for making fucking movie.

@Gigastrength

yeah that sounds feasible, first Fox cuts the budget of the movie by about 10 million, making them have to rewrite one of the action scenes, then they give them 5 times the budget of the movie for marketing

you should work at WB

@Gigastrength
Spending three times the budget on marketing isn't really that crazy. It's pretty common nowadays. But I'd say the marketing budget was closer to around 100 mil.

Marketing is why a movie like BvS is seen as a financial disappointment. Totaled up they probably spent at least 5-6 hundred million with budget and marketing. The profit margin on Deadpool is way better.

The marketing was the only good part of this movie.

Why does Sheeky Forums hate Deadpool?
hardmode: don't say reddit

I didn't think it was hilarious, but it was really refreshing to have a small scale, self aware capeshit movie that embraced the schlock

Action wasn't too bad either

@TurtleCat
It's style of humor was very juvenile. Action not being "too bad" doesn't mean anything when cape flicks are printed out every quarter that all have similar mindless action scenes.

capeshit is juvenile, if you don't like it why watch it?

don't except Schindler's List when you go see capeshit

It wasn't self aware

The movie is good for the first twenty minutes then it becomes average capeshit with quips.

hopefully the sequel takes more chances. They played it way to safe in this one but now they know it will make money they can truly make a capeshit parody film

No more than things like Family Guy or Always Sunny. Like I said, it was refreshing to have a capeshit character that isn't a PG-13 good guy who never swears. He's a degenerate man child with a 12 year old's sense of humor and that's why I like it

Action not being "too bad" doesn't mean anything when cape flicks are printed out every quarter that all have similar mindless action scenes.
It was better than those mindless action scene CGI fuckfests. Most of it (excluding the bridge) was simple beating people up, no explosions every two seconds.

What should they have done differently exactly to be more self-aware?

Sheeky Forums isn't one person, I didn't hate it. I'm not going to go buy a Deadpool t-shirt or anything but it was an enjoyable night out at the theater watching an action comedy capeshit movie.

It's very much 'heh' the movie. You watch it...chuckle a few times...then go home. There's nothing hateable about it.

@PackManBrainlure
I think it vibes with the Family Guy audience, yes.
My point was is that it isn't too dissimilar from most comedies this age, so not that "childish" compared to it's contemporaries.

Also when did everyone stop liking childish, vulgar humor? If it's funny it's funny, I don't think comedy NEEDS to be about higher adult concepts.

@Nude_Bikergirl
Pretty much my consensus on the humor of it.
I really don't understand the vehement anger towards it, when it's basically the same thing as whatever is on Adult Swim or Comedy Central.

@ZeroReborn
Airplane! is probably my favorite comedy, and it has a pair of huge bouncing tits as a gag and a sex doll blow job.

I don't understand how people could not find that shit funny.
