When Deadpool rocked contemporary media with its sass and its swear words, nerds all over were thrilled by the prospect of more of their favourite characters getting the same kind of treatment in future. It has long been the dream of comic readers to see the grim, gritty twists and turns from many of books come to life on the big screen.

Deadpool was a box office success and pleased fans and newcomers alike, mainly due to the brilliantly timed gags that pushed the envelope, even in an R-rated movie. Throw T.J. Miller into the mix and you had a recipie for some amazing comedy moments. If you thought you’d seen all of the jokes that Deadpool could muster up, you are very wrong!

99% of the time, when there is Ryan Reynolds or Deadpool related news, readers are in for at least a chuckle. Today, however, it is a bit different. Earlier this week, 13 year old Connor McGrath, a Deadpool fan who also happened to be the first person to see the film, passed away after a brave, fierce battle with cancer. Reynolds met the young man thanks to the always amazing Make-A-Wish Foundation. From the heartfelt tribute Reynolds posted to his Facebook page last night, it seems that meeting Connor was just as special to the star as it was to the young Canadian. (more…)
If you have ever attended San Diego Comic-Con, or know someone who has within the last ten years or so, you have likely heard plenty of Con stories that begin with “I remember when you could buy tickets at the door”, or “Movie studios ruined Comic-Con”, or, on the other side, “I am so glad I waited 37 hours in line just to be the first to see footage of…”, or, “Can you believe what [insert studio name] showed in Hall H??”. SDCC isn’t just a convention – it’s an event, and every year, the event seems to divide attendees as to what the best and worst parts of the convention really are. For many, standing or sleeping in that ridiculous Hall H line on the convention lawn, down the pier, or even over on Hall H Island (that one’s for those in the know) is all part of the experience, while for others, it is the hell they endure just to see what surprises a studio will bring. Today, a report out of The Wrap claims that fans will now have one less movie studio to worry about or get excited for, as the case may be, as 20th Century Fox may be bowing out of the convention, thanks to pesky pirates.

Yesterday marked the earlier than proposed release of Deadpool on digital download. Fans have been itching with anticipation to see the film again after its roaring success in theatres. The film captured the essence of Deadpool perfectly, with a mix of gratuitous violence and childish jokes And for those of you that didn’t enjoy Deadpool (the very few of you!) you’re in for a bit of a bumpy ride on the internet over the next few weeks, as Deadpool is released on Blu-Ray and DVD. Now, you may think that you could unfollow all Deadpool fans on Twitter, unsubscribe from those pesky movie news feeds and avoid any instagram profiles that are a little bit obsessed with the Merc With The Mouth but you might still struggle to avoid him.
