1. Golden locks of hair cut off
2. Mouth sewn shut
3. Blades jammed into his arms
4. Oh yeah, his head lopped off
I guess people should be excited. Deadpool's character was one of the best parts of the film, so his spin-off has potential. Ryan Reynolds is a pretty funny dude, hell "Van Wilder" is hilarious, at least, it was hilarious when I was in High School, 5 years ago. On a deeply meta level, the character of Deadpool is one of the only characters who breaks the "fourth wall." For all you narrative rookies out there, it means that the character talks directly to the audience. Think of "Malcom in the Middle" or "Ferris Bueller" except instead of being cute teenagers lamenting American adolescence, Deadpool would just be a solo assassin killing people. How American?
