The Merc With A Mouth is all set for his much awaited film to hit the theaters next year. With almost three months of waiting time, the hype for the film is still going strong.
So, what can fans expect form the movie? What are some of the interesting facts that they should know about the film, the characters, and how the entire thing managed to come to life at all? Collider made a long and expansive list of the top 65 things a fan should know about the upcoming “Deadpool” filmsome are already known or at expected at the very least, while some are new to the ears and are interesting to know about.
Here are some highlights from the list:
- Deadpool will absolutely break the fourth wall in the film. Just like how he knows he is in a comic book in the comics, here he knows that he is in a movie, and will sometimes address the audience and talk to them while the other characters will have no idea what he is talking about.
- Cable was supposed to be in the film, but was reserved for a later time, possibly a sequel.
- Just like in any Marvel (Fox and those in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) film, Stan Lee will have a cameo in the film. Will Deadpool know him as Stan Lee?
- Since it has an R rating, the film will not depart too much from the graphic approach of the original comics when it comes to violence, blood, gore, sex, and language.
- Deadpool is part of the current X-Men movie universe. In fact, he will be seen making references to Blackbird and even Professor X. While he is expected now to show up at some point in future films, some of the X-Men and other mutants are also expected to appear, or at least be mentioned in the upcoming film.
- The Deadpool costume had the muscle layer removed since Ryan Reynolds himself is already ripped, and an additional layer of muscles would make him look bigger. Which means that all muscles that will be seen on Deadpool is “100% USDA Ryan Reynolds.”
- Colossus is 7 ft. 6 inches in the film, and the actor who plays him, Andre Tricoteux, is only 6 ft. 8 inches, so he wore 8 inches of heels on set.
- Music from the 80s and the 90s will be sued for the film.
- The movie is six years in the making, but was only pushed into production now that comic books movies have become a trendinstead of five years ago.
- Deadpool will be pansexual. Meaning to say, he will have a sexual preference towards—well, everyone.
“Deadpool” hits theaters on February 12, 2016.
