TL;DR: It is possible, but not very easy to pull off. Real life examples: One bullet, two deer killed: A few years ago, a 10 year old boy on his first hunting trip killed two deer with one round. One bullet, two men killed: In 2009, a British sniper in Afghanistan killed two suspected insurgents who were fleeing on a motorcycle; the bullet passed ...

Its the same as his comics counterpart: After the healing factor was given to him, it made his normal cells as well as his cancerous cells unable to die, giving him a heavily scarred appearance beneath his suit. - Wikipedia So these cancerous cells made his weird appearance and his healing factor assumed it was part of himself and keep it in the same ...

Its Hugh Jackman, the actor who plays Wolverine in the "mainstream" x-men movie series. Its one of many fourth-wall-breaking Hugh Jackman / Wolverine jokes in the movie.

Yes, but no. It's feasible. But not likely. Consider it only shattered two skulls and deflected off the third. In fact, this bit seems to mirror a Mythbusters segment: A bullet from a .50 caliber Desert Eagle pistol cannot penetrate 25 watermelons. Tory and Kari set up a line of melons, but Kari's shot only penetrated the first three. They noted ...

Deadpool is not cured of his cancer. When he gets his healing factor, so does his cancer, becoming super cancer. His healing factor fights it at an accelerated rate, but neither wins. Hence his face. And anti-telepathic brain. And insanity. The cancer is just mutations in normal cells. Wade is genetically predisposed to it, so the healing factor can't stop ...

Probably because Gina Carano asked them to. I couldn't find any statements from her one way or the other (I doubt anyone is brave enough to ask her to her face), but it's probably the same reason that any other actress does or doesn't get naked in a movie. Actresses in movies that have to do sex scenes agree to do so upfront, and typically require ...

While we do not know exactly HOW does the eyes of the Spider-man suit in Civil War move according to Peter Parker's own eyes, we definitely know WHY. When Tony Stark goes recruiting the young Peter Parker, he notices Peter's self made costume, with ridiculous goggles. Peter specifically says that he cannot focus on his vision correctly without the goggles, ...

Background Information: At first, Deadpool was just a generic mercenary bad guy, during the XTREME era of comics, the 90s. The name was a typical extreme villain name. It was also a barely hidden play on the DC character Deathstroke, Slade Wilson, who Deadpool was basically a copy of at first. Then after his popularity went up, and Deadpool became a ...

Terminal Ballistics as Viewed in a Morgue –gunthorp But then, I've seen most everything. I've seen a guy killed by a .416 Rigby, as well as a suicide to the head with a .44 Mag that didn't penetrate the skull on the other side. The long and short of it is that you just don't know how ANY bullet will react to tissue and bone until you open them up and ...

The answer was actually provided in the scene. Essentially, his cancer is growing rapidly, but his healing ability prevents it from growing out of control. It's in a state of balance, if you will, between the cancer growing and his healing fixing it.

To me, "maximum effort" was a powerful motif that tells the audience more about the psyche of Deadpool -- a man who allows his life to oscillate, too predictably, between moments of extreme danger and safety. Deadpool, who is, for reasons unknown to the ignorant, non-comic-book-reading masses, too messed up to try hard everyday and improve his life, is ...

Deadpool exists in the DOFP New Timeline, post Apocalypse. Modern Day, so 2016ish, putting it closer to the The Wolverine post-credit scene, where Xavier and Magneto show up to recruit Logan in the old Timeline. It is, baring any future time travel schenanigans *Note 1, about 8 years prior to the "good ending" that Logan wakes up to after the events of DOFP. ...

I can point out a lot of reasons. But most of them are about the main character himself: Deadpool. The most obvious reason is "Humour". Deadpool can be a pretty complex character, but one thing that is certain about him is humour, which contributed greatly to his movie becoming a people's fave. He's not only making fictional humour, as in, humour that only ...

From businessofcinema.com, seven scenes that were cut by the censorboard of India are: All the cuss words have been muted. Also, some sexual euphemisms have been muted. The triple headshot (with a deagle) scene has been zoomed to show only Deadpool. Because it shows violence. All the nude and love-making scenes have been deleted and some have been ...

Different countries have different boards who classify movies and assign ratings, often with different criteria for determining which rating it should receive and sometimes requiring scenes to be cut or otherwise modified to allow the film to receive a rating at all. See, for example, this question about the cuts made to Deadpool to make it suitable for ...

After X-Men: Days of Future Past and all that time travelling weirdness happens inside it, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X3 are considered non canon. Below is the producer's interview So the actual origin of Deadpool is what we have seen in the Deadpool film. He no longer met Stryker and his mouth wasn't sewed shut. And ...

Watching the two Deadpool movies, it's never made clear where they take place. It's never stated and the city is not named. The locations we do see are entirely fictional (although filmed in Vancouver). Where streets are named they seem to be named after comic book characters, writer, illustrators or producers. Source Don't feel bad if you've never ...

Deadpool uses ninja swords, katanas, because he uses katanas in the comics. It's adaptation tautology. He has had katanas since his first introduction in 1991. He actually mastered kenjutsu and how to use katanas the normal way. He was even a sumo wrestler for a while (not in a joke manner). In the movie universe, it's because they look cool. Wade is all ...

In the movie the three men were caught by surprise and in a perfect lineup. At less than 10 feet, with that weapon, I would say it is very possible. Having said that, Deadpool only killed 2 men with that shot. The third man was hit, but the bullet didn't penetrate his skull.

To give a faceless character a face with emotions and reactions to what is going on around them. People need to connect with a character and it is hard to do so when they have no expression. It feels odd to the audience so they add the expressive eyes and the audience once again connects with the character.

From my research for the Can a single bullet from a handgun kill three people in the way Deadpool did? question, he seems to have not fully loaded his weapon. From IMFDB: Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) can be seen dual-wielding IWI Desert Eagle Mark XIX pistols as his primary firearms, using them to great effect. His Desert Eagles are current-production Mark ...

Ways Deadpool's face has been fixed: Cursed to look like Thom Cruz by Loki. He eventually fought to be uncursed. His Healing factor was messed with by Weapon X again. This did not end well. He ended up a puddle when he didn't do what they wanted. Removed the super-cancer and healing factor at the same time. Also did not end well. Technically died. ...

From the green band trailer, Deadpool certainly seems to be self aware as a character in a film and does break the fourth wall. In one of the fight scenes he looks directly into camera and says "Cue the music." at around 1:28. This bit is omitted from the red band trailer (NSFW), which is what most people seem to be watching. ...

Didn't really gave too much attention to the phrase when watching the movie. I found out a song while searching for an explanation: Maximum Effort (Deadpool OST) - Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL. Don't really think it's any connection between them though. Also in this article it is mentioned that There’s some vague motivational thinking going on, or at ...

The assumption is that Colossus, the big boy scout he is, would be doing the same thing for Angel Dust, an evil mutant, as he had planned for Deadpool and Francis at the beginning, er middle of the movie. He would take them to have a talk with Xavier, who would then decide on a course of action. It's also possible that Colossus let her escape by being ...

Actresses not being comfortable with nude scenes is one way to see it. But, in the scene, one has to notice that Colossus shies away when Angel's breast was exposed. Colossus has a dad-like mentality of viewing things, and is more towards the conservative side of things. Colossus covers his face when the breast was exposed. And the director did a great ...

Yes, Deadpool is just excited about the shot he made with the fifth from last bullet. It's just typical Deadpool randomness. In the original leaked script, Deadpool celebrated bullet 7 in Spanish instead: DEADPOOL: Siete. Deadpool FIRES AT THE MIRROR. In SLO-MO, the bullet STRIKES the mirror at an OBLIQUE ANGLE and RICOCHETS perfectly INTO the thug who ...

In the X-Force "Messiah War" story arc (specifically X-Force/Cable: Messiah War #1, May '09.) Deadpool appears 1000 years in the future, still alive. Although we never see what he looks like underneath his mask, he doesn't appear to have aged. ..although this is specifically the comic and not the movie.

From this Deadpool employs any number of weapons depending on his current assignment. Most often, Deadpool uses guns, grenades, sais, knives, and katanas. Wade can use any weapon known to man and learn how to use the weapon in less than 5 minutes. and from this Although Wilson also uses guns from time to time, he seems to prefer taking out his swords ...
