February 19, 2021 - A Look Back: Deadpool 5th Anniversary

It's only been five years, but Tim Miller's live-action adaptation of Deadpool made such an impact on us that we had to take the opportunity to talk about it. Based on the popular Marvel comic by Rob Liefield and Fabian Nicieza, Deadpool centers on Wade Wilson, a freelance mercenary who unwittingly submits to a horrific experiment that unlocks his mutant X gene. The process endows him with remarkable healing abilities, but also horribly disfigures him. Assumed dead, Wade re-emerges as Deadpool. His only mission- find the man who did this to him, and get him to reverse the process...or kill him. Starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, TJ Miller, and Leslie Uggams, Deadpool stands out, not only as a great comic-book movie, but also as a solid action-comedy and one of the best projects to come out the Fox X-Men Universe.If you like what you hear, be sure to follow us!
