Am I an old man? Seriously, have I reached the ancient curmudgeon phase of my life? Because I just can’t muster any enthusiasm at all for Deadpool. I’ll concede that Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson (pre-mouth-stitching) was the best part of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but that’s hardly difficult considering the overall quality of that trash heap of a film. But there’s really nothing about Deadpool that I find appealing in any of his incarnations. Wow, he’s an insane vigilante pervert who breaks the fourth wall. I’m sure I would have found this all too awesome when I was about 13, but just spouting poop and masturbation jokes into the camera isn’t clever. Anybody can do it. Watch.
Uh oh! When I wrote that last sentence, I pooped a little in my pants out of excitement. Good thing that’s my fetish!
See? Now I ask you: is that humour? Or is that just stupid? Anyway, for all that I don’t care for Deadpool, there are a lot of people out there who are really into this. If you fit into that group, please explain the appeal to me in the comments.
Deadpool comes out February 12, 2016.
