Sure its a Wednesday but that is as good a day as any to showcase a film that will be a limited run like “Once Upon A Deadpool” which opens today in select theaters for a limited time. I’ve talked about this before and if you missed the trailer posted HERE and that discussion, know that its the PG-13 version of “Deadpool 2”. Let’s check out the holiday themed poster along with some casting and the premise that was stolen from the Official YouTube.

About The Film:
To kick off the holiday season audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence.

“Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. “I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining…”

Opening: “Deadpool 2” in Theaters Everywhere (5/18/2018)

Hello my friends, it is once again time to make the chimichangas as the Merc with a Mouth, Wade Wilson who we all know and love as Deadpool, has returned for the sequel to his first film with “Deadpool 2”. Check out the awesome theatrical poster and a completely ridiculous and untrue premise for the film along with the casting.

Per The YouTube Video Page: After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

PiercingMetal Sees “Deadpool” @ Regal Union Square Stadium 14

I’m figuring that with the film having been released for over a week to the general masses that all of the absolute comic book film diehards have gotten to see “Deadpool”. I caught this a couple of days ago with my good friend Skeleton Pete and I wanted to offer up some quick insight about the film but nothing that is going to be a spoiler for anyone. At least I don’t think that there will be anything spoiled. We saw it over at the Regal Union Square Stadium on 13th Street which is a usual haunt for us to see the adventure films. While we went super early, there is NO matinee price to speak of at this theater. Here we go.

For starters, I should stress that “Deadpool” is NOT a part of the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe (referred to from now on as “MCU” for the sake of typing) and is instead considered among the “X-Men” film universe that is maintained by 20th Century Fox. Some people might not know who Deadpool even is or what this film entails so here is a repeat of the film premise that was culled from its Wikipedia page just before release.

Opening: “Deadpool” (2/12/2016)

Ever since his first appearance in “New Mutants” #98 back in 1991 he’s been the Merc with a Mouth and now it seems as though Deadpool is going to be known as the Merc with a Movie as the film in which he stars opens up today in theaters everywhere. Check out the poster, premise and cast below.

Poster - Deadpool - 2016

The Premise:
In an effort to cure his cancer, former special forces operative Wade Wilson was subjected to an experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, disfigured skin, an unstable mind and a “dark, twisted” sense of humor. Armed with new abilities and a new identity, Wilson hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. (thanks Wiki)

The Cast:
Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool
Morena Baccarin as Vanessa
Ed Skrein as Francis/Ajax
T. J. Miller as Weasel
Gina Carano as Angel Dust
Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead
Stefan Kapičić as Piotr Rasputin/Colossus
Leslie Uggams as Blind Al
Jed Rees as The Recruiter
Marvel Comics co-creator Stan Lee will have a cameo appearance as a strip club MC
Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld will also make a cameo appearance

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Even thought this film takes place outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since its connected to the X-Men franchise license that Fox currently holds, I am super excited for this one since it looks like the got him 100% correct. If you’ve seen the trailers you can tell that Deadpool is a complete and utter a$$hole in them when it comes to his adversaries and even his friends and that is pretty much how he is in the comics that he helps move off the shelves month after month. Speaking of Deadpool in comics, last month Marvel Comics celebrated the character by offering fans 10 different titles starring him for $1 apiece. You can peruse what they were in case you missed that post by clicking HERE but you might have to shop around a little bit for them since the releases ended in the last week of January. I’m debating on whether or not to see this on opening day or not because I have Toy Fair this coming weekend and that is going to keep me busy for a few days. What do you readers think? Will you be catching this film on the big screen or waiting for it to hit HBO or a Blu-ray disc release? Let me know in the comments section and oh before I completely close up on this posting, attention Parents “DO NOT BRING YOUR LITTLE ONES TO SEE DEADPOOL”!!!!. This film is rated “R” for a reason and the dialogue is not meant for the younger set. The last thing we need is people decrying it so much that we never see a sequel. That’s it, carry on with the rest of your day now.
