A fast-talking mercenary with a morbid sense of humor is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers and a quest for revenge.
The frozen time opening sequence was inspired by Philips Carousel ad from 2009. Ryan Reynolds was impressed with the short and director Adam Berg became the front-runner to direct Deadpool before Tim miller was eventually hired in 2011.
Kinda lonesome back here.
Deadpool: Yeah, little help.
Ajax (Francis) sole superpower is stated to be an inability to perceive pain. However, he is shown having a healing ability far above human normal, a measure of superhuman strength and a degree of invulnerability that allows him to survive not only a high speed motorcycle crash and the destruction of the lab where Deadpool was created, but also the collapse of the Heli-carrier near the film's end. His abilities would have made him more than a match for Deadpool, whose healing factor is his only superhuman ability. Yet Francis loses two of the three encounters he has with him.
The main credits, including the title, aren't revealed until the end of the movie.
