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 Adam Berg's short film Carousel (2009), which was two minutes of an event frozen in time. Ryan Reynolds was impressed with the short and Berg was briefly a front-runner to direct Deadpool.
Kinda lonesome back here.
Deadpool: Yeah, little help.
When Deadpool is about to undergo the stress-inducing experiments, he is ungagged and the gag put on his chest. It disappears, then reappears as the scene progresses.
The main credits, including the title, aren't revealed until the end of the movie.
The theatrical and DVD releases were censored by the CBFC in India to secure an A rating (restricted to adults i.e. 18+):
