Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
Jack Kesy's role as Black Tom Cassidy was reduced from being the main antagonist, who would have acted as a "devil on Firefist's shoulder", when the writers felt there were too many antagonists and they would rather spend the money needed to portray his abilities on a character such as Juggernaut.
Fuck Wolverine. First he rides my coattails with the R-rating, and then, that hairy motherfucker ups the ante by dying. What a dick. Well, guess what, Wolvie? I'm dying in this one, too.
At the beginning of the film, Deadpool says he was on top of 2,000 gallons of gasoline. In fact, he laid on seven 55 gallon drums for a total of only 385 gallons, and several of the drums were labeled as kerosene. However Deadpool tends to exaggerate his statements and was just being dramatic.
When Deadpool and X-Force execute a freefall jump from a CH-47 Chinook helicopter to rescue Firefist, AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" is playing in the background; according to David Blakely - an ex-British Army Captain and former member of the elite Pathfinder Platoon of 16th Air Assault Brigade - the same song is also played when the Pathfinders carry out any jumps
On December 12, 2018, Fox released a re-cut version of the film under the title "Once Upon a Deadpool." In an homage to The Princess Bride (1987), the film features Deadpool telling the story to Fred Savage (playing himself). This version toned down the film's violence and cut or bleeped out much of the profanity in order to receive a PG-13 rating in the U.S. instead of the original R rating, but also added some material omitted from the original theatrical release which was included in the 'Super Duper Cut'.
