    When Deadpool comes out on blu-ray/DVD, they should have Ryan Reynolds do the commentary track in character. If that wouldn't be the ultimate wink/nod to the character then there isn't one.

Yes, there is some fiction in the movie, go figure, but all was well done. The only real nitpick I had was the jumpiness in the movie after Cube left the group. There is a bit of filling in the blanks, if you are not a rap fan or at least don't know about the players at the time (Suge/Heller storylines, etc).

      I will eventually buy the director's cut, that is for certain. Not only do I want to see the FULL version, but the extras sound awesome (live in DET concert, etc).
      It was really good. My only nit-pick is that the families had a piece of the movie so the portrayal of the last set of women was hagiographic, whereas in real life I'm sure they were exactly like the freight train of groupies who came before; they just happened to hit the jackpot.

      I love that the hotel where they shot the infamous "trade show orgy" was exactly the same set as the scene with the SEC rep in The Big Short.

      Also, the "Bye Felicia" nod was perfect.

          Which was reportedly improv'd.

            Yes!

            That would be akin to the Spinal Tap commentary track with the band in character.

            It's like a second Spinal Tap movie and freaking hilarious.

              Going to Deadpool tonight. I'm breaking my ban on all Marvel Films that aren't Marvel by doing so. It better be good.

                I have that disc at home but never thought to check the commentary track. That will change shortly.

                    So how is this a Marvel film not by Marvel? I thought they were going to doing all of theirs from now on. Some studio buy the rights to Deadpool a long time ago?

                          Deadpool falls under the X-Men license that Fox owns.

                              The Marvel movies made by Sony - Spider-Man and Fantastic 4 - will start to fall inline with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but won't actually be made by Marvel Studios. Instead Marvel Studios will consult with Sony for their stand alone movies, and Sony will allow their characters to show up in Marvel Studios made movies. Basically, Sony was failing at making gobs and gobs of money they way Disney's Marvel movies and 20th Century Fox's movies were, so they decided to make this character concession in hopes of drumming up more support for their franchises that they've continually hosed over - that's why we're about to see the second reboot of Spider-Man and Fantastic 4 was just subjected to the worst reboot ever.

                              The Marvel Comics movies made by 20th Century Fox are not part of the MCU. As Scooby said, these mainly the X-Men titles and their affiliated brands like Deadpool. Pretty much every single character that's ever been produced in a Marvel comic has been listed into the contracts as to whether or not Studio XYZ can mention them in a movie, and that also goes for evil organizations like Hydra that appear in various comics, and the same goes for specific props and settings.

                              Deadpool pushed the limits on these contracts in a few spots, making veiled references to things they were supposed to mention. The question coming will be whether or not they get sued by the other studios for crossing the line or if they were vague enough to sneak one by the goalie.

                                No one will sue because it is basically free advertising (havent seen the movie yet but have heard about the references) and will laughed out of court anyways. They all take jabs at each other it is half the fun. Hell Deadpool is just a ripoff of Deathstroke anyways and is often used as a jab. (just like Lobo was Keith Giffen riffing on Wolverine and trolling the ridiculous nature of the late 80s-mid 90s violence XTREME!!11!! comics)
