Saw the movie tonight, awesome stuff. Although I liked the X-Men movies I think this was probably the best one out of the X-Men movies. It was high class acting or anything, but a solid summer action flick with some drama and comedy sprinkled in. I enjoyed Victor a lot in this movie, hope to see more of him in the future movies.

Although I love the Deadpool comics, I didn't mind what they did with the character, and I'm sure the spinoff will do the character more justice.

X2 wants to bitch slap you for that.

Could be worse I could have said that Blade 3, Spiderman 3, and X3 were the best movies of their respective franchise. I'd be lying out of my ass though if I said they were.

Marvel.com confirm Deadpool movie:

Did YOU stay for the credits of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine?"

We certainly hope so because there are two different Easter Eggs to look out for after the credits run and they kick off two sequels!

*****SPOILER ALERT******
Be warned: if you haven't seen "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" yet, the next few paragraphs will reveal plot points you may want to see for yourself!
************************

One Easter Egg involves Wolverine sitting at a bar in Japan and delves into that backstory.

The other is about Deadpool. Yes, Deadpool!

The newly confirmed Deadpool film, which would be produced by Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel, has Ryan Reynolds slated to star and would be a complete exploration of the character - his origins, his emergence as the Merc with the Mouth, and more!

We sure can't wait, how about you?

The after the credits thing was really lame. I felt like such a loser for staying after the credits to see that

See, THAT's Deadpool. 

THIS is NOT Deadpool:

There's a wee bit of a difference.

The R5 of Wolverine has hit the web.  For those out of the loop, R5s are pretty much DVD rips but have mono audio.

You know, looking back at the film, I don't know what the hell went RIGHT other than Liev and Ryan Reynolds five minutes of screen time. It's the perfect movie to MST and that is HORRIBLE considering this is the guy they were putting the X-men franchise on the shoulders of.

It's poorly edited, poorly directed, REALLY poorly written and even the special effects at times are complete garbage. What the hell happened to this movie? I haven't been this disappointed and still with a bad taste since Episode 1 was released.

I don't see what all the negativity is about.  I  finally saw it and enjoyed it, with the exception of the obviously fake CGI claws and them making Deadpool into Weapon XI.  For my own sanity's sake, I'm pretending like it was a clone of Wade that Wolverine fought at the end.

I enjoyed the hell out of this movie.  I'll admit, Wolverine's claws looked REALLY fake in several scenes, especially the bathroom scene.  I enjoyed pretty much everything though.

The commentaries for both movies are hilarious.

Actually...the DVD isnt really that bad. I wouldnt pay $22.00 for it though - maybe $15

Wolverine was a badass movie....with that said Hulk Vs wasn't all that bad. I'd say Batman:Gotham Knights and the two Hellboy animated dvds are probably the best of the animated superhero movies from the last two-three years.

The Hulk VS. dvd is awesome stuff. It not only made Thor interesting to me for the first time in a long time, but the Wolverine feature was far more satisfying than Origins was.

TORONTO — Canadian Ryan Reynolds says he's "hugely passionate" about his upcoming movie based on the Marvel Comics character Deadpool.

The Vancouver native played Deadpool -- a quippy mutant antihero who wields two swords -- in this summer's blockbuster "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," and confirmed in an interview that he was looking forward to starring in a spinoff centred on the character.

"I never like to say I'm doing a movie until I break for lunch on the first day, but it's something I'm hugely passionate about," Reynolds said while in Toronto to promote his upcoming romantic comedy, "The Proposal," in which he stars opposite Sandra Bullock.

"I feel that the powers that be are equally enthusiastic."

In "Wolverine," Reynolds' character begins as a wise-cracking mercenary and ends horribly disfigured -- and mute -- after he's the subject of a series of experiments that give him a multitude of superpowers.

In the comics -- which were popular for a black humour that occasionally veered into slapstick -- Deadpool initially submits to the experiments because he's stricken with cancer.

Without giving away any potential plot points, Reynolds said he hoped the film would stay faithful to its source material.

"I hope to see it closely mirror the comic books, more than anything," he said. "There are infinite possibilities with that character. There's no one else like him in the comic book universe.

"There are a lot of different villains to choose from and a lot of different characters that come in and out of Deadpool's universe."

Speaking of that animated universe - I picked up the first volumen of Wolverine & the X-Men last night. Not too shabby, and I just now realized that Wolverine is Steve Blum aka Spike from the English dub of Cowboy Bebop - that's good shit since the English dub for that series wasn't too bad in and of itself.

Anyway, I got through episode one last night and will probably watch the rest this week. Anyone else?

I like the series.  Some might complain about the portrayal of Cyclops, but I always thought he was a flat character anyways so it doesn't bother me any.  The focus is on Wolverine of course, but that's nothing new and the name of the series already tells you that.  A lot happens in the finale, so I'm quite interested on where they go from here.

Once you can, to steal from Yoda, "unlearn what you have learned" about the X-Men, you can really get in to and enjoy Wolverine and the X-Men.  Cyclops is portrayed EXACTLY how he should be when you consider he lost his mentor as well as his woman both at the same time.

Bumping this for the book release of the History on the X-Men: The Animated Series TV Show. Ordering from there gets you an official signed copy(!)

Previously on X-Men is Eric Lewald’s personal, inside account of how the series got on the air, the many challenges that were overcome, and how the show prevailed.  The head writer interviewed 36 of the artists, writers, voice cast, and executives who helped make this game-changing series a worldwide success.  This book is an authoritative look into the creation of the animated series that nobody expected to succeed.   Lewald offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at the Saturday-morning cartoon series that changed Hollywood, and he includes over 100 photos and story boards from his private collection.

I literally discovered it thanks to the X-Men Review with X Writers video from Fandom Entertainment on Youtube. Promptly ordered it (450 pages!)
