Bad Guy: I think I should wire your mouth shut.
Deadpool: Oh, you really don’t want to do that.
For several years, my daughter has had a poster on her wall of a masked, red-clad superhero. When people see it, they ask, “Who is that? Spider-Man?”
“No,” she always corrects, “It’s Deadpool.”
“Deadpool?” the response always comes, “Who’s that?”
Deadpool is one of those comic book characters that no one knows about except for die hard nerds and comic book fans. When my daughter found out he was going to get his own movie, she pretty much went into hysterics. We both saw it the day it came out in wide release last Friday.
