I saw Deadpool earlier today. It was great. An only-a-little-bit-spoilery review of the movie is here.
But I have been asked about any references made to the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie that also featured Ryan Reynolds, as a mouthy sword swinging military operative Wade Wilson who is transformed into a cross-mutant monstrosity.
This continuity is completely ignored, save for two things.
When undergoing the metaphor-for-waterboarding that transforms Wade Wilson into Deadpool, it is suggested that he could be shut up by having his mouth stitched together.
And secondly? We see a toy of the character, with long Wolverine claws added on, in Wade Wilson’s apartment.
That’s it everyone. You’re safe…
