Of course, that’s an odd thing for a character known for excessive violence, naughty language, and occasional nudity to announce. But Deadpool, the writers, and the director spend the bulk of the film trying to live up to that promise, albeit it in very unconventional and roundabout ways—but with the same Deadpool you love at its heart.

Fox’s first X-Men movie paved the way for the current age of comic book movies that we’re living in.
