Science Explains Why Your Cat Keeps Knocking Stuff Over

    i think of deadpool as the joker from nolans movies. you get that seriousness and then he cracked a joke dressed as a nurse and their you go a deadpool movie still not convinced about ryan reynolds but i can dig it.

    Can Deadpool break the 4th wall alongside the serious xmen characters? YES! HE DOES IT ALL THE FUCKING TIME IN THE COMICS!

  3. CB_Demented says:

    I’m cautiously optimistic…very cautiously. I’d rather have them not make a Deadpool movie than to do a half assed job of it and wreck the character like they did Rogue and several other characters. If he isn’t the biggest smartass in the Marvel Universe, then he isn’t Deadpool.

  4. I’m definitely happy that Deadpool is part of the X-Men universe, considering his origin is closely tied to Wolverine.

    Gotta get my daily dose of the Chobot

  8. Anthony W. says:

    Would have appreciated you breaking the third wall today Chobot.  Fail.

    Jess, first off your hair looks great today. I am still kinda creeped out by the ghost in the background. Can’t tell if its a person or on strings (Creepy). Give me Dead Pool anything, this is the character we all need but dont fully realize we want yet. Things will change though. Get rid of the ghost and add a zombie or Blair Frankenstein.
