Why We Need Deadpool

Deadpool has seemingly taken the world by storm, and for good reason. He’s funny, awesome, and played by Ryan Reynolds. What’s not to love?

There was a reason why Deadpool is the highest grossing rated R movie EVER. It gave the people what they wanted; a superhero movie that was fun, funny, slightly touching, violent and frankly just freakin’ awesome. Marvel made a superhero movie for the weirdos who want to go see them. Bless them for it. There’s no argument that Marvel is beating the ever loving hell out of DC when it comes to movies. Sorry to burst the bubble of every Nolan fanboy.

After seeing Batman vs. Superman aka Batfleck and hot British dude fight about nothing for three hours, I love Deadpool even more. Not that I hated Bats vs. Supes, it just wasn’t what it could have been. While I was watching it and shoving cheap movie theatre nachos down my world hole, I found myself comparing it to Deadpool and over Marvel movies.

Y U SO DARK, SYNDER?

WHERE DA JOKES?

Y BATS KILLIN’, YO?

Y IS LEX LUTHOR A JOKER RIP OFF?

In a world full of Internet whiners and people who complain and are offended but every little thing, we need Deadpool to slap the chimichangas out of our mouths and remind us it’s okay to have fun and make dick jokes. 

In a world full of coddled children who get trophies for taking a dump, and parents who encourage the behavior, we need a movie that is blatantly not for them. A movie that indirectly told the world “fuck you, this isn’t for kids”, and succeeded because of it.

In a world full of Batman vs. Supermans, be a Deadpool.

Deadpool reminds us of yourselves; he’s not perfect, can’t afford a Batcave, and isn’t a super jacked alien who can destroy the world in five minutes if he wanted to. He made a decision that altered his trajectory and was better because of it. No spoilers so I’ll stop right there.

He is flawed, yet lovable, foul-mouthed and real.

This is why we need Deadpool.
