Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
The success of Deadpool came out of nowhere. In a market crowded by men in spandex, there didn’t seem to be space for another comic-book hero. Yet, 20th Century Fox and director Tim Miller managed to achieve the impossible back in 2016, turning a relatively-unknown, quick-witted mercenary into a global phenomenon through a unique blend of outrageous humour and stylistic excess.
