He's fucking Deadpool.  He is aware that he's in a comic (and movie) and can do all kinds of reality-bending things.

Additionally, I don't know how you can see any action movies, ever.


Every time I watch this I love it more.  For some reason, I'm especially taken with his non sequitur "Hi, Tom!" at the end.

I'm no fan of Ryan Reynolds, but this character is custom-built for his brand of hyper-fast smart-aleckiness.

Yeah, I didn't remember that part of the long trailer.  It makes more sense now.

I have a feeling Reynolds will be a big hit in this role.  Personally I think he's terrible at the smartass role because he never makes it entertaining for me.  I guess Deadpool (the character) isn't my cup of tea.

Most action movies don't have things that don't make sense, like a motorcycle rider getting off his motorcycle to stand in front of a flipping vehicle which looks like it would crush him, just to shoot blindly into it.  This is not typical of action movies.

Typical of bollywood action movies, which make it amazing.

It's part of Deadpool's character to constantly break the 4th wall.  It's part of his madness.   This is awesome and I find it funny that this leaked so close to San Diego Comic Con. 

Its created a buzz that hopefully Fox is listening

the comment that 'most action movies don't have things that don't make sense' confuses me.  Action movies are the genre that tends to have the most things that make no sense to me.  It's the type of movie I feel can get away with absurd stuff.

There are levels of absurdity in action movies.  Just because I don't like over-the-top ridiculousness doesn't mean I can't enjoy ANY action movie.  There are, of course, suspension of disbelief in most movies.  I have to accept that Tony Stark can fly in his powered suit.  Fine.  No problem.  I have a hard time accepting that the guy in the motorcycle stands up off his moving motorcycle only to stand in the way of the flipping SUV and shoot at it for some unknown reason.  Plus I have to put up with Ryan Reynolds.  That kind of stuff isn't in most action movies and isn't the kind of action I enjoy.  And no, I can't stand John Woo movies either.  These examples aren't indicative of ALL action movies.

That was good.  I agree, Ryan Reynolds is a perfect fit for the role.  I hope they do this.
