Three notes before you begin watching this excellent Deadpool fan movie:
1) This is much, much better than any Deadpool movie Hollywood will manage to make in the next 10 years, although I think the chances of Hollywood making a Deadpool movie in the next 10 years is pretty close to zero.
2) Take another look at that Dungeons & Dragons 3: The Book of Vile Darkness movie trailer below. Notice while it does have higher production values, this Deadpool fan movie is superior in every other way. Admittedly, this thing isn’t Citizen Kane or anything, but it’s a good, well-made fan flick, and the D&D3 movie is just totally godawful. Yet technically D&D3 is considered the “real” movie. Hollywood is completely fucked up.
3) This video contains graphic violence against yellow caption boxes. You have been warned.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
