Given that both installments became the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time, it’s utterly insane to think that 20th Century Fox spent a decade doing their best to ensure that Dead Pool never made it out of development hell.
Forced to stand by while the character was slaughtered beyond recognition X-Men Origins: WolverineRyan Reynolds, a role he admittedly only took on for no one else to play, grabbed the fourth wall-breaking bull by his confident horns and decided to attempt to navigate the choppy waters of studio politics himself.
It was the famously leaked test material that served as the catalyst for Dead Pool to exist at all, and now the strictly adult-oriented superhero is owned by Disney, which would have sounded crazy just a few years ago. Reynolds is collaborating with Hugh Jackman for his third solo performance, but it’s the original that has fought its way to success on the red-clad assassin’s home platform.
According to FlixPatrol, Dead Pool has exploded in popularity at Disney Plus – with Jackman’s return as Wolverine no doubt encouraging subscribers to try again. It even got an eye on the streaming service’s global top 10 list, which would be a damn good feat considering family-friendly offerings and PG-13-rated Marvel projects have historically proved very hard to come by remove.
The sequel is also on the way, according to recent news dead pool 3 being met with a further delay hasn’t stopped fans from revisiting the first two chapters.
