Fan-made Deadpool knife block puts the Merc’s healing factor to work

F689KW3IMQJGKT8-LARGE-d66bd

Deadpool’s healing factor is so strong, he’s gotten completely decapitated and lived to tell about it. So if there’s any Marvel character well-suited to take a bunch of kitchen knives to the skull, it’s him — a thought Instructables contributor BrittLiv must have had when she created her very own Deadpool knife block.

You’ll think ‘Deadpool’s Day Off’ is a righteous mashup

ferris-deadpool

Fox’s Deadpool famously gave a nod to another fourth wall-breaking hero with a post-credits scene in which a bathrobe-clad Merc With a Mouth tells the audience “It’s over. Go home.” Now, however, the Wade Wilson/Ferris Bueller connection has been taken several steps further with “Deadpool’s Day Off.”

Created by Darth Blender, the video is a hilariously perfect mashup of — you guessed it! — Deadpool and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, with Deadpool as Ferris, Negasonic Teenage Warhead as Sloane and Colossus as Cameron.

Avengers and X-Men wage war in action-packed fan trailer

avengers v xmen

Fans at last saw Spider-Man introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Captain America: Civil War, but it will be a long, long time before they witness the X-Men do the same. Until then, they can watch this epic fan trailer, which pits Marvel’s mutants against Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, over and over and over again.

Seriously, Fox and Marvel aren’t going to reach any kind of deal in the foreseeable future, so settle in with this video on a loop.

With these adorable Deadpool Cosbabies, looks ARE everything

poolbaby5-social

Sure, you may think Deadpool looks like an avocado had sex with an older, more disgusting avocado, but have you seen these Cosbaby versions of the Merc With a Mouth? They’re downright precious.

Unveiled by Hot Toys, each of the five bobble-head figures stands 9.5 centimeters, and depicts Deadpool in a different pose: sword-fighting, gesturing, surprised, striking a fighting pose, and making a hand heart gesture.

Enormous Deadpool statue seeks to seduce Japan

deadpool-statue

Wade Wilson is determined to win over the people of Japan … with an enormous statue of Deadpool lying seductively on the bed of a truck.

If you think that come-hither pose looks familiar, it’s because it was used in the marketing of the blockbuster movie. Only that time, the Merc With a Mouth was lying, Burt Reynolds-like, on a bearskin run, in front of a fireplace.

You’re probably thinking, ‘Do I need a life-size Deadpool replica?’ (Yes, you do)

deadpool-social

If you still have space in your home (and money in your bank account) after buying that life-size Batman, life-size Harley Quinn and life-size Slimer, then a.) wow, nice house, and b.) hold onto that job, because NECA is about to release a life-size Deadpool foam replica.

Unfortunately, there are no final-product images available, but we do have concept art and details, courtesy of BigBadToyStore. Based on Marvel’s Merc with a Mouth (alas, not Ryan Reynolds), this 6-foot replica is made of hand-painted foam rubber and latex.

‘Star Trek’ redshirt brilliantly has cosplayers ‘kill’ him, repeatedly

redshirt1

Attending a comic convention dressed as a Redshirt from Star Trek is, y’know, fine but not exactly inspired. But attending a convention dressed as a Redshirt, and then posing with other cosplayers as they “kill” you over and over again? Genius!

That’s what Timothey Adam did last weekend at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, recruiting cosplayers dressed as characters ranging from Batman and Harley Quinn to Chewbacca and the War Boys to put that Star Trek trope to the test.

Artist reimagines heroes, villains in minimalist ‘Masks’ series

min2

Experimenting with the iconic nature of their costumes, Ukrainian illustrator Yuri Krasnoshchok has distilled the masks and faces of numerous fictional heroes to sparse geometric shapes in a minimalist series called simply “Masks of Superheroes.”

Spider-Man, represented only by those oversize white eyes, is probably the most successful of the bunch, but most of them are almost instantly recognizable, without the aid of the characters’ names.

This flash mob is part dancing, part fighting and all Deadpool

deadpool-flash-mob

Just when we’d written off flash mobs as passé, Deadpool proves us wrong. Wait, make that Deadpools.

As part of the South Korean marketing campaign for the Deadpool movie, the Taekwondo/urban dance group K-Tigers took to the street dressed as the Merc With a Mouth for a high-octane routine set to DMX’s “X Gon’ Give It to Ya” (needless to say, it’s Not Safe For Work).

Deadpool may be out here winning the hearts and minds of Americans countrywide with his smash box office hit, but it only takes one jerk to ruin a guy’s good name. Okay, fine, maybe it’s up to three jerks now. Regardless, it is totally unfair and not nearly funny enough.

A white man between 5’9″ and 5’11” and weighing roughly 200 lbs, that wore the mask of Marvel’s merc with a mouth, champion of the little guy, R-rated star, upstanding community member and all-around good hang Wade “Deadpool” Wilson stuck up the U.S. Bank in South Point, Ohio the afternoon of Friday, February 27, illicitly making off with $2,000 while ruining a marathon-like run of nearly flawless commercial branding.

A collision this morning south of Columbus, Ohio, involving two semi trucks left a lane of interstate closed most of the day as workers cleared debris — including hundreds of comic books — from the highway.

As you can see from the images and video, Deadpool, Vol. 9: Institutionalized was among the casualties.

Petitions call for Deadpool statue in ‘the town that rhymes with fun’ [Updated]

statue-deadpool

Wade Wilson may not be the hero Regina deserves, but he’s the one it wants right now. Or something like that.

A resident of the capital of Saskatchewan has launched not one but two online petitions urging Regina City Council to erect a statue honoring Deadpool. You see, in the blockbuster Ryan Reynolds film, the Merc With a Mouth says, “I’m Wade Wilson from Regina, Saskatchewan. Regina, the town that rhymes with fun.”

Deadpool blasts off with this rocket ride motion statue

rocket-deadpool-social

Factory Entertainment has brought a fan-favorite moment from the 2013 video game to near life with its Deadpool — Rocket Ride Premium Motion Statue.

As you might expect with the Merc With a Mouth, the company’s listing is absolutely filled with innuendo, like “Standing fully erect at a colossal 10 inches high” and “Deadpool’s red rocket gracefully sways back and forth simulating a sky rocket in flight, sure to delight fans eager for further stimulation that regular statues cannot provide.” You get the picture.

The Deadpool Poutine Chimichanga is massive (and apparently delicious)

chimichanga2

Deadpool’s legendary love for deep-fried burritos has inspired one Philadelphia restaurant to create a dish fit for a Merc With a Mouth (and a super-sized appetite).

Behold, the “Deadpool Poutine Chimichanga,” which was added to the menu of Cantina Dos Segundos earlier this month. You may want to grab a bib (and a pacemaker) as we describe it: braised short rib, french fries, fried cheese curd, black beans, bacon, and pickled red onion and jalapeno, served with a side of short rib au jus, and topped with sour cream onion, scallion and cilantro.
