I would not be surprised to see Deadpool in the last Wolverine movie.

And I agree that Hollywood will learn the wrong lesson.  The lesson isn't "do R-rated, goofy superhero movies."  The lesson is "these characters are popular for a reason - make a good movie that respects that reason."

Completely agree.  I don't think it is popular and successful because it is rated R. I think it has been successful because it is a different animal than all the other comic book films. 

Again and again, when the filmmakers respect the original creations there is success.  See all of the MCU films, and see the FF remake as the opposite evidence.

I loved the fourth wall breaking, but the best part was how he spelled out Francis.  :D

I saw Deadpool yesterday.

Mediocre. Very safe. Characters that felt like they were chosen by a committee. None of those things applied to Deadpool.  :D

I like Deadpool's comment at the X-Men mansion.  And the mocking of X-Men Origins Wolverine.

Standard Internet reactions: (My responses)
Fire Singer. (Yes, the guy who made the first successful Marvel superhero movie)
Give rights back to Marvel (so Marvel movies can become even more convoluted cross-overs)
Mystique is not an X-Man or the leader of the X-Men.  (Seems like mutant characters switched sides a lot)
It's J-Law's fault for being a bigger star now. (Nerds decided they hate her.)
Costumes aren't comic book-accurate (Somethings don't translate well into live action)
Why have none of the characters aged since last film was in the 70's and this is the 80's. (They want CGI Patrick Stewart back?)
Apocalypse isn't fearsome/large/threatening/whatever-enough. (At least he isn't some normal human guy in a business suit or some cop-out)
Of course can't have an X-Men movie without him. (Whatever)

I saw X-Men: Apocalypse tonight and I enjoyed it. It definitely wasn't horrible like people are making it out to be. I think the vogue thing to do now is to bash Fox's X-Men Franchise in some weird hope that Fox will relinquish the rights back to Disney. The fact that Disney just signed a deal with Fox to allow for X-Men based TV shows and the fact that Fox has several X-Men Universe franchise movies in the works means that no matter how badly this movie "tanks", the rights are staying exactly where they are.

In fact, I think this movie when taken together with X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, closes out what should be considered as a much stronger trilogy of X-Men movies than X-Men, X2 & X3: The Last Stand are.

Deadpool made Fox 5 X-Men's worth of box office profits.  Those rights aren't going anywhere.

I just got back from Apocalypse and thought they did a good job overall.  I saw some reports that people were complaining about Sophie Turner's accent, but I thought she did a good job.  I also love how they handle Quicksilver's power!  It was awesome in Days of Future Past and it's just as enjoyable here!

Saw it and it was pretty decent. No great surprises, but entertaining.  The new versions of characters were mostly good. Jubilee gets shorted again. It's hard to reconcile Angel with  X-Men The Last Stand's Angel even in the messed up timeline where people haven't aged much since the Cuban missile crisis. But I guess it's like the comics in that regard!  ;)

Saw this a few days ago, and I'm honestly unsure of what to think of it. It wasn't bad at all, but wasn't really memorable either. Honestly I'm kind of over the Magneto/Mystique story and wouldn't mind if they were left out of the next movie completely. With the [SPOILER] tease in the post-credits scene, I'm assuming the next movie will be set in the 90's, so I hope we get some Jim Lee costume designs.

And can someone find the X-Men's secrets to combating aging? :P

theres a 'clip' of wolvie running around in Weapon X gear killing soldiers on Instagram. looked decent but still didn't seem deadpool violent level. looked really dark and didn't seem any more violent then X2 when he was killing soldiers in the X mansion. I want to see limbs flying off and blood spray, what else would you expect from blades that cut through anything like a hot knife through butter   >:D

Well, it's still PG-13. Wolverine 3 will be R.

Apocalypse isn't doing as well as hoped, at least compared to Days of Future's Past.

But it really looks like TMNT's film franchise might be dead now.

As it should have been a decade or two ago...
