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)
