With great power comes great irresponsibility.

Deadpool made it to San Diego Comic-Con in time for tonight’s 20th Century Fox panel.

And the movie’s profane, hilarious and violent clip brought Hall H to its feet, chanting “one more time”.  The Hollywood Reporter recap says it featured a cameo from Stan Lee as an emcee in a strip club (Vancouver’s No. 5 Orange) and jokes about Wade Wilson not wanting a Green Lantern suit and about how horrible he looks after scarring. Plus a fight between Deadpool and Colossus and another fight where Deadpool flips out of an overturned SUV, shoots three men in the head and then utters an expletive when he sees the big hole in his own hand (filmed on the Georgia Viaduct).

Cast made the rounds — Ryan Reynolds,  T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, Brianna Hildebrand, Gina Carano and Morena Baccarin,

Vancouver’s own Ryan Reynolds came home this past Spring to film big budget feature Deadpool directed by VFX whiz Tim Miller on a closed Georgia Viaduct, in a Surrey junk yard, a crappy apartment set in the former Terminal City Ironworks compound and various “dive” bars like the Cobalt Hotel and strip club No. 5 Orange.

Deadpool, aka The Merc With a Mouth, is the character Reynolds played in Wolverine, an X-Men Origins movie starring Hugh Jackman, but that film wasn’t true to darkly comic former special forces soldier-turned-mercenary.  In Marvel comic-book lore, Wade Wilson is a wise-cracking gun-for-hire with cancer who partakes in military experiments as part of the Weapon X plan to cure himself by replicating Wolverine’s mutant ability to heal quickly. The experiment succeeds except Wilson ends up terribly scarred. In Wolverine, Deadpool was surgically altered and mouthless. Not this time. Deadpool movie Deadpool is an amoral obscene motormouth who never stops talking — and keeps breaking the fourth-wall to yak to the audience.

No longer vulnerable because of  his new healing abilities, he hunts the man who wrecked his life — the villain Ajax (Ed Skrein) — and takes out any bad guys who get in his way with help from his sidekick, pal and arms dealer Weasel (T.J.Miller) and his girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), aka Copycat. Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianne Hildebrand) is Colossus’s apprentice.

Deadpool — with guns blazing — is front and centre in an Entertainment Weekly cover illustration with The Walking Dead’s Michonne, the Human Torch, Wonder Woman, The Hunger Games’ Katniss, Star Wars: The Force Awakens Driod BB-8 and Doctor Who.
