Considering how veiled, subtle, or niche some of star Ryan Reynolds' references really were - and given the speed with which some of them are delivered - we thought it worthwhile to break down the truly hidden or nuanced bits of trivia for fans.
Whether you're a diehard fan of Wade Wilson, or just a casual movie fan who would like to see how many jokes and one-liners they completely missed, we hope our list is exactly what you're looking for. L" The nods to the comic book creators are plentiful, and it doesn't take long for the crew to start throwing them around.
The movie opens on a slow-motion pan through a tumbling SUV, with a coffee cup clearly visible floating through the air. The camera tracks close enough for audiences to catch the "Rob L. The First Green Lantern Shot Fans knew that there were going to be some shots taken at the expense of Green LanternRyan Reynolds' previous attempt at bringing a beloved comic book character to life.
Surprisingly, the jokes aren't cruel in any way, and the first throwaway laugh comes in the same opening sequence. One of Deadpool's victims' wallets is seen floating through the SUV, with what looks to be a collectible card of a man in a Green Lantern costume and grinning ear to ear.
The suit isn't distinguishable as GL since the rights would probably be hard to wrestlebut the joke lands all the same.
Hello Kitty On top of the card and coffee cup, a tube of Hello Kitty lip balm is also tumbling along with the SUV's occupants during the title cards. It's safe to assume that Wade brought it with him into the car, since his affection for the Japanese brand - which somehow makes complete sense - was earlier established by the movie's official Twitter feed. As the sole Twitter account being followed by the mercenary's online crew, the appearance here is a joke with a suprising number of levels.
Someone Order a Pizza?
Ryan Reynolds makes his un-costumed debut in the movie in an unconventional way, having broken into a stranger's apartment and ordered a pizza to their door - before carrying out the job he was hired for. The scene is immediately familiar to comic readers, since it's pulled straight from the pages of Deadpool 10 Unfortunately for the pizza boy here Gavin instead of JeremyWade really did end up killing him as part of his contract.
So the movie version is actually a softened, sugarcoated one, it seems. Famous Feige's It's hard to look away from the non-stop one-liners from Reynolds in that same scene, but get an eyeful of the pizza box. Despite the mustached Italian chef on the outside of the box, it's clearly shown to have been ordered from "Famous Feige's" - an overt reference to Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige.
Hard to say which job landed him the cardboard cameo, but it's a sweet touch all the same. Sister Margaret's School When the other mercenaries and contract killers in Wade's line of work need to find a job, or just kick back, drink some beers, play some pool, and crack some skulls, they head to the ironically named 'Sister Margaret's Home for Wayward Girls.
It's officially titled the Hellhouse, with the owner and contract dispatcher, 'Patch' having been combined into the character of Wade's trusted ally, Weasel T. Creator Cameo When Wade actually enters the bar, he greets two patrons at the end of the bar: It's safe to assume that plenty of other writers got their chance to appear in one form or another in the bar, but fans may have a hard time telling fact from assumption.
We might never know Copycat The movie focuses on Vanessa Morena Baccarin as the true love of Wade Wilson, but the comics told a very different story. Vanessa Carlysle was also known as Copycat, a mutant capable of shape-shifting.

The movie doesn't come close to approaching the idea - perhaps in a sequel? She claims that she's played a lot of parts in her life, but a damsel in distress isn't one of them. Only time will tell just how literal she was being Light Reading Long before fans knew that the Deadpool movie would be guaranteed to land an R rating, Ryan Reynolds and the crew had some fun with the announcement.
Apparently, Wade actually feels guilty: Shoop The original script for Deadpool had him singing along to Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl" while waiting for Ajax and his crew to pass beneath him, but the finished film took a different route.
Salt-N-Pepa's "Shoop" still keeps the same sense of humor alive, but comes with an added detail. The group's hit single was released inthe same year that Deadpool got his very own comic book series.Seth Rogen On The Secret of Sequels - IMDb EXCLUSIVE
Telltale Signs When the first test footage leaked, fans of Deadpool reacted with so much enthusiasm and excitement, Fox greenlit the movie almost overnight. Rob Liefeld got a direct shout out in that test reel, but the when Deadpool first emerges from his crashed vehicle on the freeway, the street signs in the background feature yet another nod, mainly to the other co-creator, Fabian Nicieza. Parker Blvd Along with the other street signs, there's also a turn-off for Parker Blvd.
There's only one famous Parker in the world of Marvel Comics Peter, better known as the friendly neighborhood Spider-Manso it's likely not a coincidence.
Considering how many other references to Spider-Man Wade actually makes in the rest of the movie, seeing a nod this subtle is actually pretty refreshing. Colossus seems to agree that it happens a bit too often, but still builds character. Apparently, the destruction shown in the trailers for X-Men: A Quippy Canuck Fans might not know it, but there's something that star Ryan Reynolds has in common with Deadpool beyond their impressive physique and knack for humor: The exact birthplace of Deadpool isn't officially known, but it did give the actor some opportunities to sprinkle in a bit of Canadian humor.

Aside from his golf commentary centering on a player from "the city that rhymes with fun" - Regina, Saskatchewan - Wade uses his hand being pulverized against Colossus' face as an opportunity to sing the first lyrics to Canada's anthem, "O But what good is subtlety? Wolverine's take on Deadpool makes an appearance as Wade discusses his most prized possession - thankfully, the figure is a diversion, since it's really his WHAM!
Liam Neeson Nightmare When he's caught shedding tears by himself at night, Wade hurries back to bed, claiming he had a nightmare that he stole Liam Neeson's daughter - a reference to the now three-films-strong Taken series.

Johns stated that the character of the Flash in the show would resemble his comic book counterpart, complete with his trademark red costume, and not be a poor imitation. This allowed the creative team to flesh out Barry's story and his world on a bigger budget, as opposed to a backdoor pilot's constraint of incorporating characters from the parent show. The pilot was officially ordered on January 29,and was written by Berlanti, Kreisberg, and Johns, and directed by Nutter.
