Here there be spoilers, or at least links to same.
And links to tropes, from which you may never escape.
And almost certainly language that is not a normal part of this blog, at least in the links (although in the blog itself not as bad as the players in the movie itself; their language is... well... very Samuel Jackson. Hey! Maybe we'll get an example of that word from Jackson's mouth in the Marvel franchise after all!).
You have been warned.
First of all, Deadpool is a dick.
He's not the Jerk Jock or the Boisterous Bruiser that Thor is.
Or the Jerk with a Heart of Gold of Iron Man.
Certainly not the Beware the Nice Ones Ideal Hero of Captain America.
In fact, Deadpool's not a hero at all, as he lampshades constantly throughout the movie. Probably not even an Anti-Hero. Possibly he's an Anti-Villain. Or even a Villain Protagonist (although none of those links include Deadpool in them under Live-Action Film... and I haven't checked the Comic Books links because, well, this is the Marvel Cinematic Universe).

Oh, and those lampshades that Deadpool hangs all over the movie? He does most of them by Breaking the Fourth Wall. In one spot, he even lampshades breaking the fourth wall.
But he is possibly the most sympathetic bad guy I've seen in this universe, Not even excepting Magneto.
Oh, and he can sew. Certainly better than Spidey can. He can out-snark Spiderman, too, plus adding all those words I don't say on this blog, as mentioned above.
So basically, Deadpool is to Marvel Cinematic Universe as Spamalot is to Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Only more so.
