Deadpool is dead. Long live… Deadpool? Ryan Reynolds gets funny on Twitter. Again.

April 9th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Today is the day that Deadpool #250 hits shelves and it’s rumoured to be the issue that sees the death of Deadpool…

But Ryan Reynolds, currently filming the bigscreen version of the character, is having none of it.

The actor Tweeted the above image (Tweet below) with the hashtag #Alivepool and, frankly, it’s crude as hell, funny and exactly what we’d expect from the character. Well done, that man.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. 

Deadpool arrives in style on February 12th, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
