First Reactions to the First Deadpool Screening: "Best Marvel Adaptation So Far"
Last night, Deadpool had a very Deadpool-like premiere, as fans who thought they were attending preview footage of the movie were surprised with the entire film, and were joined by the likes of Ryan Reynolds, Stan Lee, TJ Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld. And just as we were expecting, the response was completely rapturous. A few fans called it the best Marvel adaptation so far (or one of the best), and one even called it the best movie she had ever seen, bar none.







Of course, reactions to these first screenings usually need to be taken with a grain of salt, as they are often filled with fans who are selected as a result of their likelihood to give positive reviews, whether they're actual plants or just perfectly fitting the target demographic. Let us all remember that the Fantastic Four Are Shockingly Positive" href="http://www.outerplaces.com/science-fiction/item/9493-first-reactions-to-fantastic-four-are-shockingly-positive" target="_blank">first reactions to Fantastic Four said it was "amazing." Overall, I've never seen a first screening yield bad reviews, whether for a good movie like Jurassic World or Ant-Man, a disappointing movie like Age of Ultron, or a disastrous movie like Fantastic Four.

That being said, these reviews for Deadpool are even more enthusiastic than usual, and it also just seems like a good movie. Ryan Reynolds seems perfect for the role, we already know there are at least a few good jokes from the trailers, and the violence, swearing, and breaking of the fourth wall all seem very faithful to the character. If we had to guess, some critics may object to the "standard plot" mentioned by a couple of these tweets, but fans will love it.
