Here Are All the Easter Eggs and Pop Culture References from the Deadpool Movie
Deadpool shocked everybody this weekend with it's wonderfully rude and crude brand of humor helping it smash records at the box office. Brutally self-aware, Deadpool was a comic book movie the likes of which we'd never seen before, and it paid a great deal of service to pop culture fans with references to everything from Ferris Bueller to the Green Lantern. 

Pop Culture references and Easter Eggs are a hallmark of the comic book movie genre, but Deadpool takes things to a new level with nods to Ryan Reynolds' past performances, tributes to Hugh Jackman's junk, and fourth wall breaks within fourth wall breaks. So, just how many Easter Eggs and references were there in the Deadpool movie? As usual, Mr Sunday Movies has dutifully jotted them all down and collected them into one video. In total, there were over 100 nods and references with varying degrees of importance. How many did you spot?



The crazy thing is, we're sure this video hasn't even caught all of the pop culture references. That's all good, though, because it means we have a reason to go back and watch this movie over and over again.

While I loved just about all of these references, my personal favorite has to be the less than subtle nod to Monty Python's classic 'Black Knight Battle' from 'The Holy Grail'.
