Deadpool: Greatest (& Sassiest) Movie Quotes, Ranked

“I’m Batman” and “F**k Wolverine” are just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many sassy Deadpool quotes you will probably die laughing by the time you reach the end of the list.

Well, that’s just lazy writing

Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese inserted some really intelligent writing into the screenplay. The Deadpool movies are also used as a vehicle to parody the mainstream superhero genre. To show the world just how cheesy conventional superhero movies can sometimes become, they make Reynolds‘ Wade Wilson take a look at the camera and deliver this fantastic line.

Zip it Thanos

It would have been super crazy if Deadpool let this one slide. Brolin played the Mad Titan Thanos for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There was no way Wade Wilson was not going to mention that. And his timing was absolute perfection.

Negasonic Teenage – What the Shit?!?! That’s the coolest name ever.

Deadpool knows he is just a pawn, a character dreamt up by a real human who is literally painting the world around him. So he regularly breaks the fourth wall and shows that he knows a lot more than he is allowed to. He frequently talks about the many superheroes and their personas, sometimes even jumping ship and talking about superheroes from other universes. When Deadpool hears the superhero codename of the teenage girl accompanying Colossus, he is taken aback. Negasonic Teenage Warhead is indeed a badass name.

All of these elderly white men on the wall. I should’ve brought my rape whistle

Deadpool 2 hit the screens on the summer of 2018. That was during the peak period of the #MeToo movement. Deadpool’s fourth wall breaking antics were taken to yet another level in the Deadpool sequel. When Wade is in the X-Mansion, talking to Colossus, he makes a snide remark at the many portraits of older men hanging on the walls. That was witty as hell with the allegory being a clear indication at the greatest scandal to hit the entertainment industry n recent years.

I want to die a natural death at the age of 102….like the City of Detroit

This joke requires us to give you a backstory. Ryan Reynolds is Canadian. But the interesting fact is – so is Deadpool in the comic books. The city of Detroit died a very abrupt death with businesses leaving the area and financial hindrances slowing its growth. Deadpool was not just making fun of Detroit‘s downfall. It was actually a hidden jab at one of America’s greatest failures. And it was a Canadian poking fingers. So it was meant to hurt twice as much.

So dark. Are you sure you are not from the DC Universe?

When Deadpool encounters Cable for the first time, he is instantly taken aback. The Deadpool franchise uses excessive violence as profanity. But they manage to flip the script and make it comic and fun-oriented. Cable’s introduction was very dark. This forced Wade Wilson to make another meta comment pointing out Brolin’s character’s similarities with the superheroes of another ival movie universe.

Please don’t make the super suit green…or animated!

That was a clear jab at Ryan Reynolds previous stint in a superhero movie. In 2012’s Green Lantern, Reynolds portrayed the role of Hal Jordan. The movie was a box office disaster and was critically panned. Ryan Reynolds had always wanted to be a part of a superhero movie. Green Lantern was a bust but he turned the tables with Deadpool. Thank goodness he got another cance as the Merc with a Mouth.
