This article explains this dynamic in one of its points: 6. What’s My Name? Ajax and Deadpool have quite a history in the comic series. Ajax loves subjecting Deadpool to unfathomable torture while Deadpool loves messing with the fact that Ajax’s real name is Francis. Their relationship is perfectly translated on screen as Ajax asks Deadpool ...

When Marvel sold the live action rights to many of their characters and groups of characters in the 1990's, it was on the condition that the rights would revert back to Marvel if the properties were not used within a certain number of years. This condition has led to the rights for various characters reverting to Marvel since, the latest and most well-known ...

After reviewing the script again from the advice of a friend offline, it looks like Wade's 4th wall breaking isn't a power. While he has his collar on, he quips the following while turning and looking directly at the camera: Fun fact about the Ice Box... though no one's ever seen it, they keep a monster in the basement. Right next to a huge, steaming bowl ...

It's not a mutation. It's actually a sign of his madness. Deadpool gained his powers through torture1, which mentally broke him. Not only is he under the "illusion" (in-universe this is seen as a derangement) that he is a fictional character (his frequent 4th-wall breaks) Ryan Reynolds has told Empire that he’s insistent on Deadpool‘s habit of breaking ...

Copper and lead are actually magnetic -- more accurately, they're diamagnetic. Thus, in theory, a magnetic field in front of the copper-jacketed lead bullet could resist the bullet's motion and, along with a field around it, suspend it in the air. In reality, the strength of a magnetic field capable of stopping a supersonic bullet1 at point-blank range is ...

Same timeline, different helmets. The events of First Class and Apocalypse are in the same timeline / universe. There is no contradiction here. After the events of Days of Future Past, Magneto gives up his mutant life and the Magneto persona to raise a family in Poland and work an honest job. We don't know exactly what happened to his first helmet in ...

They didn't think she was a mutant, they thought she was mute. The conversation went like this: WILL How long’s your girl been that way? (off Logan’s look) Mute. LOGAN Since... well.. the beginning. -Mangold, J. (Writer, Director), Green, M. (Writer) and Frank, S. (Writer). Logan. Final Shooting Draft Screenplay. August 2016. because Laura ...

If you watch the extra scene after the credits, Xavier has transferred his consciousness to the body in a coma he was referring to in the ethics class earlier in the film. This was when he asked, would it be ethical for a telepath to take over a body which was born with no mind and so kept in a coma for its entire life. He is smiling as he has an escape ...

This is covered by the film's (surprisingly faithful) official novelisation. In short, she makes an attempt to use his powers but it turns out that Magneto isn't a complete.barking.moron and has factored this into his evil plans. With his bare hands, he touched her face. Suddenly she felt the incredible energy flowing into her. She could see ...

I would like to give more context regarding why exactly the snitch would be so eager to come out with his knowledge of his workmate's superpowers. At that moment of the movie (1983), the action's set in Polish People's Republic, time of great political turmoil - sort of Sturm und Drang moment. Workplaces were being infiltrated by intelligence and secret ...

To understand the film, none. To understand the jokes, you need to watch or know X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Those jokes and all the other references (almost) are listed in this Movies & TV answer. (It’s full of spoilers.) Colossus's character did appear in X2, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past, but none ...

Wolverine was shot in the head and he is knocked out, but to me it clearly looks like the bullet is sitting in his head in the video in your question. As his skin heals, the bullet pops out. (Valorum's answer confirms this with a quote from the novelization.) So the bullet does not look like it passed through his Adamantium-bonded skull. And if it had, and ...

It depends on what you mean by her "natural" form. As far as we can tell, the blue spiky look is Mystique's "normal" appearance as a mutant; every other form is something she has to intentionally affect. (We see this, for example, when she is knocked out and her shapeshifting ends, this is the form she takes.) However, it seems likely that her "usual" ...

He's old and is being poisoned by his Adamantium implants The film Logan has been created in such a way that it doesn't necessarily need to be explained in details. The writers and producers seem to feel that it works better this way. Logan is now not healing the same as he used to, and that's just the way it is. Explanations Sustained Long-Term ...

Yes James Mangold, who is the Writer and Director of the movie Logan as well as the Director of The Wolverine, confirms on Twitter that he did intend that as foreshadowing the whole time!! Twitter user "MauriceTheChosenOne" questions James Mangold about this very setup: To which Mangold replies: Well done Maurice And later announces: And here's an ...

Director James Mangold answered this in an interview with Empire Online. In this XCU version, Logan's healing factor abilities have altered over time. While they still heal him, they no longer heal him perfectly, leaving scars. “One of the things we all thought about as we worked on this film is, well, we don’t want to rebuild everything. We want to have ...

Read the first couple paragraphs here. TL;DR: The bullet did not penetrate the adamantium layer, he's just been hit in the skull by a lump of metal traveling at probably something over 1,000 feet per second, which is why he got knocked out which seems the most plausible explanation. The bullet was just embedded in the flesh that's around his skull.

It seems likely that the person who "snitched" on Magneto was this guy who saw him extend his hand and then look around suspiciously. As to what motivated him to talk to the police, we can't really say but the general consensus seems to be that Magneto is a vicious murderer and would-be assassin of world leaders rather than a misunderstood advocate for ...

In response to Colossus's line: Let's go see the professor. Deadpool replies: McAvoy or Stewart? These timelines are confusing! Sources: looper.com cinemablend.com mashable.com imdb.com

X-23 actually only has adamantium plated claws sheathed in her forearm and in her feet. She escaped the facility where she was being held at before they could do a full coating of adamantium through her skeletal structure like Wolverine. Please see one shot comic X-23: Target X.

As stated by Jontia, yes, Nina is a mutant. While this is never explicitly states it seems clear enough from the film that she has the ability to communicate and control animals. She calls upon a flock of birds to attack the police officers before she is killed. Police Officer: What's happening? She is one of them. [...] Police Officer: Make her stop....

Ray "Raygun" Lai is a professional comic-book artist and movie concept artist. He worked on both the Battlestar Galactica Miniseries (as a "Series Illustrator") as well as the X-Men 2 film (as a "Graphic Designer"). The BSG Wiki mentions that his name was included as a thank-you for his work. Ray Lai was a concept artist for the 2003 Miniseries. His name ...

Because when he travels back to the 1970s, he's not physically travelling in time, he's being mentally projected into his former self and in 1973 he didn't have an adamantium skeleton yet. You can see from the image below (immediately after he gets out of bed) that his claws are just bone. His weight would therefore be around 175lbs not the 300lbs he weighs ...

The character of Peter Maximoff / Quicksilver is an adaptation of Comic book character Pietro Maximoff. From the Marvel comics storyline, Quicksilver is the son of Magneto (Eric Lehnserr) and Magda. He is the twin brother of Scarlett Witch. There are lot of differences between the Marvel comics X-Men storyline and the X-Men movies. In the book, X-Factor ...

Megan hired Wade. WADE: Do you happen to know a Megan Orflosky? Get that right? Orflovsky? [Jeremy nods]. WADE: Cause she knows you. Jeremy, I belong to a group of guys who take a dime to beat a fella down. And Megan, she’s not made of money, but lucky for her, I got a soft spot. An earlier version of the script indicates that she managed to ...

It means that Deadpool finds the shirt so ugly or unfashionable or unflattering that he can't believe that someone would actually leave their home and be seen in public wearing it.

Short answer: We don't know because Deadpool hasn't come out, but Ryan Reynolds (who was heavily involved in writing/producing the movie) was pretty clear that his Deadpool character is a brand new character: “Deadpool appearing in ‘Origins’ is not the Deadpool we are representing in this film, in any way shape or form.” src Longer answer: Wade Wilson in ...
