Deadpool Movie Spoilers – What About X-Men Origins: Wolverine Continuity?

I saw Deadpool earlier today. It was great. An only-a-little-bit-spoilery review of the movie is here.

But I have been asked about any references made to the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie that also featured Ryan Reynolds, as a mouthy sword swinging military operative Wade Wilson who is transformed into a cross-mutant monstrosity.


This continuity is completely ignored, save for two things.

When undergoing the metaphor-for-waterboarding that transforms Wade Wilson into Deadpool, it is suggested that he could be shut up by having his mouth stitched together.

And secondly? We see a toy of the character, with long Wolverine claws added on, in Wade Wilson's apartment.

That's it everyone. You're safe…
