If you’re not quite convinced, here are 21 Deadpool quotes from the 2016 movie and various comics to get you excited about the infamous Merc with a Mouth. So put on your comfy crocs, heat up a chimichanga, and get ready for Maximum Effort.
Deadpool Quotes From the 2016 Movie
-seconds after a scene of gratuitous violence and murder-
Deadpool: You’re probably thinking, “My boyfriend said this was a superhero movie, but that guy in the suit just turned that other guy into a fucking kebab!” Well, I may be super, but I’m no hero. And, yeah, technically, this is murder. But some of the best love stories start with a murder, and that’s exactly what this is, a love story. And to tell it right…I gotta take you back to long before I squeezed this ass into red spandex.
-in a conversation with Weasel, who runs a mercenary hangout/betting pool/bar-
Deadpool: You know what they call cancer in Spanish?
Weasel: What do they call it?
Deadpool: El cancer.
-arguing for the umpteenth time with the ever-patient Colossus-

Deadpool: Okay, let’s pro/con this superhero thing. Pro—they pull down a gaggle of ass, local dry cleaning discounts, lucrative film deals, both origin stories and larger ensemble team movies. Con—they’re lame-ass teacher’s pets!
-once more to my boy Colossus-
Deadpool: You big chrome cock goblin—you’re really gonna fuck this up for me.
-as Deadpool very, very disastrously attempts to fight Colossus-
Colossus:Do you have an off switch?
Deadpool:Yeah, it’s right next to the prostrate…or is that the on switch?
