Deadpool the wise
@Ray213, if he was wise he would've used you're
@WuberDuk, he's Deadpool. He's not exactly known for being smart
@WuberDuk, we'll that'd be the editors fault. He just pronounced "you're" so he can't spell it wrong....
@WuberDuk, wisdom is know what to do and when to do it, knowledge is knowing what it is and what is correct.
@WuberDuk, he used your just to piss readers off.
Did this actually cause a ruckus?
@I smell of smores, Yeah I never heard about this either. Seems like something people would complain about.
@I smell of smores, some blogger complained about the image of Apocalypse choking Mystique that was used on a billboard was "promoting violence against women" or some stupid shjt like that
@Sexy Homunculus, I can't stand people that have to find something to complain about in everything...
Besides, it is mutant on mutant violence, so no one cares, not even Mutant Lives Matter.
@I smell of smores, yup, the film studio put out an apology for the advertisement a few days ago
@Sexy Homunculus, I wasn't gonna beat my wife, until I saw a billboard of a giant gray man hurting a blue woman.
@Sexy Homunculus, it was just some blogger rose McGowan hopped on the bandwagon which is the only reason it got as much traction as it did
@Sexy Homunculus, I think it's just because it was Jennifer Lawrence. Everyone is still jonesing over her. If this was Lindsey Lohan, nobody would care. Also note - I speak this as a female.
@I smell of smores, ueah aparentlynot was a movie advertismemt, and a bunch of feminazis got butt hurt about it and had it taken down.
@Sexy Homunculus, that's dumb :/ can't believe people would think that .. It's just a hero movies .. Where females are powerful
@PeanutButterPopsicle, Actress Rose McGowan from the later seasons of Charmed made a fuss about the image of Mystique being attacked by Apocalypse on a bill board as promoting aggression towards women =_____=
@Sexy Homunculus, that same picture is posted up on a side of a building right outside LAX airport, so like everyone can see it when the smog clears.
@Big mouthed asshole, probably not. The news probably just heard one person say it and reported it to get some ratings
@Roux Ben, its called "equal when convenient right"
Has anyone heard any controversy over the Apocalypse scene? No? Interesting.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , sometimes it's nice in Canada. We get a couple weeks buffer from the social media circus.
Is something complaining about that? Why are people so obsessed with what other people complain about?
The issue with this wasn't the image itself; it's that it was provided as advertisement without context. That's why people went nuts. None of these images should be on billboards without context. Then again, that's just my opinion.
@Rook, we'll there's a bunch of blue mutants there some context, but I agree
@Rook, people went nuts because the people are idiots who are professionally offended.
@Rook, here's to context, a villain is choking a hero, this is to make him seem even more like a villain, giving him threat to the heroes, you don't need to see x men to get that who ever this guy is, he is threatening, which make you sympathize with his detractors and hope they over come the challenge he presents
@VincentV, I am personally extremely well aware of the context, but I appreciate you educating me on it anyway.
@Rook, well your issue is the image is that is was put on billboards without context and I was demonstrating that enough context could be inferred from just the image without having seen the film, I haven't seen it I don't know the plot but just from the image I can see that it conveys to me who is the villain and who is the hero and that they are in a compromised state to the villain make me want them to overcome their adversary, I'm just pointing out that any controversy to come out of this is silly when almost every superhero film is a struggle between good and evil and all this poster did was portray who was good who was evil and the threat that they poised
@VincentV, I'm not implying that I am personally concerned about it. It doesn't OFFEND me. I don't think it's a good idea, but I'm not offended. MY point is that the people who WERE offended were offended because they didn't want their children - who may NOT be familiar with the characters - to just see a man strangling a woman - or vice versa - on a billboard.
@Venturingbud, thank you
What a coincidence! I just finish watching deadpool on blu-Ray (which is now available in store across the country)
Jennifer Lawrence ruined the new xmen movies. Too much focus on her and her character.
@Fatpossum, I don't even rate her now. She's kinda fit but a shjte actress and forced in that film too much. She ruined it for me and I wanted apocalypse to kill her
In all seriousness, peeps of FunnyPics, can i ask if this was by any means offensive and how?
Im just asking because i genuinely havent heard the other side to it. I cant really see any other thing apart fron a man choking a woman out....nothing wrong with that ;)
@GinSan, no context so the professionally offended are saying its promoting woman violence. Waste of brain power those kind of people are.
@GinSan, victim-status is a valuable thing in 1st world countries so people make up things that they're "oppressed" by. This is a prime example
@I Dexios Divine I, hmm fair enough i guess :/
@RustyFapwagon, haha thanks for the reply and info shed soms light on the topic. :D
Yeah but neither of those were a promo image...
Okay but this is one persons opinion... Not every woman is a hypocrite. Also it's a movie
All I've learned from feminists is that I just can't stand them and they're counterproductive to society. I'm going to be a respectful asshole who says what I want, think what I want, and treat all humans equal by making fun of everyone equally and calling a spade a spade.
Who said that wasn't ok?
The world just isn't ready to accept blue on blue violence...
This world has become so PC you can't even breathe without offending someone. People need to stfu and go on with their lives
No. They're all violent. They're all equally okay.
What exactly were people getting their panties in a knot over?
I loved Deadpool's version of Colossus.
I was annoyed that they put a picture from a scene at the end of the movie
@whirligig1at6, it's been out long enough. With movies you have less than two weeks. Anything after that it's your fault for being on the Internet.
@George Feeny, it was a billboard adverisement for the movie, as in put up before the movie was out, and in the physical, non-internet world
@whirligig1at6, it was also in a teaser trailer I saw before the movie was out.
@George Feeny, so back to my original point
@whirligig1at6, that you don't like trailers or ads?
@George Feeny, not when they show important scenes from the end of the movie
@George Feeny, I dont know how you got that I "don't like trailers or ads" from me saying it is annoying when they show scenes from the end of a film.
*you're. As in you're an idiot.
All flame wars aside, Apocalypse looks like a fish
@Liar, really? He looked like Po Dameron to me.
Good guy deadpool
