Drywall is really soft. That's why stud finders exist for hanging stuff up.

Edit: This makes little sense as the top post. So uh, how about them X-men?

I was able to throw a playing card at a friend who was standing 10 feet away, and embed the said card in his arm.  The card went a quarter of an inch to an inch into his biceps.

How about them cast members?

I'm looking forward to Ryan Renolds and Liev Schreiber.  I think they are both really good actors.  The guy playing Gambit, I didn't like him in Friday Night Lights, so I am wary.

I still stand by Josh Holloway as Gambit. Would have been awesome.

I know my way around drywall.  And a playing card is not sharp enough to slice its way in, nor is it stiff enough to force its way in.  Not to mention the force and inertia you would need to pierce it.  I dont believe that with a standard playing card, that it is possible to pierce the heavy heavy paper that makes Gyprock's outer shell.  The force needed to pierce the foam they were throwing into is far less, thats the same stuff you find at craft stores that you pretty much leave finger prints in by picking up.

Anyway... back on subject:

Ryan better not fuck up Deadpool...  Probably my favorite comic book character ever made...  Although I do agree with the sentiment that he kinda was Deadpool in Blade 3.

Im going to relent for the sake of the X-men.  Frankly half the reason I go see these movies is for the fan fair, so Im pretty stoked on the number of chars being featured.

1) To skeptics about playing cards: Have you never gotten a paper cut?  A paper cut is the result of pulling a narrow, not-at-all-stiff object along a pliant-incredibly-the-opposite-of-stiff surface, the result being that the slightly more resilient former slices through the latter.  A playing card has speed and a very narrow profile in its favor.  It also has a remarkable resiliency and strength.  Yes, you can bend a playing card.  Yes you can tear it.  Have you ever tried grabbing it at either end and pulling it apart?  It's made of woven fibers and you'll find it quite strong.  It's a single unit and, with both forward speed and rotation in its favor, it can tear shit apart.  The difficult part of slicing something with a playing card isn't the slicing, it's making it move a long distance at speed, and that's been captured on film.  I speak as someone who has never bought and will never buy an x-man comic book.  

2)  Ryan Reynolds:  I honestly believe that he's a remarkably capable actor.  I saw only about five minutes of Amityville horror and he scared the crap out of me with the axe and all.  Hell, most of what he's done is comedy; think how hard it is to say what he's said with a straight face.  And then couple that with his role in Blade: Trinity*, the fact is that he can walk into a role and own it, no matter how good or absurd it may be, and then give it his own personal spin.  The dude makes it look easy.  Plus, he's gorgeous.  That's not unimportant.  Hell, I think it's the only reason for the success of Tom Cruise.

* Personally, I think the Blade movies are utter shit and Wesley Snipes is an execrable actor, but that doesn't change my impression of the various actors involved in the project.

Kris Kristofferson: old guy, should stick to country music.
Ron Pearlman:  should stick to fallout intros.
The Guy from Boondock Saints: Should stick to Boondock Saints.
The Guy who played "the dracula": should stick to underwear modelling or whatever.

Too much card throwing, not enough Oksana Baiul!

How, I wonder, will they show Deadpool's whole meta stuff. You know, how he talks to the readers in the comics, and interacts with his own narration and stuff? Like this:



Because that has become one of Deadpool's big things recently. And, it's funny, which is kind of the point of Deadpool.

I think Deadpool will just be a wise-ass and not a major, major character. If Marvel deems it necessary to give him his own movie, I think we'll see it more in line with his actual comics.

I remember reading this somewhere... no clue as to where, but apparently Avi Arad's (a producer who pretty much has nothing but comic book movie / shows under his belt, including Spider-man, all of the X-Men, Iron Man, and the upcoming Avengers, Wolverine, etc) son is a huge Deadpool fan, and has tried to get his dad to produce a Deadpool movie.

I kind of forgot how much I cared about the Wolverine character until I watched that trailer.  Man. I'm really hope this is as bitchin' as possible.

Also just quickly, some playing cards are laminated, and some are just straight up plastic.

Not to mention, the thing most of you seem to have forgotten.

Gambit doesn't just make cards go boom.  He charges them with kinetic energy, as well.  I'm pretty sure that a standard playing card imbued with the oomph of, say, your average baseball lobbed by a Major League pitcher, could more than pierce drywall.

I was the only one disagreeing about the drywall piercing of cards and I gave up, so like, who cares anymore.

Anyway, Ive been reading a fucktonne of comics and well, getting super in the mood for new comic based movies!

I think we've established that some kind of villain with mutant drywall abilities would be totally screwed if he went up against gambit.

Also, he'd probably be a successful small business owner.

Allow me to clarify this for you all.
The Wolverine movie is pure Hugh Jackman arm porn.

Most of the profit will be from teenage and early twenties women (and their mothers) going to this movie to stare at Hugh Jackman in a wife-beater for two and a half hours. <3

Which means: I am unreasonably excited about this film.

That and the girls who had little crushes on Wolverine from the comic. And because Hugh Jackman is hot.

That and X-Men is my 2nd favorite comic series. Batman and X-Men were always my favorites growing up, so the movies are fun!

I have a legitimate love for comic books and Wolverine. The fact that he is portrayed by a very, devilishly handsome Hugh Jackman is just an added bonus for my viewing pleasure.

I've a friend who went to see The Full Monty on Broadway at least half a dozen times because Hugh Jackman got naked at the end.
