DC Universe

Not only does Deadpool mention Superman, Green Lantern and Batman, but he asks Cable: “You’re so dark — are you sure you’re not from the DC Universe?”

Marvel Superheroes

Deadpool mentions Black Widow, Hawkeye, Thanos and Black Panther — in some form. Deadpool also tells a character, “The Sun is Getting Low,” a clear reference to The Hulk.

“John Wick”

In the opening credits, director David Leitch is described as “one of the guys who killed the dog in ‘John Wick.'” Leitch directed several scenes in the Keanu Reeves film.

In a state of utter sadness, Wade Wilson compares “Frozen” to Barbra Streisand’s 1983 film “Yentl.”

“Fox & Friends”

In the movie, Deadpool uses “Fox & Friends” as an insult.


Colossus does something that reminds the rest of the X-Force gang of the movie “RoboCop.”

“Harry Potter”

In the movie, the Merc with the Mouth makes a joke about the Sorting Hat from “Harry Potter.”

“The Human Centipede”

Which other Marvel character would openly (and happily) talk about the 2009 Dutch horror film “The Human Centipede” mid conversation.

“Cool Runnings”

Deadpool mentions “Cool Runnings” in a moment he talks about hitting rock bottom.


When Deadpool is speaking to Cable, he asks about the future and what “Sharknado” film we are on.


Dub-step and how much Cable seems to hate it gets mentioned throughout the film.

“The Proposition”

During a group scene, one of the X-Force members mentions the film, when another pipes up adding that it has a really good Guy Pearce performance.

“The Academy”

In a particular dramatic scene, Wade Wilson hopes “The Academy is watching.”
