Witness the beginning of a happy ending. Welcome to the now remodeled Dateline Movies. Surprised? Don't be. These two delayed my special post, so now, this blog has a new owner, and that is, me! After the spectacular letdown my studio handed over a silver platter, that is X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the comicbook killer 20th Century Fox made the right call by rebooting me, and finally a no-holds barred film that is strictly for the grown-ups. For the little kiddies, ask your parents' permission before being scarred for the rest of your childhood. Now, without further ado, here's the green band trailer of my very own film, because Google doesn't pay these two enough to send a link for a red band version.

What we saw in the trailers (plus the Red Band)?

Wade Wilson, that's me, played by Reynolds (Buried), is suffering and not feeling very well, and he is very desperate for a cure. If I can't find any form of salvation, I'll be leaving a great life behind, and my super hot girlfriend Vanessa, played by Baccarin (Gotham).

One day, I was recruited into a secret government project headed by Jason Statham's rip-off scientist Francis, played by Skrein (The Transporter Refueled) promising that I will be able to have some grab-bag of awesome load of powers. Unfortunately, with great power comes great irresponsibility as Francis, or Ajax, as he wants to be called, left me for dead. Now, with two slightly recognizable X-Men, namely Colossus, played by Tricoteux (Continuum) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, played by Hildebrand (Prism), my geeky BFF Weasel, played by Miller (Silicon Valley) and my mother figure Blind Al, played by Uggams (Poor Pretty Eddie), the one, the only Deadpool must hunt down the creepy stereotypical mad scientist who's definitely not General Stryker from X2, while being chased down by said person's hench woman Angel Dust, played by Carano (Almost Human).

Spotted!: Hidden Surprises and Trivia (Spoiler Alert!)
Source 1, Source 2, Source 3, Source 4

1. It's Not Easy Being Green: For the most important part of this post (because this wouldn't be called Spotted! for nothing). The guy playing as me Mr. Reynolds has had a series of ups and downs in the filming industry, and our archenemy DC Comics's unfaithful and lackluster attempt at beginning a shared film universe was one of his lowest points. Ryan here even criticized the film, being the comicbook fan that he is. That's nice! To even show how much he hated the said movie, especially the CGI costume, I said a joke made especially for him. "Please don't make my supersuit green, or animated!" Top that DC!

2. Weapon X of Mass Destruction: It has been confirmed by my bosses that my film will be a part of the ever expanding X-Verse. To bridge this film to the rest of the already released films, the Recruiter, an agent of the organization that made the Wolverine, will be introduced here, just to signify continuity. You might remember this guy, Jed Rees, from Galaxy Quest. Wait, since Weapon X will give me powers, who else might I see in their super secret lab? Wolverine? Omega Red? Magneto? Stryker?

3. Look Before You Drive: I got to give credit to my creators for making me famous, even though I was just a cooler pastiche of DC's Deathstroke. To pay tribute to one of my metaphorical fathers, the other being Rob Liefeld, I was able to insert Fabian Nicieza in a highway sign. During that epic highway scene, you might notice that the street names could look familiar with comicbook readers. It says "Nicieza St." and "Fabian Rd." in the screenshot above. Also, to the left, you can see a signage saying "Miller Street", a not-so sneeky reference to this film's director, Tim Miller.

4. There Was A "Leak": The very reason this film exists is because of my good 'ol buddy Ryan's efforts to "leak" the greatest proof of concept I have ever seen, because it has me in it. Apparently, my colleagues at Fox were wowed by the popular demand from the fans that they green-lit the project. If you might notice there are plenty of references. Comment below if you can notice any of them.

Dad: Hey Pio, do you have the keys to the house?

Me: I thought you have them.

Whoops, I guess it's time to make my way out of here. You wouldn't think that I'd really kill these two huh? Anyway, come see my movie next year on February 12, 2016. Hopefully, it'll be the best Valentine's Day you could have.


Me: Hey, we must have left the computer open, and apparently someone filled in a post?

Dad: It's probably your mom.

Me: At least we have completed our 100th post, and our 10th Spotted! entry. Better say something, I guess.

Dad: Well, from all of us here in Dateline Movies, thank you guys so much! We wouldn't have 100 posts if it weren't for you guys.

Me: Make that 102, we delayed this post because of the new batch of Emerging Influential Blogs. Also, thanks guys for landing my sister in 7th place, and thank you Ms. Janette Toral for my price at the raffle at the awarding ceremonies, which unfortunately I was not able to attend!

Dad: Now with Spotted! Part 10 over, what's next?

Me: Who knows, but we'll just keep on writing. Adios amigos!
