Deadpool is definitely one of those characters who has gained a lot of popularity over the years due to his unique attitude and his undeniable connection with whoever opens up his comic books. The Merc With The Mouth, as he has appropriately been dubbed, is one of the few Marvel characters who pushes the limits regarding what can be viewed as a normal relationship to both themselves and the world that surrounds them (especially considering that he breaks the fourth wall more than he abides by it). This is all because his mental state is in constant flux due to the internal battle between his cancer and regenerative healing factor.
Sure, some people, especially those who he ends up teaming up with, may call him annoying because he can't seem to stop talking, but words are one of his strongest weapons. Wade Wilson simply would not be the same without them. His words shape his personal reality, as well as dictate his dynamic between both the narrator of his comics, himself, as well as with those reading them (which means that absolutely anything is possible). His ability to break the fourth wall, and the metaphoric boundary that separates his world from ours, is what makes him so lovable. So, what are some of his best fourth wall breaking moments? Read on to find out.

1 The Deadpool Movie's Opening Scene
There are so many reasons as to why this will probably be the most memorable time that Deadpool broke the fourth wall but, let's face it, you probably don't have all day. One of the main reasons why this is so is because part of this scene appeared in the movie trailers as well as all over social media so it served as a punchy introduction to his character - for those who may not have been familiar with him otherwise. Also, how often do you come across a film where he's talking to you from the very beginning? Answer: Never. The way that Ryan Reynolds introduced the film and its plot by simply talking it through can only be described as being typical Deadpool fashion.
