The New DEADPOOL Issue Just Revealed That Wade Wilson Is A Huge CHAINSAW MAN Fan The New DEADPOOL Issue Just Revealed That Wade Wilson Is A Huge CHAINSAW MAN Fan

The latest Deadpool comic from Marvel, which debuted yesterday, has the internet in a frenzy due to a nice nod to Tatsuki Fujimoto's Chainsaw Man.

Marvel Comics writer Cody Ziglar appears to be an avid anime/manga fan, as seen by his insane allusion to Tatsuki Fujimoto's Chainsaw Man in yesterday's Deadpool (2024) #1 debut issue.

Wade Wilson asks a villain in the comic book whether they like Chainsaw Man before a massive Deadpool dog symbiote attacks the adversary.

This is a reference to the Fox Devil-affiliated character Aki Hayakawa from Chainsaw Man. In the Bat Devil arc, Hayakawa uses his fingers to form a fox in order to call out the Fox Devil, who then materializes and chomps the head off of the Leech Devil, saving the main character of the series, Denji.

Below, you can check out a [NSFW] scene from Studio MAPPA's anime adaptation of the manga and see how closely yesterday's Deadpool comic mirrors the scene.

Deadpool Chainsaw Man reference

Fujimoto appears to be a fan of Marvel, having previously shared a 'unique' take on Captain America.

About Chainsaw Man: Synopsis: Denji’s a poor young man who’ll do anything for money, even hunting down devils with his pet devil Pochita. He’s a simple man with simple dreams, drowning under a mountain of debt. But his sad life gets turned upside down one day when he’s betrayed by someone he trusts. Now with the power of a devil inside him, Denji’s become a whole new man—Chainsaw Man!

Tatsuki Fujimoto started serializing Chainsaw Man in the pages of Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump manga magazine in December 2018. The series concluded in December 2020 before Fujimoto began a sequel series in July 2022. To date, 17 volumes of the series have been released.

During the Fall 2022 anime season, Studio MAPPA debuted a Chainsaw Man TV anime, which consists of 12 episodes. While a second season has yet to be announced, an anime film titled Chainsaw Man – The Movie: Reze Arc was recently announced which will pick up from where the anime left off.

If you can't wait for the anime film, the 12-episode anime adaptation covered the first 5 volumes of the manga.

Someone needs to learn the difference between "massive fan" and "guy who makes a reference".

@Origame - it is analogous to "marvel learning from mistakes" or "marvel is back" with just xmen 97 out 😂
Origame - 4/4/2024, 11:22 AM
@vectorsigma - not even the full episode count. They were saying that after two episodes dropped. 🤣

@Origame - Well that's like the difference between journalism...and whatever this site chooses to do.
vectorsigma - 4/4/2024, 12:13 PM
@Origame - yeah, lol. It is ok to be happy about the good episodes, but claiming this is too much

Tbf though im enjoying it too. But just imagine if the later episodes become s5 levels of bad. Let's see

LOL, now Josh turned off comments for his 3rd (4th?) Dylan Baker interview article.

@TheFinestSmack - I'm not clicking on those or the list's my prerogative. Let him do what he wants to do. The sites more about the discussion than the news, so it's funny comments are turned off for some of the dumpster fires created. Just cut the check and own it.

@The1st - "The sites more about the discussion than the news". Contributors to this site have said that's not actually the case, and actuall commentors are like 5% of the site actual traffic. So it's more about discussion for you, but not the site itself

@The1st - it's so funny to me that people think there isn't a large contingent of people who visit this site that don't set up an account to post. I would read the articles on this site foralmost 10 years before I decided to make an account and post. You know most people can't be bothered to do that right. You really think this site exists for the 25 same people who post on every story?

@SATW42 - I think you're entitled to your opinion...and we can agree to disagree about the news. I don't keep up with who sets up an account and when. The articles largely aren't worth reading imo opinion usually, so I come to see what the discussion is. Sometimes it's interesting, sometimes the bar is real low. Sometimes an article has info of interest for me, depending on the topic. Sometimes I just read an article that has pertinent info to me I didn't already know, and avoid the comments altogether. Sometimes I don't have a response at all. You seem somewhat passionate about this, but I'm generally indifferent unless a comment elicits a response. I'm just not gaining much from a list or article where 90% of the article is regurgitated info or seemingly bait. Maybe I should just say everything is cool an post a pic. I mean, it's not that serious at the end of the day. So to answer your question no, I don't, but it's interesting that's your question...

I appreciate these stories, I love chainsaw man and I never would've known this reference was made if not for this article.

You guys can always just not open an article you aren't interested in. Miserable [frick]ing [foo foo]s, the lot of ya

Chainsaw Man is better than anything marvel has published in decades and the idiots running them would try to cancel anyone who dared write anything like it.

Deadpool also mentions ghostbusters does it mean he’s ghostbuster fan?
SATW42 - 4/4/2024, 1:44 PM
@dragon316 - probably, yeah
