For Every Lame X-Men: Wolverine Movie, There Is an Awesome Cake – Geeky Cake of the Week

The early reviews for X-Men Origins: Wolverine are in, and all signs point to “ragingly mediocre.”  But what did you expect from a movie that makes Deadpool–arguably the most insidiously-hilarious character in the Marvel Universe–a mute?

What a waste of Ryan Reynolds’ wit and comedic timing. Why undermine an actor’s best assets like that?  It’d be like using CGI effects to remove Salma Hayek’s boobs. There’s only so much I’m willing to pay to hear her cute little accent, you know?

Anyway.  Leprous movie or no, I suspect Wolverine will continue to be one of Marvel’s most popular characters… in no small part thanks to his shiny metal claws that go “snkt!”

So, well played, Joy, who arranged for ShireBound Cake Company in Birmingham, Alabama to make this X-Men Wolverine cake for Matt’s 25th birthday.

    Ah but if you saw one of the secret endings, it clarifies that whole mess. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see that ending last night.
    Ryan Reynolds is way underused in this movie. But then again, it was the Wolvie show so I guess I shouldn’t expect to see any other characters for very long :/

    not for nothing, but they used a different actor for the role of “deadpool” in this movie. Ryan Reynolds only plays as Wade Wilson.

    i put “deadpool” in quotes due to the fact that i refuse to acknowledge the “deadpool” in this movie as a real deadpool.
