* StillbornFranchise: Played straight, but eventually subverted. This movie was intended to be the first installment of an ''X-Men Origins'' film series [[{{Spinoff}} spun off]] from Fox's ''Film/XMen'' films, to be followed by ''X-Men Origins: Magneto'', ''X-Men Origins: Deadpool'', and ''X-Men Origins: Gambit''. After disappointing reviews for ''Wolverine'', the ''Magneto'' script was eventually incorporated into the much better-received ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' and the ''X-Men Origins'' series was scrapped. Years later, Fox would put resources into making ''Film/{{Deadpool|2016}}'' and ''Gambit'' movies, but without any actual connection to this film.

** Director Gavin Hood [[http://www.indiewire.com/article/gavin-hood-x-men-origins-wolverine-eye-in-the-sky-20160308 has even more regrets]], given ExecutiveMeddling neutered what he and Jackman wanted and took control from his hands. [[http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Why-Deadpool-Worked-Better-Time-According-Guy-Who-Directed-Him-Last-Time-122707.html Deadpool is also in his criticisms]], particularly as the character is tailor-made for an R-rating.



* TroubledProduction: The film was delayed by weather and Creator/HughJackman's commitments with ''Film/{{Australia}}'', begun with an unfinished screenplay--director Gavin Hood detailed that during shooting in Australia, script pages would be sent from LA, at times in the night prior to them being filmed--and saw director Gavin Hood entering conflicts with studio 20th Century Fox, with Richard Donner (husband of producer Lauren Shuler Donner) being forced to join production to mellow out things. And an incomplete version with missing special effects leaked online one month before the film's premiere.

* ContractualImmortality: It ''is'' a prequel, after all. For that matter, ForegoneConclusion and DoomedByCanon (or should it be "Blessed"?).

** Hugh Jackman himself [[http://insidemovies.ew.com/2013/06/01/hugh-jackman-first-wolverine/ expressed regret over this film]], admitting it fell short of his expectations. Subsequently he and the rest of the crew sought to do a better job with ''The Wolverine''.
** Ryan Reynolds [[https://twitter.com/VancityReynolds/status/593754770113835008 is in on the "Barakapool" hate as well]].
** 20th Century Fox seems to regret the movie too, given that it allowed the many, ''many'' potshots against it in the promos for ''Film/{{Deadpool}}''.

** The Fox executives decided that it would be a '''brilliant''' idea to take {{Deadpool}}, the Merc with the Mouth and possibly one of the most popular characters appearing in the movie, introduce him and then remove him quickly, and then ''sew his mouth shut''. Because he would be too entertaining and take attention away from Wolverine or something (no-one knows the exact reason).

* FanNickname: The version of Deadpool appearing in the film has gained a few, mostly related to how he is really nothing like the Deadpool from the comics. The most popular appears to be DINO (SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} InNameOnly). He's also referred to as "Dudepeel" by {{Imageboards}}, "Cesspool", "[[Franchise/MortalKombat Barakapool]]" (because of the swords in the arms) and probably others.
