During the flick, Deadpool says "Maximum Effort" like 3 times... If this is a specific reference to anything, it has escaped me...

Any thoughts?

I think Tim Miller just liked the phrase. He even signs his autograph with "Maximum Effort" above.

At first I figured "maximum effort" was a reference to some fighting game I'd never played, but in that case one usage would have sufficed. Feels like it was probably a forced catch phrase 'cos the kids love 'em.

Was it in the original leaked script? I never read that.

There's also this from the soundtrack. 4TH wall break referencing his own soundtrack maybe?

I love the character Deadpool. The movie was awesome. Ryan Reynolds put a lot of effort to make this film a super-hit. Brianna Hildebrand also did a wonderful job being Negasonic Teenage Warhead. She has worn a yellow costume.

Found it!

Looks like it came from Deadpool #900, which came out about a year before the movie script leaked (and yes, the phrase was in the leaked script too).

Got a clip of the panel here:

(Also, hi again y'all! Been a while since I've been on the forum, but life's been busy.)
