Ryan Reynolds saves day, and movie, in Deadpool 2

It wasn't amusing or subversive. "It had more to do with Disney, and they made me take it out". Striking the same tone as the first Deadpool, this 2018 sequel not only lives up to the original but is actually a more entertaining film than its predecessor.

Be sure to check out Deadpool 2, in theaters everywhere this weekend!

First, there's the issue of the character's arc having been more or less completed in the first picture, when Wade Wilson got both an origin story and a happy ending with his beloved Vanessa (Morena Baccarin). This just goes to show how much was riding on the Merc with a Mouth's first sequel and I can safely say on behalf of myself, and my mother, that it definitely delivers!

"I just wanna work with Drew", Reynolds said.

But Leitch's action sometimes feels saddled and uninspired, and Reese and Wernick's screenplay is basically a reimagining of a truly excellent time-travel flick from a few years back (that will remain nameless to avoid spoilers).

The story starts with a bang with a distraught Deadpool trying to kill himself. Deadpool the clown is back in a major way. I won't tell you how for fear of spoiling something you should have a pretty good idea is going to happen.

Then we have a young mutant, Russell Collins/Firefist - who is being hunted by Cable. Those fight sequences, when it comes to him, we would rehearse these fight sequences and then we'd show up and he'd be like, 'Why don't you change that?

Stephen Amell Announces 'Arrow' And 'Batwoman' Crossover, Twitter Reacts
Batwoman's involvement in the Arrowverse will be featured in the next big crossover event housed on the network. Kate Kane has been involved with the Batman Family, Batman Incorporated, and the Female Furies.

He was convinced to sign on for Deadpool 2 after an unexpected inspiration - seeing his co-star Ryan Reynolds in the 2009 romantic comedy The Proposal, in which he stars opposite Sandra Bullock. I do see him as being a part of X-Force, obviously.

The movie also isn't without its problems structurally. Firstly, because I wanted Nathan Fillion to portray this role, and secondly, because Brolin had just portrayed a character as iconic as Thanos in another Marvel tentpole, and watching the same actor play two different comic book characters from the same universe in such a short span of time was a little hard to wrap my head around.

Yes, in his latest TV spot to promote is second big screen adventure Mr.Pool takes no prisoners and completely BURNS the entire MCU, Ryan Reynolds' career, and just about everyone else he can. Like, he's the kind of guy your mom thinks is amusing because "he's got a cute personality". To do this, Deadpool will form the X-Force, consisting of badass Domino (Zazie Beetz), plus a number of others who are...less bad ass. So, she's at least cool, right? I will say that it is a string of pop culture references, but the way it is handled is so amusing that I did leave the theater with a smile on my face.

Yes, this film is rated R for a reason. They are not supposed to be there. The devoted will be pleased to hear that, and for them I offer my humble blessings and genuine joy at their impending pleasure.

The previous paragraph was mainly aimed at the two families I saw walking out of my screening with what appeared to be ten year old boys.

But what would Deadpool think of the movie?

I loved this movie with all of my twisted heart. I would love to see him in a team-up sort of thing, like a mano a mano or a great female character from the X-Men universe.
