Today's Big Release: Ryan Reynold's Deadpool 2

Today's Big Release: Ryan Reynold's Deadpool 2

Thank you Marvel Studios for setting up Thanos in another universe!

- If you follow me on social media, remember my old radio, or just talk to me in general, you know that I hated the original Deadpool. It went on to earn over $783 million against a $58 million budget to become the overall highest-grossing R-rated film of all-time (as of 2016) and the highest-grossing X-Men film.

A sorta bad guy, Cable, wants to kill a kid.

These stars can f**king act! His body drops the jaw and his revenge mode gets you hooked on the movie. The highlight is the luck controlling Domino, played with sheer delight by Zazie Beetz.

The red suited superhero differs from the rest of the characters that make up Marvel universe due to his enthusiasm for flashy deaths and profanity. Stefan Kapicic's Colossus is another character who, without cracking any jokes, tickles your amusing bones and moves your heart.

The only negative comment I could possibly make about the sequel is that it didn't manage to work in a pack of sexually aggressive canines or Deadpool as a hot bartender.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Ryan Reynolds said that wife Blake Lively has made his life immeasurably better. Despite the movie taking digs at the Indo-American race, he nowhere brings in the stereotypical attitude in his acting. Basically, it had to do with several things including timing, some of the projects not being right, and the lack of black characters. His chemistry with Reynolds is impeccable. Just because a movie ain't for me doesn't mean I'll lambast those who get what they desire. No one saw that coming! The film pits Deadpool and Cable against each other for the most part.




Deadpool 2 drops audiences back in to the all too savvy shoes of its titular character as he struggles to find his place in the world, and maybe some kind of a family for him to belong to.

A still from Deadpool 2. A preview of which we already received with Celine Dion's Ashes that was released a few days ago. A real emotional beating heart to the film, that is unexpected in a comic book movie.

Where the original skewered superhero business, the sequel also skewers the idea of superhero team-ups in the humorous fashion you'd expect a Deadpool film to do.

Scoville told him the feeling was mutual, saying: "No man, your movies are unbelievable". We all have to know what each other's doing and then he'll go off and write it and then I'll go off and direct it.

P.S. Yes the movie has one of the best post credit scenes and you will hear yourself screaming from the top of your voice.

While the first film's director, Tim Miller, came from a visual effects background, Deadpool 2's David Leitch was a stunt coordinator and that's reflected early on. There are also plenty of pokes (most of the good-natured variety) at DC Comics, the X-Men franchise, and superheroes in general.

However, there are some aspects of Deadpool 2 that may jar with certain tastes.
