The'Deadpool star couldn't help but gush about his wife Blake Lively and says it

It's a silly-as-hell comic book movie about a character constantly making jokes while stabbing people with swords. "We got to make this outrageous, boundary-pushing family film through the eyes of Deadpool which was a blast". He is also killing off all the bad guys in the world, and one such mission ends up in a tragedy for him. Then there's the film's kind-of-villain, Cable (Josh Brolin). "We don't care what her powers are, it's gonna be amusing". Well, rejoice, for Deadpool 2 meets most of the expectations, save for going bigger (let's talk about that later). No spoilers here, but there is a layered structure in the narrative here that was missing in the original. And you know what? So, plot wise, yeah, the sequel is miles better. "I see it being a real ensemble on a lot of levels, just because I think it's interesting for Deadpool to kinda function in the way he does in his own universe", Reynolds said. There are so many of them! Because even in the narrow prism of superhero tentpoles, Deadpool 2 refreshingly shouts, with four-letter words aplenty, that there is more to cinema than one-size-fits-all blockbuster boilerplate. Because of Leitch's stunt background, he's been able to stage truly stunning action sequences in flicks like John Wick and Atomic Blonde, and he transfers that over to Deadpool 2.

Deadpool escapes and decides to pursue redemption by rescuing Randall with his newly assembled X-Force, a posse of simpatico superheroes who are "tough, morally flexible, and young enough to carry this franchise another 10 to 12 years".

Did you expect to be called for the sequel? It's actually a fair bit better - funnier, more inventive. and more consistent in its chosen tone and style: "ultraviolent screwball comedy". That means we get more time to do each scene.

After all, what's more Deadpool than someone executing themselves, as played by them, while also talking to the audience as a separate character?

Deadpool realises he'll need some help defeating this nemesis and assembles a not-so-crack-team he dubs X-Force ("Isn't that a little derivative"?, one of his recruits asks.) The stand-out newbie is Domino, played with effortless charm by Atlanta star Zazie Beetz, a mutant whose power is luck and looks much more impressive on the screen than that sounds. She later got revenge on her hubby, posting a pic of Ryan Gosling in October 2017 with Reynolds' face cropped out and the caption, "Happy birthday, baby!" Reynolds has harnessed his comical energies so freaking awesome, but it is the emotional beat to his performance that makes his character such a charmer.

While we're on the topic of nice fits, if you've never seen the acclaimed FX series "Atlanta", you might be surprised how much Beetz adds to the mix. Julian Dennison is talented. The scenes with Russell and Wade going to prison are made funnier by his various lines. But the scope and the scale sadly remains the same.

At that moment, the camera cuts to a room directly to Deadpool's right that he's not looking at, full of the current X-Men cast including James McAvoy's Professor X, Evan Peters' Quicksilver, Nicholas Hoult's Beast and Tye Sheridan's Cyclops among others, before the group quietly close the door on Deadpool's tantrum.
