Mischievous anti-hero Deadpool returns in his second fun, bawdy film

Deadpool in Marvel Strike Force

Over the last few weeks, Ryan Reynolds has been doing some very amusing things to promote the film, including dissing Australia and singing on Korean TV in a unicorn mask but today, he's revealed that filming Deadpool 2 wasn't always amusing for everyone.

Ryan Reynolds has successfully dirtied the once-spotless superhero movie record with his sarcastic, vulgar projection of Deadpool onto the big screen - and now he and the film's writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are coming after another untarnished, beloved childhood favorite: board games. Those wanting a more serious X-Men epic will have to wait till next year, when "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" and "The New Mutants" are both due out.

After Avengers: Infinity War, it's now Ryan Reynold starrer Deadpool 2 set to take the box office by a storm. "I never thought I'd be directing him".

Pitt nearly played an even larger role in the sequel: Cable, the time-traveling robot assassin.

"Deadpool 2" is as violent as the first, but perhaps the biggest victim is the very concept of superhero movies.

That's what Deadpool 2 essentially is, in terms of story.

I don't think I would have hated it so much if the only people telling me it was the funniest movie they had ever seen were the same people that think Happy Gilmore is wonderful. No spoilers here, but there is a layered structure in the narrative here that was missing in the original. For one, the plot and the way it progresses is straightforward; it borrows from Rian Johnson's 2012 sci-fi thriller Looper, which executed it better.

- 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. There are so many of them! Would you like to see a third one? Deadpool 2 begins with a huge dig on Logan with a bit of foreshadowing and later followed by a truly amusing credits sequence.

Then he haded Reynolds the actual report, adding: "Can you take a look at that?" And, as a Marvel property, he especially delights in lampooning D.C. Comics.

Directed by David Leitch, who helmed "Atomic Blonde" previous year, the whole thing feels weightless, a series of comedy sketches peppered with a few fun cameos, but there's nothing with any real physical or even emotional heft.

The opening credits are laugh-out-loud amusing and the only thing better may be the closing credits sequence, which is an instant classic. This is a film that completely earns its hard "R" rating.

However, as we know the actor forms just one half of the supportive duo, with Lively attending the premiere on the arm of her husband dressed in a red and black Deadpool-inspired ensemble complete with a matching manicure.

The cast is fantastic, with Ryan Reynolds and Zazie Beetz being the better of the lot. He makes his character acceptable and amusing. If you really want to drop someone with words it has to be more personal and that's part of the fun of this insult contest. It's at this point Cable (Josh Brolin), a shovel-jawed time traveller from the future with a mechanical arm shows up with a bone to pick with Russell, whom Deadpool feels rather protective towards, and so all hell breaks loose. Julian Dennison is talented.
