Ryan Reynolds is back as the foul-mouthed superhero Deadpool in Deadpool 2. The first film of the franchise was hilarious and if the trailers of Deadpool 2 are anything to go by, it looks like this will be even better. Along with Ryan Reynolds, this film also stars Josh Brolin, who plays the villain Cable. We recently saw Brolin as Thanos in Avengers Infinity War and fans are certainly waiting to see him in a non-purple avatar. In Deadpool 2, we will see Wade assembling his X-Force and from what we can comprehend, this ensemble will surely make for an entertaining movie. Deadpool has turned into a franchise and deservedly so. With references from real life rivalries to Wade just being mean because he can be, Deadpool 2 is going to be a laugh riot for the moviegoers.
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 hits the theaters today and in a time when fantasy and superhero films are raking big moolah at the box office, Deadpool 2 looks like a winner.
“Ryan Reynolds is an incredible comedic talent and Deadpool works as a perfect ground for things he really excels at. He took that character from the comic books and made it his own brand. There’s a synergistic effect with Deadpool and Ryan. He really is Deadpool in real life – in terms of the way he talks and sees the world, sometimes. He’s funny and irreverent but also has a huge heart and compassion like Deadpool,” said David Leitch.
Deadpool 2 is directed by David Leitch, who has helmed films like John Wick and Atomic Blonde.
Talking about Deadpool 2, Leitch said, “I’ve had the honor and privilege to help create a couple of different cool universes, but there’s something that’s undeniably fascinating about the Deadpool universe – it re-imagined the action-comedy. The original was so special, and the world itself seems to be so expansive that you could have a creative voice and still be true to the original.”
It is all too confusing in the beginning, and much too smart at times — again — for its own good. But as Ryan Reynolds gets other people to match his wits against, Deadpool 2 starts hitting the spots it wants too, much more effortlessly than its prequel.
The official synopsis of Deadpool 2 reads, “After surviving a near-fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.”
