    Default Deadpool 2

    So, who here has seen it? I saw it last night and enjoyed it. Here's my spoiler-free review.

    What Worked: The same irreverent, obscene humor that has always characterized the Merc with the Mouth. It made me laugh out loud quite often, and the mid-credits scenes were just as funny. I have to give props to the supporting cast, especially Colossus and TJ Miller as Weasel. It also brought in some of the more obscure mutants (and a guy named Peter) who would otherwise never appear in any film.

    What Didn't: I don't think there was any aspect that DIDN'T work, but sequels like this have big shoes to fill. Guardians of the Galaxy was such a wonderful, weird movie because nothing like that had ever been attempted before. GotG2 kept that same formula but felt more like a retread at times. Deadpool 2 was hilariously violent but it just didn't have the same impact as the original.

    WTF: I hate dubstep and they brought it back.

    Final Grade: B+

    So in the future Deadpool would be crossed with X-Men?? I thought he was also part of Avenger one time?

    Your summary is very accurate, I saw it yesterday. I wanted to see this one in theaters because I missed the last one, but ultimately I'd say wait for the amazon rental for $3.99. good movie, but maybe not worth the money unless you just like seeing your movies in theaters. Some of the humor was predictable or too drawn out for a mediocre joke, but other than some of these jokes killing tension, it was great

    The scene where the X-force jumped out of the airplane was hilarious

    More like an Avengers affiliate. Deadpool was part of the Astonishing Avengers, which was a group cobbled together during an emergency.

    I'm not sure if Deadpool will end up in an X-Men film. I'm sure that Fox and Disney lawyers are fighting over that as we speak.

    Saw it, thought it was pretty funny.

    Only thing i did not like was TJ Miller, never thought he was funny, prolonged descriptions of something just do nothintg for me. But he's not gonna be back for a third so whatevs.

    So, why was "Firefist" so important? Did he eat a supernova?

    Na Deadpool's history sounds really complicated.

    Last time I have read they were planning to do X-Men/Deadpool rotation.

    Ryan Reynolds said he wasn't to keen on making a third one since the character works best when he has nothing and is down on his luck or something to that extent, and kicking him down a peg again would just become boring. He mentioned he was more into the idea of having him be a recurring character in X-men centric movies like X-Force.


    Then again the studio likes money so who knows.
