Deadpool 2 (2018)
Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison
Directed By: David Leitch
It’s hard enough to come up with a good comic book movie sequel, let alone a comedy movie sequel, so the announcement that Deadpool would be a getting a number two, while unsurprising, was one that made me a little worried. The original film was a hilarious surprise, especially since I was becoming a little burnt out on the character in the comics. But amazingly, Deadpool 2 is able to surpass the comedy sequel curse and present a new adventure for the Merc with a Mouth that is equal parts hilarious, action-packed, and surprisingly moving too.

At long last, fans of the Merc With A Mouth have gotten their wish: Deadpool is on the big screen. Wade Wilson’s voyage to the silver screen has been a long one, and after his introduction in 2009’s god-awful X-Men Origins: Wolverine, many believed that a solo movie wouldn’t happen. And yet here we are, with a Deadpool movie that stars Ryan Reynolds, is rated R, and seemingly doing justice to the character. But now that the movie is out, was it worth all the trouble to make it?

Whoooo boy. What a week. Not only did we finally get confirmation on Benedict Cumberbatch playing Stephen Strange, we also got Kristen Ritter as our lead in Alias, Ryan Reynolds returning for Deadpool, and the entirety of the Suicide Squad, including Jared Leto as our new Clown Prince of Crime.
Of all of the casting news that hit last week, the biggest is probably the Suicide Squad one. Nothing against Marvel and their Doctor Strange casting, but Cumberbatch was all but confirmed about a month ago, with numerous outlets all but saying the deal was done. The same can be said about Ryan Reynolds’s signing on for Deadpool. Everyone pretty much assumed those two were playing those parts, so when the news was confirmed the other day it was exciting, but not as surprising as the news regarding the Suicide Squad cast.

After a five-year wait, Deadpool is finally getting his own movie. Yes, the only good thing to come out of X-Men Origins: Wolverine (well, in the first ten minutes) is getting his moment to shine, and the most surprising thing about it is that Ryan Reynolds is still attached to star in it.
Well, actually, it’s not that surprising. After Green Lantern failed to ignite the DC universe on screen and R.I.P.D. absolutely crashed and burned last summer, Ryan Reynolds needs Wade Wilson way more than Wade needs him. But it’s perfect casting. Reynolds’s snark and sense of humor is a perfect fit for Deadpool, and if the test footage is to be believed, we’re in for one hell of a good time in 2016.
