How 'Deadpool 2' Referenced Every Superhero Franchise From Marvel to DC

Deadpool in Marvel Strike Force

In less than two days, fans lucky enough to snag Thursday night tickets will finally be seeing Deadpool 2, the much-anticipated sequel starring everyone's favorite fourth wall-breaking, chimichanga-loving mutant mercenary. Reynolds' superhero is that savage friend that consistently yells sick burns at everyone while the audience goes, "Nice".

"Please guys, no one stand up", the actor said in character.

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. And that is just one of the reasons to love Deadpool 2, 119 uncensored (yes folks, it's here in its entirety) minutes of sheer entertainment, albeit of the gory/colourful language variety. "It may not be as naughty as it thinks it is, or subversive in any real sense, but it does jettison many unwelcome now-standard attributes of superhero films that became convention nearly without us even noticing", he said. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone agreed, describing the movie as a "a grab-bag of humor, sorrow, sensation and silliness" that "throws everything it has at you until you throw your arms up in happy surrender".

It still has this kind of down and dirty feel, which I love, but it also has so many elements that I think are going to blow audiences away and surprise people.

A new Deadpool 2 clip has surfaced online featuring Ryan Reynolds arriving at a tense stand-off as the Merc with a Mouth alongside the X-Men. It is a darker movie than the last one, at times asking you to take things seriously.

Jackman gets a special mention in the credits for use of his likeness, which can also be seen on a box of Wolverine cereal and on a slightly grisly music box that Deadpool uses to open the film. The core of Deadpool 2 really is an emotional one, with themes of family and heroism for Wade Wilson, and more layers being peeled back on some of the characters from the first film giving them more depth.

"That's a different Fox", Colbert told Deadpool.

Colbert says he already has a guest, so Deadpool takes over his monologue instead.

And yes, they are both Canadians, Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds.

The laughs come thick and fast, the action is everything you would expect from a Marvel movie with several quality set pieces, yet at the heart of the movie it retains a tale of a superhero facing loss, questioning his motives and his own mortality. "It's Trump's biggest pulling out blunder since Eric".
