  • DeadPool 2 Movie Review & Ratings Audience Response Live Updates Hit or Flop

In terms of a post-credits scene that leaves the audience on a high note, Deadpool 2 arguably takes the cake. These problems are largely surrounding some of the movie's new characters.

Sprawled out on his back, Ryan Reynolds' foul-mouthed, masked anti-hero, Deadpool, has a bone to pick.

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. At its bullet-ridden heart, Deadpool 2 is a sweet (at times, mushy) film, complete with charred teddy-bears and lonely kids in an orphanage.

Everything you loved about Deadpool is alive and well. Nearly everything you either loved or gritted at in the original is here expanded, refined, sometimes even invigorated. If you like your favourite Wolverine-bashing, bad-guy-slashing, raunchy superhero with moments of genuine tenderness in his cancer-ridden face, then Reynolds has you covered. It's also filled with crass humor and language. In fact, no such rooms existed - the word referred to exit passageways in Roman stadia - but the myth persists, and provides a helpful image for understanding the appeal of Deadpool. And did you love the meta humor? Not every one of them lands with grace, but when they do, you just don't stop cackling!

Deadpool 2's other cast members, including Zazie Beetz who plays Domino, were also pictured at the event.

The Los Angeles Times is more negative, writing that it "feels too much like more of the same: More of the same gross-out gags, more of the same irreverent jokes, more bits where Deadpool has to regrow severed limbs to the disgust of everyone around him, more running commentary on the movie he's in".

That's all you're getting for now. "Actually, for [screenwriters] Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and myself-we've been friends for 10 years, and in that time we all acquired families and sort of grown up a little bit".

Back home in the apartment he shares with his fiance, Vanessa (Morena Baccarin of "Gotham"), she and Wade talk of starting a family.

Deadpool 2 is released in United Kingdom cinemas on May 15. "So, I don't know, I would assume that it's just gonna be business as usual, but fuck if I know". While many people have expressed their opinions, actor Ryan Reynolds believes Deadpool and X-Force will be unscathed by any such agreement. He is here to make you laugh.

Meanwhile, Brolin is by-the-numbers but enjoyable as Cable. A good idea in theory, if Deadpool had any leadership skills. The box office payoff, however, was staggering, meaning that the key dilemma facing Deadpool 2 is how to reconcile the financial imperative to stay at the forefront of the comic movie wave with the creative need to remain just outside it, pointing and giggling. Something that's hovering over anyone that wants to comment on a Deadpool 3 and an X-Force movie it's unclear how Disney plans to proceed with Fox's X-Men-related films once their acquisition of the studio is complete. Officially "Deadpool" included in the universe of "X-Men". The most memorable member of the squad is Domino, played by Zazie Beetz, who benefits from a mutant strain of luck that allows her to emerge from any unsafe situation unscathed. The big difference is the character growth. Much to Deadpool's disbelief - and downright annoyance - her super power seems to be luck. There are tonnes of unexpected surprises and cameos, so make sure you don't turn your eyes away from the screen even for a minute. Can't bring up your own inherent issues?
