'Deadpool 2': How Ryan Reynolds got Celine Dion

"We really wanted to distinguish the movie from Deadpool 1, and we felt like that was the most striking contrast", Reynolds joked.

The addition of Ryan Reynolds' name to the writing credits for "Deadpool 2" would have been a problem under other circumstances.

Ryan Reynolds has successfully dirtied the once-spotless superhero movie record with his sarcastic, vulgar projection of Deadpool onto the big screen - and now he and the film's writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are coming after another untarnished, beloved childhood favorite: board games.

Deadpool 2 opens this Friday at Century Cinemax, Oasis mall and Cinema Magic, Metroplex Naalya. Then again, all the trailers are showing me something that I kind of expect.


Cable (Josh Brolin) is a time-travelling, robotic-armed super-soldier who arrives from a post-apocalyptic future to assassinate a 14-year-old mutant (Julian Dennison) before he can grow up to become the fire-spewing psychopath who will kill his wife and child. For Ryan's sake and a cameo that would stun you, the movie should be definitely on your bucket list this weekend. The fight to save the kid and be a better human being is how we can sum up the entire movie for you. For those playing catch up, Wade Wilson (Reynolds) is a foul-mouthed, fourth wall breaking, wisecracking, anti-hero, mercenary also known as Deadpool. Our attention may be on Deadpool and his shenanigans most of the time, but Domino does occasionally steal the spotlight from him, especially during an exciting and fast-moving truck chase.

And then it turned out Deadpool 2, while not great, didn't suck the way the first one did. "This second film, man, I think they stuck the landing".


Given how many people turned out to buy tickets to the first one, Liefeld is confident they'll be back for "Deadpool 2" in a year when, as "Black Panther" and "Avengers: Infinity War" have shown with their own box office records, there's no end to fans' thirst for Marvel superhero movies. "This one, considering the buzz surrounding it, should do much better that its prequel", he said. In an attempt to protect a terrified and confused teenage mutant Russell, our red-suited hero makes an impulsive bloodthirsty decision, and this sets into motion events that catch the attention of the time-travelling mutant, Cable (Josh Brolin). Most of it is tiresome pop culture references, but when Deadpool 2 is amusing, it's really amusing.

Superhero films usually feature at least one casualty or two. Just because a movie ain't for me doesn't mean I'll lambast those who get what they desire. Part of the enjoyment of Deadpool comes from his knowledge of being inside of a movie with particular reference to Fox's long running X-Men franchise. "You absolutely need straight men to play off Deadpool", he told us.
