Cable: Who are you? Wade Wilson: I’m Batman.
Possibly one of the best adult superhero movies out there. With a budget of $110 million, it made a successful profit of $743.9 million at the box office. The direct sequel to the 2016 movie, this one had about double the budget of the first one. Ryan Reynolds returns to playing Deadpool while new actor to the series and superhero movies as a whole, Josh Brolin plays cable. This talented actor is normally known for other kinds of movies also plays the ultimate Marvel villain, Thanos.
The sequel was announced three days before the release of Deadpool in 2016. Deadpool/Wade and Cable are the only characters who seem to be able to break the 4th wall in the live-action Marvel movies. Josh Brolin signed a four-film deal to play Cable. This film contains many cameo appearances from X-Men and one impressive one that is involved during the end of the film.
So many pop culture references, great timing with comedy and a lot of action. Everything that Deadpool 2 represents is involved in this movie. Plus, so much external factors were involved with this movie before and after. There was even a fan petition was made for Quentin Tarantino to direct this sequel. One of the most fun superhero movies out there and Ryan Reynolds is the perfect person to play Deadpool. The ending has a big action scene and is a fitting ending to the story of the film. I recommend this film to all fans of the one and only Deadpool.
Cable: You’re not a fuckin’ hero. You’re just an annoying clown dressed up as a sex toy.
