Deadpool 2 review: still the ideal antidote to superhero fatigue

Deadpool's first outing was as brilliant as it was shocking, delivering crude humour, gory action, and the kind of fourth-wall breaking humour that the Merc With A Mouth is famous for.

Leaks from early screenings of Deadpool 2 have revealed the five end credit scenes plus one that made preview audiences so uncomfortable it was dropped.

When life as an X-Man doesn't quite mesh, Deadpool goes about forming X-Force - a name he admits is derivative - with a bunch of nobodies including a powerless character portrayed by comedian Rob Delaney ("Catastrophe").

China's Sichuan Airlines Pilot Half-Sucked Out of Airplane After Windshield Cracks
The CAA said the windshield showed no signs of malfunction that required any maintenance prior to the incident. A quick-thinking flight attendant grabbed Lancaster's legs as he was flying out the window and held on.

But, Wade Wilson doesn't stop there. Fox's superhero franchises still have the PG-13 air of legitimacy to them, which means they're about as open to tossing Deadpool into the mix as they are a drunk Roger Rabbit. Did you love the violence? 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. Did you love the crass humor? Kevin Feige is a brilliant man who has successfully built something unparalleled in moviemaking, but within his system it is hard for a film with as much personality as Deadpool 2 to be created.

While Deadpool 2 is tremendously entertaining, it has multiple issues.

Deadpool 2 has the unenviable challenge of following up the movie industry's bigstory of 2016, which turned a (relatively) meager $58 million-budget into a $783 million global phenomenon. While some of these barbs may raise a smirk, for the most part they feel forced and already a little dated. Even then they'd nearly assuredly have to pull back on Deadpool's throttle-not to bring him in line with the severity of the other heroes, but at least to get him on the same tonal playing field. The wise-cracking anti-hero and his girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) are living in blissful domesticity and have chose to start a family when a tragedy tears them apart. The two plan on having a baby with Wade lamenting whether he'll make a good father. Fans wonder if the characters will be just as fresh and fun the second time around, if another story will be equally as amusing, and, in the case of Deadpool 2, if Ryan Reynolds' leather-clad anti-hero will be as raunchy and rambunctious as everyone remembers.

Acclaimed author Tom Wolfe dead at 87
At the same time, Wolfe continued to turn out a stream of essays and magazine pieces for New York , Harper's and Esquire . Wolfe is survived by Sheila Wolfe, his wife of almost 40 years; a son, Tommy Wolfe, and a daughter, Alexandra Wolfe.

That's all you're getting for now. If anyone deserves a spin-off, it's Josh Brolin. Despite Deadpool's jokes on it, it is a pity that the studios couldn't make the movie on a larger scale. But, the post-credits scene has Deadpool zipping back in time and stopping Vanessa's murder.

After Deadpool 2, X-Men fans will be looking to X-Force for their next mutant fix. (There is a amusing explanation of where the X-Men are, by the way.) X-Force consists of a cadre of colorful characters, with memorable appearances from Bill Skarsgard, Lewis Tan and an utterly delightful Rob Delaney. Zazie Beetz will have you cheering out loud as Domino.
