Ryan Reynolds Is The Rainbow Unicorn We've Been Waiting For

Reynolds was in South Korea to promote Deadpool 2 at the time.

Later, when Reynolds took off his mask for the big reveal, the audience went wild, and so did the judges, as they climbed over each other yelling that they wanted a photo with the star. Maybe Deadpool isn't ideal by every measure of scrutiny, but it was the flawless thing for the character.

We're pretty sure you haven't seen anything like this. They aren't why movie-goers love Deadpool, of course, and they aren't what makes "Deadpool 2" such a fun way to spend a couple hours, but they add depth, something relatable amid the almost nonstop zaniness. So, I will only dive gently into the plot. But when it was Josh Brolin's turn to hype up the film, who plays the baddie Cable, he went in a very different direction.

The new story has Deadpool going on a journey of self-discovery of sorts.

When the first Deadpool came out, people were excited, but it certainly wasn't burdened by hefty expectations outside of the hardcore fanbase. They put the songs later. But when you meet him again, he's just more of the same and that's ... boring. It's jam-packed with curveballs and shocking moments.

Sequels often suffer from trying to cram too much in and by focusing too much on upping the stakes.

Meanwhile Wolverine star Hugh Jackman has praised Deadpool 2 as well.

Deadpool 2 is consistently amusing, riddled with jokes that continuously hit bigger and better than the last but the sequel gets off to a bit of a rocky start that feels like it's wading in what made the first film successful before it introduces anything fresh into the mix like new characters and cameos (don't blink). In keeping with the rest of the movie, it's still fairly small-scale and character-focused, and surprisingly, it's emotionally effective too. This is a sequel that is attempting to do a lot. And when we asked why he hadn't done a comic book movie before, Crews gave a very frank response. There's a scene a third of the way into the credits that's (I'm serious here) the best credits/post credits footage I've ever seen in a superhero movie.

Although perhaps a bit long, Deadpool 2 doesn't really overstay its welcome. Yes, that's right: Deadpool gains the ability to travel through time. "That's just the best, thank you", he added.

Ryan Reynolds says that he speaks about his lifelong battle with anxiety publicly to help destigmatise mental health topics.

Then things get both meta and hilarious.

Honestly, even though he declared himself "in the top five worst singers in the universe", we were kind of impressed with Reynolds' pipes. It's a faithful and awesomely realized version of the fan-favorite mutant.

Nobody expected the first Deadpool movie to be a hit. It's a home run.

It's been reported that a post-credit scene showing Deadpool killing baby Hitler was cut from the new movie. You want to have a good time? Deadpool 2 is, if less of a surprise than its predecessor, just as amusing; if it's less sexy, that doesn't mean you're not going to get to see the protagonist walking around with no trousers.
