Deadpool Interrupts Stephen Colbert's Monologue On The Late Show

Deadpool Interrupts Stephen Colbert's Monologue On The Late Show

When the world first met Ryan Reynold's version of Deadpool in 2016, it was a surprising twist from the comic book superhero universe that we're all used to. He is more of a super violent antihero with a few abilities and a very foul mouth.

Structurally, Deadpool 2 feels like a less complete journey this time round and seems to lose some direction, but it's so entertaining you don't really care. It's the same case this time.

The film builds on the first one, but having seen it is not a requirement.

In an exclusive one-on-one interview with KISS 92, he declares: "Singapore will love Deadpool 2, it is literally the best one yet".

After watching the movie, we can only sum it up in three words. I'm excited to put out some of the things we have ready to go in terms of the marketing.

Ryan Reynolds will soon reprise his role as Deadpool in Deadpool 2. It's R rated in the USA, if that gives you an idea of its tone. "You're so old you make dust look like a baby". (And, yes, breaking the fourth wall.) True to form, Reynolds also managed to sneak in a joke at superhero movies in general while in Deadpool's guise: when Colbert suggested that late-show hosts are like superheroes, Reynolds asked, "Because you're all mostly white men?"

So it is fair to say that Deadpool 2 is bolder than before.

He added that the Islamic Republic would not give up under pressure, sanctions or threats. "Today, the USA has violated worldwide regulations and must be put under pressure".

Much like the original film, it looks to be an ultra-violent, crude and rather amusing superhero romp. It centred around the love story between Wade Wilson aka Deadpool and his girlfriend Venessa (Morena Baccarin). That humour, oh. And remember all that marketing that had happened prior to the release of Deadpool?

#3 Entertaining This word doesn't even begin to describe Deadpool 2.

Josh Brolin, who had the honor of playing the mutant Cable in the character's big screen debut, stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night, and while a good portion of the conversation focused on his acclaimed performance as Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, Fallon did eventually get around to bringing up Cable. From X-Men Origins: Wolverine to the leaked test footage and now to the sequel to the original Deadpool, he's made it clear he is dedicated to the character. All of the characters are great, the standout being Zazie Beetz's Domino. You'll see what we mean.

Sadly, Wade's other deceased X-Force teammates Bedlam, Vanisher, Shatterstar and Zeitgeist (played by Terry Crews, Brad Pitt, Lewis Tan and Bill Skarsgaard respectively) don't get the same treatment.

Facing off in the Playground Rules game on the Scott Mills Show on BBC Radio 1, Reynolds and Brolin went head-to-head trading insults with each other. With the genre becoming ever more popular, it was inevitable that even a Marvel character would poke fun at it. We know you can't help it, but just don't.

Deadpool 2 is unreservedly and unashamedly embracing its madness.
