Ryan Reynolds is a singing unicorn in his latest Deadpool escapade

Ryan Reynolds is a singing unicorn in his latest Deadpool escapade

The remainder of the cast mostly just plays off Reynolds, but Zazie Beetz gets some nice moments as an X-Force recruit named Domino. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the actor said Goddard's take on Deadpool becoming a team player is a fun one he can't wait to explore on set.

Then, suddenly, they reveal themselves to be one of the biggest movies stars in the entire world!

At the same time, though, this movie's got much more of a sense of brand synergy than the first one had. One or two of the gags land - such as a non sequitur about Guy Pearce - but Deadpool 2 is mostly just a carbon-copy of its smugly satisfied predecessor. After a sloppy first scene that feels like it should have been left on the cutting room floor, Beetz quickly becomes the center of attention, drawing your eyes in every scene she's in as she holds her own against both Reynolds and Brolin.

Wade Wilson is a dishonoured Special Forces operative-turned-mercenary (of sorts) who turns to desperate measures when diagnosed with terminal cancer. Wade and girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) have plans to start a family before, as with all plans man makes, God (or whoever) laughs, allowing for as much pensive self-inspection as a Deadpool flick can muster and some moments that are actually quite affecting, which Reynolds sells equally well.

The actor, who is eager to reprise his role as the foul-mouthed anti-hero, praised writer-director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) and said that he can't wait to work with the creative on the Deadpool spinoff.

If there is an improvement, it's in the action sequences.

In Deadpool 2, Deadpool has gone global, making the sweetest hits ever made by a mercenary for hire.

Directed by David Leitch, the action is pretty run-of-the-mill. The straight-laced metal monster Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapicic) ferries him back to Professor Charles Xavier's X-Mansion where Deadpool will - hopefully - heal his tired soul just enough to kill himself and join his beloved Vanessa in the sweet hereafter. It's also a Cable origin story that explains how and why he's come to our time, and an X-Force prequel that introduces a whole bunch of fresh faces - fresh enough, Wade notes, to "carry the franchise 10 to 12 years from now", - to start getting the gang together for the next film. Following Wolverine's demise in Logan, Deadpool's focus has now shifted to Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. This was an unbelievable honor for me, you guys pushed me to my own limits and I thank you for that. Are you walking into the same kind of costumed glut that threatened to turn the most recent Avengers film into Infinite War on Character Development? Given Disney's buying Fox, the merc with a mouth might just have his day.
