Blake Lively steals the show at husband Ryan Reynolds's Deadpool premiere

Blake Lively steals the show at husband Ryan Reynolds's Deadpool premiere

Much like the first film, "Deadpool 2" relies heavily on character development to hook the audience - and that's definitely not a bad thing.

The sequel, starring Ryan Reynolds, is hitting cinemas this Friday (May 18). The sequel will see Wade Wilson go head to head against Cable (Josh Brolin) to protect a young boy named Russell (Julian Dennison) and create the mercenary team known as X-Force in the process. Armed with just one, erm...arm..., a teddy bear with a tragic story behind it and a mission of revenge, the middle-aged time traveler finds himself up against Deadpool and a new group of hired guns the latter's calling "X-Force". But yeah, we'll see. We could chalk it up to being dated (less than a decade ago!), but it's still the version of Deadpool Fox thought would work in a standard Wolverine movie. "You look much smaller than me".

But with that in mind, there will surely be some fans who are hesitant about Reynolds' comment, considering the way that Wade's sexuality was addressed within the first Deadpool film.

The first Deadpool wasn't all that good an action movie, but it was an excellent comedy - what it lacked in plot and action, it more than made up for with slapstick gore and goofy meta-humour. It's another great poke at Reynolds' film career and feels perfectly in tune with Deadpool's self-deprecating sense of humor.

"Deadpool 2" is full of pop-culture references, which provides so many laughs you'll forget you're in a Marvel film. Though there aren't as many fun ways to inject four-letter words into new phrases, Deadpool gets in a few that should gloss up your next Scrabble game. Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) assembles this crew of mutants for one objective: to protect the young mutant known as Firefist (Julian Dennison). In its own way, it's more evocative of how the X-Men are depicted in comics than any X-film before it, and yet it leaves just enough breadcrumbs to clearly be set in the same universe as X-Men: Days of Future Past and Logan. It is highly probable Deadpool's R-rated success paved the way for another "90s icon like Deadpool and Cable coming to the big screen with this year's Venom at Sony". "How can you not like Deadpool?" they ask. "Down the road, I'm sure we'll figure it out", Reynolds said at the red carpet of the premier of the David Leitch directorial.

How does Deadpool 2 compare to the original?

If you enjoyed the first Deadpool this is more of the same, if not an excess of it. Reynolds and company are top-notch, though Brolin and Beetz are the ones to watch.

But it seems there's a sentimental side to the couple, too, with Ryan recently revealing that he thinks being married to Blake is his "best gig". It's a silly-as-hell comic book movie about a character constantly making jokes while stabbing people with swords.

Of course, there's plenty more going on in Deadpool 2 aside from Dopinder's enhanced role.
