Watch Deadpool Crash the Late Show Stage to Steal Colbert's Job

Watch Deadpool Crash the Late Show Stage to Steal Colbert's Job

The wit, sarcasm and charisma of Deadpool the comic character cleanly couples with the dynamic personality of Ryan Reynolds the movie star.

The report predicts Ryan Reynolds' film to make between $130 million to $150 million in the U.S., and an additional $175 million to $200 million in the rest of the world. Played by Julian Dennison, the young New Zealand actor from "Hunt for the Wilderpeople", Russell turns out to have been sexually abused by the headmaster (Eddie Marsan) of the mutant academy he attends.

After the success of Deadpool, we expected the sequel to go bigger, raunchier, funnier and better. It's a testament to his charisma that he can carry these films while barely showing his real face. In a movie that embraces its comedy as much as its violence, Reynolds manages to carry those dramatically heavier moments with a genuine charm that comes from his own personal investment in the character.

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

"I'll tell you who should not be on your show: Ryan Reynolds".

The first Deadpool became the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time upon its release with $783.1 million. Starring Ryan Reynolds in the lead, it is the sequel to the 2016 superhero film Deadpool. But when the movie asks you to take Deadpool's relationship with Vanessa seriously, it doesn't fit with viewer expectations.

He said he took in as many games as he could and was there the night the Kings raised the Stanley Cup for the first time. Finally, when Scheifele was finished, they had an emphatic game of rock, paper, scissors to see who went next.

Deadpool 2 follows our favourite mercenary as he puts together a team of superheroes to fight against a time-travelling assassin named Cable. What we do get to see of both Beetz's Domino and Brolin's Cable are excellent though and leaves you wanting more.

One comment that went even too far for the sarcastic Vancouver-born star was when he told Brolin, "You're so bad in 'Goonies, ' when you come on screen people don't drink, they punch themselves in the d**k for five straight minutes".

# Growing were you a fan of superhero films or superheroes in general? Well, rejoice, for Deadpool 2 meets most of the expectations, save for going bigger (let's talk about that later).

And that fundamental mismatch never resolves itself, try as everyone might to distract us from scene to scene. For instance, I counted at least three jokes about pedophilia and sexual violence against kids. There are a couple lines in there that feel like they're more tame replacement dialogue than what we'll see in the final cut. Reynolds is the embodiment of the Deadpool character, he has once again carried his fine form and made the movie as epic as it is.

And don't worry: As we stated earlier and as Reynolds constantly reminds you throughout the two-hour film, Deadpool 2 is a family watch. Wherever you fall, it's safe to say viewers can at least agree that it's unapologetically crude and that Ryan Reynolds once again proves he is the ideal choice to play the titular anti-hero.
