Deadpool 2 starrs Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool.


‘Deadpool 2’ Has Style All Its Own

Ryan Reynolds Hilariously Graphic and Witty


Deadpool 2 is a nearly perfect blockbuster superhero movie, although the titular character is more of an anti-hero. Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool (alter ego Wade Wilson) is hilariously graphic and witty and the film has amazing stunts and special effects. However, the banter between Deadpool and his co-stars, including Zazie Beetz (Atlanta), TJ Miller (Silicon Valley), and Karan Soni (Safety Not Guaranteed), really makes the movie a unique, funny, captivating experience in a style of its own. Reynolds played a key role in writing and producing the film, and it’s easy to see how much energy he put into it. Deadpool 2 continues the series with just as much action, comedy, and cursing one has come to expect from Deadpool.
