Deadpool 2 has the best mid-credits scenes in superhero movie history

  • Deadpool 2 Movie Reviews'Better and Bolder than The First, Critics are in Awe of Ryan Reynolds Superhero Film

And in this case, more is actually more: Deadpool 2 still delivers all the gore, brutal action, and wildly coarse humor of the first (if a bit less of the raunch), only with a better story, bigger, more expansive action, and some great new characters to play with.

For fans of Deadpool, this is red meat, a signal that the anti-hero's snarky, self-aware persona - which made the first film a $780 million success - has not changed. Josh Brolin glowers capably as Cable, a time-traveling cyborg who - with very little credit to "Terminator" - is trying to assassinate a mutant kid named Russell (Julian Dennison).

The best sequels, whether superhero or otherwise, are those ones that bring a measure of control with them. Director David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, uncredited for his work on John Wick) attacks his job with gusto right from the pre-titles set-pieces, where Deadpool slaughters armies of goons before spoiler-y tragedy splinters his own life.


Wade Wilson still feels like the role Ryan Reynolds was born to play, and Reynolds continues to give this character everything he's got. That does not, however, mean the final product won't tack on one, as the early screenings of the original Deadpool did not contain the Ferris Bueller-inspired post-credits scene that assured audiences there would definitely be a Deadpool 2 featuring Cable. Gone is Tim Miller who directed the first film and exited the follow-up due to creative differences with Reynolds over the direction. Deadpool is no longer the underdog making good, but the focal point of a very prolific franchise. "Not only does the sequel explore this flawed character, it firmly establishes him as a loveable and effective hero". Go see Deadpool 2. That's not to say movies need to be all comedy or all drama, but the unique world of Deadpool and its brand of meta-commentary makes it hard for the film to sink back into being a real movie.

He then goes back and saves Peter, one of the X-Force members who dies during the ill-fated skydive onto the convoy carrying Russell between prisons.

That's not to say Deadpool 2 is tiresome. Instead, there are likely to be several X-Force movies, which I think will be refreshing. Deadpool 2 is a movie that's eager to let you know it's in the club and wears its bonafides on its blood-stained sleeve. In keeping with the rest of the movie, it's still fairly small-scale and character-focused, and surprisingly, it's emotionally effective too.
