ORE SELF-REFERENTIAL than a night in with John Donne, more subversive to the superhero film fraternity than picketing a Comic Con and funnier than anyone could have ever expected, Deadpool was a great film. Will Deadpool 2 be as good? Of course it won’t, but what it lacks in wit or cheekiness, it will no doubt try to make up for with bigger action, more characters and slapstick humour by the truckload. The ineffable Ryan Reynolds returns as our titular hero, who this time must save a young mutant (Julian Dennison) from the evil time-travelling Cable (Josh Brolin). In order to do this Deadpool must create the ‘X-Force’, a deliberately gender neutral, motley crew parallel to the X-Men. The X-Force contains the brilliant Zazie Beetz and Rob Delaney, two people we can’t wait to see. Alongside Dennison, Brianna Hildebrand and Reynolds himself, you can’t say the cast is in any way lacking and that’s worth the price of admission alone.
