Seems like this sequel has had a lot of trailers in a short amount of time? Is it me? Hopefully none of ’em have been showing too much of the good stuff. There’s nothing too spoiler filled in this final trailer. What you do get is a clear outline of the plot, the threat (which is interesting) and the formation of X-Force.

I know I haven’t had any reviews up this week but it’s been a busy one where movie news and trailers are concerned. Rest assured I’ve got plenty ready to go.

Deadpool 2 hits theatres May 18th.

It’s been a long time coming for comic book fans but we now – finally – have Cable on his way to big screen. This past few weeks has been great for X-Men fans, with shooting kicking off on New Mutants, X-Men: Dark Phoenix and Deadpool 2. Following on the heels of the Domino reveal several days ago we now have a first look at Josh Brolin as Cable. Cable is the time traveling mutant, who got his big breakout during the early 90’s X-Men and X-Force comics and would go on to gain a massive fan following.

Last week (again I’m great with the breaking news aren’t I? Haha) Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds revealed the FIRST look at actress Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as the mutant Domino. Of course X-Men fans will know her as time traveller Cable’s partner in crime and often time member of X-Force. Domino uses her abilities to manipulate events around her to her favour, which must come in handy in those life and death situations as she kicks a tremendous amount of arse! I haven’t seen Atlanta (yet) but I hear it’s great and I think Beetz looks great as Domino.

My fear for the sequel is it goes bigger than the first flick and ends up a bloated mess and honestly I can’t wait to be proven wrong on that assumption. What I would love is to see another action packed and lean adventure clocking in at just 95 minutes or so but the film is not being made just for me so here’s hoping whatever the end result is it’s a winner.

Deadpool 2 is directed by David Leitch (John Wick) and sees the return of Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Leslie Uggams and pretty much everyone else who survived the first movie. Josh Brolin and Beetz join the series as newcomers Cable and Domino.

You can catch Deadpool 2 next summer.

I missed this one at the cinema. Shame. For a while it didn’t look like fans of the merc with the mouth were going to get a faithful movie adaptation. Thankfully they did and it is in no small part due to the great directing of one Tim Miller and a truly delightful script filled with violence and comedy from Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick. A knockout cast doesn’t hurt the movie either.

Deadpool’s biggest asset is of course it’s star Ryan Reynolds. He was born to play Wade Wilson. Reynolds, a naturally funny guy, is able to switch it up jumping from the comedy to the action and the dramatic when the story calls for it. He is Wade Wilson. He is backed up with strong support from Morena Baccarin as the love of Wades life, Ed Skrein as the villainous Ajax & T.J Miller as Wade’s buddy Weasel. As comic fans know Deadpool has ties to the X-Men and we get two of them along for the ride as a bonus in the form of Stefan Kapicic’s Colossus and Brianna Hildebran’s Negasonic Teenage Warhead (!!) and both add humour and some serious butt kicking to proceedings.

Miller wisely keeps the film lean, the plot is simple (Wade gets duped into becoming Deadpool, his girl is kidnapped, he goes to get her back) and the action focused and violent. Deadpool made waves on release for being –

A. A risk. It’s a R rated movie full of swearing and gore set in the same universe as Fox/Marvel’s very inoffensive X-Men movies.

B. It made serious $$$$$ at the box office. No one saw it coming.

– it’s seriously violent in places but in that way it’s very refreshing. No brooding, no “Woe is me” or “I don’t kill” goings on here in this movie and it’s all the better for it.

Deadpool fans have had their prayers answered with this movie, Fox have a massive new hit/franchise on their hands and fans of lean and mean action movies have hope that big studios may start to not fear that hard edge much longer. Deadpool proves that a film made for a certain target audience CAN translate and attract bigger numbers. You can’t keep making movies that appeal to EVERYONE because you can’t please everyone. That’s the lesson I hope studios take away from this fun little action flick.

Go and check out Deadpool. You won’t be disappointed.
