Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds is a surprisingly great singer

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds is a surprisingly great singer

Earlier this month, Reynolds dressed as Deadpool to complain - with some justification - that Canada wasn't allowed to participate in Eurovision when "you let in Australia, and they're barely on the planet".

Having signed a contract to appear in - count 'em - three more films, Brolin's Cable is far removed from the comic book version and is conceived here more as a variation on the title character in the "Terminator" franchise. Deadpool's constantly referring to this or that expository dialogue as "lazy writing"; Deadpool's marginal place in the "X-Men" film universe comes up for major mockery, just as Reynolds' own failed "Green Lantern" movie is a target, as it was in "Deadpool" the first.

When Reynolds was revealed, they screamed in excitement and desperately tried to get selfies with the star. Similarly, if you hated the first one, you probably won't find much to love about the follow-up either. The problem with the returning characters - and yes, that includes Dopinder - is that they don't feel necessary to the plot once it kicks in, which takes a while. Go see Deadpool 2. After all, as Wade himself would probably tell you, Deadpool 2 is definitely getting a sequel.

Melania Trump expected to remain hospitalized for rest of the week
She underwent the surgery at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Bethesda on Monday, New York Post reported. Normally, this is an outpatient procedure, but the first lady will be recovering the rest of the week in the hospital.

All of those are still true about Wade Wilson in Deadpool 2.

In typical superhero story fashion, Deadpool 2 begins by robbing its hero of the power that makes him special. If you enjoyed the first one, there's every chance you'll like this one as well.

It's unbelievable that we live in a cinema world where a bananas character like Deadpool can essentially be the centerpiece to an entire film franchise's future.

Sam Allardyce talks about Everton's priorities heading into summer
When first asked about the deal, Olson told reporters in the United States : "I don't know what you're talking about". DC United are now rock-bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference table with five points from seven games.

Directed by David Leitch, the action is pretty run-of-the-mill. Stunt co-ordinator Jonathan Eusebio's gets in on the action too. Now the sequel Deadpool 2 is touted to be bigger and better than the first. The straight-laced metal monster Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapicic) ferries him back to Professor Charles Xavier's X-Mansion where Deadpool will - hopefully - heal his tired soul just enough to kill himself and join his beloved Vanessa in the sweet hereafter. This film is almost completely linear, Deadpool simply used jumping through time as a way to make a slow origin more exciting, and to trick you into thinking there was more action than there was. Best of all, he is the ideal straight-man foil to Deadpool's nonsense. In a recent Twitter post to congratulate the record-breaking success of Avengers: Infinity War, Reynolds wrote, "From a guy who never knows when to quit, I'm glad you guys never did". "Go bother Prof X", Stark supposedly replied. If you're a fan of X-Men-universe comics, it's great to see these characters on the big screen doing what they do best.
