'Deadpool 2' returns with more humour, mutants

We all know that Deadpool is an absolute savage, with the red and black-clad superhero often seen making sharp-tongued jabs at just about everyone from David Beckham to Celine Dion.

No spoilers will be forthcoming.

Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18. Brolin then bowls back in with one more: "You know why?" Deadpool became the biggest R-rated film of all time with a final tally of close to $800 million.

Cable has his reasons, of course, for wanting Russell dead, which involve his own personal tragedy, and it's repeatedly disorienting every time Deadpool 2 tries to pretend as though anything that's going on here matters on an emotional level.

The star of Deadpool 2 joined cast mate Josh Brolin in a "Playground Insults" game for Scott Mills' BBC Radio 1 program, during which each actor had to make the other laugh by coming up with the edgiest wisecracks. Speaking on the Build Series, Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds explains how the team-up came to be. Here are the best Easter Eggs and cameos to look out for in Deadpool 2. If anything, the surprising success of the original has resulted in more money and more insane sequences, like a chase sequence with a truck convoy and a weird scene when Deadpool's legs regrow after he is cut in half, giving him baby limbs for a time. "Oh, I'm Mr. Lively 24/7", he said to Steel. Jackson's likeness from the 2009 film is in the clip, to avoid meddling with his character's death scene in 2017's Logan. "I elected to just continue to scar her", he joked. The whistle-worthy moment comes as an absolute delight to SRK fans who would be surprised to find this special tribute in Deadpool 2.

Deadpool featured a scene where Wade tells Blind Al that there's a massive pack of cocaine buried under her apartment next to the cure for blindness.

It's a sad indictment on contemporary Hollywood comedy that a Marvel film can appear like the funniest thing released so far this year, but the confluence of Reynolds' note-perfect, irony-laden delivery with the script's finely-tuned gags and large dollops of physical humour results in some bone fide hilarity.
