Ryan Reynolds Sounds A Bit More Hopeful About Deadpool 3 Now

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. But after a major death in the first 10 minutes of the movie, Deadpool goes into a funk and does something drastic: he considers becoming an official member of the X-Men.

All considered though, Deadpool 2 is the near flawless package, creating a second chapter that maintains the anarchic spirit of the original, while offering some surprisingly successful lamentations on the nature of love, loss and vulnerability.

There are narrative stakes, of sorts, smuggled in with screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick's mission to make sides ache (they are joined this time round by Reynolds himself). Then there's Brolin's Terminator-like newcomer who while packing a literal punch and going toe-to-toe with those around him doesn't quite pay off with the same satisfaction as his fellow debutante although there's hopefully a lot more to offer in the follow-ups. Nothing is taken seriously...except for the stuff that is.

But Reynolds - who already has one superheroic misfire under his belt with 2011's Green Lantern - should have known that the lightning in a bottle he captured with the first Deadpool was going to be hard to repeat.

It's actually amusing how much can't be in the trailers because of how much it would spoil the fun, so I obviously won't do that here. Let's take a look at Deadpool 2, Book Club and Show Dogs.

Skipping ahead a bit, Wade finds himself helping his X-Men pals from the first movie, the metal-clad Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapicic) and the always-sullen Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). In general, Deadpool 2 is overstuffed with characters and subplots even if the throughline never loses its focus on the importance of family, blood-related or not. And he kinda can't be that. 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. Pool so desperately want to die, and well, the answer is a logical one even if the event kicking off the story feels rushed. Deadpool works best either when he's the only insane element, or when he can be the puckish trickster who can comment on the heaviness of the main storyline. Make no mistake about it, Zazie is fine in the role and gets some badass action sequences including her own one-on-one fight with Cable, but viewers are left knowing nothing about her other than a rough sketch of her personality and superpowers.

As directed by Atomic Blonde's David Leitch, there are some thrillingly unpredictable moments when the carpet is pulled from under you, amid all the obligatory yet still highly stylized action. But none of the sequences have the kind of bravura silliness of the first movie. If going bigger (not necessarily narratively, but with the sheer amount of characters introduced and returning who all simply don't get enough time to make a lasting impression besides Cable) and suffering in quality for it is meant to be commentary on the overall state of Hollywood blockbusters feeling the need to up the stakes to the point of hurting the project, then I suppose that spirit is kept alive, but it's downright shocking that the self-aware franchise doesn't include a witty remark on the subject. 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.
