No points for guessing whom are we referring to? "I'm going to be walking for them"'.

Ahead of the film's release, Reynolds talked to a reporter from entertainment news site IGN, Max Scoville - but this was no regular red carpet interview. Like Guardians of the Galaxy was for Marvel Studios, Deadpool was a huge gamble that paid off massively thanks to Ryan Reynold's brilliant comic-timing and an origins story that wasn't done to death. But are we looking at a sequel of Empire quality or Speed 2: Cruise Control? In fact, Deadpool took the stage during a recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and he absolutely eviscerated Ryan Reynolds with some awesome jokes. The 41-year-old actor, who is awaiting the worldwide release of "Deadpool 2", said now he is not the frame of mind to think about a third installment to the film, Variety reported.

When asked by a fan on Twitter if the couple were under strain and struggling to find time to spend together, Ryan replied: "I wish". I've said it before and I'll say it again, he was absolutely born to play this role and his dry wit is given much more room to breathe this time around.

Method actor: He added:;Deadpool is a little gross so the suit needs to be a little gross.

The new characters make fleeting impressions (there's a reason for that), but it's Domino or Lady Luck (Zazie Beetz), who shines through.

Emergency meeting called as Ebola spreads to Congolese city
The scale of the previous outbreak forced several nations, including Russian Federation and China, to develop vaccines to Ebola . Senior WHO official Peter Salama said the spread to Mbandaka meant there was the potential for an "explosive increase" in cases.

The movie's primary baddie is Cable (Josh Brolin), a no-nonsense soldier from the future.

Because the original Deadpool was such an out-of-nowhere box-office phenomenon, pulling in approximately $800-million on a budget of about $60-million, its sequel could easily have been a letdown. "Things didn't work out schedule-wise". By constantly breaking the fourth wall for Deadpool to directly address the audience and poke fun at his own film, Deadpool was a relief from the over-stuffed Marvel and DC entries, and proved that there was a huge market for an R-rated superhero film (if it was done right). You also probably remember that I had a feeling it would suck just by watching the trailer.

There are more layers to the story, but I can not talk about them without giving away major spoilers.

There's more meat to its comedy bones in Deadpool 2. After all, that wouldn't be the Deadpool way.

Throughout the film, Deadpool takes digs at everything and everyone within the superhero universe. Throw in a hilarious Rob Delaney appearance as moustachioed odd-man-out Peter, plus a few fantastic cameos, and the result is that numerous film's best moments come from the supporting cast instead of the star. Two, the sequel deals in overused tropes, clich├ęs, and outdated stereotypes: there are cases of fridging, middle-aged white men carrying deep scars, and backgrounding the inclusive supporting cast.
