Ryan Reynolds returns as the special-ops turned mercenary in David Leitch’s 'Deadpool 2'


Deadpool 2 

Here’s the official plot synopsis for Deadpool 2, courtesy of 20th Century Fox: “After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender, while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor—finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.” If only. Despite the studio’s claims, ex-special forces operative Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is actually back for more of the same in his second go-round as Deadpool. But if “The Merc with a Mouth” was the class clown when last we saw him, he’s graduated to becoming the hanger-on who hurls insults—plus an inexplicable stream of pop culture references that might be funny if you’re the one who enjoys Family Guy. Surprisingly, Deadpool 2 has become the very thing the first film laughed at. Poking fun at superhero movie conventions doesn’t excuse you from adhering to them. And while director David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, John Wick) is working with a fraction of the budget of, say, Avengers: Infinity War, he’s also made a film with a fraction of that picture’s entertainment value. But at least one person should enjoy themselves: After playing villains in both films, Josh Brolin must be laughing all the way to the bank.
