Deadpool took over from Stephen Colbert and slammed Donald Trump

Deadpool vs. Stephen Colbert

The first Deadpool movie had a freshness and cheekiness that stood out in an era of popular superhero movies. The bond between Wade Wilson and his forever love Vanessa is one that some of us can only dream of. The second movie revolves around the theme of family. Colbert was just beginning his monologue, talking about the successes of "Black Panther" and "Infinity War", when he asked, "At what point will audiences say enough with the superheroes?" Also, his love for Logan/Wolverine.

While the Deadpool movies are great (seriously, the second one is better still than the first), it's certainly true that if you continue to make Deadpool the main character, you have to continually find ways to make him the underdog again and again, it has the potential to get repetitive and redundant, something Deadpool would probably point out in voice over the third or fourth time this happened.

The pop icon recently recorded the original tune Ashes for the new movie, and even formed an unlikely duo with Reynolds' anti-hero alter ego for the amusing music video, which was shot by the film's director, David Leitch, at Las Vegas' The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, where Celine stages her concert residency.

This time around, the story isn't just about Deadpool, and Ryan told Deco that's an adjustment.

Nation's most restrictive abortion law is challenged in Iowa
Pro-life lawmakers expected the legal challenge, and expressed hopes that the law eventually could lead to the reversal of Roe v. The abortion-rights groups declined to make the legal documents public until the court clerk filed and stamped official copies.

Now no review of Deadpool is complete without heaping praise on Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds carries the movie on his back-although this time around he should have shared the load a little more evenly with some of his talented co-stars. He's helped by the movie's standout Zazie Beetz as Domino, who has a new kind of superpower-supernatural luck: Nothing ever falls on her head, even when it's raining automobiles. All three actors tick the necessary boxes and we move on to see what Deadpool does next. If you are offended by jokes that are aimed at race, politics, sex, religion or Canada, you should look to one of the other comic book movies instead.

However, in the first post-credits scene we see young X-Men Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and Yukio (Shiori Kutsuna) actually get the device working again and hand it over to Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds), with a warning that Cable will kill him if he's caught using it.

"I nearly turned it down". Deadpool is a character that could easily become grating, but these films walk that fine line of making him oddly endearing.

The movie throws everything against the wall but not a lot sticks when you walk out the door. "I bet it's Deadpool 2".
