Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2. But play with others they must, because soon it will be time to do what all comic book superhero sequels do - build a "super duper f**king group".

No character suffers more from this back-and-forth than Cable (Josh Brolin), a character so dark and gritty that Deadpool wonders aloud if he's come over from the DC universe.

All of those are still true about Wade Wilson in Deadpool 2. He undergoes a dubious experiment in the hope of a cure, but is tortured and taunted by Ed Skrein's demented scientist Ajax. Even if the money is short, the scene's set for a sequel. "This mask is much easier to wear than the Deadpool mask". He co-directed John Wick (86%) and helmed Atomic Blonde (77%). I mean, my sort of wild guess would be that it would be an R-rated movie, but again, right now we're just assembling the troops to figure out what story we would tell. However, Deadpool 2 successfully manages to distract you from this by keeping you focused on the humor and action, as well as the introduction of the X-Force members, who are terribly underused. And despite what trailers might suggest, there isn't one arch-villain.

That's the major issue of Deadpool 2. "It's an unusual structure", says Wernick. And... don't even get me started on the X-Force and Peter. The Academy Award-nominated actor sees this as simply the beginning.

Reynolds, one of three credited writers, took more creative control with this sequel. I'm excited about a couple new characters that we're talking about.

There was never a final draft. Reynolds is on the record stating he was attracted to this character in part because of the rich comedic potential but more because he could play the part in makeup and prosthetics (or a mask), where his matinee idol, "Sexiest Man Alive" looks were eliminated. "Ryan was behind a [prosthetic] mask, so you could place whatever words you wanted into his mouth", says Reese.

That said, there are some conspicuous benefits of the original's success sprinkled throughout the movie, starting with a beefed-up supporting cast that includes Brolin and Zazie Beetz ("Atlanta"), an especially strong addition as Deadpool's new ally, Domino, which augments the fun.

Cable's got good reason to be bummed out, as we learn, but the film barely gives us any time to process his tragic backstory.

Will you be checking out Deadpool 2 when it comes out this weekend?

As the show's formula works, the star's appearance was left a secret until a big reveal ending.

So expect amped-up action and "jaw-dropping" sequences. In fact, one time he said he'd kill a baby if you paid him enough. This film is almost completely linear, Deadpool simply used jumping through time as a way to make a slow origin more exciting, and to trick you into thinking there was more action than there was. This was an unbelievable honor for me, you guys pushed me to my own limits and I thank you for that.
