Thanos Kills Off Deadpool on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Thanos Kills Off Deadpool on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”

If so, this article will be updated.

Deadpool 2 occasionally threatens to overstretch its material, but comes equipped with enough laugh-out-loud gags, wince-inducing kills and surprising cameos to delight diehard fans and casual viewers alike.

We'll still break them up separately, though.

For the most part, reviews are positive. Deadpool 2 now has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 82%, which is slightly worse than the first movie's 83% score. Did you hold anything back or save anything thinking that there would be a sequel? We thoroughly enjoyed Deadpool's effort to piece together his team of X-Force, which Domino found to be "a little derivative" for obvious reasons.

Sadly, Wade's other deceased X-Force teammates Bedlam, Vanisher, Shatterstar and Zeitgeist (played by Terry Crews, Brad Pitt, Lewis Tan and Bill Skarsgaard respectively) don't get the same treatment.

OK, now this is where things get really meta.

But we also know that Ryan Reynolds - the smooth-talking chin-wearer behind the mask - has been known to dish out a few hilarious digs at people, too. not least towards wife Blake Lively, who thankfully not only takes it all in her stride, but also bites back with equally good stuff.

Of course, the two actors did appear together in X-Men Origins: Wolverine but this was at a time when Reynolds was portraying a different and far less popular version of Deadpool. What even is canon? "Both stand and read jokes?" the late-night host asked.

Unfortunately, with Hugh Jackman retiring from the role of Wolverine after Logan in 2017, the chance that this union taking place has obviously decreased dramatically.

Our personal favourite is when Deadpool takes a jab at Thanos (because Josh Brolin who plays Thanos also plays Cable in this movie, in case you haven't caught up). "See I'm under here, ' [and] undo four hours of prosthetic makeup work", Reynolds said. Reynolds' dedication to his character, as he juggles between his signature profane comedy and over-the-top action, keeps your attention.

The sarcastic, foul-mouthed antihero Deadpool returns with the sequel, Deadpool 2.

We then hear a gunshot and the script is splashed with blood.

"I'm against child abuse", the "Deadpool" star quipped on breakfast show "Good Morning America", as he explained his opposition to the career path. "Showbusiness for a little kid is a insane pursuit". Quite the moment to end this film on.

This doesn't exactly dilute the impact of Deadpool 2, but forebodes a bigger problem in the evolution of the superhero genre. From Wade Wilson we'd expect nothing less.
