How Deadpool 2 Breaks The X-Men Movie Timeline AGAIN

"In our way, we late-night hosts are basically superheroes", Colbert says at one point.

DEADPOOL 2 Hits Theaters May 18, 2018!

In the movie, Deadpool or Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) faces perhaps the most tragic moment in his life.

"You're so old, you make dust look like a baby", Reynolds says as he starts in on Brolin. The lines between good guys and bad guys are refreshingly blurred, and the movie is at its funniest when it genuinely subverts the formula - as with Deadpool's ill-prepared attempt to assemble his own "X Force" superhero team. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who almost destroyed his life. "Are you sure you're not from the DC Universe?"

The same can be said for Kane at Tottenham as he's now scored 108 goals in 150 Premier League games. Harry Kane is "looking forward" to taking Mohamed Salah on for the Golden Boot next season.


Not only does it have no signs of a period setting the way the First Class timeline movies all do of their periods, but it has to have followed Green Lantern and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Elsewhere there's a moderately successful series of jokes about white people that gives the film a contemporary zing (although Karan Soni's Indian caricature remains as head scratchingly clumsy as ever), and there are meta references galore. "I bet it's Deadpool 2", said Reynolds as he entered from offstage, in costume. The new characters don't have time to make much of an impression, except for Zazie Beetz from "Atlanta" who has a great turn as Domino, a strong, sardonic superhero who relies on luck.

David Leitch, who previously directed Atomic Blonde and was one-half of the directorial duo behind John Wick, took over from Tim Miller, who helmed the first film. Deadpool is a fan of many things one would not expect, such as Adventure Time, and Bea Arthur, The Golden Girls, and apparently, Celine Dion.

As seen up-close on celebrity manicurist Elle's Instagram, Lively's nails rep her husband's movie in the best way. Name an Avenger with that kind of pop-culture savvy. Naturally, though, most of the jokes he told after taking over Colbert's monologue in earnest were Donald Trump-related fare. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
