Early Reviews of Deadpool 2 Suggest That It May Actually Be Better Than Infinity War

Posted on by

As people may know, Deadpool is getting ready to be released. Fans are just coming off of the event film that is Infinity War. That film has taken on the emotions of many fans. As a matter of fact, people are expecting it to be the best film of the year when it comes to comic book franchises. However, there are reviews coming in that ease the concerns of fans who have heard that the film was not that good based on a review of an earlier cut.

 

One of the concerns about Deadpool 2 was that it was a blatant setup for the X-Force. This is a legitimate concern because another Marvel film franchise was treated as a setup for a team of heroes which never saw the light of day. It turned the film as a whole into a mess. Of course the film franchise in question is Blade. Wesley Snipes was not happy about the direction they were going in and neither were the fans. It was very likely that Ryan Reynolds was going to suffer a similar thing that has happened to Wesley Snipes.

 

Fortunately, the film was handled well. One of the best things they have done was keep the focus on the titular character. This is very important when it comes to telling a cohesive story. For one thing, it is very rare for a film that has tons of characters in it to work well. Infinity War and the other Avengers films are more of the exception than the rule. X-Men and X2 were good films, but the focus was on Wolverine. Deadpool 2 has managed to find the right balance to make it surpass its predecessor.

Deadpool and The X-Force Takes on The Avengers

Even though it is almost a given that Avengers: Infinity War is going to be a success, there is another franchise that is looking to take on the big group. This contender is Deadpool. He has his own group of people that he is forming. They are called the X-Force. Like one character in one of the Deadpool 2 trailers have pointed out, the name is a little derivative, but there are comics that are based on this particular group. Dealpool 2 has recently released a final trailer which has issued a challenge to the dead DCEU and the MCU.

One thing that Deadpool is known for is breaking the fourth wall, and this is not going to change in the upcoming movie. In the previous movie, Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool has made some sly references to another character that Ryan Reynolds has played. When referring to the suit, he has stated that he does not want the suit to be “animated” referring to The Green Lantern, which was released in 2011 as WB’s attempt to put together a DCEU. They have finally successfully started the universe with the slightly above mediocre, Man of Steel.

Deadpool is set to release a few weeks after Avengers: Infinity War. The only issue is that Infinity War is expected to run at least as strong as Black Panther. Therefore, it is going to be faced with stiff competition. Of course Deadpool is going to hold its own, but given that Avengers is rated so that people of all ages would be admitted to theaters to see it, Deadpool will likely fall just a little bit below Avengers, but it is still likely to be a success.
