I’m not a massive Marvel fan – I don’t get a single Marvel superhero title – and don’t think I’ve got a single appearance of Deadpool in my comics collection (scuttles off, checks his database – nope, not a one) so everything I know about this character, I know from the internet.
Thank you, internet.
Deadpool is funny, filthy, sweary, violent, fast . . . oh, and really funny, too. It works – Ryan Reynolds is just spot on and this more than makes up for the Green Lantern from a few years ago (and hey, I was one of four people who actually liked that film)
If you haven’t already seen it then go and do so now. And, as usual these days, stick with the credits for a mid-credits Matthew Broderick style scene.
Best superhero film of 2016 so far.
