Every time we think of Deadpool 2, we’re praying that it’s more Terminator 2 than Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. A sequel is tricky business – especially if the first film was sensational – and there’s always a chance that it might crumble under the weight of expectation.
When the news broke that Tim Miller had left directing duties after purported creative clashes with Ryan Reynolds, our hearts skipped a beat and we feared the worst for our beloved Wade Wilson. Had the curse of Fox’s superhero films struck Deadpool 2‘s production? So far, the answer seems to be a resounding no. In fact, the film is shaping up to be even better than the first one.
With less than a year to go until its release, everything we’ve seen of the Merc with the Mouth’s second solo outing looks incredible. From the casting to the tantalizing tidbits on social media, we’re struggling to find even one negative to complain about.
In the spirit of our anticipation for this film, we pinpointed several reasons as to why we think Deadpool 2 will be superior to Wade’s first solo movie. Naturally, you’re welcome to disagree or agree with us, just as long as you let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
On that note, things are about to get sexy on the next page, so put on your best lipstick and cocktail dress for your date with Mr. Wilson in 2018.
