The superhero genre, spanning all the different universes, have been really prototypic since itsinception with almost every movie made revolving around self-righteous civilians and aliens selflessly saving the world, making sacrifices that no one chooses to make and ultimately saving the world, quite predictably. Then came Along Deadpool and shattered every single hypothesis that had been formed about superheroes in the past decade of today’sgeneration and guess what?
He’s coming back real soon for some good old-fashioned ruthless ass-kicking.
Deadpool opened with the story of retired Marine Wade Wilson who was part of a really weird experiment which practically destroyed his life and his face. Bad enough for him not to face his lady love which pissed him off to great heights. His journey towards avenging his pretty-boy face was violent, chaotic and brilliantly entertaining.
The R-rated superhero movie pegged for a solid mid-range box office debut back in February, only to demolish all expectations with a massive $132 million opening weekend. The film went on to gross $782.6 million, and with Miller, screenwriters Rhett Reese andPaul Wernick and Ryan Reynolds all confirmed to return expectations from the sequel are huge.
One of the reasons that audiences seemed to gravitate towardsDeadpool earlier this year was the way it made fun of the superhero genre that it is now a part of. Even when following the now conventional post-credit scene pattern, the movie initially cracks a joke regarding audiences sitting through the credits.
Deadpool 2 News and Rumours:Character and Cast
There has been an enormous amount of speculation regarding the whole cast and character inclusion list for Deadpool 2 and the rumours show no sign of stopping. Earlier, confirmation was received regarding the character of Cable but the casting of the character was much speculated and now, Domino, another character from the X-Force team is rumoured to be the latest character addition to this film which will come back to break down the fourth wall yet again.According to Collider, there is a shortlist of ten actresses who could be starring opposite Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson. That shortlist features (deep breath): Lizzy Caplan, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Sienna Miller,Sofia Boutella, Stephanie Sigman, Sylvia Hoeks, Mackenzie Davis,Ruby Rose, Eve Hewson, and Kelly Rohrbach. All are apparently ‘testing’ for the role.
Bloodline star Kyle Chandler was rumoured to be an option for the role of cable, and with the world eager for news on what Deadpool will be doing next, the report spread fast.
There’s no official word yet on whether the original film’s female lead, Morena Baccarin’s Vanessa, will be back asecond time around, or whether they will stay true to the comics by sending her into superhero territory as her Copycat alter ego.
Like Deadpool, Domino is a mercenary and a mutant, and herpowers include the ability to initiate random telekinetic acts that turn probability in her favour. Additionally, she has a close connection to the mutant Cable, as her comics history found her becoming a partner, confidante, and lover of the mutant and frequent frenemy of Deadpool.
