Ryan Reynolds opens up about 'complicated' relationship with his father

Ryan Reynolds Sang Tomorrow As A Masked Unicorn On A South Korean Reality Show & We Are Not Worthy

"He got his arm cut off in the first one and we wanted to step it up just a notch by ripping him in half", Wernick jokes.

For every burst of gags that hits the target with laser-like precision, one punchline veers off course, and a protracted sequence involving the title character waiting for his body parts to regrow is a surreal narrative detour too far, even for a franchise that thrives on the ridiculous. Throwing his impish Alfred E. Neuman smile at the camera to make us feel weird, he sails through each nonstop raunchy verbal riff.

After an extremely cliché death sends Wilson into a suicidal tailspin, the X-Men's Colossus (Stefan Kapicic under a CGI sheath of metal) brings him to Professor Xavier's estate in order to groom him to become an X-Men trainee. While the film tries to imbue Deadpool and much of his supporting cast with some gravitas, it's hard to take anything here too seriously given the generally goofy tone of the movie - it's akin to trying to give Bugs Bunny an emotional arc in a vintage Looney Tunes short.

Unlike another Marvel movie you may have seen recently, "Deadpool 2" has a resolution. He's a super hero - antihero, really - or should we say a super mutant? It doesn't attempt to revamp the exhausted old techniques that make superhero films bombastic, dynamic, and spectacle-filled experiences but uses those and pokes fun at them afterward, aware that these old tropes are trite and overused - but that they work.

Are there any benefits or challenges, or opportunities to working, however loosely, within this bigger universe of Fox/Marvel/X-Men/maybe Disney etc? There is the current bench of X-Men - Nicholas Hoult's Beast and Evan Peters' Quicksilver, among other, avoiding Deadpool at the X-Mansion - and Hugh Jackman's Wolverine, kind of.

Is there a Deadpool 3 being planned? So I think the general feeling is let's let Ryan get out of the suit, us put the keyboards down for just a little while, take a little breather, and then come back to it. I would love to see him in a team-up sort of thing, like a mano a mano or a great female character from the X-Men universe.

"The power of just asking", Reynolds told ET's Carly Steel at the movie's premiere of how he convinced Pitt to make the cameo. Post-coital entertainment? "I like that it's open to interpretation", Reynolds deadpans. Deadpool is very much more the mercenary, with everything that bloody entails. "This is not meant to be some sob story - everyone carries their own bag of rocks around and I am no different in that regard - but growing up in my house, it was never relaxing or easy and I know that, throughout my life, I've dealt with anxiety in different ways". There's something fun about Deadpool because he plays sort of a countercultural aspect to that superhero world.
