"You're gonna say that with a straight face to 1998's MTV's Best Kiss nominee Ryan Reynolds?".
Deadpool 2 is a sequel that knows exactly what its audience wants to see.
The sarcastic, foul-mouthed antihero Deadpool returns with the sequel, Deadpool 2.
Post-credits scenes are nearly a given in superhero films these days, which is probably why Ryan Reynolds' first Deadpool film mercilessly made fun of them in a short, Ferris Bueller-styled scene that mocked Marvel's habit of including "Sam Jackson with an eyepatch and a saucy little leather number".
One of 2016's greatest surprises was "Deadpool", because much like his on screen alter ego, you just can't keep Ryan Reynolds down.
To which the 50-year-old replied: "I do man, I feel weirded out admitting it in front of you because you're laughing at me right now, but I feel confidence". "So I knew he was working off a different footprint than some of the other guys", Reynolds had said in an earlier interview with the LA Times.
Deadpool then playfully called Colbert "Jimmy" - no doubt in reference to two of the host's talk show rivals, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel - before turning his hand to delivering some of the scripted monologue. And yes, I would love to be your guest tonight. "It's one of those things, it's an inside voice, something you don't tell everybody but when you're promoting a movie you finally tell people - I'm a massive fan of The Proposal". "Thank you for asking".
He even took over Colbert's monologue after first putting on his glasses. "I see, well he's got boyish charm for days". "I for one loved his work in Back to the Future". It takes Deadpool having to learn a few lessons before he can actually save the day but in true comic book movie form he does.
It's safe to say Ryan Reynolds is passionate about his role as Wade Wilson, the violent and volatile Merc' With the Mouth.
The laughs come thick and fast, the action is everything you would expect from a Marvel movie with several quality set pieces, yet at the heart of the movie it retains a tale of a superhero facing loss, questioning his motives and his own mortality. Composer Tyler Bates told the Hollywood Reporter he was getting new cuts with new jokes well into the post-production process, indicating Reynolds' dedication to the quality of the new film.
Turning his attention to Trump, Reynolds/Deadpool referred to America pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal as "Trump's biggest pulling out blunder since Eric".
