Deadpool 2

It looks like Deadpool is getting more integrated into the MCU with this instalment in the series. It kept the elements that worked in the first one and fine tuned them to feel more polished. Yes, the humour was often puerile; Yes, the violence was often graphic; Yes, the action sequences were as you’d expect. And, it gave us glimpses into mutant correction facilities we don’t hear about elsewhere (aside from maybe Agents of SHIELD on TV) which could open a new roster of villains for Phase 4, and kept a cohesive plot with developed character arcs and a grounded story of human choice which can be summarised in the old Cherokee Proverb about “The Wolf You Feed”:

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life.

“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

In my view, I thought this movie was better than the first and, with the post-credits scenes, we see how the events in this movie could easily tie in to Avengers 4 depending on which rumours you want to believe about how the Avengers “fix” “that” ending in Infinity War.
