'Deadpool 2' Early Buzz: Better Than The First Film In Every Way

The first Deadpool took the superhero world by storm, breaking down fourth walls and poking fun at the genre that has dominated Hollywood for the past 15 years. But was that just lightning in a bottle?

Turns out no, according to the Deadpool 2 early buzz. In fact, critics say that the 20th Century Fox sequel is even better than the first film, earning the movie's bloody R-rating and wowing early audiences with a post-credits scene that some are saying is the best superhero post-credits scene ever.

Believe it or not, there are a fair few people who weren't completely charmed by the first Deadpool. But the problems they found in the 2015 movie were nowhere to be seen in Deadpool 2, which critics called a vast improvement over the first film.

Although most critics tried to keep a tight lid on spoilers, many couldn't help but mention the post-credits scene. Rarely has a post-credits scene been raved about as much — or even more — than the film itself, but apparently Deadpool 2 has a post-credits scene for the ages.

However, there were a few who weren't so keen on it. The sequel has apparently doubled down on the tongue-in-cheek meta humor and the juvenile jokes catered toward teenagers.

But it inevitably drew some comparisons to another recent Marvel superhero movie starring Josh Brolin — in a good way.

Them's fighting words.

The review embargo for Deadpool 2 lifts on Monday, May 14, so until then, you can be content in knowing that the sequel will probably exceed your expectations.
