Deadpool Is Looking To Knock Avengers Off The Top
From one Marvel hero to the next
Entertainment 5m

Deadpool 2 looks to knock Avengers: Infinity War off the top spot at the box office this week.

The action-comedy adaptation is looking at raking in a staggering $350 million globally in its first weekend, making it the largest opening for an R rated film ever. This would finally knock Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War off the box office throne after a consecutive 3 weeks at the top. The star-studded blockbuster has made a mind boggling $630 million dollars to date.

Back in 2016, the first Deadpool film was a welcome surprise in the usual sluggish month of February. The film was universally greeted with a warm critical reception and went on to make $783 million dollars, instantaneously greenlighting a sequel. Aussie audiences went nuts for the merc with a mouth as it went to gross $33 million, peaking at the 3rd highest grossing film of 2016 at the Australian box office.

Starring Ryan Reynolds as the titular anti-hero, Deadpool 2 tells the story of mercenary turned mutant superhero, Wade Wilson, who must form a team to take down fan-favourite cybernetic soldier, Cable (played by Thanos… I mean, Josh Brolin). With wise cracks, limitless ammo, and martial arts that would make John Wick blush, the sequel is set to make audiences fall in love with the chimichanga-eating hero all over again.

Deadpool 2 is in cinemas from today, check out the trailer below.

For added fun, here are two clips of Ryan Reynolds making an appearance on the popular Korean TV show, Masked Singer. Watch the charismatic Canadian belt out a beautiful rendition of the classic Tomorrow from Annie, before unmasking himself to a manic set of hosts. It sounds confusing but the show makes sense once you watch it.
