"At what point will audiences say, "Enough with the superheroes"?" he asks just as Deadpool enters the frame from behind Colbert, answering, "Is it Deadpool 2?". We had no pie in the sky notions that we would be guaranteed a sequel after this. "It may not be as naughty as it thinks it is, or subversive in any real sense, but it does jettison many unwelcome now-standard attributes of superhero films that became convention nearly without us even noticing", he said. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone agreed, describing the movie as a "a grab-bag of humor, sorrow, sensation and silliness" that "throws everything it has at you until you throw your arms up in happy surrender".

'Hello, I'm Stephen Colbert and I'm legally blind, ' Deadpool said after taking Colbert's glasses. He tries to become one of the X-Men before meeting a troubled mutant kid Russell (Julian Dennison). He even gets to keep his Kiwi accent, which is a nice touch.

"Deadpool 2" opens in theaters nationwide this Friday, May 18. It's torture because you can't rip it off in the moment and be like, 'No, no, no!

The highlight of Deadpool 2 is a terrific set piece when, after Deadpool assembles his own "X-Force", the team parachutes in to rescue Russell from a high-security transfer truck that Cable has in his sights.

All recalled chainsaws were sold with a black blade guard and have the model number printed on a lable on the bottom of the saw. Over a million chainsaws have been recalled after they failed to turn off after being powered up, causing numerous injuries.

Deadpool went on to call Colbert "Jimmy", a nod to the other late-night hosts, before delivering the remainder of Colbert's monologue himself. "He's like the poor man's version of Ryan Reynolds, and like the rich man's version of my most recent turd".

Reynolds had previously said that Deadpool had come to fruition because a leaked footage of the movie reached the public and the fans' overwhelming reaction helped Fox finalise their decision of making a movie on the motormouth character. "Thank you for asking".

Brolin is an excellent villain, and the cast of supporting characters like Domino, Bedlam and Shatterstar are all solid in their roles.

Deadpool then offered Colbert some booking advice. He sees the world through the prism of a child's eyes sometimes and that's also why he's tempestuous and obnoxious and misguided so much of the time too.

"I tried to make it a Canadian connection", the actor told breakfast show Good Morning America.
