The Return of Marvel's Motormouth Mercenary

With "Deadpool 2", Ryan Reynolds skilfully sets himself apart from the majority of conventional and streamlined Marvel superheroes we saw most recently in "Black Panther" and "Avengers: Infinity War".

Of course, there are also the Guardian of the Galaxy, who themselves mixed cool catchphrases and deprecating humour with classic heroism and who allied themselves with the Avengers in "Infinity War". The former elite soldier Wade Wilson, who once hired himself out as a mercenary until he was the victim of a dangerous experiment and transformed himself into the superhero Deadpool in part one, goes one step further. Now he returns to the big screen – bigger, better and occasionally even "more without trousers" than ever. When a super soldier creates a plan for a murderous mission, Deadpool is forced to reconsider values such as friendship and family. More and more he realises what it really means to be a hero.
