Yet another Marvel “superhero” story? Hasn’t this crap been put to bed yet? Can’t Hollywood think of new, imaginative stories? Or are they all stuck in the unimaginative mud?

-5 ( +4 / -9 )

I don’t know whether to fault the cookie cutter, no imagination of the movie studios or the theater-goers going to see the e cr*p.

As long as you don't expect Academy Award level performances like the previous two posters, it should be a fun movie.

YES!

Hasn’t this crap been put to bed yet?

Supply and demand. When the world says enough, then they will stop.

They can, but nowadays, most of the movies are woke, remade, racially and gender-focused crap that no one wants to watch.

I don't like video games, I don't own any game console, don't see what all the hype is about, but that doesn't matter because it is a 54-billion-dollar industry and this is what the younger generation likes, not for me, but there is a demand out there, same analogy when it comes to certain movie or music genres.

Exactly, and we all need to laugh and get our minds away from the daily grind of hustle, the good and the bad.

If the story is good, fun, or interesting. All is good! if it is junk, too woke, or inappropriately woke. I'll give it a miss. Some woke is great, but some don't work. Some woke is good. we broke and ended the black and white minstrel shows, we got away from the days when blacks were only seen as criminals arrested by a white cop. We stop portraying gay men as deviant or fitting into a pervert role. We can see a good range. I just don't like it when they want to squeeze in a black character for the sake of doing it. or making a lead character a different gender, because that ticks a box. The day I see Mary and the Chocolate Factory, or a black Cinderella I will truly scream. So if the story is original, funny, I am sooo up for it. Plus Wolverine was always a cool character.

Previous Deadpool flicks did well at the box office mainly for its humour, f-bombs, and violence. R-rated comic books have some appeal. The first one was alright. The second......not so good. Bringing back Wolverine from the dead will make 3 popular. Jackman is a decent actor. But it remains to be seen how good the story will be. It will surely do better than the latest: the Marvels, Madame Webb, Aquaman, Suicide Squad 2, the Flash....LOL!!!

Deadpool is the complete opposite of woke.

Nothing is more cringe than adult men complaining about “woke”.

Deadpool is canonically a bisexual, gender-fluid, profligate drug taking mutant.

I have no idea where that falls on the spectrum of "woke".

Maybe it is a pointless debate?

We know, but that’s ok, he’s showing more of his masculine side heavily.

I have no idea where that falls on the spectrum of "woke". 

Only if Marvel decides to focus more heavily on his bisexual side.

Maybe it is a pointless debate?

Yup

Yup

For once in agreement.

Let's see if Deadpool is really the Marvel Jesus.

If ya think Deadpool is like other MCU movies, then clearly you've not seen Deadpool, lol

Only Deadpool could bring Hugh Jackman back to Wolverine after retiring him in Logan

People have been asking for a Deadpool x Wolverine crossover for ages. People just want stories they like - when that happens, there's no superhero fatigue

Another overrated, bored and surely failed superdumb movie..
