he world fell in love with Deadpool. The "Merc With the Mouth" got the honor of being the first major superhero to get an R-rated release (other than the two flop Punisher movies), not only letting Ryan Reynolds’ hilariously obscene mouth run wild, but also letting the bullets fly with lots of exaggerated on-screen gunfights. The movie barreled through a bunch of box office records and a sequel was almost immediately inevitable. Not bad for a movie that Reynolds personally had to campaign to get made, complete with a short fan film as a proof of concept.
