Disney's CEO Just Told Fans What They Can Expect From 'Deadpool 2'—And They're Ecstatic

By Mustafa Gatollari

One of the biggest reasons the original Deadpool film was such a huge success and earned Fox such a ginormous box office return was because Ryan Reynolds worked his butt off to ensure it was as Deadpool-ey of a movie as possible.

That meant violence. It meant gore. It meant sex and inappropriate jokes and a lot of breaking the fourth wall. 

Now that kind of thing might seem like a movie producer's worst nightmare. Major motion picture studios looking for the highest rate of return are allured by family-friendly, safe cinematic choices. The more mundane and mediocre and inoffensive a film is, the more guaranteed of a return of investment, statistically speaking.
