Deadpool has the nickname the “Merc with the mouth” for a reason.
The first Deadpool film re-wrote the narrative for superhero movies, proving that a Rated-R, cursing, violent, wise-cracking assassin could become one of the biggest success stories in Hollywood. Powered by the hilarious timing and washboard abs of Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool became a worldwide phenomenon, making over $780 million at the global box office.
That success naturally led to a sequel, with Reynolds returning as the titular hero, along with new additions like Josh Brolin as Cable, Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Terry Crews as Bedlam. Based on the trailers, Deadpool 2 looks wilder, crazier, and funnier than the first.
With the sequel about to hit theaters, we took a look at the funniest jokes and a few one-liners from the first movie. Here are the best of the best.
