Show Dogs

That Summer

Deadpool 2


Ryan Reynolds returns as the R-Rated Marvel mutant mercenary, who this time assembles an X-Men team including queer members Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), girlfriend Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna), and Shatterstar (Lewis Tan) to combat a cyborg named Cable (Josh Brolin). Just as filthy and even more meta than the first – Deadpool calls Cable “Thanos” at one point, referencing the Marvel villain Brolin plays in Avengers: Infinity War – GLAAD has already praised the film for its LGBT inclusiveness. (May 18, Fox)
