Gamers were treated last year with an over-the-top game featuring the merc with a mouth with a Deadpool video game which satisfied fans, as it replicated the comics with the same breaking the 4th wall?experience and loud cracking jokes and nonsense action.

The movie seems to be retaining all the qualities, personality, and action of Deadpool with intense violence, tons of sexual references, and nonsense over the top action.
