“Deadpool 2”: more action, more characters and more drama
Than in its time shot the first “Deadpool”? Graphic cruelty, jokes on the verge of not that decency, but just common sense, an attempt to turn upside down typical for superhero films cliches and, importantly, the ability to cram it all into a low-budget shell without losing enthusiasm.

On Monday, April 29, in Russia started rolling the final picture in the current phase of the marvel cinematic universe- “Avengers: Final” (Avengers: Endgame). Marvel together with Disney went to this 11 years, released 22 films and quite seriously changed the attitude of the community to comics — both classic print and their film adaptations.
