Two years ago, Deadpool made history with its President Day weekend opening, which raked in $152 million in the U.S. box office and $284.5 million globally over its first three days in theaters.
In total, the long-awaited movie featuring the Merc with a Mouth rung in $783.1 million while it was in theaters, making it the highest-grossing Rated R film of all time.
It’s not a shock to anyone that Deadpool 2 is even more highly anticipated than its predecessor.

Most famously, Deadpool’s Bob Ross parody, which Reynolds tweeted out in November, which featured the Regenerating Degenerate showing off his watercolor skills before “technical difficulties” led to a few scenes from the sequel, before cutting back to the artist whose canvas now shows a Thanksgiving dinner scene with all of the characters from Deadpool 2, including Cable.
If you haven’t seen it, well, you’re in for a treat.

The few scenes fans got to witness didn’t disappoint; there was the supercharged violence which was to be expected, but the biggest question was how Cable would fit into the new flick.
