took my expectations, blew them up and regenerated as a top tier superhero movie loaded with filthy laughs, an unstoppable force of a team and more heart then it probably should have,” said another.

Additionally, lucky early viewers seem to be enthralled with the film’s post-credit scene.

“Safe to say it features the best post credits scene EVER. I’m still recovering,” People’s Nigel Smith wrote on Twitter, while Uproxx’s Mike Ryan added, “Also it features my now favorite post credit scene.”

“Deadpool 2” will see Ryan Reynolds reprise his role as Wade Wilson/the merc with a mouth when it hits theaters next week. Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz and T.J. Miller also star.
