Although the majority of us have to wait a few more weeks to see Deadpool 2 when it hits theaters on May 17th, early screenings reactions for the film have cropped up on social media. The initial reactions are very favorable (Source: Independent), with many critics claiming Deadpool 2 is even better than the original:
I didn't like the first Deadpool. DEADPOOL 2 beat me into submission until I was actually enjoying myself. Also it features my now favorite post credit scene.

Liked DEADPOOL 2 way more than the first. Smarter, funnier, and with 100% more Ricky Baker.

Oh man, Deadpool 2 is really good fun. All the hilarity and self-awareness of the first film but it also manages to be quite subversive and weirdly sweet. Thoroughly enjoyed myself (also you’re gonna wanna stick around for those post-credits). pic.twitter.com/CVaSAqvE0v

I didn't absolutely love the first Deadpool, but man, Deadpool 2 does the trick for me. Hilarious when it needs to be, surprisingly touching when it needs be (not in that way, gross), and is kinda the best X-Men-universe flick in forever. Also: DOMINO RULEZ. pic.twitter.com/vEZsgzFo4W

Happy to report 'Deadpool 2' is a lot of fun and had me laughing beginning to end. Stuff after the credits is *awesome*. All the people added to the film were perfectly cast. Avoid spoilers. Always makes it a better experience. pic.twitter.com/4Q3Kr1ARPh

I liked DEADPOOL 2 more than the first one (which I wasn’t a huge fan of). Slow to start but all the stuff with X-Force and Cable (and Peter!) works surprisingly well.

#Deadpool2: I’ll say this, it earns the hell out of that R rating. And the cameos. And the post-credit scenes.

We were pretty hyphy for the movie before and now these early reactions have us wondering just what happens in the post-credits scene that makes it the “best one ever done to date in any superhero movie.”
Deadpool 2 reviews hit the internet/media on Monday and the film itself hits theaters on Thursday, May 17th.
