Marvel understands they've out-grossed us with too many superhero movies, so now they're branching it out. Ant-Man was an attempt at comedy, and now with Deadpool, they're spoofing the genre. It works splendidly during the opening credits, and dialogue scattered across (Deadpool breaking the fourth wall, Deadpool confusing the McAvoy/Stewart X-Men timelines) helps towards that goal, but the film-makers still couldn't avoid a repetitious action ending with mutants hurling their superpowers at each other - while a huge tongue-in-cheek joke could've ended the movie with a blast. How they'll blend the vulgar Deadpool with other X-Men stories, is beyond me.
