5 Movies Like Deadpool 2: Crass, Irreverent Heroes

The Merc with the Mouth is back on the big screen in Deadpool 2 and we couldn’t be more excited to see him in action again – and if you’re in the mood for some more movies starring crass, irreverent heroes, Itcher has you covered. Here are 5 movies like Deadpool 2.


KICK-ASS (Matthew Vaughn, 2010)

An R-rated action comedy that subverts superhero tropes, dropping as many F-bombs as it does bodies? Nicholas Cage as a murderous vigilante that dresses like Batman but kills like The Punisher – and has a glorious moustache? Kick-Ass was an unexpected (and appreciated) kick in the teeth for audiences back in the day and it’s still pretty fun. Deadpool is cool and all, but last we checked, he didn’t have a jetpack.

BLADE (Stephen Norrington, 1998)

It may not be an irreverent comedy like Deadpool, but Blade has R-rated action thrills to spare – and a main character just as fond of dispatching his enemies with swords and guns. Half-vampire, half-human, Blade has dedicated his life to ridding the world of vampires and looking cool as hell while doing it.

DEADPOOL (Tim Miller, 2016)

Duh, right? The original Deadpool was a monster hit a few years ago, easily standing out amongst the very crowded superhero genre thanks to its no-holds barred vulgarity and fourth-wall breaking, as well a perfectly cast Ryan Reynolds. Maybe you need a refresher course before seeing the sequel, or maybe you just missed it the first time around – either way, you’re in for a good time.

KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE (Matthew Vaughn, 2014)

Another Matthew Vaughn joint based on another Mark Millar comic-book, Kingsman is for superspies what Kick-Ass and Deadpool are for superheroes. It’s fun, it’s crass and it subverts the tropes and cliches of its kin while also happily indulging in them. The epic church fight scene alone makes this a must watch, but the rest of the movie is also quite fun.

HANCOCK (Peter Berg, 2008)

An often forgotten gem of a superhero comedy, Hancock stars Will Smith as drunk Superman. The movie doesn’t quite live up to how great its premise is, but it’s still an enjoyable and absolutely atypical superhero film.
