At the end of February, Deadpool defied all expectations when it toppled box office records and became Marvel's boldest contribution to the superhero world. Weeks after Wade Wilson introduced us to his R-rated world, the movie had earned a colossal $300 million at the box office.
And guess what? It's time to reiterate once again that there's no end in sight to the Marvel juggernaut's success. It's almost mid-March and it's being reported that the superhero flick has just reached a whopping $700 million milestone. Boom!
Remind yourself of why this is perhaps one of the best superhero movies of all time with the epic red band trailer below:
You'd think that coming this far, there would be no more records for the movie to break. Alas, Deadpool only needs to surpass $742 million to beat 2003 sci-fi blockbuster The Matrix Reloaded, which currently holds the title for the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time. Do you think it will do it?
Is 'Deadpool' deserving of all of this success?
