I had my doubts. Usually February is a dumping ground for films unworthy of both award or blockbuster status. We’re beginning the closest thing to an offseason for Hollywood and 2016 looks typically dismal. My skepticism of Marvel Comics & 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool goes far beyond its release date.
