However, all anyone can say is that it’s just Deadpool in a Pikachu costume.

Every time it speaks I think “why is Pikachu talking like Deadpool?”

Hundreds of Tweets are saying the exact same thing, and it looks like it’s going to be quite difficult to differentiate between the two movies. Hopefully, we can suspend our disbelief for the duration of the movie.
To me Reynolds will always be the sassy leather covered anti hero that we know him for.
