DEADPOOL 2 Is Officially The Highest Grossing X-MEN Movie Of All-Time Following China Release

Regardless of whether you love or hate them, Fox's X-Men movies have found a lot of success at the box office over the years. However, all of those now pale in comparison to the Merc with the Mouth...

The X-Men franchise has mostly been very successful at the box office and while Deadpool previously held the record for the highest grossing X-Men movie, the sequel has now topped it. 

Deadpool 2 was released last May but following the release of the PG-13 rated Once Upon A Deadpool and the Merc with the Mouth's Chinese debut, it managed to hit the $784 million mark at the worldwide box office. The first instalment earned $783 million but it's worth noting that the movie did that without being re-released or having a theatrical run in China. 

Something that's clear now is the fact that whatever Disney and Marvel Studios does with the X-Men, Deadpool will live on. 

While the franchise could be rebooted, it wouldn't make much sense to do that as Ryan Reynolds is the big draw here and a new version of the character would more than likely be rejected by the majority of moviegoers. It's also hard to escape the feeling that the actor pushed for a PG-13 version to prove to Disney that the Merc doesn't necessarily need an R.
