Ryan Reynolds addresses 'Deadpool 2' criticism on fridging, calls it 'fair'

Deadpool was guilty of it when Vanessa was kidnapped by Ajax and then guilty of it twice in the sequel — Vanessa was killed by nondescript bad guys and Cable's wife and child met their ends at the ends of an evil Firefist in the future. So while the film was popular and made progress in some areas, many were disappointed with the repeated fridging and voiced it online.
