According to TorrentFreak, Deadpool (20th Century Fox, February 2016) was pirated more than any other movie in 2016. That’s something we might expect to be brought up by Deadpool himself.
Released in February 2016, Deadpool made a massive $783 million at the worldwide box office against a budget of just $58 million, according to Box Office Mojo. The sequel is supposed to be out in 2018.
“While file-sharers may have a slight preference for geeky films, in general there’s a high correlation between piracy and box-office sales,” TorrentFreak reported (via Entertainment Weekly).

- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
