The movie has a few named female characters (Vanessa, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Domino and Yukio), but none of them interact with each other except for Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Yukio. Even then, it's really just a few remarks (barely even a conversation I would say) all of them about Wade.

What about the old blind grandma(not sure what her name is but I know she is named)? She talks to domino when Deadpool is growing his legs back.

to be fair, this movie is all about deadpool, there's barely a conversation without him involved

Deadpool 2 should fail. Warhead and Yuki talk to each other and it’s not about a man. It’s about their relationship thus a technical pass. Note: violates the point of the bedchel test to pass though as they are talking about a romantic relationship — just not with a man. So this still should be a fail. Original test was about women only existing for romance. Sorry Yukio you only exist to be warheads love interest

@Tkarrde I think that women talking about their relationship counts in the spirit of the Bechtel test as well as the letter. It is about how they have any existence outside of the men in the film.
