Fox’s “Deadpool” was not only a surprise box-office hit, but also the not-so-surprising toast of torrent sites.

In its rundown of the most-pirated films of 2016, TorrentFreak reports the Ryan Reynolds action-comedy was the clear winner, outpacing the likes of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Suicide Squad” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” for the dubious honor.
