20th Century Fox’s second Deadpool film now has a real trailer, or as “real” as Deadpool would tolerate. Deadpool 2, which doesn’t seem to have a catchier subtitle yet, brings back Ryan Reynolds’ merc with a mouth superhero (Green Lantern, RIPD) and his girlfriend Vanessa, played by Morena Baccarin (Firefly, Gotham), with the returning support team of Colossus (Stefan Kapicic), Negasonic Teenage Warrior (Brianna Hildebrand), Weasel (T.J. Miller), Blind Al (Leslie Uggams)–and that taxi driver. The sequel to the #2 highest Rated R box office moneymaker of all time introduces the fan-favorite borg from the comics, Cable, to the Marvel movie realm, and this trailer shows Josh Brolin looks to be the perfect casting choice.
The two new trailers were hijacked by Deadpool, as was the promotional summary for the film, which really says it all:
“After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.”
The movie also has a new teaser poster mocking 1983’s Flashdance. The international trailer is an edited version from the U.S. release, with an added glimpse of Colossus. Check out both trailers of the new trailers for Deadpool 2:
And that’s Zazie Beetz as another new character in the Marvel films, Domino.
Of course the trailer is 10 times better than it would have been without the addition of Bruce Broughton’s theme from Silverado.
Look for the Deadpool sequel in theaters May 18, 2018.
