With just about 3 months until the release of the still untitled Deadpool sequel (some have aptly titled it Deadpool 2), the marketing team (with help from Ryan Reynolds) has churned out another teaser, this time featuring Cable (Josh Brolin).
Taking a page out of post-apocalyptic movies and a dig at the Justice League mustache fiasco, this second Deadpool 2 teaser (following the Bob Ross-inspired teaser from November and the No Good Deed short from in front of Logan) introduces the one-armed futuristic mercenary to Deadpool’s world – with an NSFW nod to Toy Story, too. There are also glimpses at the army of baddies (the DMC – likely Department of Mutant Control) and Julian Dennison’s unnamed mutant character, as well as allies Domino (Zazie Beetz) and a blink-and-you’ll-miss-him Terry Crews, and the returning Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), Blind Al (Leslie Uggams), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Weasel (T.J. Miller), and Dopinder (Karan Soni). As for the plot … there’s something reminiscent of a prison break, more fighting mayhem, and a few F-bombs. We’ll likely learn more in the first proper trailer coming next week, and we’ll hopefully see some of Black Tom Cassidy (Jack Kesy) and Eddie Marsan’s unnamed character then.
Deadpool 2, from stunt coordinator-turned-director David Leitch and returning writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, hits theaters on May 18.
