Just for weeks after the release of the previous one, Fox has debuted another trailer for Deadpool 2. Not that fans are complaining. But given that the first trailer introduced Cable and Domino, and the second officially formed X-Force, what could possibly left for the third — and final — one? A lot, actually.
Timed to coincide with tickets going on sale, a month ahead of the premiere, the new trailer sets up a convoy heist to rescue Russell, the mysterious young mutant played by Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople), and stages an old-fashioned team roll call that introduces at least some of X-Force — namely, Terry Crews’ Bedlam, fan-favorite ’90s superhero Shatterstar, Zazie Beetz’s Domino, and some poor guy named Peter, who’s almost certainly doomed to die.
But there’s also plenty of room for action, as well as for Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With a Mouth to get in (more) good-natured digs at Josh Brolin’s role as Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and at the darker tone of the DC Extended Universe.
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.
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and Karan Soni as Dopinder, with newcomers Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Julian Dennison in an unknown role, and Jack Kesy as a villain widely thought to be Black Tom Cassidy. The film hits theaters on May 18.
