Ryan Reynolds is bringing his foul-mouthed mutant mercenary back to the big screen in just a few shorts months, and the Deadpool 2 marketing campaign is turning out to be every bit as absurd – and hilarious – as its predecessor. In the latest trailer, the Merc With the Mouth throws shade at Justice League while Josh Brolin’s Cable scowls and shoots his way through everything in his path.
The second half of the trailer promises plenty of action, with guns, explosions, an apparent prison riot, and plenty more. Atomic Blonde director David Leitch seems like a great fit for this material, and supporting characters like Domino (Zazie Beets) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) seem like they’ll have plenty to do. Also, is that Terry Crews flanking Deadpool in the helicopter shot?
Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18.
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.
