“Deadpool 2” drops a hype worthy Trailer

Yesterday, the internet got a heaping new dose of everyone’s favorite merc with the mouth. Yes, a new Trailer for Deadpool 2 was dropped, giving us another comic book sequel to eagerly anticipate (after the Super Bowl spot earlier this year). The original, long in development, proved to be a surprise smash hit, revitalizing Ryan Reynolds as an A-list star, doing incredibly well on the precursor circuit, and nearly even scoring an Oscar nomination. Now, we’re about two months away from the sequel hitting theaters, so the promotional train is in motion. You’ll be able to see the Trailer at the end of the article, but first…let’s see what our friend Deadpool has been up to and what he might be doing next, shall we?

The film is likely to be just as meta and tongue in cheek as the last. For example, this is the actual synopsis that Twentieth Century Fox put up on IMDb: “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.” Obviously, it’s a joke, as this will just be following the further psychotic adventures of Deadpool (Reynolds), his lady Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), friends Dopinder (Karan Soni) and Weasel (T.J. Miller), roommate Blind Al (Leslie Uggams), as well as fellow mutants Colossus (voice of Stefan Kapicic) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). This time, they’ll be joined by Cable (Josh Brolin), as well as Domino (Zazie Beetz), plus others. David Leitch is in the director’s chair this time, helming a script by returning scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Also in the cast we have Terry Crews, Julian Dennison, Eddie Marsan, and more. Tyler Bates provides the score, while cinematography is by Jonathan Sela (who just did the impressive camerawork in Atomic Blonde). Look for this to be a blast.

Looking at the Trailer, this should be more of the same formula that made the first one a hit, just with a larger scale, as well as the emergence of Cable. If you loved Deadpool, then Deadpool 2 should be right up your alley. If it didn’t do much for you, that likely won’t change here. That being said, you better get used to Reynolds playing this role for the foreseeable future. This is now a fully formed franchise, with X Force on the horizon in the next few years, besides other solo Deadpool outings, and presumably cameos as well with the X-Men and their franchise. The merc with the mouth is here to stay.

Below, the Trailer for Deadpool 2 awaits your eyeballs. It looks like a lot of fun, which is to be expected. Reynolds has really found his comfort zone here, and one Golden Globe nomination later, this could really end up his signature role. The perfect marriage of actor and part, he’s a strong reason why this works like it does. Throw in Leitch as director, and he’s likely to up the action quotient, coming from the world of Atomic Blonde and John Wick. It all adds up to a film worth waiting for. Take a gander at the Trailer and begin counting the days until mid May, when the movie opens…

Here now is the Trailer for Deadpool 2:

Stay tuned for plenty more on Deadpool 2 between now and its May 18th release date!
