“Deadpool 2” introduces Josh Brolin’s villain character Cable in the latest trailer for 20th Century’s summer tentpole. “I was born into war, bred into it. People think they understand pain, but they have no concept of it,” says an intense time travelling cybernetic mutant soldier Cable.
But once Ryan Reynolds’s goofy, snarky superhero Deadpool sees Cable’s arm looking like an unfinished green screen, he interrupts the introduction. “Why are the visual effects not done? It’s a metal arm! It’s not like we’re trying to remove a mustache!,” an obvious dig at the digitally removed mustache of Henry Cavill in Justice League.
With the exception of Cable’s introduction, the title character’s trademark wisecracks and quick shots of returning characters from the original, the trailer is light on plot details overall. Which in this age of spoilerific trailers and adverts can only be a good thing.
The Canadian actor has been teasing fans with various images from the film since production. Yesterday was one of those days, releasing the film’s hilarious and strangely amusing “Flashdance” inspired new poster on Twitter.
Directed by David Leitch, from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool 2 also stars Morena Baccarin, T. J. Miller, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand and Jack Kesy.
Deadpool 2 is set to storm theaters this summer on May 18.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
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.
