Not to be too upstaged by Avengers: Infinity War’s latest trailer, Fox has released a new look at the wacky and madcap Deadpool 2. Previous looks at the movie have mainly been skits of sorts with some brief glimpses of footage, but this official trailer goes a little more in-depth with the premise of the movie.
Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is forming a team, composed of “tough, morally flexible” superpowered beings that are “young enough to carry their own franchise for ten to twelve years.” That includes Domino (Zazie Beetz), and… is that Terry Crews? The newly-formed X-Force is looking to stop the time-traveling Thanos- er, Cable (Josh Brolin) from killing a child (played by Julian Dennison from Taika Waititi’s Hunt for the Wilderpeople).
And it looks like this sequel actually has the budget for the X-Mansion, with Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) returning. The visual comedy and wackiness from the first film looks to be intact, with the high-octane action from director David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde) looking smoother than ever.
Deadpool 2 is dropping onto theaters on May 18.
