It may not have an official name yet, but what we currently call Deadpool 2 has sure kept up the fun for us at it lumbers towards cinemas. Now we have the chunkiest trailer yet.
Naturally it delivers the usual Deadpool vibe, so from a so-why-so-serious introduction to bad dude Cable to a fourth wall effects WTF break it’s hilarious.
As is the synopsis, which we suspect may not be entirely accurate… “After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfil 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 flavour – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.”
But there’s more to the trailer. That shot above – who are these people? At left is Domino (Zazie Beetz), and we have a fair idea who the dude in red is. But the other three? Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has confirmed that it is indeed the X-Force – or at least parts thereof. Which is interesting, as they usually sided with Cable.
Ah, Deadpool – come for the yuks, stay for the nerdy comic book lore stuff.
May 16 is the day to red pen Deadpool 2 (or whatever it’s called) into your Australian diary. Or hey, write it on that big blank spot on your left arm…
Here’s the trailer. Needless to say – but we have to say it – LANGUAGE WARNING!
