Josh Brolin in Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 Teaser #3 (2018) *Meet Cable*

The insanity that is Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool will be back for more in May, but this time with his partner: bounty hunter for the future and perpetual crankypants – Cable.  Josh Brolin is pulling heavy superhero duty between Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War in May.  The marketing for this film has been utter nonsense, which is just what it should be as nothing says total absurdity quite like Deadpool or a world in which a Deadpool franchise is a huge success.  FOX (presumably with Disney’s permission) has jumped Deadpool 2 from opening the week after Solo: A Star Wars Story to now opening May 18, 2018 (the week before Solo and two weeks after Avengers….why does no one ever release films in August….WE WILL STILL GO!!!).  Given the pedigrees of the films, the fan base reactions, and the timing….I’m not sure Deadpool 2 won’t open bigger.  Discuss.

*from Coming Soon
Ryan Reynolds is reprising his role as the Merc with a Mouth alongside Zazie Beetz as the luck-manipulating mutant Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable, the time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops. Jack Kesy (The Strain, Baywatch) is attached to play the film’s central villain, which, while unconfirmed, is rumored to be Irish mutant Black Tom Cassidy. Japanese actress Shioli Kutsuna and Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) have also joined the film in mystery roles.

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.

Other stars returning from the first Deadpool include Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus.

  1. Oh so many choices of bad-ass movies. 😀 … remember when there were … well, not ‘none’ but close to it. 😀

    I wonder if they’re betting Solo won’t go the distance and the Merc will steamroller right over the top of him? … still a short-sighted decision … unless … gasp … no, they wouldn’t … it can’t be! … I wonder …


  2. If Solo has been a normal production, and Disney thought they had a dud on thier hands, then sure, I could see them cutting thier losses. But the cost overruns on Solo have got to be in the astronomical range. I have to believe they want to recoup as much money as possible. Maybe they think it all came together, and they really have something? Maybe the safe-to-the-point-of-being-boring trailer was just an overreaction to complaints that TLJ did not feel like SW?

    Or perhaps Solo is SO bad that it needs to be swept under the rug lest it drag down the whole franchise? That it needs to be buried, at whatever monetary cost to the studio? Hey, everyone! Look over here! Deadpool! Avengers! Yeah!


    1. Unfortunately I suspect it’s the latter because the business sense isn’t there to support a sure fire hit. Moving Deadpool 2 up shows huge confidence in that film. Im going in with no hopes or expectations. My analysis is that it will be the lowest grossing film in franchise history.
