Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 Trailer #1 (2018) *They Will Call Us X-FORCE!*


The insanity that is Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool will be back for more on May 18th, 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.  This is the first trailer that actually reveals much about the film’s plot, which looks like the genesis for some X-Force films (the taxi driver is back and so is TJ Miller, that’s all I need to know).  FOX 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 three weeks after Avengers….why does no one ever release films in August….WE WILL STILL GO!!!).  DP2 will have a lot of work to do to top the first installment, but the thing about sequels is, they generally open MUCH bigger than the original, so expect a new record for an R-Rated film opening.

*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. I feel like Neo after he harnessed the Matrix for the first time. All I can say is, Whoa. I don’t care how talented Kasdan and Howard are, their heyday was four decades ago. Solo will be terrific, I’m sure of it, but it stands no chance.

      1. I hope the end of the line isn’t coming for Star Wars.

        If I were in charge of this at Disney, do you know what I would do? I would invent a time and a place in the SW galaxy that are distant from the Skywalker saga, that have never been seen before in fact, and create a trilogy that has all the broad strokes (lightsabers, the Force, mythical archetypes) but none of the specifics (the characters, the Empire, not even Jedi or Sith). I would make a trilogy of films that were totally new. Not tonally (I would make the tone match the original trilogy, I would make them fairly dark in fact) but in terms of content. I would create a Star Wars myth for OUR times, but I would do it by respecting what had gone before, not by going the Johnson way.

      2. I think that’s what they think they’re doing by giving both Johnson and the GoT team trilogies. Johnson may well do a lot better free of the confines of the Saga, because most of the problems, aside from the absurd Canto Bight detour, that I have with TLJ are things that wouldn’t be that big a deal removed from the Saga.


      3. It isn’t the end of the line with Star Wars land about to open; no, even if Solo sucks and bombs (it will not get close to the lowest grossing SW film which is Ep II’s $303 million approx.), it’s been pretty clear from the lackluster way it’s been marketed that Disney abandoned this project awhile ago and just wrote it off. That doesn’t mean they’re writing off the whole show. Does that mean I know how JJ can fix things in IX? No clue. I don’t know if this bodes well for more “Star Wars Stories”. But, they’re not going to write it off. It’ll still make $150 domestic easily and after 10 films, almost any franchise has a financial bomb. I’ll freely admit, my SW enthusiasm is at its lowest since before Disney bought Lucasfilm, but we can’t just say it’s over. The possibilites are endless, and if the original Saga isn’t what I hoped it would be after VII, then I’ll keep it at III – VI, which was what I was doing before all this started.

      4. Yeah, but I don’t want SW turning into the DCEU or even ST. SW was always better than that. Even with the ambivalence surrounding the prequels (did you see what I did there? I used a diplomatic word), Lucas created something special, he had a vision that connected with me, and I could stand behind all six of his films with sincere conviction, because even if the films contained those terrible romantic scenes, I genuinely liked what Lucas did.

        I have a lot more faith in the GoT guys than Johnson. Poe’s prank call to Hux…I cannot communicate how much it horrified me. The tone of the movie was waaaay off. It wasn’t just the humor, either. The film did not feel like a myth, just an action movie. Star Wars at its worst still always felt like a myth. The way ahead is unclear, but I’m pretty sure Disney needs to ditch the numbered episodes, end the stories of the Skywalkers and the People Who Knew Them, and start finding other places for myth making.

  2. Hey I’m a new blogger and would be grateful if you could spare 5 minutes to check out my recent post on Infinity War and see what you think? Thanks

    1. Right on the kid; wrong on the director. DP2 is directed by David Leitch; Ragnarok’s helmer was Taika Waititi. With all the superhero films, even I had to check.
