RED BAND TRAILER WARNING….SERIOUSLY…..I AM NOT KIDDING…..OK, WARNED YOU.
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.
