The marketing campaign for Deadpool's upcoming sequel has been pretty brilliant to date, keeping every major plot point under wraps while still teasing us with enough of the character's trademark sarcasm to keep things interesting. I'll let you decide if that was a good thing or a bad thing, as we're now officially getting a trailer with plot details. So welcome to the world post-this new Deadpool 2 trailer. And yeah, that Untitled Deadpool Sequel thing was just a ruse. It's called Deadpool 2. So people don't get confused, I guess. Seriously though, you guys couldn't even muster a Deadpool Number 2? Though I guess Zoolander and Jackass already did that.
You know what else is hilarious? Air Supply. Seriously, look at those two doofuses (that probably bagged more snazz than the rest of us combined)...
What was that, the cover of their album "The Higher the Hair, The Closer to the Lord"? But I digress, Deadpool 2.
We know that Cable's after a kid—who looks suspiciously like Peter Parker's buddy Ned from Homecoming—and Deadpool's assembling the X-Force to deal with him. There's also a heaping helping of Morena Baccarin's Vanessa in this trailer, which leads me to believe that Fox is either trying to discredit the recent rumors that she ends up being another "woman in a refrigerator" plot device, or they're leaning into that twist by trying to prove she's in more of the movie. I call the second option as she's wearing the same outfit every time you see her in this trailer, which means she's likely dead meat.
Oh well, it still looks funny and zippy and full of everything we loved about the first Deadpool. Aside from that awfully uncreative new title, though, I'm sold. Deadpool 2 opens on May 18.
