Deadpool 2 Trailer Promises Bigger and Better

After surviving a near-fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef named Wade Wilson struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of…okay, that’s not actually what Deadpool is about. Not that I wouldn’t pay to see that movie. It sounds fascinating.

As for what the sequel to the 2016 R-rated surprise smash will actually be about, well…this trailer looks like more of what made the first movie so great. Just add more ingredients to the recipe and mix a little longer before pouring. And some great action sequences. Wow, do these action scenes look good. Deadpool 2 looks like the first movie dialed even higher and I can’t say that’s a bad thing.

Instead of intense bartending, Deadpool 2 pits the titular hero against Josh Brolin’s Cable, who has traveled back in time seemingly to slaughter a vulgar pyromaniac child. No wonder Wade relates to him. Looks like Cable whips our hero’s ass at some point and forces him to seek out allies. This leads him to form X-force. Which also hints at Cable not being the big baddie since he was the leader of the X-force during their original run.

Who will make up this X-force? Do you really care once you see Terry freaking Crews?

While initial test screenings for Deadpool 2 weren’t so hot, the latest are getting even better reactions than the first movie. The trailer itself says it lives up to the hype. After watching it, it’s hard to believe this won’t at least match the enjoyment factor of its predecessor.

Deadpool 2 releases on May 18 as part of the great early-2018 superhero onslaught emptying our wallets.
