A new trailer has finally arrived for the much anticipated sequel to 2016’s Deadpool. The Merc With The Mouth takes center stage in the trailer and the trailer looks pretty fantastic. It is chock full of violence and nonsense and some pretty fun profanity. But the most surprising thing is the Deadpool 2 trailer name drops X-Force.
Check it out below:
What is the most surprising thing is the name drop for X-Force. Apparently, X-Force will be formed by Deadpool in Deadpool 2 to take on Cable and Black Tom Cassidy. For those who do not know, in the comics, X-Force was formed by Cable as a more proactive strike team to take on threats against mutant kind in a more lethal way that the normal X-Men team would not do. The team has had many different members including Deadpool and has also been lead at one point by Wolverine. It is interesting and pretty fun to think Deadpool will be the one to be forming the team instead of Cable.
Deadpool 2 is directed by David Leitch and stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Josh Brolin as Cable, Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Julian Dennison as that kid.
Wisecracking mercenary Deadpool battles ninjas, the yakuza and a pack of aggressive canines as he embarks on a new adventure.
Deadpool 2 will hit theaters on May 18th.
