20th Century Fox just released a teaser video for Deadpool 2 (not the official title for the film currently officially referred to as the “Untitled Deadpool Sequel”) complete with an extended look at the film’s major villain, Cable. The two-minute video’s titled “Deadpool, Meet Cable” and features some intense action scenes, the humor we expect from the Merc with a Mouth, and a nice jab at Justice League.
Ryan Reynolds reprises his role as Wade Wilson/Deadpool in the sequel directed by David Leitch (Atomic Blonde). The Deadpool 2 cast also includes Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers/Cable, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and TJ Miller as Weasel.
20th Century Fox will release the Deadpool sequel in theaters on May 18, 2018.
The first live-action Deadpool film was a huge win for 20th Century Fox, with the R-rated comic book-inspired film grossing more than $132 million during its first weekend in domestic release. The action comedy directed by Tim Miller from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick opened in theaters on February 12, 2016 and went on to gross $420 million in foreign markets, ultimately collecting $783 million worldwide over the full course of its theatrical run.
The “Not Real But It’s What Deadpool’s Sticking With” Plot: 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.
