Cable is here and he is so not ready to be Wade Wilson's best friend in the newest trailer for Deadpool 2 (opens in new tab). This doesn't mean Fox has finally settled down and made a normal trailer for a Deadpool movie; the meta-commentary continues as Deadpool complains that the visual effects for Cable's robotic arm aren't finished yet - including a jab at the Justice League movie's questionable mustache removal technique (opens in new tab).
There's still a lot more Actual Movie in this teaser than that bizarre 'wet on wet' Bob Ross parody trailer (opens in new tab), though, which… I mean, I guess it's a good thing. But I think I might like all the weird non-sequitur skits even more than seeing a bunch of action-packed scenes from the movie strung together to a throbbing soundtrack.
Still, I can't complain about getting a proper, moving-images introduction to Josh Brolin as Cable, and a much better look at Zazie Beetz as Domino. New director David Leitch, director of Atomic Blonde and co-director of John Wick, has done a deft job of punching up the action as well. The original movie wasn't lacking in spectacle - that car crash fight scene remains a pinnacle of superhero cinema - but now the sequel has a fair shot at outdoing it.
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (opens in new tab) fans should really appreciate how well Deadpool puts a frying pan to use in close-range combat, for example. Wade Wilson makes it to the top 10 of every match.
Deadpool 2 is scheduled to debut on May 16, 2018. While you're waiting for the wisecracking-est merc to hit cinemas once again, make sure you read the official Deadpool 2 plot synopsis that almost certainly has nothing to do with the actual movie (opens in new tab).
