A month shy of Deadpool 2’s premiere, 20th Century Fox has released the final trailer for the film.
The footage introduces some new characters to the clan. After several rounds of interviews, ‘Wade Wilson’ hires ‘Beldam’, played by Terry Crews, and ‘Shatterstar’, played by Lewis Tan, to his “super duper f***ing group.”
He also enlists a regular guy named ‘Peter’, who only signed himself up because he “just saw the ad.” The underdog has already become a hero in the eyes of fans; shortly after the trailer got out, the character—who has an actual Twitter account—has already earned himself a large social media following.
Notorious for breaking the fourth wall, anti-hero ‘Deadpool’ finds no shame in mocking DC and Marvel.
In one scene, he calls ‘Cable’—who is played by Josh Brolin—‘Thanos’, as the actor takes on the latter role in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War.
When ‘Cable’ undermines ‘Deadpool’s position as a superhero, ‘Wade’ replies, “So dark! You’re sure you’re not from the DC Universe?”
Deadpool 2 hits screens on 18 May. Get your daily dose of wisecracks in the snarky trailer below.
