The latest trailer for Deadpool 2 has arrived and it introduces the concept of X-Force… even if it is derivative.
Deadpool 2 has some huge shoes to fill after the success of the first film, and while there is plenty of humor to be had in this new footage, it’s also pretty clear the action has been amped up as well. And the fake blood budget also seems to be a bit higher.
Recent reports out of a test screening indicate that the film is testing well, and judging by the trailer alone, we’re inclined to agree that we’re in for a heck of a ride. And if this does well, we imagine the X-Force movie won’t be too far off, but you have to wonder if it is actually more of a Deadpool 3. Either way, we’ll take it.
We do suggest you take the latest ‘official’ synopsis with a grain of salt…
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.
Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18.
