Deadpool changed the landscape of the superhero genre when it released in 2016. It brought an unprecedented amount of humor and gore, the likes of which we hadn’t seen in any superhero film. Thankfully, 20th Century Fox has allowed them to go back to their roots and give them a bigger budget to produce a sequel that definitely looks like it’ll be just as good, if not better, than the first. Here’s your first look at Deadpool 2!
While we haven’t received an official synopsis, attached to the video was one that we’re about 99% sure is legit, but decide for yourself, below:
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.
If that doesn’t scream Deadpool 2, I don’t know what does. Everything about this from the trailer to the synopsis to the new poster (pictured) is everything you could ever want from a Deadpool sequel. Josh Brolin looks fantastic as Cable and while we had only one scene, Zazie Beats looks like she’ll do Domino justice!
We’ll have to see if it lives up to the original when it releases on May 18, 2018.
So far, all signs point to yes.
