The "Merc with a Mouth" will return to theaters in May.
20th Century Fox has released a new playfully meta teaser trailer for David Leitch's Deadpool 2, fully introducing viewers to Josh Brolin's Cable. The movie is now set to premiere on May 18, 2018, after being bumped up from its original June release.
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.
Check out the trailer below!
Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson / Deadpool, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers / Cable, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Stefan Kapicic as Colossus. The movie comes from director David Leitch with a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
Other upcoming movies in 20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise include Simon Kinberg's X-Men: Dark Phoenix starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner, and Jessica Chastain which is set for a November 2, 2018 release; and Josh Boone's The New Mutants starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, and Alice Braga which is set for a February 22, 2019 release.
Likewise, the studio's long in development Gambit film starring Channing Tatum is now due to arrive on June 7, 2019 -- though there is currently no new director signed on following the previous departures of Gore Verbinski, Rupert Wyatt, and Doug Liman.
