Almost two years ago, back in 2016, Deadpool took the movie world by storm with a comic book film unlike any that audiences had seen before.
An R-rated superhero film unlike anything that had come before it, Deadpool breathed a much-needed new life into the comic book film industry with self-awareness, swearing, and R rating. In fact, the original Deadpool was so hilarious, that some people, myself included, consider it more of a comedy than an action film.
Now, after two years of secrecy, details about the film slowly but surely leaked out, with the first trailer finally dropping today!
The “official” synopsis for ‘Deadpool 2’:
Wisecracking mercenary Deadpool battles ninjas, the yakuza and a pack of aggressive canines as he embarks on a new adventure.
While Deadpool 2 works just fine for us, we would have liked to see something like “Deadpooler”, “Deadpool: The Sequel” or “Deadpool Number Two”.
Deadpool 2 is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Deadpool, distributed by 20th Century Fox.
It is intended to be the eleventh installment in the X-Men film series and a sequel to the 2016 film Deadpool. The film is being directed by David Leitch from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, with Ryan Reynolds starring in the title role alongside Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapičić, Zazie Beetz, Josh Brolin, and Jack Kesy.
It is scheduled to be released on May 18, 2018.
