So, the Merc with a Mouth is back at it again!
Over the past few weeks, a number of images teasing Deadpool 2 have reached the internet – including a painted scene detailing the main characters gathered around a table for Thanksgiving dinner!
However, that was merely the appetiser, as it turns out – or, should that be appe-teaser? – as we were gifted with the first teaser trailer for Deadpool 2, and it’s every bit as…Deadpool-y as you’d imagine.
Check it out, below, though we must warn you, it’s certainly NSFW material;
The “Wet on Wet” teaser puts everyone’s favourite regenerating degenerate into the role of TV art legend Bob Ross as he paints some “masterpieces” – all whilst apparently being “high as a kite”.
And if the teaser wasn’t enough for you, Fox have also released the first official ‘synopsis’ of the upcoming movie, though it isn’t exactly what you’d call sensible.
Here you go;
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.
There’s everything in there, from references to The Andy Griffith Show to Back to the Future, to ninjas, the Yakuza, and a bad case of “when animals attack”, everything except a hint as to what the Hell fans can expect.
Or maybe that is what happens in the film. Hmmm…
Deadpool 2 is directed by David Leitch and sees the return of Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, TJ Miller as Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Karan Soni as Dopinder, and Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and sees series newcomers Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Julian Dennison in an unannounced role, and Jack Kesy as a villain who we’re lead to believe is Black Tom Cassidy.
Deadpool 2 opens in cinemas everywhere 1st June 2018
