The final trailer for the upcoming Deadpool 2 dropped late last week, and the internet has been gushing over it ever since.
Within the 2-minute shindig, we get to see more from debuting Domino (Zazie Beetz), as well as confirmation as to Terry Crews character, Bedlam; newbie Shatterstar, and plenty of action sequences featuring Cable (Josh Brolin) as he hunts for “The Kid”.
And, of course, there’s Deadpool.
The action is hard-hitting (literally, in one instance, as Colossus punches something – or someone, hey, Juggernaut?), and the comedy seems to be the same fourth-wall breaking shenanigans that Ryan Reynolds’ promised.
One line, in particular, drew the ire of DC‘s Teen Titans, who took to their Teen Titans Go to the Movies Twitter to tweet to Reynolds personally;
“Hey @VancityReynolds, caught your new @deadpoolmovie trailer. Never forget – before you became a @Marvel character, you were a part of the @DCComics universe. #TeenTitansGOMovie”
Whilst it’s already been done to death to bash Reynolds’ time as Green Lantern – even Reynolds mocked his time as DC’s Hal Jordan in Deadpool – it at least got people talking.
But arguably, the most important thing to come out of the trailer, was the introduction to ‘Peter’, an ordinary individual who saw Deadpool and Weasel’s post for a job – within Deadpool’s X-Factor group – and decided to just go for it.
Peter stole the internet’s collective hearts, and, as one user commented; “If Peter doesn’t make it…We RIOT!”
Quite extreme, but this is the internet, so what can you expect.
Deadpool 2 hits cinemas on 16th May in the UK and is directed by David Leitch.
