Ryan Reynolds is back as the foul-mouthed superhero in David Leitch’s Deadpool 2. Wise cracks, f-bombs and punches abound in the action-packed trailer for the the 20th Century Fox film, which sees the anti-hero face off against a new villain: the time-travelling mutant Cable (Josh Brolin).
The sequel to the 2016 hit Deadpool will be released on May 18 in the USA. The movie also stars Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz and TJ Miller, among others.
When he takes on the mission to rescue a child from Cable, Deadpool creates a super team of teens, called the X Force. “Doing the right thing is messy,” Deadpool says in the trailer. “But if you want to fight for what’s right, sometimes you have to fight dirty. And that is why Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is pure pornography.”
Deadpool 2 is the 11th movie in the X-Men franchise. Deadpool (his real name is Wade Wilson) was first introduced in the Marvel comic books as a disfigured mercenary with self-healing properties. The 2016 Deadpool was a critical and commercial success, becoming the highest grossing R-rated film ever.
