From the studio that killed Wolverine, 20th Century Fox has released the final full-length trailer for Deadpool 2, and its a gooden. There is plenty of new footage on offer and a closer look at Wade’s X-Force team that includes Terry Crews as Bedlam, Zazie Beetz kicking ass as Domino, Lewis Tan as Shatterstar and Rob Delaney as my favourite new character, the un super-powered Peter. His name’s just Peter, but his brief appearance at the end of the trailer has tickled my funny bone no end.
In fact, Peter has his own Twitter account (verified) and it’s ruddy hilarious. An avid Beekeeper and loyal husband, Peter’s Twitter account is essential reading if you’re in need of a laugh.

Not only does Deadpool name check Josh Brolin’s Cable as Thanos, but there’s a killer burn for the DCEU and a callback to X-Men Origins Wolverine. The previous trailers fell a little flat for me, thankfully this final (apart from the many TV spots) trailer brings the funny.
Joining Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin and the X-Force team are Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Stefan Kapicic, Brianna Hildebrand, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, and Hunt for the Wilderpeople’s Julian Dennison. Deadpool 2 thrusts its way into cinemas on May 18.
After surviving a near-fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfil 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.
