May of 2018 is going to be absolutely brutal on the wallets of moviegoers. Avengers: Infinity War, Solo: A Star Wars Story, AND Deadpool 2 all come out within those 31 days. To make matters more absurd, those three tentpoles are all generally produced by the same company, though Deadpool 2 is an arguable exception (for now).
Speaking of the Merc with a Mouth, the first “real” trailer for his movie was released this morning, and as expected, it’s both hilarious and excellent.
Not much actual footage from this movie has been released so far — this trailer contains some of the first brief clips anyone has ever seen. We got Negasonic Teenage Warhead, we got Deadpool’s blind roomie, we got a half-second of Love Interest winking, but the most important part of this is what took up the trailer’s majority: the Merc promised us Cable in the sequel, and today he delivered. Though his armor is a work in progress.
Deadpool 2 will be released May 18, 2018.
