20th Century Fox just jumbled up its entire release schedule for the next year. We’ll get to the other changes in a bit, but one of the most peculiar is a newly revealed PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2, taking the place where James Cameron’s Battle Angel Alita was originally meant to go (December 21).
First off, let us warn everyone that this newspost contains BIG FAT SPOILERS for Deadpool 2, even more than our movie review did. So if you haven’t seen Deadpool 2 yet…get out of here, seriously. You’ve been on the Internet long enough that you should know better than to click things like this. Bookmark it for later.
As I sit down to right this review of Deadpool 2, I can’t help but think…how can I write this without spoiling some of the best twists in movie history? Ok, maybe I exaggerated that a little bit, but much like Infinity War a few weeks ago, Deadpool 2 brings some big surprises in both large and small-scale to deliver a surprisingly deep film. To be fair, I don’t think it’s better than the original, but it’s definitely a good film and doesn’t suffer from sequelitis.
If you haven’t seen it yet (and seriously, how have you not seen it yet?), the final trailer for Deadpool 2 has come out, and with it, another look at the X-Force, Deadpool, Cable, and all the jokes you could want and more. Deadpool sure isn’t shy about its jokes, Easter Eggs and 4th wall breaking, but that doesn’t mean you should expect them all in the final cut. For according to director David Leitch, some of them have to be left on the cutting room floor:
The release of Deadpool 2 is now precisely one month away — May 18. That means we get one more trailer, but according to the title and thumbnail, today’s two and a half minute sneak peek is the very last one. What a pity — we were having so much fun together, but all things must come to an end. That being said, it would be just like Deadpool to pull a “Final Trailer After The Final Trailer” stunt. We can only hope.
At the end of the first Deadpool movie, a very special end credits scene stated that the time-traveling mutant Cable would be coming in the sequel. The world was shocked when Josh Brolin, who is the voice of Thanos in the coming set of Avengers films, would also be playing the fan-favorite mutant. Deadpool 2 trailers have shown him off to good effect, and reshoots even happened because early screening audiences wanted to see more Cable in the film.
No matter how rainy it is outside or how much work you get swamped with, a day that starts out with a new Deadpool 2 trailer is always a good day.
Today, the first official trailer for Deadpool 2 aired, and it brought a lot of laughs, a lot of fun moments, and a lot of Cable, which is what fans all over wanted to see. But, there’s still a lot of questions about what’s going on in the film, and how much bigger the overall scope and scale will be. After all, the original film had to make due with less than $80 million dollars of budget, and some things were noticeable because of that. But due to its massive success at the box office, that’s clearly not going to be the case.
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).
Yep, you read that right, the second film that mains the fan-favorite Merc with a Mouth has officially wrapped filming. This comes from the co-writer to the film. Which will bring joy to a lot of fans, as they’re waiting desperately for Deadpool 2 to arrive.
Comic book movies are filled with Easter Eggs and references to characters in the comics. Even if they themselves don’t appear, it’s nice to speculate if they ever could. For example, take Vanessa from Deadpool, played by Morena Baccarin, she in the comics is a shapeshifter known as Copycat, who was indeed Wade Wilson’s girlfriend when he got cancer.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are hard at work making Deadpool 2, the sequel to the popular “R” rated superhero movie. With Deadpool 2, the cast is going to get bigger, and one of the biggest editions is the arrival of fan-favorite characters Domino and Cable. Cable has yet to be cast, but Domino did get confirmed to be played by actress Zazie Beetz.
