The Merc with the Mouth is back! Deadpool 2 is one of the most anticipated superhero sequels of all time, and the fan community are all breathlessly waiting for the film to be released in cinemas.
Deadpool took the world by storm in 2016 after ‘leaked’ teaser footage drove fans wild. A look at what could be done with the character drew critical and fan praise from around the world and enabled Fox and Marvel to play nicely and pave the way for a full blown Deadpool film.
Ryan Reynolds is the star who made the magic happen, and his performance was nothing short of brilliant. Deadpool 2 looks to be equally as entertaining as Wade Wilson takes on more action and adventure.
With Avengers: Infinity War just around the corner, it looks like Marvel’s stock has never been higher, especially with the global success of Black Panther which is still cashing-in at the box-office.
Let’s take a look at what we know so far about Deadpool 2.
What is Deadpool 2 about?
The official synopsis for Deadpool 2 is hilarious…
‘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 flavour – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.’
Jokes aside, expect Deadpool to band together with new mutants to form X-Force while taking down yet another threat. If he feels like it.
Who stars in Deadpool 2?
The movie stars Ryan Reynolds (The Hitman’s Bodyguard) along with returning cast members Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Stefan Kapicic as the voice of X-Men favourite Colossus and Brianna Hildebrand as the fantastic Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
It looks like the supporting comedy is well represented too with Karan Soni back as Dopinder, the hapless taxi-driver who seems to always be driving Deadpool around town and Leslie Uggams as Blind Al (who will look to steal all of her scenes once again – check out her great line in the trailer)
Josh Brolin plays Cable aka Nathan Summers, the fan-demanded character from the X-Men universe who will make his anticipated big screen debut here. Julian Dennison comes in straight from his global success on Hunt for the Wilderpeople to have a major role here too.
