Breaking Down the First Full Deadpool 2 Trailer

Author Thumbnail BY Jon Arvedon - February 08, 2018

The first full-length, profanity-packed, fourth-wall-breaking trailer for 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool 2 arrived today, and with it comes our first true look at Josh Brolin’s take on the time-traveling mutant Cable. However, the footage also features appearances from other new characters, plenty of Easter eggs, and a few hilarious jabs at the competition.

Check out our full breakdown of the trailer:

#1- Here Comes Cable

Feature Detail

As the trailer kicks off, we get our first look at Josh Brolin’s Cable in live-action. From the grizzled facial features to the glowing, techno-organic virus-infected eye, everything about Brolin’s look is perfect, and seeing him in action does the character far more justice than static images.

#2- Hope’s Teddy Bear

Feature Detail

As Cable struts down a corridor, we see that heavy-duty weapons aren’t the only thing he’s packing. Also hanging from his waist is a small teddy bear, which we can assume is a reference to Hope Summers. In the comics, Cable saved Hope from being executed by the Purifiers when she was just a baby, as they believed she was an antichrist, while he believed she was a messiah. Whether the bear is just an Easter egg or true foreshadowing remains to be seen.
