The newest trailer for 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool 2 arrived today, and from the looks of it, this film is completely doubling down on the raunchiness, violence, and profanity that made the Merc with a Mouth’s original solo outing such a runaway success. However, it also appears to double down on the heavy X-Men lore, which is likely the biggest takeaway for longtime comic book readers.

Follow along with us as we break down the new Deadpool 2 trailer:

1That Seems About Right

Feature Detail

The trailer kicks off with the Merc with a Mouth being pursued by an angry mob before diving headfirst into the backseat of Dopinder’s taxicab. Even devoid of context, this scene feels incredibly appropriate for the characters involved.

2Heads Up

Feature Detail

In case there was any doubt about whether or not Deadpool 2 would be more violent than the original, we’re quickly reassured that the sequel isn’t shying away from bloodshed. In fact, we even see Wade fully decapitate a man with one of his trademark katanas, which is surely just a mere taste of what’s in store for moviegoers this May.
