Breaking Down the New Deadpool 2 Trailer

Author Thumbnail BY Jon Arvedon - March 22, 2018

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:

#1- That 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.

#2- Heads 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.
