The trailer for Deadpool 2 has finally been released.
There is a new antagonist in the shape of the time-travelling guns-blazing Cable.
Secretly the child of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and the Phoenix (Jean Grey), Cable is set to be a hilarious foil for the quippy anti-hero played by Ryan Reynolds.
Fitting the fourth-wall breaking of the first film, Deadpool throws some major shade at DC.
‘Why are the visual effects not done? It’s a metal arm! It’s not like we’re trying to remove a mustache!’ he says.
This is in reference to the poor attempts to remove Henry Cavil’s mustache in Justice League.
Deadpool also references Toy Story and The All-New Super Friends Hour.
But will the superhero have a boyfriend in the sequel?
Will pansexual superhero Deadpool get a boyfriend in the sequel?
When the first film was released in 2016, Reynolds said he ‘loved’ the character is pansexual.
‘I love that he can break any boundary,’ he said. ‘In the future, I hope we get to do that more.’
On getting a male love interest, he said: ‘I certainly wouldn’t be the guy standing in the way of that. That would be great.’
Producer Simon Kinberg said the filmmakers wanted to honor the character’s sexuality in the first movie and were definitely open to showing Deadpool with a boyfriend in a future installment.
‘We did in subtle ways, there’s veiled references to it in this film,’ he said. ‘It’s in the DNA of the character.’
The sequel will be released on May 18.
