Six weeks after we officially met Josh Brolin’s Cable (and Zazie Beetz’s Domino, and …), Fox has released a second full-length trailer for Deadpool 2 that’s everything fans could have hoped for, and more.
That includes the official arrival of X-Force, and its naming, and confirmation that Cable’s mission is to find the kid played Julian Dennison from Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Yes, he’s the Fox sequel’s “Hope.”
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill 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 flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
However, the trailer wasn’t accompanied by a new synopsis. Apparently the sequel is sticking with the one above, about Wade Wilson’s quest to become Mayberry’s hottest bartender, etc. Hey, it works for us.
