‘Deadpool 2’ Final Trailer Digs at DC Universe

Ryan Reynolds’s Deadpool is forming a “super duper f—ing group” in 20th Century Fox’s final trailer for “Deadpool 2.”

The action-packed footage, released Thursday morning, sees the Merc with a Mouth coming together with Zazie Beetz’s Domino and T.J. Miller’s Weasel to defeat the powerful Cable, played by Josh Brolin.

Deadpool doesn’t miss the opportunity to poke fun at Brolin’s villainous double-duty this summer in both “Deadpool 2” and “Avengers: Infinity War.” (“Pump the hate breaks, Thanos,” he prods.)

Later, Cable calls Deadpool “a clown dressed up as a sex toy,” to which he responds, “So dark — are you sure you’re not from the DC universe?”

The new trailer also introduces audiences to Peter, who is looking to join Deadpool’s coveted X-Force team.

So what is his superpower? “I don’t have one,” the character, played by Rob Delaney, tells Deadpool and Weasel. “I just saw the ad.”

The superhero sequel — also starring Brianna Hildebrand, Morena Baccarin, Leslie Uggams, and Stefan Kapicic — follows Deadpool’s team of mutants as they protect a young boy (Julian Dennison) from Cable.

David Leitch directed the film from a script by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Reynolds. The original film went on to gross $783 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time.

“Deadpool 2” hits theaters on May 18. Watch the trailer above.
