The first teaser for “Deadpool 2” (OK, it is actually still an untitled flick, but go with it) is here and all we can say is: WTF?
Ryan Reynolds spends the majority of the little over two-minute clip, titled “Wet on Wet,” channeling the “Joy of Painting” host Bob Ross, just to make sure we knew the “Deadpool” sequel is going to be even weirder than the first film. But, clearly, even more awesome.
Reynolds also takes a brief break to give us an actual glimpse at the film, which included our first real look at Josh Brolin’s villain Cable in action.
Deadpool suits up as the big-haired painter from old PBS instructional videos, who always goes into extreme detail about what he’s painting. However, when he starts rambling about really wanting some cocaine, we cut to the real tease.
Brolin’s Cable, Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and Deadpool’s landlord, Blind Al (Leslie Uggams), all show up in the teaser. We even get a look at co-star Julian Dennison in action for the first time too. But this thing moves so fast it’s hard to tell what’s up.
Also, here is the tagline that came with the teaser, which includes zero real info: “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.”
“Deadpool 2” is set for release on June 1, 2018.
