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?
