The New 'Deadpool 2' Trailer Is Completely Bananas

It looks like the sequel is gearing up to be even better than the original.

This May's upcoming Deadpool sequel has already been blowing early audiences away, and from the look of the first full trailer, it's easy to see why—the thing looks completely bananas.

The two-and-a-half-minute trailer, which dropped Thursday morning, is full of everything we've come to expect from a Deadpool movie, and then some. Blood? Gore? Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants references? It's all here. A quick shot of Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) grabbing a fistful of Colossus ass and then dicking around in Professor X's wheelchair? Of course. Josh Brolin decked out as Cable, a time-traveling badass sent to kill a kid like a slightly chattier Terminator? Oh, yeah. They've even finished his CG arm this time.

The trailer also introduces us to X-Force, the "super-duper fucking group" that Wade puts together to fuck Cable up, which includes Terry Crews and Zazie Beetz. Apparently, this movie will also serve as an unofficial origin film for the new team of Marvel heroes, since a stand-alone X-Force movie is already in the works with Cabin in the Woods's Drew Goddard at the helm.

Deadpool 2, which is directed by David Leitch and based on a screenplay from Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, will hit theaters on May 18. And the sequel has already been pulling in near-perfect numbers at audience test screenings this week, scoring even higher than the original—between that and this new trailer, there's plenty to get excited about between now and May.
