Wild Final Deadpool 2 Trailer Takes Jabs at Avengers: Infinity War‘s Thanos

Josh Brolin is obviously pulling double duty in the Marvel Universe, but we didn’t expect anyone to call him out on it. The in-demand actor will threaten Earth in Avengers: Infinity War next week as Thanos, but he also plays the mutant with the muscle, Cable, in Deadpool 2. Yesterday, Brolin teased that this is just the beginning of Cable’s story. Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) couldn’t pass up the chance to take a dig at the star in the new Deadpool 2 trailer saying of Cable, “Pump the hate brakes, Thanos.”

This trailer has a lot of new footage and is a smorgasbord of what Deadpool does best: crazy cool action sequences and ridiculously raunchy humor. We also get a clearer picture of the storyline. We still don’t know exactly who Russell (Julian Dennison) is, but we know Cable is after him, and Wade is surprisingly dedicated to saving him.

We saw in a previous trailer that Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) appeals to Wade’s warped and tattered heart to help guide the future generation of mutants. We now know, however, that Weasel (T.J. Miller) helps form the plan that will actually unite the off-brand X-Force. The pair put out a simple want ad for people with super powers, and they actually get some qualified candidates because what’s difficult about that? We are introduced to Shatterstar (Lewis Tan) and Bedlam (Terry Crews). We also see Domino’s (Zazie Beetz) interview in which she claims she’s very lucky. We think she possesses more skill there than luck, but that never hurts! Lastly is Peter, who has no discernible skills, but he’s still on the team. Equal opportunity crime fighting.

Deadpool 2 is also packing some serious stunts, like a semi-truck flying through the air. There are some brutal fight sequences between Deadpool and Cable, but Domino is the character that shines. She has laser precision, is skilled in hand to hand combat, and appears to be completely fearless.

The X-Force looks like they’ll give the X-Men a run for their money. At least as far as comedy is concerned.

Deadpool 2 hits theaters May 18.
