Deadpool 2 Cable Trailer Breakdown: Terry Crews, Domino, And More In New Movie's Teaser
Surprisingly, a trailer for the Deadpool sequel dropped recently. The upcoming film will be coming to theaters this spring, and fans of the comic book character will finally get to see his counterpart, Cable, on the big screen for the first time. Much like the first movie, Deadpool 2--which is not the official title--will continue its over-the-top and silly sense of humor, which was apparent when we saw the teaser and the recent movie poster.
The sequel stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool and introduces Josh Brolin as Cable. In addition, it adds Zazie Beetz as Domino and features Morena Baccarin, TJ Miller, and Brianna Hildebrand reprising their roles from the first movie.
Deadpool 2 will come to theater on May 18. It was originally going to release in June but Fox changed the date and then pushed the upcoming horror X-Men film The New Mutants to 2019. The new trailer for Deadpool 2 is a bit crazy, but here's everything we learned about Deadpool 2.
The Future... It Sucks
The trailers opens with Cable looking at a desolated city. From the exterior scenes, we can see that his story starts in the future. In the comics, Cable--the son of Cyclops and a clone of Jean Grey--was infected with a techno-organic virus by Apocalypse. Because of this, Cable was taken to the future to be saved and raised. As you can assume--because we're talking about comic books--the future sucked.
What's Up With The Teddy Bear?
This may be a bit of a stretch, but the teddy bear could be a clue about Cable's story. In the comics, Hope was the first born mutant after the Decimation storyline. She was about to be killed by the terrorist group The Purifiers, who hate mutants, but she was saved by Cable. He believed Hope would save all of mutantkind, so he became her protector. However, there were others, like Bishop, who traveled back in time to kill Hope, in order to prevent an even worse future from happening. The teddy bear could be Hope's from when she was a little girl.
Is this story convoluted and insane? Yes, but a strange and dense plot like this may fit into the world of Deadpool. Considering this story is such a big part of Cable's comic book mythos, there's a good chance it could appear in the movie, especially when the word "Hope" appeared inside the phone booth in the original teaser.
That Green Arm
The first part of the trailer is pretty serious, with Cable saying, "I was born into war. Bred into it. People think they understand pain, but they had no concept of it. What's the most pain you ever felt? Maybe the kind that leaves you more machine than man?" It's like every super-serious trailer we've seen the past few years, but as you'll notice, the CG on Cable's arm isn't completed. Deadpool stops the trailer and says, "It's a metal arm. It's not like we're going to remove a mustache." Take that, Justice League.
This Feels More Like A Deadpool Trailer
Deadpool's trailer takes a drastic turn as the Merc with a Mouth decides to act out the movie using action figures, using Cable to stomp through the streets. "I'm Cable, and I'm from the future, and I like blowing s**t up! Pew pew pew pew." This is the trailer Deadpool fans deserve. Also, there's a 99.9% chance none of this will appear in the movie.
Deadpool Loves Pixar
Deadpool, dressed as Woody from Toy Story, yells, "Reach for the sky." This is Woody's opening line from the movie. Again, this won't be in the movie, but it's pretty awesome.
Deadpool Really Loves Toy Story
Just like Andy in Toy Story, Deadpool writes his name on the bottom of his toy's feet.
It's hard to tell from the trailer while it's playing, but if you pause at the right time, you'll notice Cable has a force-field around him while being shot by the DMC guards (more on that later). That's not one of his mutant abilities--although he does have telekinesis. The force-field is just some classic future-tech.
Brick By Brick
There's a brief shot of Deadpool about to smash someone's face with a brick. It looks like Wade Wilson ended up in a mental facility. Is he breaking someone out or is he a patient?
Domino Is Here
We catch a quick glimpse of Zazie Beetz as Domino, and she's about to smash someone's face as well. Once again, this looks to take place in a mental facility.
Negasonic Teenage Warhead--Now With Longer Hair
This is the only shot of Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and she has longer hair. Hopefully, Deadpool makes some more teen angst jokes.
Team Deadpool... X-Force? Is That Shatterstar?
In the image above, there is Domino, Deadpool, and three other people--one of which is played by Terry Crews. We didn't know he was in the movie before, and while every fiber of my being wants him to be playing Bishop, his outfit reminds me of X-Force member Bedlam, a mutant who is skilled in covert ops that can create a bio-electric field around him. Or it could be G.W. Bridge, a former merc who worked with Cable.
Based on the quick glance we get, the character between Domino and Deadpool looks like Generation X member Chamber, who shoots energy out of his chest. The person between Deadpool and Crews is too hard to make out, and it almost looks like the person is wearing a helmet that looks a whole lot like Shatterstar's. He was an early member of the X-Force that originated from Mojoworld, which is a whole bizarre thing on its own.
Who Or What Is "DMC?"
A few times during the trailer, Deadpool and Cable can be seen fighting people with "DMC" on their clothing. No, they are not taking about Darryl McDaniels of Run-DMC. Expanding upon the Hope theory from earlier, this may be a group that is trying to round up and take down mutants, which was the start of Hope's story. Could DMC stand for "Department of Mutant Control?" Government agencies trying to destroy mutants has been a major part of the X-Men movies. No, Deadpool isn't a mutant, but he sure does hang out with a lot of them.
Breaking The Fourth Wall Returns
Of course, a big part of Deadpool is his ability to talk directly to the viewer. We see Deadpool turn to the camera and say, "That's just lazy writing," after Cable busts into his home and says, "Time's up, you dumb f**k." Apparently, Deadpool 2 will be everything we loved about the first movie, and a whole lot more.
Deadpool 2 will come to theaters on May 18.
