Deadpool Trailer Breakdown And Easter Eggs: Terry Crews' Role Revealed
The latest Deadpool trailer is here, and it is crazy. The new video is jam-packed with new characters, new plot points, Easter eggs, and someone that looks a whole lot like Lindsay Lohan. That couldn't really be her, could it?
Although director Tim Miller isn't returning to the series, as he left due to creative differences, David Leitch helmed the upcoming film, and you may remember him from John Wick. Joining Leitch alongside the movie's star Ryan Reynolds is Josh Brolin as Cable and Zazie Beetz as Domino.
Of course, Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), Weasel (T.J. Miller), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Blind Al (Leslie Uggams), and Dopinder (Karan Soni) all return for the sequel, and you can see them in the newest trailer. We also finally learn who Terry Crews is playing.
So what's going on with this new video? We're breaking down the new things we've learned about Deadpool 2, along with some Easter eggs and connections to the comic books, primarily weird stuff from the '90s.
Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18.
Dopinder continues to be Deadpool's personal driver for the sequel, and he seems to have a beefed-up role this time, as we get to see a few shots of him outside of his taxi. He continues to idolize Deadpool and his work, and seems more loyal than ever in the new film.
Deadpool is headed to Japan. There are two scenes within the trailer--one of which takes place in a bathhouse--in which Deadpool is killing people in Japan. Early on, he cuts off a gangster's head. You can tell he's a gangster because he's wearing sunglasses inside, at night.
Believe it or not, Deadpool is huge in Japan, and one of the merc with a mouth's best moments you missed is when he interrupted the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer in Japanese cinemas to promote his own film.
We don't think Deadpool wearing high heels is a reference to anything in particular, not even Marvel's Lady Deadpool--who didn't wear high heels anyway. It is very impressive that Deadpool can do a backflip while wearing the shoes without falling over, though.
Deadpool enters his and Vanessa's home and says, "I was rounding all the gluten in the world and launching it into space where it can't not hurt us ever again." This is a reference to the 1987 film Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. In that movie, Superman gathers the world's nuclear weapons in a giant net and throws them into the sun.
Why is Cable here? What does he want? The new trailer reveals that Cable wants to kill a child, probably because it affects his future, and Cable thinks it will be for the betterment of mankind. Deadpool isn't cool with Cable's plans and wants to stop him.
The kid in question we saw in the first trailer flips off the camera. He's wearing what seems to be a control collar and a yellow jumpsuit.
Cable easily takes down Deadpool in the next scene. Wade Wilson is wearing the same yellow jumpsuit as the kid Cable is hunting. We saw these jumpsuits in the first trailer, as they have something to do with the group "DMC." At this time, we do not know for certain what that means.
Normally, when a studio puts out a movie, it builds hype by letting the audience know, "here are two other movies you probably like that we've also made, so you know this new movie is going to be good." The Deadpool 2 trailer decides to promote Katherine Heigel's 27 Dresses and Anne Hathaway's The Devil Wears Prada, two movies that couldn't be more different than Deadpool 2.
There is another shot of the kid Cable is after. He's played by Julian Dennison, and in this scene, he's created an explosion and set some police cars on fire while his skin glows orange. We don't know who exactly he's playing yet, but we're betting it's Sunspot. He's an extremely powerful mutant whose powers are primarily solar-based.
Negasonic Teenage Warhead is back, and she has a friend. The newcomer to the movie is actress Shioli Kutsuna. Both of these mutants will be joining Deadpool on his journey.
Colossus is back as well. Stefan Kapicic reprises his role as the voice of the Russian mutant, and in this scene, Deadpool gets a nice butt squeeze in.
Deadpool will be spending some time in the X-Mansion for the new film. Well, at least enough time to take a spin in Professor X's chair. Hopefully, this time, there's more than two members of the X-Men inside the mansion.
Terry Crews punches a guy on the ground. We briefly saw him in the first trailer and guessed he'd be playing either Bedlam or GW Bridge. More on that later.
Negasonic Teenage Warhead's friend is back again, and she's swinging a chain around her head, which is now electrified. Because of her powers--as well as the "X" logo on her right shoulder--we're thinking she's playing Surge. The character is a member of the New Mutants from Japan, who has to wear gauntlets to control her electrical powers.
Could this "Peter" be Pete Wisdom? This character is a mutant from England who wears a suit and tie to work everyday because he's a member for the British government organization Black Air and later because the leader of MI:13, the group that deals with superhuman threats. Wisdom can absorb solar radiation and create thermal knives that are hotter than the surface of the sun.
In addition, Terry Crews is confirmed as playing Bedlam, as his picture is here too.
While on the plane with Domino and his other teammates, Deadpool says they're going to call the team "X-Force."
There is another shot of one of the other members of X-Force, not the guy with the mustache. In the last breakdown, we thought this could be Chamber, but now, we're not so sure.
Deadpool pops out of a casket during a funeral and shoots everyone up. We're not sure who these people are, but the older woman--sitting down--looks like Cloris Leachman, and the woman standing next to her sure looks like Lindsay Lohan.
In the final scenes of the trailer, we see Deadpool crossing some police tape, wearing a mesh shirt with an X on it. While it's not exact, it really reminds us of what X-Force member Rictor used to wear during the '90s. We can expect to see a lot of '90s X-Force references in this movie.
