The first teaser trailer has dropped for the highly anticipated Deadpool 2. The trailer opens with Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) dressed in a collared shirt and curly wig, spoofing Bob Ross’ The Joy of Painting, except it’s called “Gettin’ Wet on Wet with Deadpool 2.” He’s seen puttering around, muttering about the colors he’s using in his painting (which include “mennen black,” “box office gold,” “doc brown,” “pretty n’ pink,” “silverlicious,” “yellow snow,” “red dit,” and “Betty White”). “God I love cocaine,” he remarks to a painting of a snowy mountain range that suddenly appears after he haphazardly brushes the canvas.
The video then cuts to a 10-second montage of moments in the upcoming film. The fleeting scenes feature Dopinder (Karan Soni), the taxi driver from the first movie; Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) in the iconic yellow-and-black X-Men suit giving someone the finger and generally looking pretty badass; and teasers of new characters, including Zazie Beetz’s Domino, and a new character played by Julian Dennison. It’s literally a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it situation, as the montage is cut so quickly, but it’s worth watching a few times if you’re curious about what the next movie will be like.
Deadpool is up to his usual antics: there’s fire, guns, a truck ploughing into something, rain, explosions, and Deadpool sitting up from a coffin. It all looks pretty promising. Deadpool 2 will hit theaters on June 1st, 2018.
