First DEADPOOL 2 Trailer Teases Josh Brolin as Cable
Cable and Deadpool, together at last.
20th Century Fox has released the first teaser trailer for the still-untitled Deadpool sequel, starring Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool/Wade Wilson and Josh Brolin as Cable/Nathan Summers.
The two-minute trailer opens in dramatic fashion with Cable's left cybernetic eye opening and glowing. "I was born into war," Cable says in a voiceover as we see him gearing up for battle, possibly in the future. "Bred into it. People think they understand pain, but they have no concept of it. What's the most pain you've ever felt? Maybe the kind that leaves you more machine than man."
Suddenly, Deadpool interrupts the trailer after noticing that Cable's left cybernetic arm is unfinished. "Wait! No, stop!" he interjects, pressing pause on the trailer and showing a close-up of Josh Brolin's green sleeve to be replaced with CGI. "What in the actual ass?! Dale! Why, why, why are the visual effects not done? It's a metal arm! It's not like we're trying to remove a mustache! Ah, fuck it -- I'll do it myself..."
We cut to a homemade city replica comprised of colorful construction paper houses, miniature Hot Wheels cars, and plastic green army men. Deadpool brings Cable's action figure down into the city street and pretends to be Cable, saying gruffly "I'm Cable, and I'm from the future, and I like blowin' shit up."
Deadpool then brings in a Deadpool action figure, dressed as Sheriff Woody from the Toy Story movies. "Reach for the sky!" exclaims the Deadpool figure, quoting Woody's catch phrase.
"Oh, no! Sheriff Deadpool!" exclaims the Cable figure.
"You know, you're a lot taller in--"
"Shut up, you little asshole! Take this!" The Cable figure abruptly attacks the Deadpool figure, knocking him over.
"Regeneration powers, activate!" exclaims the Deadpool figure.
"That's not something you say!" replies the Cable figure.
"Zip it, Cable! I got the stones to help you."
"NOOOOOO!" replies the Cable figure as Deadpool places the Deadpool figure's crotch against the Cable figure's mouth, teabagging him.
"No biting," says the Deadpool figure.
The trailer resumes with completed CGI effects, with Cable facing off against a squad of men in riot gear with shields emblazoned with the letters "DMC" (Department of Mutant Correction, perhaps?)
Various fleeting images follow, including Domino (Zazie Beetz), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Cable leaping over a DMC transport truck, Deadpool and Domino exiting the rear of a military aircraft with what appears to be Bishop and Shatterstar, Deadpool and the cabbie Dopinder, Vanessa Carlysle (Morena Baccarin), and Weasel (T.J. Miller).
In the trailer's final scene, Deadpool and Blind Al (Leslie Uggams) are shown aiming their weapons at Cable, although Deadpool needs to adjust Blind Al's arm so that she's pointing at their target. "Your time's up, you dumb fuck," remarks Cable.
"Well," sighs Deadpool, turning to the camera. "That's just lazy writing."
