In New "Deadpool 2" Trailer, Everyone's Favorite Antihero Squares Off Against Cable

The new supervillain is almost ready for his closeup

Fans have finally been treated to a full-length trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to 2016's Deadpool, the Marvel comic-book adaptation that went on to become the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time. The clip begins in dramatic fashion, with Josh Brolin's Cable gravely intoning, "I was born into war, bred into it." When the supervillain is finally revealed, he's missing his metal robot arm, prompting Ryan Reynolds to break the fourth wall -- as is his wont -- and exclaim, "Why are the visual effects not done? It’s a metal arm! It’s not like we’re trying to remove a mustache!" Following the gratuitous shot at Justice League, the action eventually picks up in earnest, including a quick X-Force cameo. Check it out below, and expect Dead Pool 2 to hit theaters on May 18.
