LOS ANGELES, Feb 9 — A new Cable-centric trailer highlights Josh Brolin as a delightfully vicious Nathan Summers, just your average cybernetic mutant soldier and villain to our titular masked hero.
As expected, the clip is a two-minute piss-take of the highest order.
Case in point: “People think they understand pain, but they have no concept of it,” growls Cable. “What’s the most pain you’ve ever felt?” Commence punching and shooting.
Deadpool 2 hits cinemas on May 18.
For now, here’s the “official synopsis” for the film, courtesy of 20th Century Fox’s YouTube channel:
“After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfil his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavour — finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.”
