Last week’s rumours that Deadpool 2 was testing “really poorly” were debunked earlier today with a report that the upcoming superhero sequel had actually been scoring higher with test audiences than its 2016 predecessor, and now we’ve got some more good news for fans of the Merc with a Mouth.
As noted by Trailer Track, Thursday is set to bring us a brand new trailer for the hotly-anticipated sequel, which runs for 2 minutes 32 seconds. According to the site, said trailer will be with us at 1pm UK/9am ET/6am PT.
The news was made official by the X-Men Weibo account, which comes with a notice which, when put through Google Translate, is appropriately bonkers:
“Tomorrow will be released # # Deadmen 2 # latest notice. In the new notice, a large number of new heroes have struck! ! ! This new character comes on stage to open a new story for ## The tip of the FANS Come and guess the identity of these few people. It’s time to prove that you’re a senior deathguard powder.”
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill 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 flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
