It seems like no more than a month has past since we last got a look at Deadpool 2. And that's because it was. Oh, but how time flies! We were introduced to the Merc with a Mouth's new friends Cable and Domino, along with some old friends, including Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Colossus, and Blind Al. Now, the final full-length trailer has arrived, and we have an even better look at Josh Brolin and Zazie Beetz after initial test screenings asked for more of their characters. In addition to the aforementioned old friends and ones we knew about, we're also introduced to some new faces.
The new trailer for Deadpool 2 is about the same length as the very first trailer, but a little bit more in depth. All the cards are laid on the table for our crew of misfits, which is equally more intense and funny than what we first saw. Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson is back, leading his team, that he calls X-Force. Though not everybody is so sure that he's the right person to be the leader of the group, which is made even more obvious in this teaser footage. Terry Crews is featured front and center, possibly playing Bedlam, since a picture is briefly seen with that name on it. Plus, his suit coloring matches that of Bedlam. It also looks like they're bringing in Surge for X-Force along with IT's Bill Skarsgard as another character.
As for the two trailers coming out so close together, it seems that 20th Century Fox might be tackling some damage control after initial rumors of poor test screenings and bad reviews from moviegoers who supposedly signed Non-Disclosure Agreements. The trailer seems to go out of its way to address the situation with Wade Wilson and Weasel discussing how great a certain sequel is. These unconfirmed sources claim that Deadpool 2 wastes an original character from the first movie with a story that doesn't really go anywhere. The unconfirmed reports also state that the sequel makes a joke out of the main villain. Again, these are all unconfirmed reports, and even if they are true reviews, they are one person's opinion. The second trailer doubles down and takes the hype level up considerably for Deadpool 2.
In a conflicting report, Deadpool 2 has tested three times, with the first screening scoring a 91 and the second a 97. The final test, which was held in Dallas, featured two separate cuts of the movie, one scoring a 98 and the other scoring a 94. The first movie scored a 91, which means that the new cuts are earning near-perfect scores, outdoing the original. It was also reported that members of the crew were in attendance for the Dallas screenings, which some compared to "watching the Super Bowl." Plus, there's rumors of a new cameo that are hyping the sequel up even further.
When it comes down to it, the test screenings don't mean anything for a fan that was already going to see Deadpool 2 anyway. The test screenings were reportedly off the charts for Justice League and we all know how that turned out. Plus, the Deadpool franchise isn't exactly the normal type of superhero movie. A negative test screening reaction almost fits better with the movie, showing moviegoers that wouldn't normally see it what the Merc with a Mouth is all about. While we wait for May 18th to come around, check out the brand-new trailer for Deadpool 2 featuring X-Force below, thanks to 20th Century Fox.
