The First Teaser for the ‘Deadpool’ Sequel Is as Absurd as One Could Want
After months of heightened anticipation, we’ve finally have our first look at footage from the upcoming Deadpool sequel… sort of.
WARNING: The following video is decidedly NSFW.
In keeping with the franchise’s meta-tone, Fox did not release a typical teaser trailer for the film. Instead, they hid about 10 seconds of action footage within a crude yet on-point parody video of The Joy of Painting. Ryan Reynolds – in character as Deadpool – gives a spot-on impression of host Bob Ross, complete with the irreverent humor and sexual innuendo one would expect from the R-rated character.
Along with the teaser, a humorous plot-synopsis for the film was also released.
Last week, Good Housekeeping teamed up with the marketing team for the sequel to release a special Holiday-themed poster for the film (see below).
The as-yet-untitled Deadpool sequel stars Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T. J. Miller, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapičić, Zazie Beetz, Josh Brolin, and Jack Kesy. The David Leitch-directed film is scheduled for release on June 1, 2018.
