Deadpool 2: The Final Trailer delivers the goods and a quick jab at DCEU


There’s a lot for me to like about this Deadpool 2 final trailer.  Let’s dive in!

I’m very excited about the inclusion of Domino and Shatterstar; these two characters give me hope that maybe someday, we’ll get an X-Factor movie (a story from the Peter David catalogue, PLEASE), but I just like them and I think their personalities will mix well with what they’re doing in these Deadpool movies.

Meanwhile, Deadpool keeps on DPing cause that’s what he does.  I see Cable as somebody to have around to help further the plot (because Cable’s backstory is complicated) and being the new gruff dude in the X-Men movie universe now that Hugh Jackman is done playing Wolverine.  (Until the recast him in the main X-Men series, which, I guarantee you, is only a matter of time.

But yeah, I’m glad this second installment is sticking with what works. “So dark… you sure you’re not from the DC Universe?”  SICK BURN.  Take that, DCEU!  This is exactly what I want from this series.

I think it would be fair to say I’m excited to see Deadpool 2 even though the first one didn’t capture my imagination the way it did for some folks.  I was particularly surprised by a low rewatch value when it was on cable – the plot just wasn’t that interesting.  Maybe that won’t be the case here.

After all, Peter’s on board, so what could be more exciting?
