The Merc with a Mouth is getting into the holiday spirit, as 20th Century Fox has released the first poster (seen in the gallery below) for Deadpool 2 today and it sees the titular hero celebrating Thanksgiving with a number of familiar faces.
Cable, Domino, Weasel and several others are all present here, having a good time and enjoying each other’s company as Wade Wilson prepares to serve some turkey. This brand new one-sheet may not reveal anything at all about the plot of the film, but it’s a cheeky way to remind fans that the highly anticipated sequel is on the way and certainly follows in suit with what we’d expect from the pic’s marketing campaign.
Not only that, but with the promotional gears now turning, it looks like we may not have to wait too much longer for the first official trailer to drop. Though we got a little tease back when Logan clawed its way into theaters, fans have been eager for something from the film itself, and understandably so.
After all, barring the clichéd story of one costumed crusader rushing to save the damsel in distress, Tim Miller’s Deadpool was, for many, a gleefully profane introduction to the Merc With a Mouth, and its impressive $783 million box office haul meant that 20th Century Fox wasted no time in greenlighting a sequel.
Deadpool 2 will be with us on June 1st, 2018. Further afield, the studio has already begun formulating plans for its fabled X-Force movie, which Drew Goddard will write and direct. Both the Merc and Cable – Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin, respectively – are expected to reprise their X-Men characters for the ensemble piece, along with Zazie Beetz as the elusive Domino.
