What Peter W. lacks in superpowers he certainly makes up for in sheer courage.
Coming out of Deadpool 2‘s final trailer, Rob Delaney’s decidedly human side-kick – an Average Joe amongst Average Joes – emerged as something of a fan-favorite, not least because his dedicated Twitter feed has brought us that little bit closer to the would-be superhero ensemble known as the X-Force.
And so, we have Domino (Zazie Beetz), Bedlam (Terry Crews), Shatterstar (Lewis Tan) and Zeitgeist, the acidic-spewing anti-hero to be played by Bill Skarsgard of It. On paper, there’s not much room for a power-less human like Peter, but that doesn’t stop him from applying for the X-Force nonetheless – an application that the Merc With a Mouth quickly green-lights, resulting in the moment when Rob Delaney’s supporting player is hurled out of a cargo plane in order to intercept a precious convoy.
Indeed, it’s that scene that anchors this newly-released TV spot for Deadpool 2, which serves as perhaps the perfect follow-up to that raunchy promo (see below) from earlier this morning.
Yes, it seems Wade Wilson’s latest gig will involve a discount stripper costume and some pole dancing, which is exactly the kind of zany, tongue-in-cheek humor we’ve come to expect from Ryan Reynolds and his R-rated franchise.
Hell, the actor was even credited for his contribution to the Deadpool 2 screenplay, proving that he’s still very much invested in the Merc With a Mouth and all of his shenanigans – so much so, in fact, that he spends his downtime crashing Hugh Jackman’s birthday videos. Look for DP to return in all his foul-mouthed glory on May 18th.
