Following the release this morning of a Flashdance-inspired teaser poster, Fox's Deadpool 2 is determined to trigger a flashback with its first collection of cast photos.
Taking a page (literally?) from a yellowed yearbook, the DeadpoolCore promotional website depicts head shots of Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson and his co-stars, clad in matching sweaters, each emblazoned with the character's name. Who knows, maybe this what class pictures look like at Charles Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.
Fittingly, Deadpool's photo is largest, orbited by small images of Neena (that is, Domino), Nate (Cable), Althea (Blind Al), Vanessa, Jack (Weasel), Petey (Colossus), Ellie (Negasonic Teenage Warhead) and Dopinder.
Although many fans were disappointed that a trailer for Deadpool 2 didn't air Sunday during the Super Bowl, the movie’s Twitter account hilariously live-tweeted Sunday’s big game. We shouldn’t have to wait much longer to see new footage, however, as the full-length trailer is expected to arrive next week with Marvel’s Black Panther.
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 features Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and Karan Soni as Dopinder, with newcomers Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Julian Dennison in an unknown role, and Jack Kesy as a villain widely thought to be Black Tom Cassidy. The film hits theaters on May 18.
