The official trailer for Deadpool 2 will arrive in cinemas next months, alongside Marvel’s Black Panther, after having dropped online on the date of the two-year anniversary of Deadpool’s release.

With the Merc’s sequel scheduled for release in mid-May, just two weeks after Marvel’s superhero team-up, Avengers: Infinity War, it makes sense that the official trailer will make its first outing with the first superhero event of 2018.

As yet, all we’ve seen of the Deadpool sequel has been in the form of a bizarre teaser, where Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) does a great impression of the late Bob Ross, before we are treated to a rapid-fire collection of shots which featured many key characters of the first movie, along with a glimpse at newcomers like Hunt for the Wilderpeople’s Julian Dennison.

However, it appears that we’re not far away from a full trailer. Due to be released online on Valentine’s Day, the Deadpool 2 trailer will then debut in the previews during Black Panther, as from it’s February 16th release in the US – though it’s UK release is February 12th, so whether we will also see the trailer remains to be seen.

What fans have been waiting for, is our first real footage of Josh Brolin’s Cable and Zazie Beetz’s Domino in action. The teaser does feature a couple of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearances from both, though hopefully the full trailer will give us a little more of the pair to sink our teeth into.

The Deadpool sequel doesn’t have an official title at the moment, and so could feasibly be called Untitled Deadpool Sequel (as is its IMDb title) in keeping with the franchise’s sense of humour and self-awareness. The sequel has also seen a change in director, from Deadpool helmsman Tim Miller, to Atomic Blonde director (and uncredited John Wick co-director) David Leitch, which will guarantee sharp, stylised action sequences. Hopefully, the trailer will offer a clearer picture of the direction Leitch is going with Deadpool 2.

Deadpool‘s sequel is set for release on May 18th in the US, and June 1st in the UK.
