The First Trailer For Deadpool 2 Is Hidden In A Bizarre Tribute To Bob Ross

Video: Our first look at Deadpool 2 in action is finally here. But you’re going to have to get through a totally weird, and pretty hilarious, skit to get to it.

Ryan Reynolds has just dropped the first footage from Deadpool 2, but at first you might not realise it. Because the video starts – and goes on for an alarming amount of time – as an extended skit where Reynolds, in character as Deadpool, is… in character as beloved art icon Bob Ross?

Yeah, this is the way to do it. The whole skit is a retro delight, but the trailer itself is all brief snippets of what we can expect from the movie. There’s our first brief look at Zazie Beetz’s Domino, a new look for Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Wade smashing his way through a car, and actually no Cable… but there are guns. A lot of guns, naturally. For added hilarity, here is Fox’s new synopsis for the film:

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfil his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavour – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

I swear to god, it’s real. Deadpool 2 drops 31 May 2018.
