13 Easter Eggs We Found in the New DEADPOOL 2 Trailer

Deadpool 2 may not have an official name, but the first trailer for “Untitled Deadpool Sequel” has finally arrived. The highly anticipated preview gave fans their first glimpse of Josh Brolin as Cable, as well as some delightfully subversive digs at other Marvel movies and even Deadpool’s new Disney overlords. This trailer was more loaded than Deadpool’s chimichanga, pun totally intended. That’s why today’s Nerdist News is unpacking the 13 Easter eggs we found in the new footage.

Join host and cybernetic mutant from the future, Jessica Chobot, as she shows us how the trailer threw shade on everything from Henry Cavill’s Justice League mustache removal to Brolin’s moonlighting comic book gig as Thanos for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The unfinished CGI of Cable’s arm led to the mustache joke, while Ryan Reynolds‘ merc with a mouth quoted Thanos’ single line of dialogue from Avengers: Age of Ultron. Later, Deadpool referenced Infinity War when he said that he had “the stones to help you.”

It’s pretty hard to miss the video’s Toy Story parody, but you may not have noticed that Wade Wilson wrote his name on his action figures as well. If you watch the rest of the video closely, you’ll see Cable unleash his limited form of telekinesis, as well as witness Domino make her official debut as Deadpool and his new frenemies go up against the DMC, which may stand for the Department of Mutant Control. But the biggest standout moment here was the apparent first look a mutant team that might be X-Force.

All of these Easter eggs came from a trailer that was under three minutes. How many could the finished film have? We’ll have to wait until May 18 to find out.
