Ryan Reynolds has unveiled the first teaser for Deadpool 2 after the four-minute "cut scene" secretly debuted in front of Logan, the Wolverine sequel that opened last week. Comments at Gizmodo Australia suggest the teaser is currently only running in the U.S.
In the fourth wall-shattering scene – which takes place outside of a sketchy movie theatre playing, of course, Logan – Reynolds' Wade Wilson witnesses a gun-toting crook assaulting an old man carrying groceries.
Wilson quickly runs into a phone booth to change into his Deadpool costume as the Superman theme soars in the background; unfortunately, it's more difficult to strip naked and change clothes in a phone booth than Clark Kent would have people believe.
By the time Deadpool finally is outfitted, a gunshot rings out. Emerging from the phone booth – after a quick cameo by an as-himself Stan Lee – the antihero sees that the old man has been shot and killed.
"I'm so sorry. I spent way too long in the phone booth," Deadpool tells the corpse. "If I'm being honest with myself, I probably should've just called 911… The fuck is a phone booth doing on a street corner? Didn't those just disappear in '98?"
And with that, Deadpool lies down, uses the dead man's lifeless body as a pillow and chows down on the Cherry Garcia from the spilled bag of groceries.
Deadpool 2 is "coming… not soon enough," the teaser joked. (The release date, as of now, is March 1st 2018 in Australia) As hinted on the phone booth graffiti – "Nathan Summers Comming Soon!" – the sequel will feature the time-travelling X-Men mutant Cable, with Stranger Things' David K. Harbour among those rumoured for the role.
