While we were treated to the unexpected first trailer for Deadpool 2 today, Fox also went ahead and launched a new website to promote the new film. Interestingly enough, the site also suggests a new title for the highly-anticipated sequel, which says:
The Untitled Deadpool Sequel.
Of course this may just be an unofficial place-holder before the real title is announced, but it would definitely be the kind of quirky and meta move that’d make sense for a property such as Deadpool.
Until there’s further information on the sequel, here’s the new official synopsis for the upcoming flick:
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill 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 flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
It definitely sounds like they’re increasing the weirdness for this sequel, which fans of the comics will surely enjoy. Plus we’ll be getting Josh Brolin as Deadpool’s sidekick Cable, so what’s not to love?
The Untitled Deadpool Sequel will be hitting theaters June 1, 2018.
