Marvel’s latest trailer for Deadpool 2 has fans talking. And with references to Thanos, Wolverine, and the DC Universe, there’s plenty to talk about. Scheduled to be released on May 18, 2018, the eleventh installment in the X-Men film series is gearing up to deliver on its predecessor’s delicious combo of equal parts hilarity, vulgarity, and bloodbath in epic fashion.
True-to-form, Deadpool himself inflicts some of sharpest cuts in this savage trailer (from Ryan Reynolds’ own Twitter feed):

The trailer had a little something for everybody.
Fans were particularly pleased with the Thanos reference (especially since Josh Brolin plays both Deadpool 2 villain, Cable and Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Thanos) and DC Universe callout:

Tearing Dc and outright name dropping Thanos

A Thanos joke. A DCEU joke. And a joke about Domino's powers. I say that's the #Deadpool equivalent of a home run.

And a little Goonies reference for the Josh Brolin fans:
“Bring it on, One-Eyed Willy!”

There's a Goonies joke also that I didn't catch on the first watch. Very well-played. pic.twitter.com/whNbQv4QHR

The one eyed willie comment is even funnier now that I realized it was said to Bran.
