Ryan Reynolds returns as the Merc with the Mouth in Deadpool 2.

The new trailer for Deadpool 2 spares no one. Released on Thursday, the trailer takes digs at Thanos, the villain of the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War (and played by Josh Brolin, who also stars as Cable in Deadpool 2) and the DC Universe.

The film is a sequel to the runaway hit of 2016, which went on to become the most successful R-rated film of all time. Deadpool 2 is a bigger film, filled with expensive special effects and a larger cast.

As we saw in the previous trailer, Deadpool 2 will introduce fans to the X-Force, a superhero team that will eventually get a film of their own. In this trailer, we see Deadpool and Weasel, his sidekick, conduct interviews for the team.

But once the cast is set, we see action on a greater scale than we’d anticipated. The first Deadpool movie poked fun at its own lack of resources - Deadpool once joked about the studio not being able to afford the major X-Men - but this one has set pieces straight out of a big X-Men film, complete with a visit to Professor X’s mansion and a trip aboard their signature jet.

Several plot lines are hinted at, including but not limited to Deadpool being forced to look after a young child (expect more Logan jokes), Deadpool fighting Cable, Deadpool taking cab rides and jumping off planes.
