20th Century Fox has officially released a new trailer for Deadpool 2.

Reynolds even Tweeted the poster out with the Flashdance tagline, "Take your passion. And make it happen."

This time he'll be joined by Josh Brolin as Deadpool's time-traveling mutant mercenary frenemy Cable. In addition, Zazie Beetz will play Domino, a mutant mercenary with luck powers.
