The final Deadpool 2 trailer introduced Peter, a powerless everyman responding to an ad seeking X-Force members.
"You're in," Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool tells him, and the beekeeper-turned-superhero is swiftly recruited and chucked out of a plane.
"I'm just an honest guy, looking for work in a contracting economy," Peter writes of himself in his Twitter profile, which paints the picture of a wedded schlub who enjoys sports and grilling on his deck.
The character, played by fan-favorite comedian Rob Delaney in his franchise debut, is already a hit with moviegoers: after his unveiling in yesterday's trailer, the Peter W. novelty account jumped from just over 800 Twitter followers to 32.9K and growing.
