It has been a little over a year since Ryan Reynolds graced the movie screens as the "Merc with a Mouth" antihero Deadpool and portrayed him correctly the way comic book fans know him.
That means it has also been a year since the Reynolds' solo project was validated after it became the highest grossing X-Men film in the global box office. Now, just in time for the release of his pal's film, Logan, he is back to give fans more.
Vancouver-based actor Ryan Reynolds tweeted on March 4 asking his followers if anyone knows the number to 911 and capped it off with an almost 4-minute official teaser video for Deadpool 2 aptly titled "No Good Deed."
Anyone know the number to 911?

No Good Deed
"Wade and the other girls from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants plan a trip to Cabot Cove," the description reads. The video's description is not really all that helpful but it is funny and very Deadpool.
In the teaser video, viewers are taken to a seemingly empty street as Wade Wilson walks along while listening to music. He suddenly stops and pulls out his earphones when he hears the tell-tale sounds of an old man getting robbed in a side street.
Wade then pulls down his hood to confirm his suspicion, utters "not on my watch, mother*******," then runs off to an empty phone booth to change into his Deadpool costume. That short bit alone already tells the audience that, yes, Deadpool 2 is definitely keeping its R-rating when it hits theaters but the next bit validates it.
Wade occupies the phone booth — a salute to Superman's costume change — and viewers just literally watch his silhouette as he struggles to remove his street clothes to wear his red and black costume. He definitely struggles because, at some point, he ends up leaning against the phone booth's frosted glass door and viewers are "treated" to a non-silhouette view of Wade's behind.
Then things go wrong after his lengthy costume change, he then decides to make a phone call. Right after the call ends, Wade checks his weapons but a shot is fired in the middle of it and Wade is pretty sure things already went bad.
Stan Lee appreciated Deadpool's suit when he finally jumps out of the phone booth, only to be told to "zip it." Of course, Deadpool's assumption was correct because, when he finally rushes over to where the robbery is supposedly taking place, the victim is already lying dead on the street.
The Wolverine Jokes Are Not Dead
Of course, we all know that Wolverine has been the butt of Deadpool's jokes since Reynolds was made to incorrectly portray Wade Wilson in the Wolverine film so, now that Deadpool 2 is being teased just in time to the release of Logan, the merc with a mouth made sure to remind everyone.
"You probably wouldn't be dead if it was Logan," Deadpool tells the dead man he failed to save, "What's he got to change into?" he adds, recalling that Logan just wears a tank top and a pair of jeans. He also imitated Hugh Jackman's Australian accent while he was at it.

Deadpool 2 Release
The video was a teaser so Deadpool made sure to really tease everyone, even with the release date of the sequel because he just flashed the word "COMING," only to be followed by "NOT SOON ENOUGH."
The end credits, by the way, is just as hilarious.
