While the marketing campaign for Deadpool 2 has been chockful of hilarity, featuring everything from a potty-mouthed Bob Ross homage to the Merc with a Mouth playing with action figures, we haven’t gotten a whole lot in the way of a full-length trailer. With less than two months to go until the film debuts, the folks at Fox have decided to reward us for our patience with a brand-new trailer, brimming with madcap violence, fourth-wall-breaking goodness. Oh, and X-Force. A big bunch of X-Force.

The trailer gives us an indication why Josh Brolin’s Cable has traveled to the past: he’s out to kill a kid (played by Julian Dennison), presumably before he can cause worldwide catastrophe in the future. Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool doesn’t cotton to that idea, so he recruits a crew of mutants—which he dubs X-Force, though he admits the name is derivative—to stop the cybernetic mutant’s plans. Joining Mr. Pool is Domino (Zazie Beetz), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), and a whole slew of mutants from Marvel’s X-Men universe.

Best part of the trailer? Leslie Uggams is back as Blind Al ready to dole out the sass and kick some ass. Bless you, Ms. Uggams.

Deadpool 2, starring Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Brianna Hildebrand, Leslie Uggams, and Morena Baccarin, hits theaters on May 18th.
