Aside from that hilarious Bob Ross spoof, this is the first real footage fans have received from Deadpool 2 (a sequel that still needs a proper title), and as it turns out, there was a lot to unpack. The first trailer -- watch it here -- ticked off a few boxes of which we already were aware. Ryan Reynolds is back as the Merc With a Mouth, and he's joined by Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Weasel (T.J. Miller), Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) and Blind Al (Leslie Uggams).

As for the new characters, we knew Cable was from the future, born and bred into combat, as he explains in this trailer. And we knew that Domino (Zazie Beetz) would make her presence known. But the new trailer raised a bunch of interesting questions about Deadpool 2 as we start to figure out what this movie actually will be about. Let's start with a major one:

What Is The DMC?

Pause the Deadpool 2 trailer at virtually any point and you will find a reference to these dudes. The DMC. They are coming at Cable (Josh Brolin) pretty hard in what we assume are the futuristic scenes. And we later see them piloting a massive truck through a downtown area. Sites like MovieWeb have speculated that the DMC will be this movie's version of the Mutant Response Division from the comic books. The original Deadpool movie existed in a world where mutants were present (Colossus and the X-Men were part of the story, loosely), but the movie didn't lean too hard into mutants, and what they mean.

If the DMC stands for some type of "Mutant Containment" or "Mutant Control," this is a giant step toward connecting Deadpool and his movies to the existing X-Men film franchise. And that's exciting.
