Here is the ‘Deadpool 2’ teaser that was shown before ‘Logan’ last weekend

Anyone who caught a screening of Logan over the weekend — and judging by the film’s impressive box-office numbers, that is quite a few people — likely caught a surprise teaser for the Deadpool sequel that paired Ryan Reynolds with legendary Marvel Comics icon (and cameo expert) Stan Lee.

For anyone who missed it, however, Reynolds has made the teaser available online and it’s a nice reminder of everything that made last year’s ‘R’-rated film such a success.

The short video features Reynolds as Deadpool and it shows him attempting to suit up in a phone booth after witnessing a robbery in progress. Getting dressed up in his costume proves to be more complicated than superhero stories would suggest, though, and Deadpool ends up taking a little too long to come to the rescue.

Fans of Deadpool’s comic-book adventures will certainly note the “Nathan Summers” graffiti on the phone booth — a nod to Deadpool’s frequent colleague (sometimes ally, sometimes enemy) Cable, who will be introduced in the sequel. There is also a humorous nod to another famous DC Comics superhero, as John Williams’ iconic Superman theme can be heard while Deadpool tries to suit up in the Man of Steel’s favorite location for a quick change.

Set to be directed by John Wick co-director David Leitch, the Deadpool sequel brings back screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick for its script. Other than Reynolds, no one else has been cast in the film at this point, although both Cable and Domino — a mutant mercenary with the power to affect probability — are expected to appear in the film. The sequel is also rumored to provide a jumping-off point for an eventual X-Force team movie.

The Deadpool sequel is scheduled to hit theaters March 2, 2018.

The witches return in first teaser trailer for Hocus Pocus 2
The Sanderson sisters smiling while at a fair in Hocus Pocus 2.

Nearly three decades ago, Disney released the original Hocus Pocus into theaters with Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker as the Sanderson sisters, an evil trio of witches from the 17th century. Next year would have been the 30th anniversary, but the Sandersons simply couldn't wait another year before making their big comeback on Disney+. Now, Disney has released the first teaser trailer for the long-awaited sequel, Hocus Pocus 2.

Midler is reprising her role as Winnie Sanderson, alongside Najimy as Mary Sanderson and Sarah Jessica Parker as Sarah Sanderson. The sisters were vanquished and seemingly killed in the original Hocus Pocus. But they've never let death stop them before. The trailer also introduces the teenagers who accidentally bring the Sandersons back to life: Becca (Whitney Peak) and Cassie (Lilia Buckingham). These wannabe Wiccans are messing with powers beyond their control. And they will have to team up with their friend and fellow student, Izzy (Belissa Escobedo), to stop the Sandersons' new reign of terror.

Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 teaser hints at the last showdown
The main villain of Stranger Things 4.

Without giving too much away for fans who haven't already made their way through the first part of Stranger Things 4, there's a showdown coming for the fate of the world. Humanity's future depends on Eleven as she takes on the malevolent Vecna. But in the new teaser trailer for Stranger Things 4, Volume 2, Vecna taunts Eleven by saying, "It is over, Eleven. You have freed me. You can't stop this now."

If that wasn't ominous enough, it looks like some of our favorite teens are directly in the line of fire from Vecna. Meanwhile, Jim Hopper has uncovered some disturbing things in Russia. It looks like demogorgons have been put on display. But messing with the Upside Down is a very bad idea. It always comes back to bite you in the end.
