March 4 (UPI) -- Ryan Reynolds released a teaser trailer for his upcoming movie Deadpool 2 Saturday.

"Anyone know the number to 911? No Good Deed," Reynolds tweeted along with the 3 1/2-minute clip.

The profanity-laced video shows Reynolds' character Wade Wilson, a former special forces operative/mercenary who now has super powers, walking down a street and listening to the song "Man in Motion" from the film St. Elmo's Fire on his iPod when he witnesses a senior citizen being attacked as he is carrying bags of groceries.

"Not on my watch," Wilson says as he ducks into a phone book to don the Deadpool disguise that will hide his true identity.

John Williams' classic music theme from Superman plays as Wilson struggles to get into his costume. At one point, Wilson's bare buttocks can be seen through the glass booth. He stops to make a phone call, fights with the door of the booth and a gunshot can be heard.

When he finally emerges, comic-book legend Stan Lee appears and says, "Nice suit!" to which Wilson/Deadpool responds, "Zip it, Stan Lee!"

He runs with "Man in Motion" playing in the background and finds the man he intended to help has already been killed.

"No, no, no! You're not going to walk that one off. Oh, that's so gross. I am so sorry! I spent way too long in the phone booth," he said, addressing the corpse. "If I'm being honest with myself, I probably should have just called 911."

Resting up against the dead body, Wilson/Deadpool spies a pint of ice cream the victim had dropped and prepares to eat it. It's then that he reveals he actually did make a call inside the phone booth, but it wasn't to the police, it was to his costumer for advice on how to get in his suit faster.

"I don't know how the other guys do it so quickly. You probably wouldn't be dead if it was Logan. What's he got to change into? Wears a [expletive] tank top and a pair jeans," he quipped, referring to his fellow Marvel hero Logan/Wolverine, which has been played in numerous X-Men and standalone movies by Hugh Jackman.

The movie Logan was released Friday.
