Kiwi actor Julian Dennison's appearance in the latest Deadpool 2 trailer is brief - and a bit rude.

The red band trailer for the upcoming superhero sequel has been released, and shows Dennison pulling the fingers about two-thirds of the way through.

Dennison has a starring role alongside Ryan Reynolds in the sequel, the follow-up to 2016's surprise superhero hit.

But little is known about the role, and much of it is under wraps until it hits theatres in May.

It's Dennison's high-profile follow-up to his role in the box office success story Hunt of the Wilderpeople, in which he played Ricky Baker.
