Final ‘Deadpool 2’ Trailer Takes a Shot at DC’s Cinematic Troubles
It may be the final Deadpool 2 trailer before the film hits theaters, but it’s filled with the same violence, humor, and stabbing that you have come to expect from the popular Marvel icon. This time around, Deadpool is taking the opportunity to mock his DC Universe rivals, and hoping to stop Cable while he’s at it.
“Deadpool 2” will be the long-awaited follow up to the blockbuster hit “Deadpool,” which released in theaters back in 2016. The original film was an instant success for FOX that year, bringing in over $132M on the film’s opening weekend. The comedy-adventurer went on to make over $363M domestically, and over $783M worldwide. “Deadpool 2” was directed by David Leitch, the film features Morena Baccarin, Josh Brolin, and Ryan Reynolds.
Even the official description for the film is filled with Deadpool nonsense. The studio adds, “After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste.” FOX continues, “Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.” You can watch the final trailer for the film below.
In an earlier trailer Deadpool joked about Henry Cavill’s mustache, which DC and Warner Bros. Pictures had to remove with CGI during reshoots for “Batman vs Superman”. This time around Deadpool just commented on DC’s dark and gritty choices within the DC Cinematic Universe.
“Deadpool 2” won’t have too much competition on opening weekend, the film is set to share the box-office with the ensemble comedy-drama “Book Club” with Jane Fonda, Alicia Silverstone, Mary Steenburgen, Diane Keaton, Andy Garcia, Don Johnson, Candice Bergen, Richard Dreyfuss and Craig T. Nelson, and the family-comedy “Show Dogs” with Will Arnett, Natasha Lyonne, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Jordin Sparks, Gabriel Iglesias, Shaquille O’Neal, and Stanley Tucci. The big competition will be Deadpool’s follow-up week, when the film takes on “Solo: A Star Wars Story“.
