Look, let’s say you can’t make it to the theater to see Logan this weekend but you want to see this Deadpool 2 tease that everybody is talking about. You could always search for a horrible cam version and wait to see the real thing at the theater. Or, better option, go to Ryan Reynolds Twitter and YouTube accounts to check out the official release right now. That or click play above, whatever floats your boat.
Anyway, we get a new guilty pleasure song to fawn over from John Parr — though I think we could’ve skipped the St. Emo’s Fire theme for “Naughty, Naughty,” right? — and we get some fresh Deadpool material to break down, unpack, decode, inspect, and theorize over. Superman references aside, it’s always a pleasure to hear Hans Zimmer’s music from True Romance. Or his cover of Carl Orff’s work if you’re a damn stickler. Either way, it’s the musical choice that really matters here.
Elsewhere we get yet another reference to Cable with the words “Nathan Summers Coming Soon” written on the phone booth. We also get a very Deadpool discussion about said phone booth, all while lying on his new friend and eating some Ben And Jerry’s. And then this short even has it’s own Stan Lee cameo, which could also count as Logan‘s Stan Lee cameo if you really wanted to get crazy. They all find a way to get in there!
There’s also some Firefly posters for some reason, likely referencing the soon to be announced Firefly revival coming to Netflix that nobody has mentioned or hinted about. Makes sense to me and I think the rumor should start here. Joss Whedon isn’t busy with The Avengers now, so why not?
