Things We Saw Today: Deadpool Takes Over the Avengers: Endgame Trailer

Plus drones, spears and more!

If there’s one thing you can count on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s that Deadpool is going to find a way to insert himself into the action. The Merc with a Mouth appears in an all-Deadpool remake of the Avengers: Endgame trailer, playing every role. The trailer, made by YouTuber Mightyraccoon!, opens with Deadpool talking to Hugh Jackman via an old Wolverine helmet (give them a buddy movie already, universe!) in place of Tony Stark leaving a final message for Pepper Potts.

We then get Deadpool as a series of brooding Avengers (including a blonde wigged Black Widow) as he refers to Thanos as “purple Homer Simpson” and pokes fun at the trailer’s somber tone. There’s lots of fun details in the trailer, including a Hugh Jackman photo in Cap’s compass.

With the Fox-Disney merger on the horizon, it is possible that we’ll see Deadpool join the Avengers, but honestly, I’d rather not. Those films are committed to being family-friendly, and I’d rather see a fully unleashed R-rated Deadpool movie than a watered-down PG-13 one. But who knows what the future holds … I wouldn’t mind watching him hit on Thor.

An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
