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.
