article image‘Deadpool 2’ teaser is more of the same, which is fine by fans Special

Ryan Reynolds is riding a wave of social media attention after sharing an exciting teaser for ‘Deadpool 2’ and then trolling Hugh Jackman following the success of his own R-rated comic book movie.
After shoddy cellphone footage of the Deadpool 2 teaser trailer running before Logan hit the internet, social media savvy Ryan Reynolds slyly tweeted the official version of the video on his YouTube channel over the weekend. Using the deceptive title “No Good Deed,” the similarly misleading description reads “Wade and the other girls from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants plan a trip to Cabot Cove,” referring to the popular young adult story from the 2000s and the fictional murder capital of Murder, She Wrote.
The video itself is an unsurprisingly hilarious spoof of Clark Kent/Superman’s phone booth scene in which Wade Wilson spots an armed robbery in progress and jumps into one of the nearly extinct boxes to change into his costume to the Man of Steel’s theme music. After spending more than a minute struggling to get into his red and black spandex uniform, there’s a gunshot and the commotion stops. A cameo by the ever-present Stan Lee is followed by a series of jokes, including a reference to Wolverine: “You know who would have been able to save you? Logan. He doesn’t have to change into anything. All he wears is jeans and a tank-top.” The title of Hugh Jackman’s latest picture also appears on the marquee of a movie theatre in the background.
This three-and-a-half-minute video feels more like a standalone short film than a glimpse of anything that will actually appear in the highly anticipated sequel. But it does suggest fans can expect more of the same sarcasm and humour, as well as an energetic throwback soundtrack. The same song that opened the first movie, Juice Newton’s “Angel in the Morning,” opens the theatrical version of the short, while the YouTube version includes Jason Parr’s “St. Elmo’s Fire,” and it closes with Hans Zimmer’s whimsical theme from True Romance. In spite of its brevity, this video will both temporarily satisfy fans anxiously awaiting the sequel as well as whet their appetites for more information about the upcoming movie — namely news regarding the casting of Cable.
And for those still wondering what the end credits say, it’s Wade’s take on Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea. Thankfully, Comic Book has transcribed it for your reading pleasure.
Although the teaser’s reference to the clawed-X-Man is almost complimentary, Reynolds built on the weekend’s social media attention with a different approach. He renewed his friendly feud with Jackman by trolling the Wolverine’s tweet from Logan’s Beijing premiere.
