The final Deadpool 2 trailer, unveiled on Thursday, takes a dig at Josh Brolin’s Thanos as well as Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe. In the trailer, Cable tells the Merc with a Mouth (Ryan Reynolds) that he looks like “a clown dressed up as a sex toy” to which he responds, “So dark — are you sure you’re not from the DC universe?”
Some fans took it lightly just as they did with the first trailer’s jab at the CGI mustache controversy. But the others weren’t delighted at Deadpool mocking DC Universe yet again and calling it dark when the recent Justice League had managed to at least get the film right tonally.
The official Twitter of Teen Titans GO! To The Movies fired back at Mr. Reynolds by referencing the actor’s comic book movie past when he starred as Hal Jordan in the DC Film’s Green Lantern movie.
“Hey @VancityReynolds, caught your new @deadpoolmovie trailer,” the tweet reads. “Never forget — before you became a @Marvel character, you were part of the @DCComics universe.”
The post had a GIF of the John Stewart Green Lantern as he appears in Teen Titans Go! To The Movies. The GIF shows Green Lantern (Lil Yachty) saying that there was, in fact, a Green Lantern film, but nobody wants to talk about it.
“There was a Green Lantern movie,” Stewart says in the video clip, “but we don’t talk about that.”
Notably, Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth also took a dig at the failed Green Lantern superhero film in 2016’s Deadpool. In the film, he begged that his super suit should not be “green… or animated,” referring to his green computer-animated superhero uniform.
Teen Titans GO! To The Movies is directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail. The film Teen will premiere in theaters on July 27, 2018.
Talking more about Deadpool 2, the film tickets are currently on sale. Notably, expectations from the upcoming R-rated film aren’t quite high. The Deadpool sequel is speculated to earn around $100 million in its first three days as against the original film that grossed a whopping $132 million during its first weekend in 2016.
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin and Zazie Beetz in the lead roles. The film will make its debut on May 18, 2018.
