The latest trailer for the upcoming animated Teen Titans Go! To The Movies debuted last week. The trailer takes a humorous dig at Deadpool as the titular team comprising Robin, Beast Boy, Raven, Cyborg, and Starfire confuses their arch-nemesis, Deathstroke/Slade Wilson with the Merc with the Mouth.
“Deadpool? What? He should be saying that he’s not me because I came out waaaaay before he did,” Deathstroke says in the trailer when the Titans call him as Deadpool.
Deathstroke’s Slade Wilson was the original inspiration for the Marvel superhero Deadpool a.k.a Wade Wilson. This prompted the Titans to crack a joke about it.
Actor Ryan Reynolds, who portrays the character of Deadpool on the big screen, himself, commented on the video in his own equally hilarious fashion.
“Deathstroke/Slade Wilson is nothing like Deadpool/Wade Wilson. Not sure where the confusion comes from,” Reynolds wrote in the comments section on YouTube. You can check out the video below.
This is not the first time that Teen Titans GO! and Deadpool 2 has taken a dig at each other on social media. The final Deadpool 2 trailer mocked the DC Comics universe. The trailer in question shows Cable telling 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?”.
The Teen Titans GO! To The Movies team fired back at Reynolds by pointing out 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 read. “Never forget — before you became a @Marvel character, you were part of the @DCComics universe.”
The Twitter post also showcased a GIF of the John Stewart Green Lantern as he appears in Teen Titans Go! To The Movies.
Directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail, Teen Titans GO! To The Movies will premiere in theaters on July 27, 2018. Deadpool 2 is just a couple of days away from its May 18 release date.
