Of course Marvel used a pricey Super Bowl ad slot to tease the upcoming movie, which features the team-up of Deadpool (Reynolds) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). It’s a meta comedy about the MCU itself, and even in the trailer, Wade Wilson (Reynolds) is looking straight into the camera to joke about pegging in a Disney movie. You get it!
Clearly, this franchise is a labor of love for Reynolds, who had to leak his own test footage (allegedly) to get Fox to make the first movie. When filming on Deadpool and Wolverine wrapped, he posted to Instagram, alongside a picture of his crotch, “The suit hides blood. Also sweat… But today, with Deadpool wrapping, it’s mostly tears. A giant and forever thanks to the cast and crew of our film who battled wind, rain, strikes and @thehughjackman… all under the stalwart leadership of @slevydirect. I got to make a movie with my closest pals and that doesn’t happen very often.”
