Time to break out your soylent green, betty white and mennen black! The first look at the upcoming Deadpool 2 is here, just wrapped up in a calming, fuzzy Bob Ross tribute.
Looks like they are going in a…slightly different direction with this film.
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Is this just…new wave Alien Nation? Maybe not 100% but definitely some similarities. Otherwise, it’s just Will Smith in full on summer blockbuster Will Smith mode, just on Netflix. I will definitely watch this. Ok, I will most definitely have this on the TV while I mostly look at my phone for 90 minutes.
Looks wildly impressive. Though probably the most impressive feat of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not the epic, 24 film slate(when all is said & done that is. Imagine THAT box set) but the fact that people actually now care about formerly C & D level heroes. C’mon, nobody was angling for a Black Panther book 5 years ago. Or Ant-Man. Or the Guardians of the Galaxy. Or Captain Marvel. Shit, even Iron Man was languishing a bit before RDJ spruced him up. So, your gambit worked; kudos Marvel. Now get your comic’s shit together please and thank you.
You can buy tickets already?
Also, I hate Kylo Ren’s helmet.
Well, this is clearly the thing we’ve all needed. That’s not even a joke! How awesome does ninja Batman look?!
From Kotaku, who saw some early footage at NYCC ’18:
Picture Batman, decked out in shogun’s armor and wielding a katana, charging at the Joker, who’s also brandishing a sword, but draped in a fanciful, ancient Japanese courtier’s outfit that’s overflowing with tattered ruffles that bounce along with his maniacal laugh.
Anybody else read these books? Absolute shame the second book in the trilogy absolutely annihilated (lulz) all of the goodwill and interest the first book created. I bailed before book three and I don’t feel like I’m missing much. Wonder how the movie will pan out.
I…kinda cannot wait for this movie. Maybe I’ll go see it with a friend from work.
