The holiday season is coming and it looks like Marvel is looking to cash in on the fun. The first trailer for Once Upon A Deadpool went public and the PG-13 turnover of Deadpool 2 aims to be as funny even with censorship.
Deadpool will be turning around things with this re-release and won’t be afraid to drag its own distributor along the way.
The trailer begins perfectly framed and as it turns out, Deadpool has kidnapped an adult Fred Savage to his own Princess Bride tale. However, this former child star isn’t having any of it and gets really savage with one of his comebacks.
“I kinda prefer Marvel movies,” the actor is heard saying at the end, leaving Deadpool to flinch.
“We are Marvel,” the mouthy mercenary responds. And, yes — that is surely a nod to Venom and it’s “We are Venom” tagline.
“Yeah, but you’re Marvel licensed by Fox,” Savage answers. “It’s like if The Beatles were produced by Nickelback. It’s music, but it sucks.”
Not even Deadpool is sure how to come back from that roast and he could do is gasp at that. Obviously, Savage’s note about Fox and Marvel has some added weight to it as Disney is about to buy out Fox’s film property. Now Once Upon A Deadpool has dropped a fiery comment on Fox’s superhero efforts and Savage’s Nickelback comeback perfectly defines the feelings of many fans.
Dark Phoenix Producer Simon Kinberg stressed that Fox is operating its business as usual even with the deal moving forward.
“The status [of the deal] I won’t speak to because that’s above my pay grade, but we’re just continuing to make movies that we make and developing movies that we’ve been developing for years now, like Gambit, or finishing movies like New Mutants and Dark Phoenix and Deadpool, that comes out this Christmas, and others, Multiple Man, other movies we’ve been working on we continue to work on,” Kinberg said.
Once Upon a Time In Deadpool will hit the theatres on December 12.
