It's not a teaser. It's not a trailer. It's a short film.
So says screenwriter Rhett Reese of "No Good Deed", a Deadpool snippet that was released online and in cinemas (with the latest Wolverine installment, Logan) this weekend.
With his trademark absurdist humour, the mouthy-mouthed merc with a mouth mocks Superman in an attempt to change in a phone booth (what's that?) to the tune of "St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)", offering us a rearview that no one asked for but got anyway.
Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee also makes a cameo (as he always does). Deadpool, or Reynolds (or both), also makes a reference to Hugh Wolverine Jackman with an Aussie accent.
Having destroyed much of Vancouver in the first film, Deadpool 2 (plus cheeky hometown boy Ryan Reynolds and his little bum) is scheduled to return to town to shoot (both on screen and in production terms) here from June 19 to September 18.
The sequel is rumoured to feature the characters Cable and Domino.
However, fans will have quite a wait before they get a piece of the action—the film is slated for release on March 2, 2018.
