Honest Trailers Takes On ‘Deadpool’ In The Most Meta Way Ever

Ryan Reynolds is DEADPOOL, aka Wade Wilson, aka the Merc with the Mouth.

Honest Trailers is back at it once again. Screen Junkies has created a trailer focused on Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool and it even features Deadpool himself, making this Honest Trailer the most meta thing of all time.

The trailer makes fun of X-Men Origins: Wolverine and points out the fact that Deadpool beat Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Guardians of the Galaxy and all other X-Men movies at the box office. Becoming one of the highest R-Rated films of all time, expect of course, for Jesus (Passion of the Christ). Reynolds added that Deadpool might have borrowed some signature Honest Trailer elements for the opening of his movie. He jumps in calling himself, “Van Even Wilder” before accepting a comparison that Deadpool is like a longer episode of Family Guy. 

Reynolds got involved in the parody after Screen Junkies creator reached to Deadpool co-writer Rhett Reese out on Twitter back in February. Signore told Mashable that the process really kicked off when he began direct messaging with Reynold’s himself.
