The other day we got another teaser clip from the 2018 opening “Deadpool 2” film and while it pays homage to the late great Bob Ross and his painting show the best is left to the viewing of the clip itself so do please take a look.
Per The YouTube Video Page: 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.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Alrighty then, I am pretty sure that “Deadpool 2” is not about that at all. Also, I am starting to think that I will have my hands full with clips like this one when it comes to the “Deadpool 2” film. They are really upping the level of ridiculousness and honestly that is fine by me. Recently, some readers had been wondering why there has been such an uptick in content such as this and the answer is simple – With so many superhero themed movies and our regular attendance at the NY Comic Con and related conventions, it makes sense to keep these things flowing. Don’t worry there is something here for everyone. That being said this was a fun clip for what I am sure will be a movie that will leave us in stitches. I cannot wait for the next revelation from their side of the fence. What did you readers think about this one? Let me know down in the comments below.
Several days ago, actor Ryan Reynolds tweeted out an image of the character “Domino” from the upcoming feature “Deadpool 2”. I don’t think that I have to say that its he who plays Wade Wilson/Deadpool in the Marvel Comics property that was released by 20th Century Fox a couple of years ago do I? If I do, he is. Let’s have a look at her. The photo made me laugh as its using the same premise that Reynolds did for the first “Deadpool” film but the rug was a bearskin one like an old Burt Reynolds photo. She is going to be played by Zazie Beetz.
So my rationale for waiting on this was based on the assumption that if we were getting Domino that we would also be getting Cable and lo and behold, he recently shared the visual of Josh Brolin in his full Cable garb. Brolin also portrays Thanos over in the MCU in case you didn’t know.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I must admit that while I like how Cable looks I am not too crazy about the Domino look since its so drastically different from the comics series. They also have opted to swap races on the character like we found them doing with The Human Torch in the absolutely dreadful “Fantastic Four” movie of 2015. At the risk of sounding closed-minded, I just like the characters being what I recall them on the page and with Domino not even looking like the character I am not sure what to say. Let’s hope for the best. I am glad that Cable is making his appearance here because that means X-Force cannot be far behind in terms of X-Men properties that Fox controls and releases. I know many readers are hoping for a collaboration between the studios like we found happening with Sony and “Spider-Man Homecoming” but with X-Men I want no such thing. I want a return of the properties to the House Of Mouse in an all under the same roof scenario. What about you readers? What do you think of these characters looks? Let me know down in the comments section below.
Actor Ryan Reynolds recently posted to his Official YouTube Channel what amounts to a bit of a teaser trailer for his second Deadpool film in a short clip called “No Good Dead”. Take a look at this one down below.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: So we all knew that Deadpool was going to get a sequel based on the box office response that it got and this clip is a clever play on the superhero quick change to jump into action. In Deadpools case its clearly a not so quick change. Now I don’t usually speak on the teasers since I feel its better to wait for a longer and more comprehensive clip from the film but with this one I don’t exactly think it is going to be in the film. I loved the use of the phone booth and the John Williams score for The Big Red S from their Distinguished Competition in publishing and if you look at the graffiti on the phone booth it says “Nathan Summers Is Cumming Soon” and we all know that Summers is Cable in the comics series. We see the great Stan Lee and a billboard for the movie “Logan”. Fun stuff. What did you think of this one? Let me know down in the comments below. Also, if you have little background in Deadpool as a character there is a link to purchase the film on Blu-ray and a couple of trade paperback editions from Marvel Comics. It’s time for you to get with the program.
I’m figuring that with the film having been released for over a week to the general masses that all of the absolute comic book film diehards have gotten to see “Deadpool”. I caught this a couple of days ago with my good friend Skeleton Pete and I wanted to offer up some quick insight about the film but nothing that is going to be a spoiler for anyone. At least I don’t think that there will be anything spoiled. We saw it over at the Regal Union Square Stadium on 13th Street which is a usual haunt for us to see the adventure films. While we went super early, there is NO matinee price to speak of at this theater. Here we go.
For starters, I should stress that “Deadpool” is NOT a part of the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe (referred to from now on as “MCU” for the sake of typing) and is instead considered among the “X-Men” film universe that is maintained by 20th Century Fox. Some people might not know who Deadpool even is or what this film entails so here is a repeat of the film premise that was culled from its Wikipedia page just before release.

Ever since his first appearance in “New Mutants” #98 back in 1991 he’s been the Merc with a Mouth and now it seems as though Deadpool is going to be known as the Merc with a Movie as the film in which he stars opens up today in theaters everywhere. Check out the poster, premise and cast below.
The Premise: In an effort to cure his cancer, former special forces operative Wade Wilson was subjected to an experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, disfigured skin, an unstable mind and a “dark, twisted” sense of humor. Armed with new abilities and a new identity, Wilson hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. (thanks Wiki)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Even thought this film takes place outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since its connected to the X-Men franchise license that Fox currently holds, I am super excited for this one since it looks like the got him 100% correct. If you’ve seen the trailers you can tell that Deadpool is a complete and utter a$$hole in them when it comes to his adversaries and even his friends and that is pretty much how he is in the comics that he helps move off the shelves month after month. Speaking of Deadpool in comics, last month Marvel Comics celebrated the character by offering fans 10 different titles starring him for $1 apiece. You can peruse what they were in case you missed that post by clicking HERE but you might have to shop around a little bit for them since the releases ended in the last week of January. I’m debating on whether or not to see this on opening day or not because I have Toy Fair this coming weekend and that is going to keep me busy for a few days. What do you readers think? Will you be catching this film on the big screen or waiting for it to hit HBO or a Blu-ray disc release? Let me know in the comments section and oh before I completely close up on this posting, attention Parents “DO NOT BRING YOUR LITTLE ONES TO SEE DEADPOOL”!!!!. This film is rated “R” for a reason and the dialogue is not meant for the younger set. The last thing we need is people decrying it so much that we never see a sequel. That’s it, carry on with the rest of your day now.
