Deadpool changed the superhero game. It reminded the entire industry that an R rating isn’t a barrier to box office gold. It showed that a sense of humor and self awareness go a long, long way. And it proved that marketing campaigns don’t have to all follow the same formula of generic posters and teaser trailers.
That last part brings us here today. Deadpool 2 won’t hit theaters for another year, but Ryan Reynolds and new director David Leitch (John Wick) have put together a video to get fans hyped for more Deadpool. It’s not a teaser, though, it’s a short film called No Good Deed. Because, hey, if Pixar can put an adorable, inspiring short in front of all of their movies, why can’t Deadpool do something similar? Minus the adorable and inspiring part, of course.
Check it out.
Deadpool 2 hits theaters on March 2, 2018.
