The Teen Titans Go’s official Twitter account responded on Thursday, the day when 20th Century Fox released the last Deadpool 2 trailer, aiming a tweet at Reynolds:
“Hey @VancityReynolds, caught your new @deadpoolmovie trailer,” the tweet stated. “Never forget — before you became a @Marvel character, you were part of the @DCComics universe.”
It was accompanied by a GIF of John Stewart/Green Lantern as he is seen in Teen Titans Go! To The Movies, which features this inter-galactic cop (voiceover by rapper Lil Yachty), take a shot at the highly criticized 2011 movie Green Lantern featuring Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan.
“There was a Green Lantern movie,” Stewart says, “but we don’t talk about that.”
Back in 2016 when Reynolds debuted as Wade Wilson/Deadpool, he also made fun of the disastrous superhero movie when he was seen begging that his super suit should not be “green or animated,” a reference to his weird CGI superhero uniform from Green Lantern.
The always talkative Deadpool poked at Warner Bros and DCEU in the latest trailer, in response to the insult which came his way from the debutant Cable (Josh Brolin), who called Deadpool to be “a clown dressed up as a sex toy.”
“So dark,” ‘Deadpool said, “you sure you’re not from the DC Universe?”
Deadpool 2 is bound to have its customary barbs loaded and ready to unleash on the various other summer competitors such as Avengers: Infinity War and Solo: A Star Wars Story, which are flanking Deadpool 2 on either side.
All these potshots are in pure jest, and the Canadian actor is not beyond self-degrading humor, and that’s something which might be easy to pull off since you are married to the gorgeous Blake Lively and the leading star of a top-rated superhero franchise which debuted as the highest-grossing R-rated film ever with a total box-office collection of $783 million globally.
Reyolds had earlier been a part of Blade: Trinity before he landed as a Deadpool variant in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a film which showed him to be a Mercenary without a mouth and he was not a lot more than the silent final enemy whom Hugh Jackman’s metal-clawed mutant hero swiftly killed.
He got an opportunity to redeem himself in Deadpool, discarding the version seen in Origins, and coming up with a comic book accurate version of Deadpool who was a smart guy with an abusive motormouth personality.
If you are a hardcoreDeadpool fan, then you might be able to watch the upcoming film with co-creator Rob Liefeld and various other special guests when the special one-off screenings take place on May 17 and 18 and also during the extremely special “Deadpool Day X-Force X-Travaganza’ scheduled for May 19.
Deadpool 2 will release on May 18 whereas Teen Titans Go! To The Movies will hit theaters on July 27.
