This might seem obvious, but “Deadpool 2” co-writer Rhett Reese has now confirmed what most fans already suspected: none of the events depicted in the Deadpool teaser that appeared ahead of “Logan” in its theatrical screenings will actually be part of “Deadpool 2.”
Speaking in an interview with superherohype.com, Reese described the teaser as “absurd,” before going on to say “If you look at the plot, abandoning an innocent man as he tries to get dressed, that’s probably something that doesn’t fit into a movie. It wouldn’t work in the logic of a movie, but ‘Deadpool’ affords us the opportunity to break rules, always.”
“We just thought, ‘Let’s make a silly short that doesn’t really happen to Deadpool.’ We don’t really like to adhere to any rules in ‘Deadpool.’ Even the tone can be more absurd if we feel like it’s funny. That was our goal there,” the writer added.
Written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, “Deadpool 2” is directed by David Leitch (“John Wick”), and stars Reynolds, joined by (so far) Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Zazie Beets as Domino, Karan Soni as Dopinder and, presumably, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus. It’s targeted for release in 2018.
