The marketing behind Deadpool 2 is quite the art form, and I can’t imagine any real big changes in what I’ve seen so far that will convince me the studio could have done a much better job — other than maybe releasing it farther away from Solo: A Star Wars Story. One other fun aspect of the trailers we’ve seen are the titles that pop up on screen.
For that first trailer, we got “from the studio that brought you 27 Dresses,” which was pitch perfect, but then the second trailer upped their game with, “from the studio that killed Wolverine.” Of course, audiences who see that will know they’re referring to the film Logan, which saw a violent and painful end to the beloved X-Men character (spoiler alert).
Now, the new poster for the film has borrowed from that and put it as the tagline at the top.
Check it out below:
Below is the official synopsis for Deadpool 2:
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.
