Deadpool Pokes Fun At Marvel's 10th Anniversary In New Video

When Deadpool goes on a mocking spree, no one comes out alive. 

The red-and-black-rocking antihero's most recent roasting takes aim at the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which celebrated its 10th anniversary this year with the release of Avengers: Infinity War, the gargantuan superhero flick that came a decade after the Robert Downey Jr.-starrer Iron Man. Closing in on the launch of his own Deadpool 2, Ryan Reynolds' Merc with a Mouth mocked the MCU's anniversary festivities in commemorating the decade of hard work that went into bringing Deadpool to the silver screen. 

"It started as an idea: what if we made a Deadpool movie?' There was only a few of us back then, and looking back, we had no idea how big it would become," Deadpool regals in the clip. "So innocent, and yet, the momentum that it started."

Speaking to his rocky debut in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Deadpool admitted that the part "was not really what we had in mind," and that Ryan Reynolds' crash-and-burn turn in Green Lantern "didn't help things."

He then chronicled the bumpy years from 2011 to 2014, when 20th Century Fox repeatedly turned down the idea of a Deadpool film — "it was more of a 'hell no,'" Deadpool puts it — which ultimately led the creative team to simply stop asking for the movie to happen. 

Things took a turn into brightness in 2015, when Deadpool test footage leaked. And by 2016, Deadpool had opened wide in theaters, causing the Merc to go "on a massive coke bender."

"Ten years into it, phase one has exceeded our wildest expectations," Deadpool says. "If you had told me back then that one movie would have spawned an expansive two-movie universe, I'd have said you were crazy." (We're not getting weirdly teary-eyed, you are.)

Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 stars Josh Brolin as Cable, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Terry Crews as Bedlam, Julian Dennison as Russell, Lewis Tan as Shatterstar, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapičić as Colossus, Rob Delaney as Peter, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Jack Kesy as Black Tom Cassidy, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Karan Soni as Dopinder, Shioli Kutsuna as Yukio, and Bill Skarsgård as Zeitgeist. 

Here's the fake-but-real synopsis for the film: "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."

Deadpool 2, the culmination of 10 years of behind-the-scenes Deadpool movie production, will open on May 18.
