Deadpool 2 Gets The How It Should Have Ended Treatment


In honor of Deadpool 2‘s digital debut (see the cheeky promo here), the good folks at How It Should Have Ended have turned their attention to the Merc’s second solo adventure for what is undoubtedly a hilarious, wonderfully meta video tribute.

And like all HISHE clips involving the superhero genre, this one ends with Wade Wilson rubbing shoulders not with Batman and Superman (granted, the Caped Crusader swings by the open X-Force auditions), but an entire posse of cinema’s greatest villains – think of Voldemort, the Joker and Thanos of Avengers: Infinity War.

Speaking of Marvel’s super-sized crossover, Infinity War is referenced numerous times in this particular tribute, as we see Deadpool travel back in time (and to another reality) where he finds Thor standing over the visibly wounded Thanos. Cue hilarity as a gleeful Wade Wilson regales Palpatine (or “Palps”) and his crooks about how he saved them from death by disintegration.

That’s now two of 2018’s biggest comic book movies that have received the HISHE treatment; next up is Ant-Man and the Wasp, before Venom attempts to launch a full-blown Spider-Man universe in October. The jury’s still out on that one, mind you, even if there is a morbid sense of curiosity surrounding Tom Hardy’s dual performance as Eddie Brock and his demonic doppelgänger.

For Deadpool 2, though, a $731M worldwide haul was enough to place David Leitch’s R-rated sequel among box office royalty, which certainly bodes well for that mooted X-Force movie that’s still making headway in development despite the combined production woes of Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants.

Closer to home, expect the Merc to kick up a storm on Blu-ray and DVD in two weeks’ time.
