To help promote the digital and home media release of Deadpool 2, 20th Century Fox unveiled a new Chuck E. Cheese-style trailer for the extended Deadpool 2 Super Duper Cut. Deadpool 2 has been one of the year’s biggest box office successes, bringing in more than $730 million worldwide, and a select group of fans at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 were treated to a screening of the cut yesterday.
While Deadpool 2 saw the reprisal of Ryan Reynolds’ foul-mouthed Wade Wilson, it also introduced audiences to a slew of new characters and hinted at the promised X-Force movie. In the sequel, Wilson, aka Deadpool, forms a team to try and protect a young mutant from the time-traveling cyborg Cable, played by Josh Brolin. Among the newcomers to Deadpool’s X-Force team are fan-favorite lucky charm Domino, played by Zazie Beets, and the hard-to-find Vanisher, who’s revealed to be Brad Pitt in a cameo role.
The new trailer, dubbed Touring Now: Deadpool and the Super Duper Band by 20th Century Fox, features a bizarre Chuck E. Cheese-style animatronic band playing over a rendition of Dolly Parton’s “9 To 5.” The “Super Duper Band” referred to in the trailer title is comprised of Deadpool and Vanisher alongside a gorilla, bear, and mouse in gear sporting a big “X.”
Among the extra 15 minutes of material inserted into the Super Duper Cut are scores of jokes that director David Leitch said were cut for time, as well as a number of still-undiscovered Easter eggs that were snuck into the film by the art department during post-production. Fans who purchase the Blu-ray will also see footage that reveals whether or not Juggernaut survived the final scene, as well as an additional post-credits scene that shows Deadpool in a nursery contemplating killing a baby - Adolf Hitler.
While it’s difficult to decipher a trailer that’s as odd and outlandish as the one for the Super Duper Cut, the most interesting aspects might be the video name and the inclusion of Vanisher. The title refers to a “Super Duper Band” and in Deadpool 2, the X-Force team was referred to by Deadpool as his “Super Duper Group.” Along with Vanisher’s appearance in the trailer, this could be a reference to extra footage showing or possibly setting up the mutant team for a future film. Both the original and Super Duper Cut will be released digitally on August 7 and on home video August 21.
