The latest Avengers: Infinity War trailer caused quite the sensation, sparking online discussion and generating 179 million views within its first 24 hours of release. However, one fan found a way to improve it, by adding Deadpool — lots of Deadpool.
In this nearly note-perfect mashup, David Near voices the Merc With a Mouth, who replaces virtually every major character in the trailer, from Thanos and Scarlet Witch to Star-Lord and Iron Man.
The parody replaces some of the most memorable lines with the kind of dialogue you would expect from Deadpool. For example, after Deadpool Star-Lord offers to make a better plan than Deadpool Iron Man, Tony Stark’s memorable “Wow” is replaced with, “Oh, fuck.”
The new dialogue remains faithful of the spirit of Deadpool, who has a history of breaking the fourth wall and making observations about, say, the X-Men film franchise.
Here, he makes a jab about Thanos and the long buildup to Marvel’s Infinity War, saying, “I don’t give a fuck if they remember you. But really, how can they not after 10 years of this bullshit?”
As you can glean, Deadpool drops in the expletives wherever he can, which is also very on-brand.
