In keeping with Deadpool’s comic book traditions, this none-too-serious trailer continues to break down the fourth wall, the titular character narrating this pastiche of other game previews. “You start with weird drony music, everything dark and foreboding. And stuff… Screw this!”
From here on in, we have air guitar, hand puppets, and Cable. That’s right, the trailer confirms the inclusion of Nathan Summers, the son of Scott Summers (AKA Cyclops) and Madelyne Prior (erm… AKA Madelyne Prior). The future soldier inflicted with a techno-organic virus partnered with Deadpool in what is arguably the pair’s best comic series, Cable & Deadpool. Also confirmed (via IMDB) is the inclusion of Cable’s other partner, the hot probability-altering assassin, Domino, as well as the whirlwind-generating marauder, Riptide, and everyone’s favourite Canadian, Wolverine.
While the juvenile, sexist humour may not be to everyone’s taste, the trailer at least shows that developer High Moon is willing to have a bit of fun with the design of the game, and that’s never a bad thing.
