“Deadpool, Meet Cable” Video Takes Stab At “Justice League” Stache Mess

There is a certain comfort I take with the “Deadpool” movies in the following sense:

In a current cinematic climate in which so much, especially “tentpole” big-budget franchises, feel so cynically “curated” and shaped for the sheer express interest of making as much money as possible—thus taking us out of the fantasy—the “Deadpool” stuff at least acknowledges that it’s all fantasy.

Take the 4th-wall breaking in this promo video for Deadpool 2 introducing Josh Brolin as Cable. I won’t spoil for you the specifics, but even the infamous Justice League debacle with Henry Cavill’s stache being sloppily edited out is referenced.
