A fan-made video turned the cast of Avengers: Infinity War into Deadpool. The fan edited the trailer for the anticipated film, and the clip is too hilarious and amazing not to talk about.
The trailer for Avengers: Infinity War is not exactly lacking in action or suspense, but there was one element missing. YouTube user Mightyraccoon! thought the trailer missed another Marvel character, Deadpool, so decided to add him to the characters in the trailer.
Merc with a Mouth makes his first appearance in the hilarious clip at the 0:12 mark. Fans can noticeably see that the faces of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), and Don Cheadle's War Machine drastically changed into Deadpool's trademark red face.
As the trailer continues, fans can see the other characters' faces changed as Deadpool. These include Captain America (Chris Evans), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Vision (Paul Bettany), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) also turned into Deadpool.
A voiceover calling the trailer boring also intercepts Gamora as she talks about knowing Thanos and his ultimate goal of wiping out half the universe. Deadpool also replaces Tony Stark's face and voice as he asks Gamora (Zoe Saldana) about the Mad Titan, making the scene sound hilarious and not ominous as in the original trailer.
"Holy beef and burrito, who the f**k is this guy" Iron Man a.k.a. Deadpool asks.
David Near, whose voice bears an uncanny resemblance to Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, provides the funny lines in the trailer. He calls Thanos as Cable, in reference to actor Josh Brolin taking on the role of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and Cable in Deadpool. He criticizes Thanos's look and calls him a purple Homer Simpson.
Near also dubs Star-Lord's voice to give the character's conversation with Iron Man an even more hilarious tone. He also adds Deadpool's name in the dialogue.
"Listen up d***heads. I think the plan is good except it sucks. So let your daddy DP do the planning. In that way it might be really good," he says.
The fan edit is deserving of Reynolds' attention, although he has yet to comment on the video. Given the actor's sense of humor, it would not be surprising if he participated in the spoof if asked.
Avengers: Infinity War opens in theaters on April 27. The sequel for Deadpool arrives on May 18.
