‘Deadpool 2’ Perfectly Mocks the Worst Moment in ‘Batman v. Superman’

(Note: This post contains spoilers for “Deadpool 2” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”)

“Deadpool 2” has no shortage of jokes that break the fourth wall and make the viewer complicit — and one of the best totally dunks on what might be the single worst thing about “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

C’mon, you know what it is.

The joke comes pretty early in “Deadpool 2,” before the opening credits even, after a montage of Deadpool, aka Wade Wilson, kicking the crap out of bad guy as he completes some mercenary jobs. When he finishes, he returns home to Vanessa (Morena Baccarin). It’s their anniversary, and Wade rattles of a series of excuses to cover for being late.

The last of the excuses Wade gives Vanessa for his tardiness is the claim that he ran into another superhero, and the pair got into a fight. “Actually, I was fighting this caped badass, until I found out that his mom is also named Martha,” Wade explains.

The jokes references the moment in the DC and Warner Bros. superhero throw-down from 2016, when Batman and Superman finally stop “v.”-ing and start being friends. After having been manipulated by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) to hate each other throughout the film, Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) finally duke it out. Eventually, Batman nearly kills Superman using a Kryptonite spear.

He only stops when Superman uses his (apparent) dying breath to beg the Dark Knight to save his mother, rasping out her name, “Martha.” But, Batman, realizes, his mom is named Martha too! Suddenly, the two heroes have common ground and realize that they should be allies. Or, as the film put it, “No Marthas will die tonight.”

Yes, it plays as dumb as it sounds in “Batman v. Superman,” and it’s been mocked ever since. Apparently, Deadpool thought it was a little hokey too.

In the films, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) routinely makes fun of the X-Men, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But some of his hardest-hitting gags are aimed at the DC Comics universe of films. Most often it’s not Batman though, it’s Reynolds’ starring role in “Green Lantern,” the 2011 superhero flop in which he plays protagonist Hal Jordan. And in “Deadpool 2,: Reynolds even engages in a little wish fulfillment to erase the whole thing from history.

So don’t worry, Batman and Superman — at least you’re still in this timeline.

Henry Cavill: ‘Justice League’ Marketing Was ‘Faintly Ridiculous’ In How It Handled Superman

Cavill would’ve handled things a little differently than Warner Bros. if he was in charge of marketing “Justice League.”

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” ended on a massive cliffhanger centered around the death and possible resurrection of Superman. The narrative decision left Warner Bros. in a tough position when it came time to marketing the follow-up tentpole, “Justice League.” Everyone knew Superman would be returning in some capacity, but the studio didn’t want to outright spoil the superhero’s return given the cliffhanger ending of the previous film. As a result, Warner Bros. made the decision to hide Superman from all “Justice League” marketing materials, including posters, trailers, and clips. Superman himself, Henry Cavill, admits such a choice maybe wasn’t the smartest to make.

“That whole concept [of hiding Superman in the marketing] was faintly ridiculous and I honestly believe everyone viewed it as such,” Cavill tells Empire Magazine (via ComicBookMovie). “Of course, if I’m on the press tour I’m in the movie. Obviously, you knew, and that was a different little tap dance we danced together. But for the audience, I wanted to leave some mystery. I think it’s important to have some mystery in movies these days.”

While Superman was left out of promotional materials, Cavill was not removed from the movie’s press tour. If it wasn’t obvious enough that Superman would return, the fact that Cavill was tasked with promoting the move in press appearances sealed the deal about the character’s return. As many fans asked themselves: Why would Cavill appear at “Justice League” press events if he wasn’t in the film?

Cavill also spoke to Empire about the infamous mustache debacle. When “Justice League” reshoots were announced, Cavill was in the middle of filming his role in “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” which contractually obligated him to keep his mustache. Warner Bros. was forced to reshoot scenes of Cavill as Superman and then digitally remove the mustache, which created a much-discussed upper lip problem in the final film.

“I was slightly surprised,” Cavill says about mustache response. “When we decided to go for the mustache, I certainly wasn’t expecting all the events to unfold as they were going to unfold. I wasn’t expecting ‘Justice League’ reshoots to be as extensive as they were. Unfortunately, it led to much dismay when ‘Justice League’ came out, but that’s the nature of these things. You can’t win every time.”

When asked about the negative response to the film from fans and critics, Cavill only had this to say: “I think all these things have their place and their time. There are many reasons why the audience have responded in the way they responded. It’s all lessons learned.”

Cavill next stars in “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” in theaters nationwide July 27.

Henry Cavill Pays Tribute to Newly Shaved Mustache: ‘This Is Not CGI. He’s Really Gone’ (Video)

Henry Cavill has shaved his infamous mustache — and posted a dramatic tribute video to prove it.

“Oh, hello,” the newly stubble-free actor said in the Instagram video on Tuesday. “Don’t be alarmed — it’s me, Henry Cavill. Sometimes superhero, and former secret agent. But now, completely clean shaven.”

He added, “sometimes, I even have trouble recognizing myself. This is not CGI, he’s really gone. I can tell you this though, I will remember him. Always.”

The video then launched into a series of photos of the mustache to Sarah McLachlan’s “I Will Remember You.” The montage then ended with the following note: “Shaved But Not Forgotten.”

Cavill grew out the facial hair for his role in “Mission: Impossible 6,” but reshoots for “Justice League,” in which Cavill plays Superman, ended up taking longer than expected.

Because shaving his mustache and then having to grow it again would have forced an alteration in the “Mission: Impossible 6” production schedule, Paramount forbade him from shaving it off while doing protracted “Justice League” reshoots. And as TheWrap reported back in July, Cavill ended up shooting a number of scenes as Superman while sporting a mustache in real life.

Warner Bros. dealt with Cavill’s mustache in post-production, attempting to use CGI to give Superman his normal clean-shaven look. And while, yes, you can’t see his mustache, Cavill’s upper lip doesn’t come through the process unscathed. In more than one scene in “Justice League” it’s very obvious that heavy CGI work was done on his mouth — and fans were quick to notice.

How This Newspaper in ‘Justice League’ Hints at Where Zack Snyder Might Have Taken DC’s Movieverse

We may never know what the original plan for “Justice League” was. The movie obviously underwent some major changes during its production, specifically when directing duties were handed off from Zack Snyder to Joss Whedon. But elements that made their way into the finished film seem to hint at what could have been.

We know a lot was added or changed in reshoots, particularly those that included Superman actor Henry Cavill and the CGI treatment used to airbrush off a mustache he’d grown for another role. There are also clues throughout the movie of story threads that seem like they were once a bigger deal — like when villain Steppenwolf mentions Darkseid, a much spookier adversary in the DC Comics world.

Steppenwolf’s Darkseid line (literally just “For Darkseid”) suggests this movie was setting up the greater threat, but in the final version of “Justice League,” Darkseid gets exactly one mention and no elaboration. Meanwhile, the movie’s post-credits scene suggests it’s Lex Luthor who will next threaten the heroes.

Another big hint at the “Justice League” plot that might have been is an early shot of a newspaper with some altogether bizarre and scary headlines. During the montage that shows how bad the world has gotten after the death of Superman in “Batman v. Superman,” the camera lingers on a front page that suggests a few things that “Justice League” never again mentions, but seemingly might have.

The newspaper is dominated by a somewhat-joking story featuring photos of Prince, David Bowie and Superman, asking, “Did they return to their home planet?” But other stories on the page suggest some really scary developments.

The most notable part of the newspaper is that it repeatedly references disease. The headline next to the photo showing Superman mentions a “super-germ” that could “wipe out humanity.”

Also Read: Let’s Try to Piece Together What Zack Snyder’s Version of ‘Justice League’ Was Like

Some kind of plague is mentioned half-heartedly in the background at another point in “Justice League,” but the idea is never expounded upon. The idea that a plague might have been part of the story at some point seems possible. It’s also backed up by another headline on the paper, noting an increase in mysterious birth defects. Yet another headline mentions something “waging war on humanity.”

The Metropolis Post in this case seems to be mirroring the tabloid New York Post, and so it might be that this newspaper is more joke than clue. Another headline toward the bottom of the paper states the White House is preparing to rent out is East Wing. Outwardly, the idea that the U.S. might be in such dire financial straits that it needs to rent out part of the White House seems pretty ridiculous.

Then again, the world of “Justice League” is a mess without Superman, and maybe these headlines do give some idea of what that world is like, or what elements might have become important in an earlier draft of the script. After all, “Justice League” sees the Earth attacked by aliens from another world, so really, none of this stuff is that much of a stretch.

We know “Justice League” was originally planned as two movies, so what we’re seeing on the Metropolis Post might be a hint at how Darkseid and Steppenwolf were aiming to destroy the world — through some kind of alien plague. That wouldn’t be too far out of step with the wasteland-like vision Batman had back in “Batman v. Superman,” really. Add a pandemic to a bunch of parademons and a possibly evil, resurrected Superman, and that image sounds a lot like what Batman foresaw.

Of course, the storyline hinted at in “Batman v. Superman” in which Superman went evil was abandoned in “Justice League,” or at the very least, postponed. Just because Superman is back and seemingly in okay shape at the end of “Justice League,” though, doesn’t mean aliens are done attacking Earth — or that the weird “super-germ” might not still be threatening humanity in the future.

As you may know, “Justice League” underwent significant reshoots under the supervision of Joss Whedon, and Paramount would not allow him to shave his “Mission: Impossible — Fallout” mustache while participating in those reshoots. So Warner Bros’ solution was to try to cover up the mustache with CGI — but it doesn’t really work. At all. Now that “Justice League” is out on home video and we can examine high-quality screencaps, let’s take a look at the worst shots of that horrendous CGI lip, in the order in which their scenes occurred in the movie.

You Could Be Deadpool’s Second Friend

The only account Deadpool has famously ever followed on Twitter is Hello Kitty’s — but now, the Merc with a Mouth is looking for a second friend.

“The one person I follow on Twitter says ‘You can never have too many friends!’ Guess it’s time to +1 the ol’ @Twitter following. Any suggestions? #BeDeadpools2nd,” Deadpool’s official Twitter account tweeted Tuesday.

People were quick to post their suggestions, going out on a limb to hopefully get noticed by Wade Wilson. In the comics, the Deadpool character has a somewhat unhealthy obsession with “The Golden Girls,” specifically with Bea Arthur. So naturally, many suggested Deadpool follow them if they have some connection to Arthur.

Fox just dropped a new profanity-laced “Deadpool 2” teaser trailer for all of the web to enjoy — with headphones, if you’re in public. Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), meet Cable (Josh Brolin): You guys shall be nemeses.

In the two-minute, 10-second preview video, Deadpool kicks through the fourth wall to goof on Brolin’s green-sleeve arm, which still needs to be made metal in postproduction.

“What in the actual ass?” Reynolds-as-Wilson asks of an off-camera crew member. “Dale! Why are the visual effects not done? It’s a metal arm! It’s not like we’re trying to remove a mustache!”

Yeah, that’s a shot at this “Justice League” reshoot issue over Henry Cavill’s facial hair as Clark Kent/Superman.
