You know. ‘Tis the season.
And, suffice to say, a thorough blanketing of f-bombs—because really, would it be a Deadpool gag reel without a bit of cursing?
San Diego Comic-Con isn’t just about the panels. There are also tons of cool pop-ups, special events, and fun prizes for the con’s hundreds of thousands of attendees.

Marvel was, in fact, in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday night this year. Only, it wasn’t Marvel Studios teasing the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was Deadpool making its triumphant return since debuting the first footage from the first film back in 2015.

Deadpool 2 is so packed with references and jokes about every single genre and property imaginable (and some unimaginable, too), trying to cover them all comprehensively is basically impossible. So we’re going with quality over quantity instead: These are our favorite surprises—the characters, references, one-liners,…
Deadpool 2 had a weird marketing campaign. One of its earliest salvos was an odd trailer that featured Deadpool playing out the role of Bob Ross.
