Deadpool Stars In Trailers for Fantastic Four and His Own Movie Trailer

When did comic books get so serious? Most superhero movies are action-packed dramatic affairs, but it seems somewhere along the way, we forgot that comic books are funny. Hollywood is starting to come around on that front, though: Will Ferrell collaborator Adam McKay co-wrote Ant-Man, and now Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool is absolutely blowing up the Internet with hilarity by turning the film trailer game on its head.

In the past two days, two trailers featuring Deadpool have been released, but neither were actually for the Deadpool movie. No way, because Deadpool is way more meta than that, so meta that he released a trailer for a trailer for Deadpool, in which “five-time Academy Award viewer Ryan Reynolds” hypes up the film teaser with news that the trailer will be out tomorrow… er, today now.

Then this morning, a new trailer for Fantastic Four was released, and of course it features Deadpool, this time promoting the full-length Deadpool trailer that will air before the movie. We’re so enamored by Deadpool’s entire promotional campaign that we’ll ignore the re-use of footage from the Deadpool trailer trailer in the Fantastic Four trailer. Watch both below while we try to predict where the hell Deadpool will pop up next and when we’ll actually get to see this Deadpool trailer we keep hearing about.

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
