Ryan Reynolds Jokes That Deadpool And Wolverine Is A "Paper-Thin" Sequel That Will Lower Your IQ

"This is cinema," Reynolds says.


The newest trailer for Deadpool and Wolverine is hiding a QR code that includes a disclaimer from star Ryan Reynolds about what fans can expect from the highly anticipated sequel. In his typical joking manner, Reynolds said Deadpool and Wolverine is nothing more than a paper-thin sequel that will lower your IQ. It should be fun and raise your heart rate, though, so that's something.

"We're very excited to be joining you July 26, but we should set the table correctly. This film is as paper thin as a sequel to Battlefield Earth. We're mostly going to beat each other senseless, make enemies with Disney, tell a few dick jokes, make a few jokes at my expense, make a lot of jokes at Hugh's expense, and completely sidestep Marvel's mandated after-credits sequence, which if you haven't figured it out yet, is always just a commercial for another movie which will invariably end with a commercial for another movie," Reynolds said.

He added: "So sit back, relax, let us lower your IQ and raise your heart rate while we travel to a vapid Dreamland, a place where grown men and grown women walk around in tights, and act like it's not a giant cultural cry for help. This is cinema."

While a lot of this statement is pretty funny and silly, the line about Deadpool and Wolverine not having an after-credits sequence is noteworthy (if Reynolds was being serious here). Most Marvel movies have a post-credits sequence that tees up the next Marvel movie, but it seems Deadpool and Wolverine won't do this, for whatever reason. Or maybe Reynolds was joking about this too.

Deadpool and Wolverine releases on July 26, and it is Marvel's one and only film in 2024. Some of Marvel's upcoming films for 2025 include Captain America: Brave New World, Thunderbolts, and The Fantastic Four.

In other Deadpool and Wolverine news, ticket-seller Fandango recently announced that the movie broke first-day sales records. Additionally, the stars of the movie have teamed up to sell beer.
