The Marvel Cinematic Universe and associated films are full of “Easter Eggs.” It’s a huge part of what ties the movies together and gives them the depth and scope that they deserve. You can throw all of the explosions and fancy choreographed fight scenes that you want into the pot, but it’s definitely the small things that some hardly notice that makes the “true believers” feel like they are apart of a comicbook culture that ‘s living and thriving.
With Deadpool 2 about to smash a mangled fist into the big screen, many are still trying to figure out just what they can expect as Wade Wilson’s next big trick. This time around, you can count on some new friends to be teaming up with your favorite merc, as well as a complete loss of innocence, you know if it wasn’t gone already.
The hilarious plot summary for Deadpool 2 reads: “After surviving a near-fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the Yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.”
One could argue that Deadpool probably just broke the fourth wall again to write the synopsis himself. However, while sifting through the comedy of that blip there are some actual things of importance that stand out. One is an Easter egg and nods to Back to the Future with the “flux capacitator” line. It could also be a clever jab at Cable who will be doing some time traveling in the film as well. Then, of course, there are Yakuza and possible ninjas in the second trailer for Deadpool 2 which will more than likely resemble lunch meat after Wilson craves them up a bit.
