    Here Are The 9 Jokes "Deadpool 2" Makes About "Infinity War"

    “Hey, big guy. Sun's gettin' real low.”

    As you are well aware, Avengers: Infinity War is currently crushing it, both at the box office and in our hearts.


    And Deadpool 2, the newest Marvel-ish* movie, is premiering this weekend.


    *Deadpool is a Marvel property that's produced by both 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios.

    So, of course, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) — the snarkiest, most self-referential, fourth wall-breaking antihero in the superhero universe — delivers some true zingers about the Avengers and Infinity War during Deadpool 2. Here they all are, and obviously, SPOILERS:

    1. "My superpower is just unbridled cancer. Give me a bow and arrow and I'm basically Hawkeye."


    When Deadpool and Russell (Julian Dennison) are trapped in a mutant prison, their powers are immobilized by these government collars that are super hard to remove unless you have a grenade or an ass pen. So Deadpool's cancer comes back, and his one-liners become all the more powerful. Sorry, Hawkeye (but also, show me the lie).

    2. "What did I do to piss off a grumpy old fucker with a Winter Solider arm?"


    While still trapped in that same prison, Deadpool and Russell first lay eyes on Cable (Josh Brolin) and his budget-ass Bucky arm.

    3. "At what point do I get to say, 'Enough with the robotic arms?'"


    When Cable tells Deadpool he's from the future, this is the third of three very important questions Deadpool asks him about what's to come. The other two are, of course, "Is dubstep still a thing?" and "Which Sharknado are we on?"

    4. "You're so dark. You sure you're not from the DC Universe?"

    20th Century Fox

    OK, this isn't technically an Avengers joke, but it's meta and hilarious so it deserves to be included.

    5. "Zip it, black Black Widow."

    20th Century Fox

    Deadpool's not wrong. Domino is as badass as Natasha, and what I would give to see them team up.

    6. “Hey, big guy. Sun's gettin' real low.”


    Deadpool trying to violently lull the Juggernaut to sleep like Natasha does with the Hulk is pure gold. It's his second Black Widow reference (which is technically from Avengers: Age of Ultron and not Infinity War), and definitely the funniest. It's just as funny a gag as it was in Thor: Ragnarok.

    7. "I bet you do, Brown Panther."


    Deadpool gives this honorary title to Dopinder after he mows down the villainous headmaster of Essex House for Mutant Rehabilitation.

    8. "You time-slidin' son of a bitch."

    20th Century Fox

    Actor Josh Brolin plays both Cable, the kinda villain in Deadpool 2, and Thanos, the indisputable villain in Infinity War. Both Cable and Thanos use time devices at the end of each movie to alter events and change what we thought would be the ending. Deadpool gets two Thanos digs in, and this is one of them.

    9. "Zip it, Thanos."


    And this is Deadpool's second Thanos dig. The end.
