I realize fourth wall is Deadpool's thing, but the pop culture references would be dated in a lightning quick manner, and I struggle to imagine there'd be anything resembling stakes or connection here-- just the mouth, not much of the merc.
Plus, a first-time director whose specialty is effects? Rarely works out well. Even more rarely when Reynolds is your lead.

Don't know the comics very well but I assumed it would be darker. This seemed like a lot of corny jokes during a violent fight. But maybe that's who he is.
Also, instead of the silly banana/brown pants bit, I'd have preferred a fourth wall comment on stuff like the guy on the bike inexplicably stopping and shooting up the truck or not hitting anything. "Movie villains always make it so easy" or "How much you wanna bet he's gonna unload that clip and not hit me once?"
There could be an interesting send-up of comic book/action films here but this clip just seemed like a more violent version of The Mask.

it's my main problem with how I see him portrayed in video games/tv shows today, he doesn't sound like the character I imagined he would growing up & I think it would add more to his main bit of being the merc with a mouth if he sounds less like an exited dork, vocally and more like a tortured mutant in constant pain who has been experimented on
I don't like Reynolds but Deadpool can be a great character & the test footage looked pretty cool
