Deadpool is perhaps the only character that was created so that he could unapologetically mock everyone. This time around the mercenary with a mouth has found a new target.

This one happens to be Marvel’s rival DC’s major movie. The anti-hero has targeted one of the most talked about scenes from this movie. This scene, in fact, has found itself becoming the butt of many jokes.

Deadpool mocks Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Screen Rant reported that Deadpool has used his talent to mock DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This latest mockery is not in the movie but from Deadpool’s latest comic.

In the fifth and the final issue of the new Marvel miniseries Deadpool vs. The Punisher, Deadpool carried out the same Martha scene from the DC movie and had The Punisher accompany him. The Punisher did not take part in the joke but it was Deadpool alone that pulled it off with ease.

Martha scene in Deadpool vs. The Punisher #5

In the comic, Deadpool and the Punisher are pitted against each other. Their fight takes place because of the main villain. After what appears to be a gruesome fight, Deadpool seems to have gained an upper hand.

He does not look much injured but he has managed to injure the Punisher substantially. Just when readers start to believe that Wade Wilson will kill Frank Castle, he hears the word Martha. He stops the fight and takes a moment’s pause to show some emotions. He then goes on about how people whose mother’s name is the same should not fight.

But he picks up his gun and points it at the Punisher when he is told that his mother’s name was not Martha.

It was a lot more serious in the movie than it is in the comic book. Batman had managed to weaken Superman and was beating the life out of him. He dragged him and was about to stab him with a Kryptonite spear when Superman uttered the words Save Martha! 

Batman stopped immediately and asked Superman as to why did he say that name. It was only when Lois told the dark knight that Martha is Superman’s mother’s name, he realized his mistake and threw the spear away.

All his hatred for Superman went away almost immediately as he proceeded to save Superman’s mother while Superman confronted Lex Luthor.

A similar scene in Deadpool 2?

Deadpool was full of jokes and friendly stabs at other characters. Going by that, there are chances Ryan Reynolds’ character might just take a friendly swing at the infamous scene from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in Deadpool 2.

He has started filming some scenes for the movie and going by the characters in it, chances are one of them could get dragged in a mock scene. Maybe Deadpool will ask Cable about his mother’s name and proceed to make a joke about it.

He could do the same with Colossus, Domino or the main villain of the movie before killing him. It could also be included as a fourth-wall breaking scene where the mercenary talks to the audiences about what his mother’s name is.

Plot and release date

Deadpool 2 does not have an official plot but reports have confirmed that it will be a time-travelling adventure for Deadpool and Cable. Josh Brolin has been cast in the role of Cable, the future leader of X-Force.

Zazie Beetz is playing Domino and Colossus along with Negasonic Teenage Warhead will be joining the three from the previous movie. Deadpool 2 will release next year on June 1.
