We all know that Wade Wilson will defend everything Canadian in the “Deadpool” franchise and now the latest ‘Once Upon a Deadpool’ has him taking it up a notch by defending… Nickelback. Yes, the Canadian rock band that everyone loves to hate gets a special shout-out by Fred Savage by calling them “overproduced, formulaic ear garbage” before Ryan Reynolds demands he take it back in a way you could only expect from the Merc with the Mouth.
This trailer is full of emotion, mainly humor, and just another reason why you’ll be wanting to check out the film. Hopefully Marvel Studios greenlights a third film once they have control over the ‘X-Men’ and ‘Fantastic Four’ assets from Fox.

The movie is slated to have 20-minutes of new footage which includes the Fred Savage scenes and footage from the original movie was changed to achieve that PG-13 rating.
I feel that the best part about this, though, is that it isn’t a pure cash grab by Reynolds and Fox as every ticket sale is going to help fight cancer:
“Because it’s the season of giving, we will also be giving $1 for every ticket sold to F-ck Cancer, which will be renamed Fudge Cancer just for this limited-time ad campaign. Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006. I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining…”
