Since kicking off in February 2012, Honest Trailers has spent more than five years skewering the faulty logic, questionable plotting, and erratic character development of major blockbusters. Now, the Defy Media-produced web series, which lives on the Screen Junkies channel, is celebrating its 200th episode in grand style. It’s latest installment features Ryan Reynolds, who arrives in character as Deadpool to help poke fun at the Marvel film Logan.
Logan, the newest chapter in the X-Men film canon, received universal praise upon its release in March 2017, and most of the movie’s Honest Trailer episode features uncharacteristic praise rather than mockery. In order to give viewers some of the cracks they came for, the Defy Media team called in Reynolds, who also showed up on the Emmy-nominated and Streamy-winning web series last year. As Deadpool, Reynolds is an equal-opportunity offender, dishing out gags aimed at Logan, Screen Junkies, and YouTube.
200 episodes is no small feat, and it puts Honest Trailers in rare territory among weekly web series. Andy Signore, the show’s co-creator, made sure to note the milestone while showing his fans some love on Twitter.
