Did You Catch The Blake Lively Joke In The Deadpool 2 Trailer?

Deadpool's self-aware, sarcastic, and tongue-in-cheek style is what's had people so excited for the sequel coming out on May 18, but the most recent trailer for the superhero comedy might have just had its most meta moment yet. Following the initial teaser starring Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) as Bob Ross, Thursday's full trailer finally gives a detailed look at what to expect from this summer blockbuster which, it turns out, has a lot to say about Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants.
While most of the trailer re-introduces us to old faces, it also brings out some new ones for the formation of "X Force," a group made up of "tough, morally flexible" heroes "young enough to carry their own franchise for four to 10 years."

However, the funniest moment comes near the end, when Reynolds-as-Deadpool says, "Doing the right thing is messy, but if you want to fight for what's right, sometimes you have to fight dirty. And that is why Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants is pure pornography."
This would amusing on its own, but it's made doubly hilarious when you remember that Blake Lively, Reynolds' wife, starred in Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants 1 and 2. This mention is basically a cameo for Lively, who has been busy filming A Simple Favor and The Rhythm Section. We're still holding out for these two to team up again since they both starred in Green Lantern, but if this is the beginning of a trend of the two shading each other in their movies, then we're just as on board with that as well.
