Ryan Reynolds features in the honest trailer for ''Deadpool''

For the first time, a web series about fake movie trailers reached beyond movie buffs and comic book fanboys to the producers, studios, and stars that make the real films.

ScreenJunkies' Honest Trailers, which has close to 1 billion views since its start in 2012, is now starting to leverage that burgeoning Hollywood relationship.

The Defy Media brand, which releases parody trailers months after a theatrical release, is out with its Honest Trailer for the surprise 20th Century Fox hit Deadpool. But this time, it features the star himself, Ryan Reynolds, as the foul-mouthed fourth-wall-breaking Marvel superhero who plugs the film's DVD release.

For Andy Signore, Defy's Smooth Video Project of content and creator of ScreenJunkies, it was always his goal to get a celebrity to appear in one of the Honest Trailers, he just never thought it would happen. "And then Deadpool came around," he told Adweek.

Because the movie is chock-full of meta-humor and inside jokes about the superhero film industry, it ended up being the perfect marriage. "They're doing gags that we do," Signore said. "How do we try and one-up them?" The answer: get the star to poke fun at his own film.

In the weeks following the film's February release, Signore, and the Honest Trailer crew began tweeting at Reynolds, the film's writers, and even started talking to Fox. One day Reynolds responded: "Hey man, what's up with this honest trailer nonsense?" Signore remember. Despite being parodied in his first turn at being a superhero, the 2009 flop Green Lantern, Reynolds is a fan of the series.

While on location in Europe, Reynolds worked with Signore to record his voiceover. "He was very involved," Signore said. "Ryan does a really funny epic voice himself. He's doing Deadpool doing his epic voice."

And as its influence grows, Honest Trailers has become a part of the filmmaking conversation.
