There’s literally nothing I can say to lead this one off… The header says it all, let’s just get right to the debut and red band trailer for Deadpool, and yes, it’s to kill for!
Based upon Marvel Comics most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
If you say you don’t like this trailer or that it looks dumb, I don’t believe you at all. This is a somewhat edited version of the trailer that dropped at Comic-Con last month and just as then, it’s un-freaking-believable! It’s one of the most fun I’ve had watching a trailer in a long time, it’s pure bliss. This movie has been in the works for a VERY long time and it seems like that time was well spent as Tim Miller, Ryan Reynolds, and team have given us the PERFECT incarnation of the Merc with a Mouth.
From the trailer it feels like Deadpool was torn right from the pages of his own comic book and cast in a movie. Ryan Reynolds has been backing this movie for years and we are so freaking lucky that we have a dude like this who’s doing so, because there is literally nobody in the history of planet earth who could play the character better, nobody. From there you have the brutal humor of the character which is SO good and the right amount of fourth wall breaking that will bring a really, really cool aspect to the film.
All in all, it looks like they got the character and his world right. We’re so lucky it was given an R-rating because it wouldn’t have worked any other way. Deadpool looks like it’s everything we dreamed it would be more. February cannot come any f**king faster.
Deadpool slashes his way into theaters on February 12th, 2016. Directed by Tim Miller starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano, Ed Skrein, Brianna Hildebrand, Rachel Sheen, and Andre Tricoteux.
