Besides all The Walking Dead, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, or Ghostbusters hype, what seemed to get the highest recognition was leaking the second trailer to 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool on Comic-Con which plans to come out next year as an r-rated film.
Ryan Reynolds is reprising his role as the wisecracking “merc with a mouth” to poke fun at himself in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Green Lantern (2011) and to break the fourth wall while killing endless amounts of generic bad guys. If you remember back in 2009, they took away Deadpool’s mouth which nearly ruined his reputation. This reboot will bring him back from the depths of despair.
This trailer goes more in depth as to why Wade Wilson (Deadpool) wears his signature black and red costume. His face gets horribly burned or begins decomposing so he undergoes an experiment to accelerate his healing cellular properties that turn him into a superhero or villain. Weapon X who was responsible for applying Wolverine’s bones with adamantium steel is also behind Wilson’s transformation.
Some other mercenaries are introduced into the fold like X-Men’s Colossus and heroines from the Marvel Universe like Copycat and Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Can you repeat that? Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
T.J. Miller plays a guy to make fun of Wilson’s face with some vulgar language. “You look like Freddy Krueger face f**ked a topical graphic map of Utah,” Miller tells Reynolds across a table.
This is not your normal well behaved Marvel character, he has a tendency to swear and kill people without a conscious. However, he has loads of fun while doing it and I think we will too. It’ll be a roller coaster ride.
The trailer highlights what all Deadpool fans want from the movie, the sense of humor, the pump action violence, the sex, and the cursing. This is the role Reynolds was born to play.
IMDb‘s Deadpool page reveals its release on February 16, 2016. The movie will be directed by newcomer, Tim Miller who done visual effects work on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Mass Effect 2. Check out the trailer from the San Diego Comic-Con panel here.
