DEADPOOL has got to be my most anticipated film of 2016. And I’m betting that it’s yours too! We’ve had to endure reading countless with the filmmakers assuring us it was happening and that the integrity (and debauchery) of the character would remain in tact with a rated-R disclaimer. For awhile there, things looked bleak. But now there is cause for much celebration as the long form trailer is out and it shows the merc with a mouth in all his snarky, sassy and sexy glory!
If the red band offends your delicate sensibilities, take a look at the green band. Though, I gotta say, it’s not as good as the dirty red one above.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Ryan Reynolds can once again “have it” when DEADPOOL opens on February 12.
