Deadpool Red Band Trailer

With Great Power Comes Great R-Rated Irresponsibility

August 5, 2015 by

After completely botching the character in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine and leaving fans hanging with a stinger shown after the credits, 20th Century Fox and Ryan Reynolds are teaming up once again to give Deadpool another shot.

This time, however, the Merc with a Mouth won’t have said mouth sewn shut and will be the star of his own R-rated film. In fact, the new Deadpool will be a reset made possible by X-Men: Days of Future Past and is even using hilarious fourth-wall-breaking witty remarks by the merc to acknowledge Reynold’s history of failed antihero and superhero roles.

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.

Deadpool is set for release on February 12, 2016, and also stars Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano, and Brianna Hildebrand.

    Those who long for r-rated superhero movies with excessive blood, sex, and cursing, are smaller in numbers than they think. Unless this is very low budget I don’t anticipate this making money. And Hollywood, please stop trying to make Ryan Reynolds a movie star leading man, we’re just not buying it.

    With all the hype just over the trailer / teaser I think it will go well. The first couple of weeks anyway. i am quite gullible and believe Ryan Reynolds to be a leading man. Not A grade but does well in his efforts – I mean look at him in BURIED. I though Oscar Nomination. surely. .
