Everyone remember the 2009 superhero film X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Ryan Reynolds playing iconic anti-hero Wade Wilson, also known as Deadpool. Yeah… no one likes to remember that. Ryan Reynolds definitely doesn’t want to remember that.
After that fiasco, rumors spread of a spinoff film. Thankfully, those rumors are true and Reynolds became determined to honor the character that fans have come to love (personally, I loved his shot at DC’s Green Lantern, requesting not to make the supersuit green…or animated!). Yesterday, the first trailer for Deadpool was released. Keeping to Reynolds’ spirit and dedication to the X-Men universe member, here is the red-band trailer. Viewer discretion is advised.
The premise of the film from the official website: “Based upon Marvel Comics’ most-unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson (Reynolds), 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.”
Starring along with Reynolds are T.J. Miller (HBO’s Silicon Valley) as Weasel, Morena Baccarin (Fox’s Gotham), Gina Carano, and Andre Tricoteux as Colossus.
Deadpool is set to premiere on February 12, 2016.
In case any young children read this preview, here is the green band trailer for the anti-hero film.
