If you didn’t attend this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, that means you missed out on all the cool new trailers for tomorrow’s hottest cinematic properties (mostly from DC Comics this year). This also means you’re probably searching YouTube for leaked versions of all the awesomeness you didn’t get to experience yourself, squinting intently just to make out every blurry detail some dude’s iPhone couldn’t capture.
Well, if that’s a case, here’s another leaked trailer worth your strained vision!
The cast and crew of Deadpool took to San Diego this year to promote their upcoming superhero flick, and brought a BADASS first trailer that hit the West Coast so hard, tremors could be felt up and down California (unconfirmed). But if you’ve somehow avoided all the Deadpool frenzy these last few years, here’s a quick recap: Ryan Reynolds is playing the Merc With A Mouth, it’s SUPER R-rated, totally breaks the fourth wall, and looks to redeem Reynolds’ first failed attempt at playing Wade Wilson.
If this first trailer is anything like the final product, I’d say that director Tim Miller is doing a damn fine job handling Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick’s supposedly dynamite screenplay. From what we can see, Deadpool is built on EVERYTHING his Wolverine incarnation isn’t. He can talk, his constant sarcasm is definitely present, he curses like a sailor, kicks loads of ass, and looks like an “avocado had sex with an older avocado.” Reynolds even squeaks in a dig at his lackluster run as Green Lantern as well, shouting “…and please don’t make the super suit green! Or animated!” right before his operation. Can someone please explain why this movie took SO LONG to get greenlit?!
Joining Reynolds are Morena Baccarin as Copycat, Ed Skrein as Ajax, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Andre Tricoteux as Colossus, and Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead (who has THE COOLEST NAME EVER according to Deadpool). It’s a cast that’s built for both action and comedy, which drives home the fact that Miller knows the Deadpool movie fans want – nay – NEED.
Since this is only the leaked version, be sure to check back for the official release of the Deadpool trailer, and then raise your chimichangas for a celebratory toast! Of course, you’ll have to wait until February 12th, 2016 for the film’s actual release, but based on this first taste of content, it’ll be damn worth the wait!
