As promised on Wednesday, a new trailer for Deadpool was released into the world this morning. Two trailers, in fact — one that Fox dubbed “naughty” and the other, seen here, “nice.” Bodies, cars and F-bombs fly with equal abandon on both. Depending on the depth of your immersion in warm and fuzzy Christmas cheer, neither version is Safe For Family Viewing, but there it is.
Directed by Tim Miller and written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, Deadpool stars Reynolds (who also co-produces) as the Merc with the mouth, along with
Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano, T. J. Miller as Deadpool’s BFF Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and newly-cast Stefan Kapičić as Colossus. It hits theaters February 12.
Based on 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.
