“The cancer’s only in my liver, lungs, prostate and brain — all things I can live without.” So says superhero-to-be Wade Wilson before his transformation. Here’s the redband first trailer for Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds as Marvel’s wise-cracking, ass-kicking and very raging anti-hero. With a rap-heavy soundtrack, a little profanity and much, much violence, this is what to expect when the Fox flick arrives just in time for Valentine’s Day.
It tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative-turned-mercenary who undergoes a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers. Adopting the alter ego Deadpool, he hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano and Brianna Hildebrand also star in the pic from director Tim Miller and scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
The clip premiered during TBS’ Conan tonight. It’s slightly better quality that the footage leaked online out of Comic-Con last month. Have a look for yourself and tell us what you think.
